The hotel is dirt cheap so what does these people on here expect? The rooms are clean. The staff are friendly but not very service minded. But it's the same all over Malaysia. No one from taxi drivers to hotel staff to restaurant staff seem to be very service minded. The hotels location is very good with a taxi stand...

The hotel is family friendly, the room was clean and was big enough to fit the entire family members. It provided buffet breakfast for the guests (though the choices is limited). It located in the Georgetown city center. So it is convenient for those who drive, where you can reach gurney or komtar in just 15 minutes driving distance.

My family of 4 adults booked this Hotel due to its excellent location and a nearby hotel did not have family rooms. I've read some negative reviews and had some reservations but due to my husband's limited mobility (he's partially disabled) we opted for convenience as many of the food and heritage locations are nearby. All the bad reviews came...

The hotel is shows it's age, so lots of stuff is kinda breaking. For a similar price one might be able to get better accomodation elsewhere on the same street. Centrally located, so that's a plus. Beds are as hard as any that I've ever slept on.

Room is clean with the city view. You could enter and exit the hotel like a wind, no staffs would mind you. It's just along Penang road. infront is the town's best country bar and the Sup Hameed. Highly recommend for its location.

Stayed for 1 night in executive suite and the room is spacious can easily fit more than 5 pax. The hotel design is old school. More like late 80's and early 90's design. The price is reasonable and the breakfast is just alright. Located along the famous Penang Road, you can easily walk to nearby attractions such as Chowrasta, Little...

Stayed 1 night with my family in a double queen bedroom. The hotel must have seen more glamorous days 20-30 years ago. It feels as if we are back to the 1990's. Let's start with the location and check in first. Due to its old design, you will need to park your car first before you take lift and WALK...

The Hotel Continental in my well traveled mind a three star hotel centrally located in historic George Town. The hotel is a bit worn down although the rooms are clean due to an attentive cleaning staff. I was attending a conference and a private breakfast was provided. After looking at the breakfast I chose to eat at an outside cafe....

I last stayed here years ago, just after I had graduated from USM Penang. I remember the hotel as comfortable though not luxurious. Well, it seems to be well maintained! I had a view of the sea though the window was a bit small. Breakfast was ... well, simple! Still, I had a comfortable stay here.
