              Near for everything.

              The Water pressure of water heater are very poor unbalance.The breakfast ok only because for the two days I stay I see same only. Need to improve on this two I think so

              Good location. Excellent decoration at the exterior.

              1) Found a cockroach. They should do pest control in every room on monthly basis. 2) Should use room access card rather than normal key. 3) Should put up some pictures for interior room decoration. The wall is very plain without anything. 4) The bed sheet is a little smelly due to poor air ventilation. The room keeper should apply deodorant or fragrant on the bed sheet everytime when they clean up the room. 5) The room light is a little dim. 6) Very poor breakfast.

              Location

              Poor facillities and services. Not a 3 star property as advertised, rather more a glorified backpackers and overpriced. Much better value elsewhere.

              very nice interior. this hotel used to be a mansion that belonged to a rich family. the new owners restored it very well. it is filled with nice chinese furniture, very quaint. there were some very luxe rooms with jacuzzi and long bath, but we didn't check those out. our basic room was big and clean. reception lady was informative, friendly, accommodating and helpful. felt safe! it was also good to have a base to return to in the relentless heat of georgetown.

              skip the complimentary breakfast and head out for some authentic dim sum nearby (~60myr :p

              The welcome I received at reception was fantastic and put me at ease and comfortable in the knowledge that the staff would be able to help with any questions I might have. My main reason for visiting Penang was to go to the Thai consulate and renew my Thai visa, and upon check in was informed the hotel could do that for me, all I needed to do was put my signature and adress on the form and supply two photos and they would do the rest for me. The next day at 4.00pm my passport was back with the visa. The time and hassle that saved me was well worth the small admin fee. The hotel itself is lovely with a fantastic reception area, with a water feature, colonial style, with high ceilings and nicely furnished. The outdoor (covered) dining area is a great place to chill with a drink and chat to new friends. The location in Georgetown makes it perfect to explore the many features of the city on foot. Only minutes away from some great places to eat as well as bars etc. You can also walk to the ferry for Butterworth in around 10/15 minutes.

              The location is good. All important sights are easy reachable by foot. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
