              The bed & sheets are the most comfortable thing ever. The room is small but we were there for one night's stay so it's ok. The floor in the toilet and room was kinda oily when it was wet. Maybe they use some kind of detergent to sanitize it but did not wipe it down with water. It's located above a restaurant where we can hear at night. If you only need a good night's sleep then this hotel is perfect! I will return for the location, comfortable bed, and overall cleanliness.

              so glad that the staff is very helpful with the late check in around 5am. the room is smaller than i thought and i requested for twin beds but we got a queen bed, anyway there is no problem with that and we’re just fine with it. the bathroom is a bit smelly, maybe because the room space is just small and the towel seems not really clean as we can see stains from the towel. overall, we’re satisfied with the facilities provided and the great customer service. thank you!

              Enjoyed my short stay. Room was compact but well equipped - cool bed and awesome shower. Just a bit close to the restaurant but otherwise no issue.

              The hotel in centre point , which is easy to walk to all the main attractions area. Armerian street, little india, everything in walking distance..but bathroom hygiene was abit poor . Overall it’s good and satisfying for the money I paid

              This place really convenient with so many places cz it's at the center of Georgetown. But it's quite hard to find parking and room quite compact but it's worth with the price.

              early morning call”

              It is right next to a mosque which has very early morning prayers (very loud microphone) that will very likely wake you up. Perfect if you are a morning (the catch the sunrise/dawn) person. The staff did advise before check-in though. Quite surprised that no one else mentioned this in their reviews. There are some freelancers along the street at night. So may be something to avoid for couples/family.
