We wanted to stay in town, as our visit to Penang was mainly to see the spruced up and restored colonial and Nyonya buildings. This hotel was a pretty good choice as it was not too far from the historic old town, a short taxi ride, about RM15-20, or a short walk to the free green bus service near the... More

Sunway Hotel is located outside of the historic downtown area where most people want to be exploring, yet still convenient walking distance to a number of places. A street food vending area and mini-mart are just 2 minutes outside of the door; a unique McDonald's and marginal Times Square mall less than 5 minutes; a mid-sized GAMA grociery store less... More

Good hotel in great location. Walking distance to most good eateries in Georgetown. Room is spacious yet cosy. One issue I had was noises coming from the upstairs neighbour above me as I could hear footsteps and banging noises during the night. That aside, I would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Penang.

This is a belated review of the Sunway Hotel Georgetown in the city of Georgetown on charming Penang island. The hotel has been a mainstay of the island for awhile but it has recently undergone some renovations so everything looks updated and fresh thankfully. The Sunway Hotel Georgetown looms in the background while the New Lane hawkers bustle. The hotel... More

From the receptionist to the Bell boy, everyone has been really helpful. When we arrived, our room wasn't ready, but atleast there was a mall within walking distance. Room is really comfortable, clean, and it was definitely above my expectation. Very nice
