Just had a stay at this hotel on Gurney Drive and had to drop a review. First things first, the location is a total win. It's smack dab in the middle of all the cool touristy stuff, which was awesome because I could just walk to most places. The room rates, especially during peak season, were surprisingly affordable. I was bracing for a wallet hit, but it turned out to be a pretty sweet deal. The room I stayed in was clean. Housekeeping did a great job, so kudos to them. But if you're into modern, chic designs, this might not be your cup of tea. The room had an old-school vibe which was okay for me, but I guess it depends on your taste. Another thing I loved was the free parking. If you've ever tried to find parking around Gurney Drive, you know it's like a treasure hunt. So, having a spot at the hotel was a huge relief. But here's a heads-up: getting around the hotel can be a bit tricky. They've got this system with separate lifts, and the walkway connecting parts of the hotel felt cramped and not exactly smooth sailing. Not a deal-breaker, but something to keep in mind, especially if you've got lots of luggage. Overall, I'd say it's a pretty good place to stay. It balances out with the location and rates, despite a few quirks. Would recommend it if you're planning a trip around Gurney Drive and want a place that's easy on the pocket but still decent.

Check in was a breeze, room is spotlessly clean, breakfast has enough choices and the foods were fresh. One of the better breakfasts for rooms under RM500. Staff was friendly, and helpful without being too intrusive. Parking was good as well and shaded making loading and unloading bags easy and location is great for visiting Georgetown and Gurney area. Pool was great and clean, but we do wish some pool tables or ping-pong tables for sport. Tennis was available as well. Concierge was helpful as well, as we needed towels and bottles of water at 1am and they delivered.
