On the plus side the reception staff were helpful, and the hotel is well located for local services, although in some cases it would be preferable to be further from them. But there are plenty of bars and shops etc, and you are close to the free shuttle bus service that can take you around Georgetown. You could alternatively be... More

Clean hotel with all the necessary amenities. Excellent location to all the tourist attractions and local delights.At RM 150 - 200 a night, it is great value for money. 24 hours convenience store on the ground floor makes shopping very convenient

On an earlier trip, we had stayed at another hotel with similar ranking. Hotel Malaysia was cleaner with newly renovated bathrooms. Breakfast is average but the rooms were quite comfortable. It is also centrally located and outside were many restaurants. There is also a convenience shop located in the same row.

I stayed there with my girlfriend and we were very happy with the service and location. It is close to shops and excellent food.Would highly recommend. Big YESSS... The staff members were very helpful and got free Wifi Internet. Rooms were clean and modern. I was amazed by the lightings and reading LED lights. Great value.

This is my 2nd business trip back and it was still ever awesome. Impeccable service by the front staff, the room is immaculate and clean (can't find any fault or hair!) and hotel is at a great location to all places. Definitely the place to stay when i'm in Penang!
