Positive Reviews

Contemporary Charm

Guests loved this charming and cosy boutique hotel. Visitors say the property has been well-renovated with a nice preservation of its historical part without the sacrifice of contemporary comforts. Guests complimented the beautiful and thought-out design and the vintage furnishings.

Inviting Dining Area

Guests enjoyed the hotel's common areas, especially the relaxing living lounge and the dining room, which even had a small kitchenette with a refrigerator. The shared spaces made the hotel feel like a home.

Walk from the Waterfront

Travellers found it easy to explore the historic parts of George Town from here and found it convenient to be so close to the ferry terminal. People say the hotel is set in a nice neighbourhood with plenty of shops and cafes.

Negative Reviews

Noise Complaints

The hotel overall doesn't seem to have good soundproofing, as guests complained that they could hear their neighbours and corridor traffic too well. In addition, light sleepers were bothered by the rooms facing the street as there are always cars and motorcycles passing by at all times of the day.

Parking Problems

Guests were a bit disappointed that there was no parking available on-site. According to reviews, there is public parking near the hotel but the number of spots is always limited.

Walk Up an Appetite

For tired travellers, it seemed a bit of a hassle to walk to the neighbouring hotel for breakfast. According to guests, the sister hotel is a five-minute walk away.
