I have booked this 8 months earlier via booking. com and got the surprise 4 days before going there to have my reservation cancelled by the property for no reason. There is also a huge deposit if you read carefully the policies. Just book something else !

I booked this room through booking.com, and I clearly should have dug beyond the booking.com reviews. This man is operating some kind of scam whereby bookings are canceled after you pay him cash. I presume he doesn't want to pay booking.com a fair cut, but who knows the depth of his dishonesty. The rooms are advertised as part of a condo, however one assumes a few things when booking a condo. Things like a kitchen, sometimes a laundry. You are not afforded any such things in this place. There is laundry left hanging everywhere, mainly bedsheets and the like. Add to this the fact that you're nowhere near anything.

The whole set up here is dodgy. Simon will want you to cancel your booking through booking.com. The signs about the place advertising no homestays and the general attitude towards people when using facilities suggests that things are not quite right. If you don't mind handing over your details to someone who is not honest and is happy for you to be left feeling uncomfortable and unwelcome in your stay, then maybe this is the place for you. If you want to stay someone that is not near anything at all, then again stay here. Check the reviews on booking.com as well. No reviews from westerners as all bookings get cancelled, so how do you how any idea what people think. Plenty of places to stay in Penang far better then what is on offer here.

Wij hebben deze accomodatie via Booking.com geboekt en daar leek het wel alsof je het hele appartement boekte. Uiteraard is dat te mooi om waar te zijn voor dat geld. De ervaring en gastheer: We waren door de vele reviewq al voorbereid dat het wel eens vreemd zou kunnen uitdraaien. Simon heeft ons in de garage opgepikt met zijn auto en naar de bovenste parking gereden. In de auto kregen we uitleg dat er eens een slechte ervaring is geweest met voormalige huurder waardoor mensen uit de blok tegen homestay zijn. Er hangen ook posters op waar duidelijk opstaat dat het niet mag, maar Simong zegt dat we die gewoon mogen negeren.. Toegekomen in het appartement laat hij ons het appartement en onze kamer zien. En dan vraagt hij (zoals we al lazen in reviews) om cash te betalen en de booking via booking te deleten. We hebben hem uitgelegd dat we eerst bewijs van betaling wouden vooraleer te deleten. Dat bewijsje ontvingen we binnen de 20 minuten dus hebben we onze boeking geannuleerd. Locatie: Het is een 20 minuutjes in taxi van het centrum. Met Grab betaal je gemiddeld MR10 om er te geraken. De kamer: Een gedeeld appartement met prachtig uitzicht over Penang. Onze kamer was heel netjes, super comfortabel bed en heel aangename douche. We hadden gehoopt op een kamer met uitzicht maar die kost blijkbaar meer. Grootste voordeel vonden wij gebruik van reusachtig zwembad en gym. De sauna en stoombad zijn helaas kapot

' Hi! I booked a room in this appartement with booking.com for 4 nights. We want to this place with taxi because it's really far from everything. After to meet the manager Simon and visited the appartement, he asked us to pay in cash. It was ok for us so we gave the money and the deposit in cash. Before to leave, the manager asked us to cancel reservation on booking.com because he prefer to do like this (maybe he doesnt declare this to the administration). We refused and explained that it's a security for us because we didn't have any receipt. He answered us that if we don't cancel, we can't stay here. He wants to process like this without booking.com. He gave back the money and left us alone in front of the building without taxi and phone. The owner is a cheater and really not serious!!!! Don't go there, don't give him your money!!!
