Couple holiday

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Room was nicely situated with 180 degree view of the Strait. Staff were courteous and helpful at all times and we were always greeted with a smile when we needed to attend reception. Only drawback was we had an early morning flight and booked and paid for a taxi the night prior to leaving with an agent who it appears is to operate from the hotel foyer. The taxi did not arrive so had to get the reception clerk to call another one for us.

Disappointed

I've always stayed here when I'm in Georgetown - I don't think I will anymore. I was given a standard room - it was pokey and the facilities were not up to par. The shower hook was low, no hand towels or face towels (only upon request) and the bar fridge was noisy. I was only allocated a new room the next day. It used to be quite decent - now it has really fallen from grace. Pity

Not as good as expected, but given good discount might go again

Located towards the far end of Georgetown, bus to Komtar is 5 mins. The music from the roof top bar blasted past 1am daily so if you stay on higher floors (eg. >10) you can hear it. My booking comes with free $20 vouchers and upgrade to next category, vouchers can be used in lounge or restaurant, I used it on alcohol and bar snacks. Upgrade is not given according to reception superior rooms are fully booked, I didn't believe that but didn't argue further.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are into pubs and clubs there are many around the areas, including bigger Thai discos, smaller pubs where you can watch your sports channel, bars where you can hook up girls (not free), else nothing much. You can find cheap nice food nearby as well. e.g.. Red Garden (hawker style)
