Club room

We picked this hotel because others said the location was good. Well for us it wasn't, and we were not impressed with new lane food either. It is too far from the heritage area and too busy. The hotel itself has been done up really nicely, but the beds are hard. The club room b'fast is a farce, not much choice, 6 staff standing around, we were the only ones there both days. The evening snacks were good. Recommend Royal Bintang where we went after.

Awesome Hotel Stay

The Hotel room is spacious with 2 single bed, nice breakfast and allows us to check in early when we arrive in the morning. People there are nice, service is great. Weather is very hot so at the entrance there will be reception drinks (Ice-Cold Water). Many eatery area nearby such as Dim Sum Restaurant, Bak Kuh Tea and at night street food nearby (6pm - 12am). If walk further up the hotel, there is the BBQ Steamboat buffet cost about SGD$10. Very cheap. With Cooked food, dim sum, tea, cooked crab, ice-cream etc. Shopping Centre and the Komtar bus interchange is like 10mins walk away. With CAT Free Shuttle bus around Georgetown. Breakfast have a variety of food but the same everyday. Still very yummy. The waitress and waiter clear the table very fast and are always willing to help. Will sure recommend my friends to stay here.

Enjoyable stay

Was great coz I hv got that extra 20 off using the coupon LUCKY20.. My last stay in this hotel was many years ago.. Had read some reviews from friends who had stayed and they all told me it's a very tired and rundown hotel.. but as soon as I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised.. the whole place was renovated, lobby is so much brighter and bigger, looks bigger.. rooms r also of a decent size, can easily open 2 suitcases. Bathroom was clean wt a hairdryer and simple amenities.. Security was good, need keycard into slot in lift b4 u can press the desired floor. Breakfast was very good.. western mixed wt Asian food, from hot soup noodles and hot TeowChew porridge to eggs cooking station, fried eggs, half-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, u name it, they make it. Breads, fruits, everything was on the buffet table.. Inclusive in my room rates. Check-in and check-out staff were great and good in their service. Was raining and they lend us an umbrella too.. nice touch.. :) Location was great, Penang street food everywhere, foot massage opposite the hotel, a shopping mall, Times Sq is just 3 mins walk away.. but the mall is tired and looks deserted.. dun waste time here.. Not so good: our room 507 faces the front of the hotel, view was not excellent but can still see the skyline of the city . the windows was closed and locked and yet, not too far away on New Lane, there is this food center and the smell of fried food can seep into our room.. hmmm.. strange, maybe my next stay I will avoid the front of the hotel..

Convenient

We booked 3 rooms from 18/3/2015 to 21/3/2015. Managed to get 2 connected rooms and another room at same floor. Location was very good,walking distance to Komtar, Pranglin Mall and 1st avenue shopping mall. You can find the famous Penang Road Teochew Chendol at Pranglin Mall. Bakery and biscuits shop just at the corner and street food at night just outside the hotel (closed on wed). We even walked back from Kimberly Street to the hotel and took about 20 mins. Room was clean except the drainage at Rm 923 stinks, maybe hotel should do something about it as Rm 908 & 910 was fine. Breakfast was average. There is a taxi stand in front of hotel which U can travel within georgetown at a fixed rate of RM12 per trip. Time Square is just nearby but we didn't try and GAMA is also walking distance. Will recommend this hotel because of its strategic location.

Tiring but fun

Easy access to walk around the town and street food at night if you are not too fussy about the surrounding. The smell & the experience, I was told is Penang. I didn't have any problem with my stomach. Must try the massage place across the hotel - Nagoya. I'm there every night after a long hot day walking around. Therefore the hotel is great. Very happy with it. Will go back again if I'm there next.

Great stay!

All are good except that the room do not come with slip-on slipper. Disappointed as the carpet seems quite dusty.

GOOD EXPERIENCE VERY GOOD HOTEL

ONE OF THE BEST 4 STARS HOTEL I STAY. THE SERVICE IS EXCELLENT. THE ONLY THINK IS YOU HAVE TO WALK A LOT TO GO TO OLD GEORGETOWN ( ABOUT 20 MINS) IT'S PRETTY CLOSE TO KOMTAR (10 MINS WALK)

Couple

Booked a room for five nights four months earlier but the rate was later found higher than that was booked on check-in day. Our first night on 9/f facing to west was an unpleasant stay as the music from an open area karaoke lasted from 9 till 1 midnight. We requested to change to another room facing to the east with nicer view of George Town. There were ants crawling on the long desk so we told the receptionist in the next morning but ants were still there when we returned at night, until we had to call for housekeeper to disinfect the desk.
