The staff was kind to change our rooms to higher floors at level 14 which we could have a glimpse of the Georgetown coastal sea. Really grateful ..."…"

Love the historical town, the street arts, food hawker stalls - plenty of choices to eat, everything was walkable distance. Love the history of the green and blue mansion. The blue mansion was so gorgeous! Liked Little India and Chinatown.
