            Nice Heritage Hotel”

            Rooms well appointed, clean and comfortable. Staff were courteous, helpful and professional. Very happening place located in the middle of Georgetown. There are even pubs available just across the street, a big food court nearby and it is very happening in the night time, but overall still get to slept soundly. There are also nearby food stalls and many shops available within walking distance. Both the exterior and interior deco is splendid. It is a heritage building with the colonial style. This place is a brilliance in terms of service, cleanliness and comfortable. Love the bathtub at the balcony. Alot of places in this hotel which i could take splendid pictures. Will be coming back to this hotel again.

            Amazing & Perfect Stay”

            Perfect stay from start to finish. The staff at reception was genuinely friendly and helpful. The room was modern and spacious for us. Room, bedding bathroom clean and comfortable, moreover the bathtub at the balcony simply superb. Big bathroom with all quanlity necessities. Centrally located close to major city and shopping malls, it was an ideal base for our stay. Great value, highly recommend and will definitely stay again when visiting the area.

            Big room”

            Value for money.the room design is superb.my room bath tub is at the balcony and the balcony space is so big. It is open parking. But you can park your car beside the hotel. One day is for RM 30. The hotel location is just in front of the southern hotel and near marcelent hotel. Easy to find food and grab charges only cost RM 2. But depends from which area you want to order. The hotel disadvantages are no lift and iron provided. Overall we're satisfied and enjoy our night there.

            The sole advantage - location”

            Nice location. The hotel is new, can see it, can smell it too, that the hotel is new. Very niceky designed indeed. But that's about it, the up side. The downside: Being a new hotel, maybe bcoz it was recently renovated, found to be dusty. Well, not to say that it's not clean, it is dusty, the floor is dusty, the toilet is dusty and the balcony that hold the bathtub is dusty, and most of all, even the bathtube itself, the main highlight of the room I booked, was dusty, much to my dismay... and the bathtub didn't have hot water... Overall, the location is good, design is nice. Hope that the hotel can properly clean the room even though it's new. Mopping the floor will help. Otherwise, the stay was still pleasant, ignoring the fact that i paid extra for that bathtub that i couldnt use bcoz it was dusty and i had to wash it first. The location is great. Carpark available for rm8 per night.

            pros: so many ig worthy areas, jacuzzi large enough for 5 to 6 people, cushy and dreamy bed & pillows. new and clean room. efficient staff. cons: the tiles used in toilet and around rooftop jacuzzi are soooooooo slippery (but sooooooo pretty) my kid fell twice, lucky he was not running, if running sure can be worse. noise from the nearby roads/traffic not too bad.

            We booked the Deluxe Family room it was okay. Rooms looks clean when we arrived and wifi works fine. However since we are a group of friends we are kinda conscious on the transparent bathroom that only uses curtains. Few things we noticed: the room was not properly cleaned on our second day, and some towels where not replaced. They also do not have hand soap in the sink and only alternative is the body wash in the shower. Other than that staff had been really helpful and nice.

            well we purposely booked the room with the bathtub but the stopper wasn't working so the water was just constantly draining away. Room was large and clean, everything was great... but please get a plumber to fix it.
