I stayed here when i visited Penang for PBIM 2018. I got all the satisfaction I needed. Lots of shops and food around. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Penang. Anyone staying here would love what is referred to as Glow Penang experience.

Hi Jigar, the nearest best vegetarian restaurant would be Woodlands Vegetarian Restaurant (Indian Dish) and it will take approximately 11 minutes from the hotel.
