Stayed last weekend for two nights in the hotel. Had a great room overlooking the sea and the E&O Hotel across the road. The rooms were incredibly spacious and comfortable however the general condition of the rooms could be improved. It was like stepping back into the 1980's in terms of decor and colour scheme. The breakfast was very good... More

Stayed mid November. Because of our flight arrived early and went to hotel at 11am to see if we could store luggage. A pleasant young lady said it was Ok and on asking if we could get in early she said she would try. On hearing this a rude male on reception spoke over her and said check in is... More

Location was good, room was spacious. However, the condition of the room could be improved. There were nails jutting out in the bathroom's sink, paint of the bathtub was sort of 'peeling off', table lamp shade was almost breaking apart, towel rack was covered with stains, yuck! With the price, we expected a better quality room. At least, remove the... More

price, location and cleanliness all good, northern end of Penang road 5 minutes from Chulia and Campbell Streets - spacious clean rooms with good housekeeping and a good international breakfast buffet (think roti chennia to danish to cornflakes etc) with half decent coffee. The package prices are good cost value. Been rotating through Asia for 30 years - this is... More

I like this hotel for its location. Lots of decent bars and restaurants just around during the corner and close enough to town to be walkable, but that's where the first niggle comes in. The hotel is on an 'island' surround by busy roads meaning you have to walk up to Penang Street in order to cross safely. I was... More

Dear nov20th, I am glad you found our superior room spacious and that our location is conveniently next to a bank and within walking distance to nearby eateries. We will remind our pool staff to be stricter in enforcing the dress code (although at times this can be challenging) so that rules are enforced for the enjoyment of others. I... More

I stay here for my job. It very nice hotel but not up to the trend as the furniture is very old school but still good to use. Have to get renovate to attract more young people. The hotel is in a good location but the parking the one thing I hate that I decided not to give 5 Star... More

First time try Bayview Hotel for one night accomodation. Room no. 823. We are satisfied with the services provided. Room is spacious, neat and clean bathroom. This is what we want from the hotel. This is our hotel stay if we come to penang again. We hope the hotel can provide more food choices.
