Good hotel, helpful and attentive staff. Location great with easy access using buses or taxi's, but the best feature was the rooftop bar and restaurant, with far reaching views and a great music. The location is central with restaurants and shopping within short walking distance. China town and the port area not far. Bus stop 5 minutes walk.

The room that we stayed was a family room which was pretty good. We booked for a standard room but we got a free upgrade which was much appreciated. Breakfast was not bad at all and good variety and the pastry from Bayview was excellent.

Bayview was a little tricky to get to. To get here by car (as we did), you need to turn into a small slightly obscured lane. Once we got there, it was overall very good. Free parking, staff friendly and helpful, and room very well presented and very well sized. We were also given a free room upgrade which was... More

Big round applause good to Lawrence Periera the GM of the hotel. We checked in on August 24th for one night. We booked for standard room apparently there was no room available when We arrived. The FOA named Magdalene upgraded the room to Superior that is 1227. Reasonable bed, cosy and excellent airconditioner. The only lacking here is the water... More

The car park is just right beside petron petrol station after you drive past the lexus car showroom. You turn right and you will see the petrol station and you have to drive up the slope but watch out for oncoming cars as both way use the same drive way. The room was clean and nice enough. For better view... More

This was the second time this year that we had stayed at the Bayview. We booked a deluxe room and were a little disappointed that it was a smaller corner room. The air conditioning was extremely noisy on switching it on and to the hotel's credit, a maintenance fellow came promptly to look at it. We were eventually moved to... More

Stayed here during the 17-Aug-14, CFAL event. Rooms are reasonably priced. Clean. 2 large beds enough for my boy (4 yrs), wife & me. You can carry your bike up to your room but the hotel staff will ask you to dismantle them due to their concern it will takes up all the space in the lift. We didn't explore... More

Dear DanielWongChengYeow, Greetings from Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang. Thank you very much for this great review and for giving us a 5/5 ratings. As a general rule, we do not allow bicycles in the guest rooms and the bicycles will bring in dirt and grime and this will be difficult for us to clean. We have also had instances where... More

My party of five stayed for two nights at this recently refurbished hotel. We were given a room upgrade because I was a repeat customer. The hotel really looked good and impressive for a 4 star property. I noticed much change in the room............it looked liked it had benefited from a designer's touch. It had a feel of luxury about... More

Nice and helpful people. Got this 360 deg revolving tower on rooftop turns from 7pm to 10pm. Nice place to chill out. Rooms are bed and clean. Good location. Walking distance to red dragon food centre, chocolate museum and cheong fatt sze museum.

We stayed at the bay view hotel for two nights. The hotel has a great location in Penang, George Town is brilliant for exploring, the night food market is a short 3 minute walk and was one of our highlights from our trip around Malaysia.
