Positive Reviews

Unique historic property

The hotel sits in a converted Chinese home from the late 1880s and the decor and atmosphere match this era. Guests say that the hotel's decor provides a truly unique experience that they'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

Great location

Guests love the hotel's location, as it is in the heart of Chinatown and is surrounded by different types of restaurants. The area is also within walking distance of many of George Town's top historic attractions, which visitors find convenient.

Friendly staff

Visitors say that the hotel's staff is accommodating and friendly. This makes it easy for guests to make requests when staying at the hotel because they know that the staff will be responsive.

Negative Reviews

Poor breakfast

The breakfast that is served each morning at the hotel doesn't provide much variety, according to guests, and it doesn't meet the standards met by the rest of the hotel. Visitors expect more for breakfast given the luxury nature of this property.

Noisy area

Guests report that the soundproofing at the hotel is poor and that noise makes its way into the rooms from the restaurant and the street. This makes it hard for visitors to sleep, especially when there is an event going on at the restaurant.

No parking

Visitors are disappointed that the hotel doesn't provide parking and, therefore, they must find their own space on the street. The lack of parking makes it difficult for guests who drive to the hotel.
