"Good location. Fast Wifi. Friendly staff."

I was surprised on the location how convenient it is. I stayed only for a night in Penang so my hotel didn't need to be lavished! Am on a budget anyway! It's walking distance to the Upper Penang Road where night life begins. I had a massage nearby and right next to the massage place was a British pub so I grabbed a beer then off went home in this hotel. I'm thankful that they allowed me early check in at 8:30am so far, it's more than enough for me.

"Good, basic accommodation with friendly staffs"

The price that I paid for the rooms are no way indicative of the star rating given to the hotel; it may be a 2 star establishment charging prices in the region of 90 - 120 MYR per night, the services rendered and the convenient location of this hotel is however truly one the best I've ever encountered/been to and rival almost the 3, 4 stars establishments around that area. Tip: Get one of the front facing rooms, and you will not be disappointed with the sight that greets you in the morning.
