Great location and good hotel service

Great location to walk to popular eateries and street, e.g. joo hooi cafe, teochew cendol and hameediyah restaurant, toh soon cafe along Campbell food street. Just outside the hotel there is the best mutton soup according to our Grab driver. Hotel staff are very friendly and gave us recommendation on places to visit. Breakfast selection could have been improved but I do understand most tourist travel to Penang for their local delicacies not hotel food. Hotel is well decorated, very cosy.
