4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I am not sure why this hotel is not rated higher. It is very clean, in a good location and has good wifi. I was in Penang on business for 5 nights and found this hotel to be well run, slightly outdated but no more so than any other hotel within the same category in George Town.

Although the personnel seemed to be very helpful, it was diifficult to get bathroom products and coffee replaced despite four visits to the front counter. Breakfast was good but not exceptional. One of the plusses was to have a cold water dispenser in the entrance hall.

Dear Frogtwo, Greetings from Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang. Thank you very much for your review. Please allow me to apologize for the rather poor service from my housekeeping team on the replenishment of the bathroom amenities as well as the coffee/tea. I will look into this and ensure that this service is brought up to par. It is good to... More

We stayed for 3 nights, on a visa run. Its a middle of the road hotel, which is a little tired and dated. It was also a mixture of positive and negatives. We received a warm welcome and efficient check in. After settling into our room, we went to the roof top bar for a well earned drink, after driving... More

A very short walk to lots of the tourist attractions in Penang (10mins), I felt this hotel was very cheap for the quality of our stay. Very welcoming, friendly staff who allowed us to check in a few hours early to our rooms (which was great when we were travelling with a small baby) and who answered any questions politely... More

Hotel and amenities needs a breath of new life. As many reviewed its location is generally acceptable within walking distance to CBD. Another gripe i have is its access to parking. Boy oh boy, if you drove up to reception you have to make another circle to access its parking. The parking itself is off another building behind and the... More

Dear Justin Y, Greetings from Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang. Thank you very much for your review. I regret that you had an issue with the car park location which is behind the hotel. Nevertheless, I believe that the central location of the hotel would make up for the minor shortcomings. Thank you. Kind regards Lawrence Perera Hotel Manager More

Whilst the hotel might be showing its age and some of the décor is a little behind the times this hotel is generally well maintained. The room we had was very large and spacious with a modern bathroom and the signs that efforts to keep up to date had at least been attempted although a complete re-styling might be more... More

A nice place to rest after a busy day at Office. Places of attractions, pubs and night clubs, street food heaven, Padang Kota Lama, Indian Street, Ferry Jetty and many more are just a walk away! Corporate office establishment & Government Offices are not far away too.
