There are restaurants just a short walk to left side of the hotel on Jalan Macalister. For those who love taking photos, one of the Penang Street Art is just across the road. Stayed here twice, first time we went down for breakfast around 10am and most of the food already finished although stated breakfast ends at 10.30. Second stay... More

No swimming pool at this Sentral, but its nearby too all the food places. Hotel is easily located so there is no worrying getting lost. Bed is rather comfortable but pillow just a little soft. Hotel Sentral Group is a gem for all budget travelers as its very affordable. Well done again Sentral for catering to travelers like myself

The room is small, bed is hard. We found a genius toilet door design, we have no idea why there is opening hole at the toilet door therefore air conditional flow inside the shower room which is very freezing. Breakfast is poor... We make a transfer booking from hotel to airport but the transport late.

Terrible hotel. We booked 2 family rooms via the website and the toilet is horrible. The staffs were not trained well, they can't even talk properly when we asked about the gst condition. The manager is super rude and not professional. Giggling and playing around with the other staffs when we need explanation.

Stay here for 3 nights. Very nice location.. near New Lane Hawker Foodcourt, Macalister foodcourt, Komtar, Prangin Mall, 1st Avenue. Helpful and friendly staffs, clean room, but the location of the shower and toilet is a lil bit dissapointing. The toilet's floor is slippery. Gonna come back if I go to Penang again someday

Good location and friendly staff. Checking-in was fast and size of room is good and clean. Street foods was very near, just across the main road. Limited parking space and limited choice for breakfast and low quality.

This hotel is centrally located at George town and by foot can visit the area which is within the unesco world heritage site. Upper penang road is also accessible by foot and that area is where the nightlife scene is. However I would recommend to take taxi at night time since sometimes it might not be safe. The hotel is...

Located near Komtar and near the hawker stalls but 30 minutes walk to the historical sites near the port. Komtar is a large shopping mall that caters for all. If you are willing to walk around you can find Chinatown and Little India easily to find some bargains. The hotel itself is friendly with a small lobby. The rooms are... More

Decent for budget for you to sleep/ bath/ rest. Partitions of rooms might not be the best as you can listen noises from corridor. Parking need to follow their security's arrangement as it is limited, otherwise they might call you early in the morning just in case you are blocking another car. The famous roti canai transfer road is 10... More

The upkeep of the hotel can be better improved. When we checked in to the room, there were tiny ants crawling near the bathroom's wash basin which we just ignore them but it becomes unbearable when we discover there were ants too on the bed and dressing table. I brought it up to the staff's attention where they sent their... More
