When we stayed there, the renovation work is almost finished. According to the information we got, only one floor left to be renovated and the renovation itself doesn't effect our stay. We like the room because it is simple and spacious. The bathroom is good as they have a glass to separate dry and wet section and the pressure of... More

Newly renovated, old place. Clean facility. Prompt service. Below average breakfast. Located at central place in Georgetown. Very near to all good eating places. Lower rooms can be slightly noisy. Adjacent to other 3 & 4 star hotels which can be more expensive than this hotel.

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

Spotted this Hotel on my last visit to Penang and decided to give it a try on my next visit. On entering the Hotel there's a musty damp smell which had me wondering straight away if I'd made the right choice. After checking in the receptionist then informed us that a renovation was underway, oh no another pointer all was... 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.
