Hotel Location

From the Train Station

By following the signboards, it will lead you to the ferry terminal which is adjacent to the train station (5 min walk). The ferry fare is 60 sen (subject to change). The journey to Georgetown terminal takes about 20 minutes. From the terminal, a 3 minute walk takes you to the taxi/bus stand. The taxi fare should be around RM6-8 and the journey through the streets of Georgetown should take only 10 minutes. You can also try the trishaws and the fare should not be more than RM8. (Please enquire the fare before boarding a taxi or trishaw).

If you are driving, turn left as you come out from the ferry terminal. You are now in Jalan Pengkalan Weld. Make a right at the first right turning and you will be in Chulia Street. By driving along this street, it will lead to the end where it meets Penang Road and Argyll Road. You will see Veenai Odeon cinema right in front of you. There is a road divider ahead which blocks your passage to Argyll Road. Turn left into Penang road and take the first right into Dato' Koyah road and another right into Clarke Street. You will see the MAA Building as you make a left into Argyll road. We are just 3 doors from the MAA building. You will notice a Caltex petrol station on your left before reaching the hotel.

From the Langkawi/Medan Ferry Terminal

As you come out of the terminal, there are lots of taxis and trishaws available. You can board either but remember to enquire the fare before boarding, which should not be more than RM8 for either. The terminal is just beside the Fort Cornwallis (an old British fort) which is within the Esplanade grounds. The short route takes you through a scenic part of Georgetown with some old majestic buildings along the way and the ride by taxi should be less than 10 minutes.

From Penang Bridge by car

As you cross one of Asia's longest bridge, you will be able to see Jerejak Island (a former penal colony converted to resort) on your left. As you approach the island, follow the signboard which indicates the direction to Georgetown.

You will now be driving along the coastal road. Here, along this road you have a choice of using the newly opened Jelutong Expressway or the older route via Jalan Mesjid Negeri (Greenlane). We suggest using the latter (Mesjid Negeri) as the Jelutong Expressway is rather complicated.

Driving along the coastal road, keep a look out for the signboard indicating Air Itam/Batu Ferringhi/Tg Bungah which turns left, instead of the one marked 'Georgetown' which goes straight.

By using this road, which takes you through an underpass, you only need make another right turn which takes you straight to Komtar, the city's premier landmark and also the city center. The journey from the coastal road to Komtar is about 20 minutes.

Travelling along Jalan Mesjid Negeri (Greenlane), watch out for the signboard which indicates 'Pusat Bandar' (City Center). You will pass through 5 traffic lights before turning right at the Mesjid Negeri flyover (the state Mosque is on your left as you make the turn).

You are now in Jalan Air Itam/Dato Keramat. Travelling along this road, traffic seems to get slower as you inch closer to the city center till finally you reach Komtar. Continue your journey passing by Komtar and turn left at the pedestrian bridge. You are now in Burmah Road.

The first right turn in Burmah road takes you to Transfer Road. Drive on till you see a Caltex petrol station and just after Caltex, turn left into Argyll Road. We are just before MAA Building.
