    The front desk lady help me so much! The location so good. Walking distance area. Very easy to find food during night time. This hotel also come with breakfast. 24hour market also easy to find.

    The sound from the club too noisy. The music plays until 5.30am. Can't sleep well.

    I was disappointed with my stay. I could hear street noise / music from a late night bar in my eighth floor hotel room literally all night. It was very difficult to sleep. The Hotel condition was Fair and the Free Breakfast was Poor. The area around the hotel and this area of Penang is rundown and not particularly nice to walk around. I also did not appreciate the Front Desk Staff forgetting to provide a Wake a Call that they assured me would be provided. Will not be back.
