Great place to stay for a couple for one or two nights, particularly if you intend to eat at the excellent restaurant on site. There is a swimming pool but it's proximity next to the road makes it rather uninviting. The bathroom was uber cool but the lack of blinds meant light flooded into the bedroom which made it difficult to sleep well.

When u looking for a strategic location, inf front hotel u can find a non halal resto, and night food street market besides. Only 500 meters to supermarket GAMA, penang squares n komtar. But the room is quite small..

Clean budget hotel, fast checking helpful staff, clean basic budget. Many restaurant and convenience store around. Close to everywhere to PAH or Inland Hospital. Mostly Asian stay here. Stay at room 301 you can hear the traffic outside. House keeping forgot to clean the room but FO staff able to replace towels and water. The false alarm make noise 2 night in the row, Internet is fair.

We stayed for two nights in the deluxe triple room. The room was clean, Wifi connection was good. No windows in the bedroom. A window is located in the bath room. Hot water shower was available in the bathroom. The staff are friendly and polite. 24 hours mini market is just beside the Hotel. Easy to find meals/food around the hotel. Close to New Lane Hawker (chinese food), close to hospital, close to Nasi Kandar, Komtar, Masjid Jamee Simpang Enam and GAMA super market. The location is strategic and easy to find taxi, bus or Grab. Recommended hotel.
