"Security - Worried about safety? Theres a guard at the street entrance, a guard in the lobby, a carded door lock to the elevators, a key to the front gate of the patio then a key to front door. Security cameras all around as well.
Spotless, that pretty much describes the whole place. Very clean, I didnt expect to find such a nice place in Penang. Also, its more spacious than it appears in the pictures. Kitchen has most everything you would need. Pots and pans, silverware, plates, etc. There were plenty of bath/hand towels as well.
My only issue with this place is the bathroom and shower. There is nothing to prevent water from splashing all over the bathroom while you shower, so you learn to use lower pressure. Also, the tile bathroom gets VERY slippery when wet. I bought a few cheap $2 bathroom mats tho, and that was no longer a problem.
In the end, the place far exceeded the value of what I paid and I was very happy with it. Things like the bathroom were just a minor nuisance. If you dont need the services a hotel provides, I definitely recommend this place. In fact, I felt safer here than my last trip when I stayed at Traders hotel (no employees coming in and out of your condo to clean every day)
One last thing, I was met by the owner upon arrival at the condo. Very nice and friendly, was very good at answering all my questions via email before arriving as well." Review by Josh from US
