Went to this hotel on Jan2017 with my wife. It's a old building with not so proper maintenance, hence, do not expect too much. The hotel provide car park, and it is worth to park your car without having worry on getting any ticket for wrong parking in Penang. Also, is someone walk by your room, you can easily heard...

Staff is ok, friendly, and breakfast in Hainanese Delights restaurant is quite tasty, its included in the price. There is a pool which seems ok, but room cleanleness was well below standards.

Rooms are rather 'small' but good enough to place an extra bed (which we requested on booking). Breakfast included in booking, is rather limited on...

This place us a very heritage setting, long corridors and design. Quite helpful reception staff. Rooms are clean but a little run-down, still a good place to stay. Staying near to the swimming could be quite noisy, children running around N screaming. Food is average. Getting around is quite a breeze with the GRAB apps. There's a night food court...
