Surrounding here, you can find many historical building and attraction of course since now Ryokan will be one of the Trendy Back Packer Hostel which provide you a comfort staying experience or it can be one of the attraction as well, why I said so it is because it built in a Historical Shop Lot which is more than 100 years old and you can find the wooden door and windows also the corridor which still maintaining the 18 century Design. 
Here is the Check-In counter where you can get your towel, pillow, blanket or event you can rent your motorbike for city tour. The room charge for per bed is RM36 and it provide you with a Pillow, a Double Tacker Bed and a Locker in your room, of course the air conditioner also provided. As mentioned all those will only cost you a small fees...

All your shoes need to be park at the shoe rack which is just located near the staircase as you will need to smell your smelly shoes in your room..!
This are the Japanese wooden shoes which walk you to the bathroom and also the toilet which located at the end of the corridor on the 2 second floor... there is 3 bathroom and 3 toilet, also you can brush your teeth at the basin prepared by them.
Well, on you walk out from you room, you will find this relaxing area just right at the corridor and with very comfortable IKEA furniture.
