Oh my! What great shots here. Totally classics. The hotel should pay for this free advertisement.. for a non Penangite, I probably end up at this hotel just by looking at your shots. Well done, Criz.

A wonderful hotel and very much a classic. I so much prefer hotels with character like this, rather than the anonymous modern blocks, no matter how luxurious.
