Helpful and friendly staff. The hotel is located close to the city center and just next to food hawkers. Reasonable price and comfortable and clean rooms. The breakfast is reasonable as well. It's very easy to get a taxi from the hotel and the staff is helpful to give you tips on what to see and where to go in... More

We stayed a week at Sunway. The room has been refurbished and was clean, pleasant and adequate for a comfortable stay. However sound proofing isn't the best so noise does travel in from the corridors. My sleep was often interrupted due to doors closing and people talking while walking along the corridor etc. I also found the bed a bit... More

Refurbished decently. Clean and organized. Our room was alright. Nicely spaced but nothing else to shout about. The bathroom is also well organized. Very well located with one of the many well known eating street right at the door step. The 'but' part is the not-too-friendly staffs. They weren't rude but they weren't smiley either. Don't complain if you're not... More

The only we like this hotel is the location to the famous street food of Penang. The hotel staff are not very friendly, it seems like they are not properly trained. Nothing really to shout about. This place lacks the warmth. Maybe this is what we should expect for the price we pay.

I stayed one night in Sunway Hotel, Georgetown, Penang and was very satisfied. Reasonable price, good quality hotel, comfortable and clean room. Very good location, close to city center and hawker center. Very friendly and helpful staff. I would stay here again and recommend to family and friends.

Stayed here with wife and my parents on a short trip to Penang. Really enjoyed the stay here and definitely worth it. Service - Very friendly and helpful service. Got served a couple of cold juices on our arrival which was nice considering how hot it was outside. The whole hotel's service was really good. Value - Not as pricey... More

The hotel is located quite central of Georgetown,so we could easily get most attractions by walk. A popular hawker center is right beside it. If you're seeking for some famous local foods,you could get some there and most of them are delicious with reasonable prices.

Sunway exceeded my expectations in more ways than one. It is the hotel of choice for me the next time i am in Penang. Will certainly recommend this place to friends. Am especially impressed with their consistent service standards.

Sunway Hotel has a great location near Komtar Tower (where you can catch buses going everywhere on the island as well free tourist bus cruising around historical city centre), 1st Avenue and Prangin shopping malls and fabulous hawkers on the New Lane! We ate there every single night during our stay, food is exceptional! Hotel is newly renovated, rooms are... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights in July. We found this place on tripadvisor and were encouraged by the positive reviews. I have been to Penang before and stayed in the Traders which was double the price yet Sunway provided the same quality service. On top of that, there were lots of amazing foodie stalls right on...
