Hotel Sentral Georgetown is not a x-star hotel, hence please do not expect a x-star service. What we experienced at this hotel was comparable to the hotel rate. Good 1) Carpark is always available, even late at night. The carpark attendant will find a carpark lot within the hotel premise. 2) Location. As we rented a car, we didn't really... More

1) Poor service by hotel receptionist ( Cherry ). Even we paid all to Air Asia , but Cherry denied that we need to top up the difference ($50) to have a roll up bed & free buffet breakfast. After we reticfy with her regarding this, she then realised their hotel got this package. 2) Bad design of hotel room,... More

We booked two rooms and indicated queen-sized beds and non-smoking rooms. When we reached there, the receptionist gave us rooms with single beds on smoking floors. When we asked them, they claimed that that was what they have. Full-stop! Too bad!

Modern, nice looking, clean rooms. Quite a spacy and clean bathroom. Fridge in the room, restaurant on-site, within walking distance to the historical part of the town. We really liked it. The only objection is that if you order a taxi through them they don't just call a taxi but gain additional profit on it - we paid really too... More

Rooms are modern, reliable a/c and hot water and comfortable bed. Has everything i need for good nights rest. Location is good, about 5 mins walk to komtar area for shopping, and 10mins to heritage area. Building is prominent and easy to spot (good for those who prefer to go on foot/bus instead of taxis). Just hop on a bus... More

I stayed in this hotel last year during my trip to Malaysia. The hotel building looks bland from outside, but inside it is good. The check-in process was fast , as was the check-out. Coming to the room - it was small, but amenities like mini-bar, kettle were provided. There were 2 Queen size beds, which are good enough for... More

Hotel location is great, about 5 - 10 minutes walk to tourist attractions. Hawker center about 2 minutes walk from the hotel, shopping malls about 5 minutes walk. Service was below average, very slow staff and doesn't seem to be interested in their job. Concierge was busy talking away with her friends, stood for about 5 minutes while getting ignored... More

Booked 4 rooms and have indicated non-smoking rooms for all. But was allocated to a smoking floor (Level 2). When we questioned the hotel reception, he have the cheek to say that we only indicated "non-smoking ROOMS" and not "non-smoking FLOOR"!?!? He said that all rooms are non-smoking. SO DOES IT MEAN THAT TENANTS CAN ONLY SMOKE IN THE CORRIDORS... More
