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. The hotel has a large lobby entrance with plenty of friendly staff ready to help... More

The staffs are friendly and helpful. The taxi stand is just in front of the hotel and there is an open air food court less than five minutes away from the hotel. There are many interesting places that are within walking distant from the hotel, likes Fort Cornwallis, Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Cathedral of the Assumption, Penang City Hall and... More

We stayed one night in that hotel. The hotel is very big, but only has two elevators, this is definitely too less in morning hours when people leave the hotel or want to go to breakfast and need to use the elevators. The rooms are clean, but little basic and not very modern. The breakfast is served in the main... More

The hard stiff mattress felt like its coconut husk stuffed, thin 'china' blankets rolled between 2 sheets that unrolls when in use is appallingly unhygenic, considering blankets are never washed and 'have been publicly shared' for years, by the looks of it likely since the hotel started. This is in all the premier deluxe rooms we stayed. Sleep quality zero... More
