I had a room on one of the upper floors and had a fantastic view. Then I realized all rooms are sea facing and have fantastic views. All rooms have a balcony where you can just relax and enjoy your drink and watch as ships and boats sail past. The staff in were very helpful and attentive always. Breakfast was... More

First, it's a privately owned and managed by individual owners maybe that is the reason for the mixed teviews. And you don't get checked in and payment is not at counter but to owner. The room we stayed 1402 was dirty with old furniture and cheap bedding and toiletries. The management staff who checked me in Miriam and Jessie was... More

We are located at level 21, so nice the view. Our room is 2111. can see the beach from balcony, also can see "Masjid Terapung Penang". The air-cond so cold. so off night, we have to off the air-cond. you can also open the door, welcoming out air coming in..so cold also no need on the air-cond.

Stayed here for four nights with a Freind a was thoroughly impressed with the location. The hotel sits on the beach pretty near to all the main attractions and while it could do with updating here and there it is good value for money. If I were to return to Penang I would stay here again.

This property, while adequate to our needs, felt due for a refurbishing. Service was not equal to expectations, with copious staff frequently present but disengaged (or disinterested). As a case in point, on four successive mornings, I unsuccessfully attempted to coach two kitchen staff members in the preparation of an "over-easy" egg (of which they had apparently never heard before...

I stayed here with my family 10 years ago and returned again 10 years later. The furniture and the decorations remained the same just like 10 years ago. Everything was alright except for the air conditioner which is going to fall apart and the bathing water is slightly yellow.

Stayed 2 nights at the Rainbow Paradise, located about 15-25 minutes drive from Georgetown depending on traffic. We were accommodated on high floor (21st) as requested and allocated at the end of the block which gave us fantastic sea view, where we had pleasure viewing sunset in the evening. Room was big with a kitchenette and wash basin, but no... More

I stayed in this hotel on 3/4/2015 - 5/4/2015 with my family of 7. When I first came to this hotel back in 2011, I really love this hotel. What I love about this hotel then was their service. I felt really welcome. Service - We arrived in the morning at about 10am. Though the bell boy did help out... More
