눉Concierge not too familiar with nearby places to go and to eat although they were friendly and helpful.
눇Like the bath room, though small but functional, and well lit. Located near bus terminal (3 min walk) thus made travelling around by public bus very convenient. One can even take Rapid Penang route 401E from airport to hotel - big saving, only RM2.7 per pax vs RM43 per taxi trip.

눉Free wifi in rooms only for two devices at a time, though they offered another login when 'complained about it'. Airconditioning is difficult to set, and the minimal fan speed is a little too strong, which made the room cooler at night. The air feels cool even when the fan option was selected ( I wonder where the cool air comes from). The not so easy to navigate TV remote and menu system plus the low resolution blocky unsharp pictures on the Sharp brand TV (what an oxymoron). Hard to see light control panel making it difficult to turn on lights easily once most of the lights have been turned off.
눇Central location, close to main bus terminus, food outlets, markets and shopping centre. Newly built hotel with most of the hotel looking clean, good condition and in good working order. A power outlet which accepts plugs from most countries, though I would bring my own power board. Helpful friendly staff, except for one bellhop who was sluggish to respond when we first arrived. Brightly lit bathroom, adequate lighting (can be better) for main bedroom, firm beds and choice of pillows available by request (though I did not try them), nice big thick clean towels. Good toiletries, bedroom slippers, shoe polish sponge, and sewing kit. Five mod high speed guest lifts means generally minimal waiting and travelling. Good soundproofing between rooms. Good abundant storage drawers, iron and ironing boards, in room safe, spacious bar fridge (deliberately left unstocked) which allows us to keep perishable foods. Creative housekeeper who left 'towel' animals on our bed and a welcome note. Good clean housekeeping. Decent free bottled water unlike some hotels which provide deionized (reversed osmosis) water. We did not try the cafe or restaurants or gym but have been told they are good.
