Average hotel in a perfect location, close to nightlife and to 24h shops. The hotel itself could be very nice but really needs a lifting, as the rooms are outdated. That's pity coz it has a great potential otherwise. Rooms are clean and very spacious and the staff is very helpful, friendly and polite. But several points are negative: -...

Nothing great about this hotel which can match the standard of Bayview Langkawi. Location is good. Staffs can be more courteous and helpful. We were not given the room which is suitable for a family with a kid. We got a room with two single beds while we request for a room with a double bed. Not a big issue...

I expected more. The furniture was all looking a bit old, tired, chipped. Finishings were down market. It looked nicer, more premium in the pictures. To be fair, it was in a good location, near the truly excellent Red Garden hawkers market and of course Georgetown's historic centre. Next time I would shop around though for something more upscale, for...

Nice and clean hotel with amazing "threesixty" -bar at the roof. Drinks are good but little bit expensive. Base cost is high and they add 10% service on everything, but having one drink on the roof is ok. Buffet was 80MYR per person and really limited. I dont recommend it. Also they have weird policy not giving you complimentary water...

We staid two nights in Penang, the hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of the old town. Pros: rooms are fairly large they can even arrange a family room with two adjacent doubles, pool is quite large, rooms are well cleaned Cons: Hotel is worn out (bathrooms, aircon is difficult/impossible to adjust), breakfast has room for improvement

Really good location for visiting Georgetown. Changed rooms after one night as we had a family room with connecting door which was noisy. Comfy bed and pillows with very clean linen. Lots of hot water. Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Stayed here five days and still did not get to try everything. Staff helpful and pleasant. Pool was a bonus along...

I am here for a 5N 6D stay and today is my 3rd day. Upon check-in, the staff gave us a room with two single beds, & we requested to change room for double bed, which is only next door. I hope that hotel staff should have some sense of awareness when allocating rooms for patronage. Housekeeping staff are friendly...

Fabulous hotel in a great location. Very quick walk to all of the historic sites and then a great pool to relax in when you return. Staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a fun outdoor bar with views of the city and a yummy revolving restaurant with a nightly buffet. Free parking as well.

We recently stayed here for our wedding in Penang to be met with professional staff and friendly concierge. The check in process is a bit lengthy but gives time for your bags to be delivered to your rooms. Due to our circumstances the reception also upgraded our room which was helpful to an amazing view of this great island. The...
