I could not say that we enjoyed the stay that much. The outside dining areas constantly smelt like sewage! It is surrounded left and right by small drains (one of which clearly had high output from our hotel itself). I have walked around Lebuh Muntri and it is only the hotel area that stinks so bad, which is really concerning. Not appetizing at all for breakfast and dinner/drinks and absolutely regret selecting the breakfast-included option. It left a literal bitter taste in the mouth. Right beside our room was a very large aircon compressor that was not for our own room, we could hear it all the time even though we did not use AC ourselves. Service was nothing special, not particularly warm or friendly. Just the bare minimum really. Pleasant waiters but they seem rather inexperienced. The building's looks and location is the only redeeming factor as it is conveniently located and surrounded by beautiful heritage shophouses. The rooms were clean, though sheets and towels were old. All in all, not worth the RM400/night we paid. I hope the hotel will look into their wastewater smell issues as it's rather serious and off-putting.

Is heritage style property has the most welcoming staff, very well presented accommodation and a great location in Georgetown. In the cafe, food was delicious and the service excellent. My one regret was with glitches in Wi-Fi reception in my room. I was assured that improvements are scheduled to improve Wi-Fi reception as only some rooms are affected
