Stay there for 2 nights. Near the Tim sum restaurant. Worth to go to eat in the morning. It is just on the left side after 7 eleven But the price is on the high side. They have a restaurant for breakfast only. Staff is quite well trained. But for the price, I would choose Glow hotel

At the terminal, we walked 50m to Jalan Magazine, then 80m to Jalan Penang, crossed it to continue onto Jalan Macalister, walked about 150m to... More

We had a few nights stay, all I can say is truly value for money. Perfect location, komtar is just few minutes walk away. Staffs are all friendly and helpful, If you are not a smoker, do remember to request for non smoking floor. And most important of all , good food are just around the corner. Just one recommendation... More

I stayed there on New Year It's good location wee can walk to Penang Square for countdown and not far from bus terminal and a small market, 7/11. The room is clean but quite small and cant see any view from the window. Breakfast is little bit disappointed. Wifi is so poor signal.

Good Location for shopping and food Most of the place are within walking distance. The famous Penang Cendol is only 10 minutes walking distance The overall service from the hotel is good but the breakfast menu can be better . Same menu daily not very attractive as outside food is better off. Limited parking space so you must be ready... More

The hotel location is great, just a short walk to Komtar where you can practically catch a bus to the attractions available - it's quite easy to take the bus with the bus guide pamphlets available; opposite the hotel are where many hawker stalls are set up in the evening - sample the local delicacies like penang laksa, fried oyster...

Good Points: 1. Really good location. Close to city center (Komtar) and food stalls. 2. Cozy room and comfortable bed. 3. Good rates for comfortable stay. 4. Free wifi Cons: 1. Parking space is limited and double-parking is the only solution. You'll have to leave your number just in case you need to remove your car in the middle of... More
