So slow.. almost unusable... too many people are logging in and the WiFi is not locked. Anyone can use. Should improve on this as travellers need Internet badly to browse and plan our days. Other than that.. hotel is quite pleasant and helpful customer service. Special thanks to Ririn in front office desk. She has been a great help.

This hotel is very nice compared to the Sentral in Kuala Lumpur. The rooms have been newly renovated and are extremely clean. the staff is very courteous and helpful. The food buffet was ok but could use some improving. Capital One Leisure's in the lobby will help arrange all your tours and transportation.

It was good to stayed at Hotel Sentral Penang. Superb location with good din zum restuarant and street food nearby. Just 5-10 minutes walk to Komtar. Very convenient. 1 thing I don't like about this hotel is smell. Someone smoking next door and smell was very strong.

It is a very nice place to stay, it locates near the food paradise just walk a couple of meters away and furthermore it also locates near komtar so it will be easy for someone to go to any anywhere with bus, the receptionists are . On the other hand the room is quite small. But the eating room (cafe)... More

I stayed a night here with my partner. It's clean and nice either room or toilet. We had made a request through their website and the management do fulfill what we request for. The price is reasonable and cheap as the time we traveled was public holiday. We will make another booking again next round.

The hotel's location is very strategy, because we can go to the famous Jalan Macalister to eat Penang's good food. But worst thing is the hairdryer is second hand. I heard this from their own maintainance, the management hotel tell them if can repair, just repair.. yeah sure the hairdryer can be repair, how about customers' satisfaction? Cannot be repair...
