7am breakfast, only 1 person is working and not quite ready to serve your guests. Coffee machine not working and no one to ask. No one is there. The bread is straight out from the fridge. The location is next to a motorcycle shop. Very noise when they are testing their customers bike. Room is clean.

Liked: Cleanliness
Location is very good and staff friendly, but concierge services were poor when seeking advice re places to eat. The room was comfortable and had a nice balcony, but one floorboard was broken, covered by a mat. Breakfast was disappointing - many items in the warmers were cold and it was hit and miss getting eggs cooked the way you liked depending on who was on duty. Often food that had run our was not restocked in a timely manner at times leaving little choice. Overall it appeared that the kitchen was understaffed and not particularly vigilant.

Super cute, but the hardest mattresses ever
This hotel is *super* cute, and the breakfast spreads were quite good (I've had better, but those were pretty extreme). The location is great for walking around downtown. Note that the Transfer rooms require walking up two flights of stairs. The wifi speed was good, but maxed out on three devices. The second day there wasn't a lot of hot water for some reason. Check-in was a bit slow, but not unreasonably so. My biggest problem was that the beds were *super* hard. While I hope to visit Penang again, I won't be staying at this hotel just because of the mattresses, they were that bad. It was practically just a 1-inch layer of foam on top of a box-spring, it was that hard. Unfortunately hard mattresses are sort of a southeast asian thing so I am not sure other places will be much better either.

This hotel is in the perfect location. It had everything you need and very comfortable as well. Can be a little noisy as itโ€™s located on a main road but itโ€™s not too bad and they do provide you with ear plugs. Excellent staff, everything is as described on the site as well.
