Although hotel not new the room was quite comfortable -and spotlessly clean. Staff spoke English and were very pleasant and helpful. Although did not eat there apart from breakfast, the food appeared to be be well presented with a large selction.

Stayed there for a weekend .Booked 3 rooms and where all comfortable with good airconditioning.As it is an old hotel some renovation/change need to be done . Otherwise for the price you pay its a good deal.I was worried though reading all the negative comments of the hotel but it proved otherwise. Just change some furniture and fittings any you are on the way up...........

I am surprised that this hotel is still rated as three-star on your site. It has been a complete disappointment. The hotel is highly under-staffed, the rooms are too small and badly maintained. The services are too slow. I strongly recommend that this hotel should be removed from your list.

Best things about this hotel were roof top swimming pool on 23rd floor, great view of Komtar from room, just a few minutes walk to Komtar, breakfast, and no problem at checkin and checkout. Bad things were filthy bath, (shower over bath) and could scratch the grime build up off the side of bath with fingernail! Room was neat but very tired and in need of an urgent renovation. Also shared room with a few cochroaches.

Our hotel room was incredibly dirty, tired and run down. However the location is fantastic and the swimming pool was great.

The hotel is pretty much very old. The facilities are also poorly maintained. Really not recommended if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay.

Building and rooms are not properly upkeep. Cupboard are run down.Celiling shows signs of leakage. Suitable for budget travellers who don't mind these conditions.

The hotel looked a bit tired and the cost of rooms, even at last minute [your website] prices, was high for the quality of hotel.

Morning breakfast had not much of variety and not appetising. Where I check in at 2pm, I have opted for double bed but was given a queen size bed with a super single; paying the unnecessary bigger room rates. Basically it is only 1 nite and hence didn't make a fuss. The location of this hotel is defintely central of GeorgeTown whereby 5min walk to bus interchange could bring you to many tourist attraction site cheaply.

The room size given is quite big what I suspected. Hopefully next time we can view cable tv as well because the tv channels are very limited.

Location is the best selling point of this hotel. Noise from the elevator can be quite annoying at night, even though my room is one of the farthest away.

I booked two standard deluxe rooms at 1407 & 1411 which have no connecting rooms. The deluxe room comes with one double bed and single bed. More for triple stay. The room size is bigger than expected. Please beware there is no such thing as connecting rooms in this hotel. Only complaint against this hotel is the toilet. Run down and to flush need to pull plunger to maximum before anything can be flushed down the toilet bowl. Good shopping and transport nearby the hotel.

Stayed at 11th floor and still have nice view of the city and sea. Hotel is near the Bus Interchange which makes it convenient for travelling around the island. Staff are helpful but should have more deployed during the festive period.
