Nice view

Great view indeed with easy access to nearby places. Disappointed that rooftop view not enjoyed for non dinners to enjoy the scene day and night. Otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Penang.

Constant traffic noise, building sites

Traffic noise through windows resorted to jamming with newspaper. Very old & tired pool patio area, building sites opposite (24x7), better hotels elsewhere.

Awesome trip with friends

Stayed for 3 nights with friends. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Had a problem checking in due to my own forgetfulness, but staff helped to get it sorted swiftly. Room was clean and very spacious. A very comfortable stay, recommended!

Cityhotel im Herzen von George Town. Zimmer sind O. K. Frühstück asiatische Küche. Toller Pool und Yakuzi. Cab Free Bus Haltestelle ( Nr.7) ca. 250 Meter. Sehr stark durch Reisebusse frequentiert. Also immer Gewusel in der Lobby. Alles in allem gut. Lassen Sie sich ein Zimmer mit Blick auf die Malakka-Strasse geben. Toller Ausblick.

Gute Lage zur Altstadt

Cons: Bathroom
Gute, ruhige Lage zur Altstadt, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten fußläufig erreichbar – geräumiges Zimmer (Deluxe) mit großer, bodentiefer Fensterfront und schönem Blick aufs Meer – Bad etwas älter und erneuerungsbedürftig – Steckdosen englischer Art, Adapter gegen Pfand an der Rezeption – alles gepflegt und sauber – sehr freundliches Personal – sehr gutes, abwechslungsreiches Frühstücksbuffet mit verschiedenen asiatischen Speisen (malaysisch, indisch, chinesisch, englisch) und leckerem Kleingebäck – Internet oft langsam – super Aussicht und ansprechendes Buffet im rotierenden Dach-Restaurant – Insgesamt: gerne wieder!

L'hôtel est bien situé pour découvrir Georgetown à pied (pas facile de traverser la route à pied, pas de passage piéton à proximité...). Piscine et jacuzzi agréable. Chambre très propre. Wifi gratuit.
