We stayed here on a recent trip to Penang. We had a very nice room, great view and the staff were friendly. It is however showing it's age. If you can get a good deal then it is definitley worth staying. Bus into Georgetown stops right outside.

Was there for a family holiday and are stuck to stay here as there is no more available hotel that caters for my whole family. The hotel have a rather nice view from the room seriously but the place really needed badly for a renovation! Almost everything in this hotel is old and badly maintained. I do think that even...

I like this hotel with the wonderful view from the balcony on my room at floor 25. Public transport is easily accessible to many areas such as the Night Market. As breakfast included in the package, the restaurant is nice with variety of choices and good service. Beach activities are accessible from the hotel backyard such as jet ski and... More

This hotel has seen better days, with most of the furniture and fittings needs to be updated from the 90's. Air conditioning in the rooms was not working properly and remote was faulty. Bathtub was leaking. Everything else was decent and clean. Breakfast was average at best. It has a good beachfront location and a foodcourt opposite the hotel.

I don't have problems with the room because for me its spacious and value for money. The room was also facing the beach. The only problem was the limited space for parking. The breakfast buffet spread is just average

We like this hotel for the location and the friendlessness of the staff. The rooms are large and the views are breath taking. The staff are the main asset of this hotel and are always willing to help where they can.. The senior management are always around and the SMT seem to be approachable to guests and staff alike. I...

This our fourth time staying here. Management bent over backwards in making our stay most enjoyable. Mr Foo again accommodated our needs and we will look forward to coming back again. The Rainbow Paradise is located in Tanjong Bungah, about midway between Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi right on the beach. A really pleasant stay.

Reasonable price to stay but the whole hotel (building) too old & seriously need some refurbishment as soon as possible. Walkway carpet looks old & smelly, furniture & fittings in the room in bad condition. Shower head (hose) leaking, air-conditioning unit in bad condition etc. Positive side, big & spacious balcony & it's a pretty nice place sit there and... More
