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. A-five-stars receptionist will help your need to find a nice room for you and indeed it was as me and my friend got a better room on higher floors to... More

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. The staff in the morning, about 6.30am handling the check out was very unfriendly bordering being rude. He just kept looking at the computer and was replying in a single worded... More

Bay view Hotel Georgetown Penang came as a place of great value for its rate and great location to explore the town. We stayed in this property several times that we had driven from Bangkok to Singapore. The area around the hotel was convenient for walking and outside dining. Penang was a city that constantly improved its thoroughfare. Therefore being... More

This hotel is very convenient for tourists and people on business trips. We had 4 rooms booked and we all had good views. Rooms were larger than expected and very clean. The rooftop bar at the top is very nice at night. I would recommend a visit. The breakfast menu changed slightly everyday which was good for me as I... More

We arrived here from KL and were greeted by a lovely porter who provided us with instructions to check in. The staff at the desk were competent to an extent in their roles, yet it was the manager who deserves to be removed dishonorably from his position. After checking into our suites, we discovered that the whole floor was inexorably... More

Perfectly nice hotel, nothing extraordinary through. Breakfast had a good variety, but not many western options in my opinion. The threesixty restaurant upstairs isn't a part of the hotel, and it's really pricey for the buffet - actually extortionate. But the rooftop bar is nice. For the nice and reasonably priced food, if you still want to stay in the... More
