Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make our stay better. They recommended places to eat and see, the rooftop bar (and free ice cream and cookies) were great. The room was cosy, but the bathroom was well equipped with a relaxing shower. The hotel had a great buffet breakfast, and generally felt very safe.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: We got in at 10.30 am and was told a room will be available only much later as they were fully booked. I happened to take the same lift with the GM, Ms Alison. She was so kind to see if i could get a room as soon as possible and she did! We got checked into our room by 12.30pm. It was so kind of her to make that extra effort! We had a great stay!

9.7 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed staying in the heritage part of the hotel. It really did feel like going back in time. The suite was very comfortable with everything you'd expect from a hotel of this level. The staff in front of house were extremely helpful.
Cons: The pool in the heritage section was closed for our entire stay. However the pool at the victory wing was pleasant and not too far to walk. The gym in the heritage section has little in the way of cardio equipment but again, there is a full range in the gym in the other section.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The heritage and history of the hotel, the location and friendly and warm staff
Cons: more Options could be available in the room service menu. But disappointed that while making the booking on bookings.com it did not mention that the heritage wing was undergoing renovation.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The architecture of the building, the very spacious bedroom and bathroom, the view.
Cons: For a hotel of that standard ( and price), I would have expected a better service. The toiletries are basic( as an example, Shangrila in KL have l Occitane), we had to ask for a com and a shaving kit. They don’t do complementary cocktails anymore so instead they give soft drinks and fruit but again we had to ask for the fridge to be replenished. It feels like they cut down the privileges as much as they can in order to save money. The breakfast is adequate but not woaw( again Shangrila in KL has not only a better selection and of better quality). We could hear people slamming doors, dragging furniture. It is not well isolated probably as it is an old building. The choice of channels are quite limited. On the whole we had a nice stay and we are glad we went as there was a 40% off . I would never pay full price for that quality.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The room is spacious with a balcony! The pool and the poolside are awesome. The spa is also very good!
10.0 Excellent

Cons: When I called the "butler" phone line, I was requested to call another number to respond to my request. I expected the "butler" line to be able to deal with all requests.

Pros: nice bar and pool. new rooms.
Cons: Checkin was a pain in the a$$. Took 30 minutes- at first the said "we don't have your reservation." Annoying after flying for 15 hours. I showed my confirmation, and the receptionist was still puzzled. I had to call the travel agency I booked through online, who then called the hotel to see what the heck was going on. The front desk staff was polite but unhelpful. Eventually they said it was a "computer error" and manually made a new reservation for me. Sucked waiting 30 minutes in the lobby without a room waiting to checkin. Felt like a criminal in timeout. No apology,

There are many sofas to relax in communal space so I was able to enjoy after check out as well. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Beauty of a heritage building also means sound insulation is not the greatest. Love Lane is quite lively at night, the hotel is slightly further away from the bars but still depending on where your room is, I guess you more or less hear traffic and a bit of the nearby nightlife. Best tip is to pack some earplugs (I always do when I'm away)

Also, the stored our bags after checkout so that we could explore Penang Hill for the day, really helpful of them!!
Cons: Well, the AC wasn't working (they did move us quickly). Also, there was a small leak in the toilet. Other than that, everything was awesome.

Cons: breakfast was not that good, coffee was bad.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The pool was fine and the breakfast was good.
Cons: Our room wasn’t cleaned very good. The second day we even asked the housekeeping to clean it again because there were still stains at the table and at the mirrors. The ground wasn’t cleaned too. At breakfast, someone spilled coffee and nobody cleaned it up. After 20 minutes (during which the staff walked by a few times) we asked if someone could clean it because we didn’t want our daughter to step in it. It lasted 10 more minutes until somebody cleaned it up.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel in a colonial building with a great location in Georgetown. The sights of the historic centre are within walking distance, and there are a diverse range of coffee shops and restaurants nearby, including those in the atmospheric Little India. There is a nice pool and sun loungers with umbrellas to relax under. We were upgraded to a deluxe room which overlooked the pool area, was spacious and quiet. The bed was huge and very comfortable. We did not eat at the hotel, preferring the nearby restaurants so cannot comment on the restaurant. Highly enjoyable stay.

8.2 Excellent
Pros: I felt secure, and the people staying there were really friendly

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and the staff is really friendly! Free water refill and tja cafe downstairs is also really nice with great breakfast.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location was great, staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were good size and it suited me perfectly for the trip.
Cons: It would have been good to have a sheet for the bed to sleep under, on arrival it was a velour blanket which is not very suited to the climate. When asked I was given a fitted sheet to sleep under, it did the job but not ideal. Also the WiFi wasn't very good, very in and out of reception.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Bad room Sounds from pluming from bathroom Bad smell
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic wee hostel in Georgetown. Easy location to get to and from. Staff are really lovely and helpful. The muesli for breakfast is seriously tasty.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The cafe is lovely with good coffee and the staff are really helpful and nice. New sheets and towels were great, comfy beds (although wobbly if your bunk mate keeps moving)
Cons: Bathrooms for the female dorm are outside so very warm and lots of mosquitos, there isn't much room in the dorms for suitcases and packs so when the dorm is full it's very cramped. The hostel is split across both sides of the street and fresh hot/cold water is only available on one side so you have to keep going back and forth to fill your water bottles. The location is a bit more of a walk from the main attractions in Georgetown, but conveniently close to the mall if you need to get money out or grab supplies. I probably wouldn't stay here again as there are nicer hostels in more convenient locations.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Location is perfect, komtar can be seen from entrance, just look up! Near to almost all town attractions.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The place is quiet and peacefull, well decorated. The staff can help you with anything.
Cons: Hard to meet people since there’sbarely Anyone in the common room
6.8 Good
Pros: The room was comfortable enough.
Cons: The room was comfortable enough but when we booked it didn’t say that the bathroom was unattached so it was a not so pleasant surprise to find out that much later and plus we payed 100 bucks for that. It will be better if that was mentioned in the room description.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I love the staff attitude, the cleanliness, the environment, the location is so convenient too, just love the stay.
Cons: Everything was fine, but the pool with fishes in it kinda stinks, not very strong smell just a mild one, not suitable to sit there I suggest
7.0 Good
Pros: Good location. Fair price for what you get.
Cons: I stayed in the dorms, and the cozy and nice pictures of the building that you see in the adverts are only for the private rooms, the dorms are located in another building, which wasn’t as nice as the main one. The dorm is in the second floor and the bathroom is located downstairs, so it’s quite uncomfortable. The room wasn’t soundproof, so if there’s people in the coffee shop downstairs, you’ll hear them as if they were in the dorm.

7.0 Good
Pros: We had three nights in a king room with balcony overlooking a garden area arriving at 7pm after spending 4 nights in Kuala Lumpur. We liked the sustainability ethos and friendly staff - the gentleman who serviced our room was very accommodating.
Cons: Our room was on the 2nd floor. We were frequently disturbed by the wooden floors from room above us (sounded like gymnastics at times). While the staff were friendly, they had very poor knowledge about standard local attractions - we received incorrect advice on two consecutive days and when we asked about a recommendation for a seafood restaurant, the young lady simply Googled ‘seafood restaurants’.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Was okay but not what I was expecting. Facilities and staff less than expected, and location a few blocks further from main attractions. Room was an odd mix of very nice and very tacky furnishings and bathroom could use an update. I suspect the high reviews are falsified by the staff or owners.

Cons: The coffee machine was broken in the room.
7.0 Good
Pros: The room was beautiful! Very spatious, nicely decorated, nice art on the walls. The bubblebath on the patio was great. Two Floors, two bathrooms. A great place to relax in a busy city
Cons: The terrace next to the swimming pool smelled like sewer. Was unpleasant. The staff didn’t seem well informed and could often not really help with Information about tourist things or the facilities of the hotel. Also empty coffee cups next to the pool were not noticed. There were many interns. In a hotel like this I would expect better staff.
6.8 Good
Pros: we had a suite, hotel lots of character and good location
Cons: rooms were a bit dirty, daily clean was fairly perfuntionary, front office staff (not all) not particular friendly or helpful
5.8 Okay
Pros: Superb location, walking distance to everything. Garden facing rooms peaceful.
Cons: Breakfast very basic, the complimentary afternoon tea even more so. Staff were apathetic. Garden facing room is a must because of unbearable noise from the street facing rooms; I contemplated early check out after a sleepless night (even with ear plugs) but ended up paying for a room change because of the noise, staff seemed unconcerned by this. New room peaceful but bathroom flooded. House keeping quite slow (rooms still being cleaned at 5pm) Disappointing given the price point and the quality of hotels in the area, would not stay again.
7.5 Good
Pros: The double storey was huge! Good location.
Cons: None
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is excellent. We liked the room and its decor. The stain glass windows were nice. Bathroom was great as was the water mains pressure for a great shower. Breakfast was alright but not as good as local food given how awesome the local food is and its abundance.
Cons: Staff were kind but a little too brief with directions and tips. It wasnt a busy time.
4.5 Okay
Pros: Near from the town. But the town is not very attractive. The hill is much better. Free massage. Breakfast was good.
Cons: Payment was not confirmed although messages. No response before coming.

Pros: Well located, beds are comfortable , shower is good.
Cons: Rodent problem in the upper common area, the room number 1 is looking on the very noisy street of love lane, makint it hard to sleep at night.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Comfy beds, very clean, really nice interior style, super friendly staff.
Cons: Our room was very close to the main road so lots of street noise, remember earplugs. Sometimes a queue for the shower but wasn't really an issue. Only 4 showers, 2 toilets downstairs 1 upstairs

7.5 Good
Pros: Great location, great building and rooms. Comfortable beds, everything very clean. Nice AC. Double bed in 4 bed dorm, really nice for couples.
Cons: Breakfast really really small. Coffe was bad taste :D Staff was okay, not tooo friendly
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Great location if you're a nightlife kinda person. The whole Street is filled with bars plus live music (if you're lucky). Amazing service by the staff. The old timey interior and decor adds a wee bit of charm, a very retro/vintage looking hostel. Also many attractions/cafes were within walking distance so we've definitely saved on taxi fares. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit :D
Cons: The water supply in the bathroom could be better. If multiple people shower at the same time, the water pressure gets lower to the point it seemed like someone cut off the water supply.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Loved the helpful staff. All amenities are provided. Breakfast with toast and fruits are included. There's a TV in the common area with some old movies. Perfect for the rustic environment. Clean toilets and bathrooms.
Cons: Noise from everywhere. Squeaky floors. Could use a bit more sound proofing but ear plugs are provided. Some of the beds are squeaky as well. Common area could use a bit of air-conditioning. Room could use an extra wall fan for upper bunks?
5.5 Okay
Pros: Location, beds
Cons: Breakfast
7.5 Good
Pros: The hostel is in a very good location, on Love Lane. Room was comfortable.
Cons: My room was noisy as the old floorboards would rattle and bounce every time someone would walk by my room - which was often because it was right next to the top of the stairs. Showers are not convenient. They are located at the back of the hostel on the ground floor so, for me, I had to either get dressed in the middle of the heat in a steamy shower cubicle (which are quite roomy, to be fair) or wrap myself in towels before running past the communal area and then up the stairs to my room. Internet connection was all quite patchy.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location night life and exploring the city center. Gentle staff, cozy bed and nice furniture.
Cons: The walls were to thin and the wooden ground caused alot of noises while people walked over it. Thus our room was "shaking" and it felt someone was running next to us. Additionally, there was not alot of opportunities to sit which made it hard to find a place for the breakfast particularly. Not sufficient dishes for all guests.

Pros: Hotel staff members were nice and friendly, very accommodating.
Cons: The breakfast was bad.. Nasi lemak was tasteless and rice texture was dry unlike what nasi lemak is supposed to be like. Coffee was below standard too. This was disappointing as we were looking forward to a nice local dish breakfast.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The room was big, clean and comfortable. The receptionist was nice and helpful, she arranged a taxi for us when we left. Location was also good.
Cons: The hotel is right next to a mosque, which was a bit loud when the muezzin prayed. There could be more options for breakfast (we could choose between omelette or scrambled eggs).

Cons: The front desk attendant had to be there in order to open the door to the hotel. Good for safety but we did have to sit at the next door Pizza shop a few times waiting. Key card for front door entry could be good?
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Lovely accomodation on walking distance from everything you wouldn’t want to miss in Penang. Great host, kids loved the pool.
Cons: Breakfast is poor, you only get a minimum of choice. But you can see clearly that the restaurant/bistro is nog part of the hotel. They are not friendly and welcoming. Feels like they don’t want to serve you at all...we had 2 times breakfast elsewhere
6.3 Good
Pros: I liked the friendly, helpful service. I thought the room was clean, comfortable and reasonable value for the price. The TV had limited channels but the wifi was fine. The location is also fine for walking to the centre of the heritage area.
Cons: By no stretch of the imagination is this hotel 'boutique', and it's a shame that's the name of the hotel because it attracts and then disappoints anyone who knows what that word means in relation to hotels. It's a mid-range, modern hotel. There are fifty hotels in the area more boutique than this one. I didn't like the other minor deception, which is the pool. It's a paddling pool, fine for young children. In fact I'd recommend the place for families, not couples. I was hoping to have a swim, but no chance. There is therefore no quiet social area other than reception. I didn't like the noise. We were on a room at the back and had a really bad busker playing outside our window, and loud kids. Noise travels quite far from the paddling pool area. The call to prayer is fine and expected in this part of the world. They need to point out the parking permit system (if you are driving). It's really cheap and easy when you know how, but my car was left out for a whole day because I didn't know and it could have been towed. I didn't like the breakfast (which is in the restaurant next door owned by the same people). Coffee was not good and neither was the scrambled egg, toast, apple and salad(!). I didn't enjoy the pizza and salad when eating there in the evening either, but that's another story.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, spacious comfy rooms and nice pool which our daughter adored. Good breakfast, absolutely recommend!

6.8 Good
Pros: room was clean
Cons: We arrived hotel around 3pm but still didnt prepare our rooms. How come check-in took more than 40 min and not so many ppl there around 3pm and staff just said to me "wait cause room hasnt prepared yet" Also, after 40min, I approached to staff first to ask my room status and they didnt explain to me when we can have breakfast and time and even no basic explanation for the hotel facilities. Moreover, right after booking my room, ur staff was calling me and promised with me to arrange the room with better view but my room was at level 5 and view was blocked by some weird round shaped structure. Anyway, check-in was the worst experience for me.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice hotel - location , staff , speed , helpful information , breakfast , ! Wonderful downtown location with lots of happenings nearby ( hawker food , restaurants , bars , super markets , bus terminals ) Friendly staff from doorman , reception , club floor manager , restaurant serving staff ... all are very well trained in hospitality as we can feel the pride in their work . Speed is very important and it is not only the service or check-in / check/out , the elevators too ( nice , big and 4 of them ). Everyone in this hotel is trying to help you with anything you may need when you are staying here - lots of helpful information for tourist like us ! Breakfast - do not miss this as it turned out to be very balance with local , western and good quality !
Cons: Not sure why the night light blinks even we switched them off .
7.0 Good
Pros: The hotel is situated in a very central location, surrounded by malls, convenient stores, and restaurants. The room was spacious and modern, the bathroom was pretty functional, and the wifi worked fine. The bedding was comfortable enough, although we just couldn't find a comfortable pillow to suit our preferences). There was also a rather limited option on the TV. The gym is really well-equipped (we didn't see the pool). Lots of indoor parking space. The staff seemed friendly and eager to help. We were pleasantly touched to find a birthday cake waiting for us in our room on my birthday, that was a really nice touch. If the hotel can address the cleanliness issue, we will probably return again in the future.
Cons: Upon arrival, we were shown to a very dirty room, where there was a lot of dust everywhere (on the surfaces, tissue box, bedside tables, bathroom counter, etc). There was also hair in various places, including on the fridge counter, the bathroom counter, on the floor (both in the room and bathroom), even one stuck on the armchair! (It should be noted that the hotel did send someone to clean our room as soon as the issue was reported.) But the most disgusting thing of all was the grime just underneath the shower door, as bits of dirt would fall out every time the door is moved - gross! We had to try to spray it clean - MULTIPLE TIMES - and it still wouldn't all come off because what it needs is a good and thorough scrubbing! For a 4-5* hotel, this must have been the most disappointing level of cleanliness that we've ever experienced anywhere in the world! We hope that you'll be paying closer attention to hygiene side of things from now on.

Cons: 1.) TV display picture is shadowing and blurry. Quiet bothering for my long stay (10N) in the hotel. Were informed by service center, due to the weather. Why simply said due to the weather, which perfectly fine for Penang in Jul-Aug? Later-on the technician came, said something wrong with the TV, need to be fixed. He then arranged to move us into a new room. 2.) Complaints to housekeeping about my room that was not well-cleaned, esp. floor & carpet was dirty. Request to change the bed-sheet were also not addressed. Was informed that the cleaning staff they assigned that day was still newly-employed. Aren't you supposed to make sure that the staff was well-trained beforehand?
