Even before checking in, I was already pleased with their level of service rendered. My family and I, having booked multiple rooms, enjoyed speedy check-ins with no problems. The staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. The rooms were spacious and very well-kept, with complimentary coffee and tea and comfortable beds that let you just sink in and relax. I...

We attended a conference at another hotel nearby. We chose Sunway because of its location within walking distance to the conference venue, and, of course, the price. What I like most was the surroundings, local food stalls, supermarkets, shopping malls, souvenir shops.

This hotel is in the center of George Town which is the capital and largest city in Penang. First time we stayed here for 4D3N with 3 children as our family holiday on the 3rd week of March 2015. Don't let the external view of the hotel let you down. Inside it is quite beautiful and clean and it is... More

The hotel is sitting at a good location. Room is moderate sized. Bathroom has shower but no hot tub. The only issue is that room Wifi password does not work in the lobby - you have to ask it from the reception.

The location is good. Near shopping malls, and the food stalls just outside the hotel. We have a good view of the city from our 14th floor room which the front desk had kindly upgraded to us. Ah, the hotel staff are so polite and friendly. It makes our stay so enjoyable.

We requested to add an additional bed in the room, it came within half hour. Our room was neat and tidy. There are some hawkers stall outside the Hotel selling the traditional Penang Dishes, the Porridge is tasty. You will have to walk further to Lebuh Keng kwee street to try the famous Chendol and of course, the Gurney area... More

Excellent Hotel. Very good service with nice environment. Lots of hawker stall nearby - walking distance in less then 2 minutes. Parking space is limited but they do provide alternate parking which is opposite of the hotel. Need to pay first and reimburse back.
