Other than the door stopper that almost caused me to trip and fall, I don't have much issues of this hotel. Located within walking distance from Komtar, it's an idea place to put up, and right across the road there's a stretch where numbers of stall are readily to serve some good roadside cuisines.

I stayed in this hotel with my family in November 2014. The front counter service are unacceptable. I booked through the 2 rooms via Agoda, so i requested the best to be side by side for the two rooms since it was a family trip. Upon arriving hotel, it was taking long time for the check-in. Staffs were not trained... More

The Sentral Hotel is affordable, staff courteous and friendly always willing to please. Food is tasty and more than adequate. Very central and short bus rides will take you to all local amenities and local places that are a must visit. Rooms are clean and spacious and looked after each day. A personalized service is guaranteed by all staff.

Pretty good hotel, the street food very close to the hotel is excellent. It's about 10 minutes walk to the main shopping mall and bus station. The rooms are nice and clean and are a reasonable size. It's quite good value.

Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good given that the room was quite cheap. The room window looked at a wall two meters away, but again for the price paid no complaints about the room. Location was not so close to the historical old town, but bus terminal was close.

Pros Everything you expect of a 3 stars hotel, decent price, small lobby, clean room, good facilities, Wifi and also fast moving lift. Buffet breakfast quite good for a 3 stars hotel. Location of the hotel is excellent. Hawker food stall at New Lane opposite the road from the Hotel just 2mins walk. Penang Road 5mins walk away before you... More

Reza at the front desk was a life-saver, arranging for a taxi to bring forgotten items from the hotel to the airport before we departed. So helpful! Rooms are cozy, some a bit smaller than others. Showers are pretty basic. Beds are comfortable enough. Definitely need to take taxis to get to sites/food markets.

The hotel rooms are very clean. The room is brightly light up. The hotel room comes with a free breakfast. I like the breakfast a lot because there is a wide range of variety food to choose from. The food are very delicious. I enjoyed eating them. The price of the hotel is very money worth. I would like to... More
