Great hotel for the value

I stayed at the Bayview for 3 nights. It's an ideal location to explore Penang and especially Georgetown. I booked the hotel on sale, for about $50usd/night so was a little concerned what the quality would be like - but no need to worry! Room was clean, large, and comfortable. Cleaning staff wasn't overly thorough, but the room was clean. It's not a new hotel, but everything is clean and my stay was great. Great value! There's also a tour company located on the ground floor that is very helpful - they can help you book tours, but I also found them very helpful just to get an idea of what sights to see and how to get around the island.

If you want to do the sightseeing not in Georgetown - i.e. Penang Hill, Kek Lok Si, etc - it's mostly reachable by bus that leave from the Komtar station which is about a 15 min walk from the hotel.

Go to the Red Garden Night Market. It's just around the corner. Dozens of interesting local food stands and people watching... can graze for hours and be entertained for just a handful of ringitts.

Dirty and unclean hotel

Our experience was horrible. When we arrived the hotel rooms smelled like urine and the carpet and bedding was stained. We had booked for 3 nights and we tried in vain [...] to cancel the final two nights of our stay. [...]

Stay at the G Hotel. It's modern and very nice. We stayed there even though we still had to pay for our Bayview rooms for the 3 nights. The G is excellent for the price.
