Stayed here with my family from 21-23 november 2014. Room was spacious enough even with additional extra bed. Location was good as many malls surrounding the hotel. Well equipped private gym and husband loved the fact that it is open 24/7. Rooms were clean although not many channels available on their tv network (they didnt have a cartoon channel for... More

Stayed in a suite room for 3 nights and liked it very much. Staff were very helpful, polite & attentive. Club lounge was a good experience where you can just drop by for a refreshing drink anytime before 11pm. Very conveniently located with nice shopping malls around. However, we had a very bad experience at one of the malls just... More

Located at the center of town, right next to Komtar and 1st Avenue shopping centre. 10 minutes walking distance to New Lane hawker food centre (non halal). Though the hotel is a bit old, it is clean and room is spacious. Has adjoining room for those family needing more than 1 room. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for a few days before heading out to sister property Shangi La. The hotel is next door to a shopping centre and the bus terminal so great location. We also enjoyed access to the Club Lounge - worth the extra cost to have the benefits of drinks and snacks and a quiet place to sit relax and... More

Came to Jen for a business trip. Location right in town. There are two shopping complexes and a post office within walking vicinity. The Komtar Tower is just behind. Great front desk and concierge staff. Everyone had a ready smile. Breakfast spread excellent, liked the hash browns.

I stayed here for 4 nights in April 2014. The room was tired and the decoration was old-fashioned. My room was very noisy due to problems with the air-conditioning system and I couldn't sleep all night. The room was supposed to be a non-smoking room but it was full of cigarette smell when I entered the room. They couldn't get... More

I stayed here while running the Penang bridge marathon, and the location was perfect. The facilities were amazing especially the gym - top of the range equipment. The hotel is right next to the main bus depot so visiting all the tourist places as well as getting to the start of the race was very easy and cheap. Did not... More

I stayed for 2 weeks. It is clean enough but decor is tired. Bed was firm but comfortable. Wifi is weak, I stayed on floor 8 not far from elevator but far enough to not hear people. The breakfast is OK, nothing special and not very fresh tasting. There is good dim sum in Kimberly st though. Shower over bath... More

JEN Hotel Penang had risen up to its new branding image.Very catchy & fresh outlook of their staff's smart casual new uniform. Over all staff's attitude is positive, they were pleasant,courteous,diligent,helpful & accommodating. Room ambience is cozy,clean & comfortable. Perhaps needs new ID facelift to be more competitive. I can give 5Star for New Image Branding & a Warm Friendly... More

The room was nice and clean and comfy. My only complaint was that I had to hunt for the hair dryer (It's in the desk drawer, BTW). Staff was great. They were friendly, helpful, and had great recommendations when we asked. The breakfasts were good and there was always plenty to eat.
