Despite being sick when I arrived had a great stay here. The staff on reception were always friendly especially one of the girls, cant remember her name. Room was good a little small but ok. Only thing strange was that bathroom thought it could have been better planned. A huge shower, but toilet behind door made it difficult to get... More

This is a budget hotel where you can stay a night if you are - like me - traveling from Langkawi to Ipoh, specially for bus travelers because the station is close to the hotel, the other advantage is that it's about 10 min walking from the best restaurant in Penang which is Line clear serves the best Nasi kandar

We stayed for three nights. Staff was friendly, rooms was comfortable with good housekeeping and the hotel is a 5 min walk to komtar (Main bus interchange). The only problem is our room window faces another rooms' window so we do not have a view and have to keep the curtains shut most of the time. We did not take... More

We stayed there 3 nights. Average hotel, small rooms, clean, good service. Price included breakfast which was very handy, and omelettes etc cooked to order. The hotel is close to restaurants and food courts. I would stay there again.

Pro: - location is OK, just 5min walk to Kotmar but a bit far to Georgetown downtown. 10min walk to Jalan Kimberly/Jalan Campell, where lots of local food can be found. A small night food market is just 100meter away on the main road. - Hotel car sent to airport service is reasonably charged at RM45 (vs. taxi ~RM40). -free... More

Clean and great service. Had a nice view of Georgetown. Any problems, the staff were there. Beds and sheets were clean. Complimentary water and a mini bar were helpful. The only few negatives are the toilet door keeps jamming and the walls need a new paint job.

Centrally located in a quiet street, Hotel Sentral Georgetown, lives up to its name. It is less than about 45 minutes drive from the airport. Hardly a 10 minute walk from the Komtar (Bus Stand) and the Shopping Malls of Penang. The famous Penang street food is just across the road. Rooms are spacious, neat and clean and well maintained....

To really appreciate this place, always remember how much you pay for it (I booked through Agoda, so the price may be lower than booking directly with the hotel). The hotel is centrally located and close to hawker food source and attractions. The lobby and cafe (where buffet breakfast is served) may be small and cramped, but the room is... More
