Positive Reviews

Good access to street food and shopping

This hotel is steps away from what are locally known as "hawker stalls" selling top-notch street food. According to guests, a stay at this property is not complete without trying some of the freshly cooked local delicacies on offer in the surrounding blocks. Moreover, there were several shopping malls close by.

Spacious and clean rooms

Guests were impressed by how large their rooms were. This was especially true considering the prices they paid, which were reportedly lower than expected given the generous size of the rooms. Cleanliness standards were also said to be good on the whole.

Guests would return

Many people travelling to Georgetown consider this hotel to be among the most appealing lodgings in the neighbourhood because they had such good stays during their first visits.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast is not worth the money

Reviewers often thought the hotel's breakfast buffet was too expensive considering what was on offer. There were also claims that the breakfast lacked sufficient variety to satisfy international guests.

The swimming pool is too small

The outdoor swimming pool at this property may have been inviting, but for fitness fans its small size rendered it virtually useless for swimming lengths as part of an exercise routine. Despite its tiny size, it still held some appeal for those looking to cool off during the heat of the day.

Inconsistent service from staff

Based on feedback given by guests, the hotel's management needs to work on ensuring a more reliable service from the front desk staff and housekeepers. Sometimes the front desk workers were eager to help and friendly, but in other cases they did not seem sufficiently outgoing or professional. There were also occasional reports of housekeeping oversights, such as dirty sheets and blankets.
