The hotel lobby and lift are small, rooms are dirty with ants crawling around. Housekeeping took their own sweet time to clean up our rooms. The staffs kept banging the door early in the morning. No place to keep our toiletries in the bathroom. Everything was bad.

We did appreciated this hotel - good value for good price, nice room, for somebody it can be small, but for those who want it basically just for overnight is a very good choice. Big bathroom. Good breakfast, omelet cooked directly for each customer separately. The only thing we didn´t appreciated was the overloaded internet connection.

Location is good, within walkable distance to komtar where free shuttle bus is available. In the direction of Hotel Sunway Georgetown, there is street food available, but standard of food average only, can skip. Quite some coffeeshops nearby so meals are not a problem. Breakfast buffet was average, there were fried rice/noodles, bread pudding, baked beans, potato wedges, hotdogs/ham, fried... More

Hotel Sentral Georgetown is very near to Bus terminus - Kamdar. You can reach any part of penang from kamdar via Rapid Penang - Public Transport. Hotel Staff were polite and cordial. We felt Room size was little smaller when compared to KL, but for the same price. Booked via expedia website and no issues in checking in and out.... More

The main issue we had with this hotel was the unbearable smell of cigarette smoke. We had asked for a non smoking floor, but we weren't given one. The first 5 floors of the hotel are smoking and then the 3 above are non smoking. Bad arrangement since smoke always rises! The internet was practically non existent. The location of... More

We stayed here for one night. We booked one double room and a family room. Good for travellers who needed a place to sleep and a shower. Nothing special in the hotel but good location. There are many food stores around the area.

For the money, Hotel Sentral is OK. If it was cheaper, then it would be impressive. Our family room was a good size, with a proper lounge area, and a large bathroom. Beds were comfortable but some might find the mattresses a bit hard (suits me though). Our room faced the main road but we had no issue with noise... More
