I personally feel the rooms were comfortable. The only comments i would say 1. The mobile network coverage is very very poor in this hotel. Can't really get any incoming calls and also cant do any outgoing calls. 2. The breakfasts variety is very less. Only same meals been served everyday. Choices of food should be increased. other then thats... More

I was afraid by those comments previously showing the bad condition if the hotel room after I booked through agoda site. I booked deluxe room through agoda at the very last minute however the room provided is clean and comfortable. The room comes with sufficient facilities with also iron & ironing board, mending kit. The building is slightly old especially... More

The best moment I had at the hotel was when I first step down from my car. We were "welcomed" by a bouncer wannabe. True, he is responsible for valet and traffic. But it doesn't mean he can't smile and greet anyone, especially us guests. The moment I opened the car door, he held it (the door) and ask me... More

Dated and tired hotel. Make my business trip very tired. Cannot rest well as the room is dusty and carpet is dirty. Will not check in to this hotel anymore. Breakfast is ok, standard buffer style. Only good thing is there is a Supermarket link to the hotel. Walk straight down and you can find some eateries.

Me and my 8 girlfriends selected Park Royal Penang hotel based on the positive reviews and awesome experience with other park royals ... but unfortunately, i was pretty disappointed with my stay in penang from 12th to 14th September 2014. On entering room 436, the room wasn’t done up. ( FYI, I checked in at almost 6pm or so which... More

Very nice modern hotel. Spacious and quiet rooms with all the amenities. Good breakfast. Not far from downtown and chinatown (at walking distance). Free parking. Convenient if you move with your own wheels.

- Stay here for two night in July. - First stay is two years ago. - Room cleanliness is okay. - Room design is old. Crack is found in toilet basin. - Parking is available. There is a multi-level parking at the back of hotel - If renovated, we might choose to visit again.

we stayed here in June , and probably won't stay here again if we based everything on our arrival experience. I found the check in staff unwelcoming and not the most professional. The porter however was much more friendly. We arrived to our room, and found that the air conditioning was not working, and that the lights didn't work either.... More

Stayed here for a night. Got up graded to a family suite. Nice room with a view of the swimming pool. Room is relatively cramped but every corner of it are put to good use. Good water pressure in the shower but could do with an extra lighting in the shower cubicle. Air conditioning is good but would have been... More

My wife and I are British, I only say this because this review will thus have a European perspective. My wife was working in George Town and I was accompanying her as a tourist. Our accommodation was adequate. The carpet was dirty, the furnishings and the curtains were stained and the air conditioning did not seem to function properly. The... More
