  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Staff was friendly. The room seem clean but unlucky I got bug bite and it was so itchy that woke me up in the early morning. It was 10 spots on my legs.

  • Disliked: Room comfort

Okay stay, walkable to main attractions

The location was good, walking distance to Komtar and the love lane area. The staff very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, had a kettle and tv with a few English channels. The big downside was the WiFi, it was rubbish. Overall an okay stay.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The location is very good- on a quiet side street, yet still a walking distance to the Chinatown. The staff was very nice. The hotel is basic, clean and has free water to refill your bottle, kettle for tea in the room and also free coffee and tea in the lobby. The shower is pretty basic but ok. There was some noise in the room at night that woke us up- water in the pipes is really loud when guests in other rooms flush or use the shower. The optional Breakfast is good and cheap although Western- we were hoping for some local food. Overall a good hotel to explore Georgetown.
