We only stayed 1 night at the Sentral Hotel, but would have stayed longer if it hadn't been booked out when we tried to extend. This relatively new hotel is located right in the hub of downtown Georgetown in easy walking distance to restaurants and tourist attractions. Turn left out of the hotel and on corner is a great cafe...

Me and my brothers stayed for one night this week. We encountered the very first unpleasant treatment from the receptionist. There were around 5-6 people at the reception but none of them treated us (not even a hello or a smile!!). I waited patiently at the reception for more than 5 minutes before this one guy asked for my reservation....

It was impressive during my stay in Georgetown. The staff really helpful. The location is walking distance to find the local food and not far from Komtas bus station. The only our choice to the the taxi instead of ferry on from georgetown to Butterworth is seem costly.

We stayed here for 6 nights. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but for what you pay, it represents very good value for money. The staff try pretty hard to help, the rooms are clean and it's in a very good location.

As this hotel was rated 3.5 stars, I did not set my expectations high. My room for 3 people was clean and spacious, with ample space for walking and storing luggage. Towels and toiletries were provided and the receptionist was friendly and acceded to our request for more of those items when they ran out. Room service was done properly...

The staffs and housekeepers are having difficulties in understanding English, a lot of miscommunication happened then. Housekeeper rejected our request of adding an extra mattress on top of the extra bed that we requested, saying that they have not enough mattress. This is extremely ridiculous. Towels are dirty, we could even found hairs on it, disgusting! Aircond is noisy and...
