The hotel was comfortable and affordable. Staff were helpful, room was big and clean, had nice view. The pool was shallow on one end and very deep on the other end. (3.5m) The windows let in a lot of outside noise though, and i could hear the 'music' from the club either downstairs or at the roof. Overall, nice stay... More

Situated just across the road from the famous E&O hotel, the Bayview has seen better days in terms of its decor and facilities in the rooms. It's a great location from which to explore George Town and is very close to the top end of Chulia Street, Leith Street and Jalan Penang and has some views across the waterfront. There... More

The staff are extremely helpful and the location is great for downtown Georgetown. My wife had a problem using the in-bath shower so the management kindly gave us an upgrade with a separate shower in the bathroom at no extra charge. My only whinge is that the mattress was rock hard and the pillows were fluffy but too thin to... More

The location was perfect. Just a little away from the busy Penang road. So, you can get easily to necessary transport & food. The room information was misleading. So, were the comments offered by previous customers. My deluxe-rm 33-sqm seemed smaller (rm 1229 on 1/3 to 4/3/15) and faced a construction site with tall crane imm seen across the road... More

Stay at this hotel "by accident" but apparently it was a good choice as it is very close to George Town, which you should visit during your time in Penang.

The Bayview is lovely place to stay in Penang with very big rooms and bathrooms. Location was great and within 3 minutes distance from all the food joints and Pubs. We had a great holiday and we would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.

The rooms were pretty spacious and clean. The stay was nice except for a noisy air cond. However, the service at the front desk needs to be improved tremendously.
