Came to penang for a weekend getaway. Arrived early and called the hotel if we could check-in earlier and they say there is a room ready. When we arrived, the manager told us that the room will not be ready until 2pm which is also the check in time. I asked him so why they say yes in the first... More

We booked elsewhere but it was so unacceptable (highly discrepancy from online photos) we had to leave and look for elsewhere. We were lucky with the help of a private tour guide acted as taxi pickup driving us around looking for alternatives. And we found Red Rock, we were lucky. We stayed in two rooms next to each other.

I was rather disappointed looking on how dated this hotel is after my previous stay 5 years ago. Although room is big, the carpet is not that clean and dust can be seen at... More

This hotel provides best value by : In general, male staff are much better in terms of English proficiency, experience and knowledge of hospitality. However, the female staff need to be re-trained. The hotel needs to ensure all staff speak English. Excellent location which is next to the night market of Jalan Macalister. Very closed to Komtar and few shopping... More
