Affordable room rate BUT : The room seems renovated but not shower room and you can spot the yellow mark on the bed sheet and shower room. Car park available that's good for those who has their own transport. Anyway the housekeeping service is good but the shower room wasn't give me a pleasant experience.

The positive reviews that I have read prior stating were very misleading. Yes it's cheap but it's not worth your spend if you don't mind tolerating dirty and dusty rooms , and not forgetting the toilets/bathrooms, as a bonus we had ants in ours. I think the folks there don't really understand the simple concept of maintaining cleanliness. Worse place...

You really need to check your room before paying. We didn't and spent a night from hell. The rooms are dated and dirty, we even had ANTS. The manager was apologetic and we were quickly refunded. There are nicer rooms however you need to sight them and we were offered an upgrade. If it's all you can afford then take...

The hotel is a bit dated but the price is reasonable. Location is very good. Nagore Square, New World Park, Penang Road are all within walking distance. Front office service is good. A hot / cold water dispenser is provided along the hallway. Free Internet service

We were in town for a quick meeting and were booked into Garden Inn. The hotel was bright and clean with ample parking. Service was good and prompt. Room and bathroom were clean, TV was clear and had at least 8 channels to chose from. There is a food court nearby, just a minutes walk away. All in all, I...

I had a meeting in Penang recently and I decided to book a hotel which was close to my meeting place. I opted for Garden Inn since it is within walking distance to my meeting venue. This hotel looks average from the outside and a bit run down. The receptionist was okay, not too friendly but not too bad. The...

Hotel rooms is clean and cozy. Though it is situated a little 'far' away from the central area, you'll be surprised at how convenient it is! Just a turn take a turn (while facing the road), to the right you get a eating place that operates in the morning, while taking a left turn takes you to a stretch of...
