5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Great location and good hotel service

Great location to walk to popular eateries and street, e.g. joo hooi cafe, teochew cendol and hameediyah restaurant, toh soon cafe along Campbell food street. Just outside the hotel there is the best mutton soup according to our Grab driver. Hotel staff are very friendly and gave us recommendation on places to visit. Breakfast selection could have been improved but I do understand most tourist travel to Penang for their local delicacies not hotel food. Hotel is well decorated, very cosy.

Lovely Colonial atmosphere, wish we had more time there to really enjoy it. But there is always next time and, if we are travelling to Penang, it will be our hotel of choice.

such a beautiful setting. Service was amazing. My room was at the end near the kitchen dining area and so was a little noisy at times, especially since I was needing to retire early a few of the nights. Not sure how that can even be changed, so maintain my high rating!
