Good service
Staff are well trained and seem genuinely concerned that you have a pleasant stay. Rooms are clean and reasonably spacious for the price. A few KMs from the centre of Georgetown, but there's a mall nearby

Good value if you don't mind the area
Friendly, attentive and helpful staff. Rooms big enough for a couple of days, and cleaned to a good standard compared to other hotels in Malaysia. Hotel located a couple if KMs from the centre with limited local amenities and noisy local karaoke until 1am. I'm not bothered by this, do would stay again

Off the beaten path but well worth the effort
A very clean, apparently family run hotel with attentive service. Our room didn't have any windows but that was almost the only complaint I could imagine for this place. There is a famous char kway teow stand immediately next door which was excellent but be prepared for a long wait. The rooms were clean, the ac, hot water and wifi worked well and there was lots of places to eat in the immediate vicinity. A lot of bang for the buck.
