                Hotel was well located for exploring Georgetown.

                Good Location. Value for money

                Rooms are a little run down. Gym and pool are small and ill-equipped

              • Couple
                7.4

                The service is not bad. So far so good and I able to get non smoking room as many people complaint about they cannot get a non smoking room. The breakfast at hotel is quite nice.

                Should provide lift to hotel,should not limited to level 2 and level 5 only.

                Great location, recently refurbished spacious rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Spacious room, comfortable firm bed. Centrally located.

                Hand towels to be provided.

                7.4

                Location was central to all places of interest and also good places to eat such as India Town. Buffet breakfast had good choices for everyone. Staff were also friendly and helpful.

                The quality of cleaning could be better in the bedrooms. All they did was make the bed and change the towels. There were ants all over the bedside and desk which they didn't clean. Also they didn't vacuuming the carpet everyday as I found hairs on the carpet. They need to train their housekeeping staff better or make quality control tighter.

                We enjoyed the proximity to everything in Georgetown. The professional staff, check in was fast and extremely polite. Room although a little small very comfortable. Breakfast was adequate although a little more Western fare mwould have been nice. We plan to re-book the Bayview for another visit in the future. Excellent pricing for the standard set.

                No complaints at all

                hotel gave rooms with wall from window view, i thought it should be Bayview (

              • Couple
                10.0

                Very close to the old town and ferry pier. In within 2min walking distance to the Red garden where you can find live music and local food. Very large jacuzzi with hot water which we used for 2 hours continuously. Very nice views from the revolving roof top restaurant. We went to the National Park to the turttle beach wich has very interesting white-gold sand.The walk through the rain forest for 1hour each way to the beach was a memorable trip to remember which you should do in Penang. There is also the largest temple in asia on a top of a hill which you shouldn't miss if you reach Penang (kek lok si temple) . We had a good time in Georgetown, there is a street with clubs and pubs just behind the hotel, marked as 25 on the guide map you can get from the hotel.

                I am not sure if the swimming pool area gets any sun and the swimming pool had the water too cold so I couldn't use it.

              • Couple
                10.0

                Good value for a great location near Upper Penang Road and across from the e&o hotel. Breakfast buffet was very good with top selection for all. Room was spacious and comfortable. Free daily newspaper. In house tailoring services (Maya tailor) are pretty good, I had 2 suits and 6 shirts made in 24 hours, although they have another shop in Batu Ferringhi with much more materials. Reception staff very helpful and efficient.

                No complaints, a very good hotel for the price. I would recommend to anyone

                It's comfort to stay inside there. but the location of the hotel is just not that good & conveniance.
