The staff are very friendly and helpful. The condo is not worth the price they charge.It is not well maintained,not enough power points in the Bed rooms and upkeep of condo is dismal.We would choose another place to stay at on a visit to Penang. As we say at Home,it is a dump!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and i can say that the location of this condo is very strategic for those traveler who wishes to see the historical site of Penang in Georgetown. You can find restaurants and food court around the corner but not within walking distance. You need transport to travel around if u stay here because the... More

Stayed at Desa Pelangi for 3 nights at the start of our Malaysian trip. The family that we are travelling with has 2 kids - so between us (them a party of 4 & us a party of 3) apartments was the way to go. One of the things I've found travelling with kids in Asia is that most room... More

I booked this at the end of a longer holiday for a deluxe stop-over before heading home. The apartment was described as deluxe. On arrival, we were given a large apartment that had not been renovated since the 70's - in good need of a thorough spruce-up - bathroom very daggy, stained bath and sink, dodgy paint job. We spoke... More

We went to Georgetown, 5 of us, for Medical Checkup, so renting apartment is making more sense especially since the hospital (Loh Guan Lye) is just a stone away from this apartment. We also rent a car, so this would make renting this apartment is more appealing since there are lots of parking lot provided and with no extra charge.... More

There were 5 of us, so it made more economic sense to rent an apartment instead of staying in a hotel. First, the positives: spacious, within walking distance to eateries, situated on a quiet street away from the main road, certain Astro channels on tv (small and non-flat screen though). Now the negatives: the place is old, tired, and in... More

The apartment is spacious with 3 bed rooms. Room is a bit run down but beds and bedsheets are reasonably clean . Its located in Georgetown, 1.5 km walking to Komtar. Not too far but not too near either, there are plenty of eateries along the way. The kitchen and washing machine were fully functioning but there was no washing... More

The way the management contact us for our personal details and asked us to bank in the money was very rude. The apartment looks cosy, but cleanliness (I.e.the washing machine area needs improvement). We admit we made some noise, but the way the management (Ms Wati) approached us was like confronting us by initiating a scold. Our friends visited us... More
