The Bayview Hotel, is situated in the heart of Georgetown, within very easy walking distance to basically everything including historical and cultural landmarks. Check out the revolving roof top restaurant, not forgetting the bar outside the restaurant. Red Garden, which sells local food is within 5 minutes of walking from Bayview. Only drawback would be the TV programs available (Wells,... More

This hotel is well located with most rooms offering a great view of the George Town Harbour Bay and Port. The rooms are extremely spacious, though slightly dated. bathroom has tub. The toilet seat was however problematic with water constantly remaining static more than half up above the basin. Beds are comfortable and taxis are available easily. The Property is... More

Final stop of our holidays. This hotel is presented like the “Old Days” of the Raj. Wide open foyer, sweeping staircases, a Bar lounge area for your late afternoon sip of your Gin & Tonic. I hoped I painted a picture of its Style. Our Standard Room, serviced daily was large enough and quite comfortable. Staff were more than helpful,... More

Enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room is spacious and clean. The breakfast is great although can serve more variety of foods. The reception counter decoration can be further improved and the staff can be more 'exciting".

Thank you Bayview Hotel Georgetown. We enjoyed our stay here in Penang. Thanks for making the effort to find us a seaview rooms. The 2 adjoining rooms were clean, big, spacious and the bathroom is slip-free, which I find is an effort to understand customers needs. We do not know when we will be back in Penang but thank you...

Was "welcome" with a bad attitude in front desk name Izham. Was doing some simple checkings with the guy whether we can have an arrangement of early check in. Then was turned down directly without "sorry",without "smile" and unpolitely. If this was a 4star accomodation I would rate -4star. Also tell Izham dun be in service line if u cant... More

The “City Bayview Hotel,” as it is known by locals, is a large hotel (300+ rooms) close to the heart of the city center of Georgetown, Penang. The hotel is showing signs of age (this place would have been the height of fancy hotels 20 years ago, both in terms of its style and decor), but it is clean and... More
