                    Getting there.

                    The hotel is set atop the island, 150m above sea level, away from crowded touristic spots. Penang airport is within a seven-minute ride away; an industrial zone and different business facilities are close by making the hotel a perfect base to stay during the business trip. The couples searching for a romantic getaway will appreciate the beauty and peacefulness of the area the hotel is placed in.

                    Getting around.

                    The Internationa, Penang Airport is a seven-minute ride from the hotel (a free shuttle service is offered for the guests). An on-site parking costs MYR 5 a day.

                      Close to the airport, and not far from Queensbay Shopping mall by cab. Nice little mini man-made rainforrest with (short) paved trails & a bench to relax on.

                      Staff under training happens exerywhere, and that can't be helped. The limo service to the airport is around 65RM, and the local taxi advertises 18RM. The limo however, might take you back for free if you forget something though, and they drive much faster if you ask. My guy also waited, to make sure that I didn't miss my flight. Technically, he is a driver for a contract company, but he was what made my trip when things didn't work out with a delayed flight. I am very thankful to the man in the bright yellow hawaian shirt. P.S. - Some corporate rates around 130RM!!!

                      Has a nice pool. The room was spacious but the bathroom looked old. Good tv channels. Well priced room service. Powerful water in shower. Very cheap price.

                      Very far from the centre of town and you could pay quit abit on taxi's. Hotel looks old and the bathroom was of poor quality.

                      It was difficult to travel out of the hotel due to the location but it was great that the hotel provided transport at certain times to various locations including the sending of the runners to the start point for the recent marathon.

                      I can't get to go down to the city as i like as the taxi service was superb expensive..
