The room was spacious however it has a strong cigarette odor + musty smell. The sink was leaking in the bathroom. Poor service from the staff. They don't seem to care about their guest nor even try to. WIFI was good in certain part of the room. The good connection is often nearest to the door. Good location. It is... More

Years like bed liner that need to be change and the bed are not so comfortable after a tiring day. As mention free wifi access in the room but you are amazed that you are not able to connect/ search the... More

I decide that I would stay at this Hotel on the recommendation of a "friend". Take my advice, not as a friend, but as a traveller, and give this place a wide berth. There is very little in the rooms apart from a TV that shows either local or Chinese stations and not very of them at that. There is... More

You can get better value for money closer in to town. Stayed one night then moved a bit closer into Georgetown for a room with better wifi and a cheaper cost. Rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean though, although walls very thin could hear traffic noise quite badly. Wouldn't stay again, service wasn't very helpful, not great location and... More

I have stay there for 2 nights for Penang bridge marathon. In overall, the room is clean, tidy & spacious enough for 4 of us. The bed quality is good, air-cond is cold enough. The location is good also because it is near to the town, and we can reach easily when looking for good food. We are very lucky... More

Room was averagely okay, very sparcely furnished but being a budget hotel, nothing to complain about. Spacious bathroom and rain shower was the greatest part of it. Near to 1st Avenue and there is a great eating place nearby with lots of great chows at night. However, free wifi was extremely disappointing. Virtually inexistant on the 3rd floor and reception...

The room appeared clean so we were happy about it, until we had to freshen up when we discovered a filthy towel, I mean it was a used towel!!! It still had some person's dirt and smell on it. I called the front desk who informed me they had no room attendants at the moment so she'll personally bring one... More

The hotel has a good location, 5 mins from Komtar, shopping malls and some food stalls. However, the staff in super 8 failed to my expectation from the online reviews. I actually booked 2 days before I check-in, but the staff seem not to receive my booking and like I have given them trouble. We were 20+ years old but... More
