This is a good hotel with views of the bay. We had a room on the top which is great for views but not at night as the club on the top plays loud music and you wont be able to sleep. The sky-view bar at the top does offer nice views of the city at night. The rooms are... More

I stayed at the hotel a few months ago. Initially, I'd some reservations about the hotel especially after finding out that it was not a new hotel. I was impressed with the check-in procedure. Everything was settled within 5 to 8 minutes. Not only that, the hotel lobby was beautiful and bright. I like my room - cosy, clean and... More

The Bayview hotel is well-located, and comes with spacious, clean rooms and friendly staff. The rooms are a little bit dated, but have a fantastic view over the harbor. The bathroom is also reasonably well-maintained, but do note that the shower is really a bathtub with a shower nozzle. At the time of our stay (August 2015) there was some... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Good location, walking distance to padang kota, fort cornwelist,georgetown attraction places and sea. Room was clean and tidy. Staff was helpful. Food was good too but need to add more variety on bread, fruits, pasta.

With some reluctance, I am finally offering my impressions about this hotel—Bayview Hotel Georgetown in Penang, Malaysia. We chose to stay in this hotel because some close friends had raved about its rates, its closeness to the city center, how one can just step outside the building and find economical but delicious hawker foods and local fruits in season, and...

Dear Marc F, Greetings from Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang. Thank you very much for your review. I regret that your perception of the hotel wasn't what you had expected and that you had got the wrong information from your friends. Bayview Georgetown is located in Georgetown on the quieter side. There is a food court right across the road that... More

The hotel is nice and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We felt sincerely welcomed. The rooftop bar has a very nice view in the evenings. Must visit. Our room was sea view and spacious.

Its a nice clean hotel and good with families, though aged. There's food stalls near by that you could walk over and buy. Hotel staff are friendly and its a reasonable hotel to stay for a couple of days.

Great location and spacious room. Within walking distance to love lane and a fairly priced food market but its a little bit difficult to cross the road. Strong WiFi signal. River view not particularly attractive. Staff was helpful. Standard breakfast . gym room is very basic. Overall is above average.
