I took a team of 50 pax to stay in Penang for a Annual business conference. I am into a global venture expanding my markets. So I spoke to Alan... More

Amazed by the cleanliness of the hotel/rooms and the wonderful smelling lobby (the aroma from the essential oil burning at the entrance fills up the entire lobby). While waiting for check-in, we were offered free snacks and drinks. There is a small snack counter in the lobby where customers can help themselves to free snacks and drinks almost throughout the...

We thought the Apollo was just ok. The room is incredibly small -- two people can barely stand in the room at the same time and there is nowhere to unpack. In fact, the hotel implores guests to leave their suitcases under the bed, which isn't very convenient. And, as is admittedly shown in the photos, the bathroom walls are... More

Overall the hotel was very clean and the small rooms were cosy. In arrival we were very happy. However it all changed when we were woken up by a consistent loud noise from the canopy outside blowing in the wind. As we were right by the canopy side of the hotel we asked to switch rooms, and after a couple... More

I expected very little from the Apollo Inn given it's cheap price. From the moment I walked through the lobby doors though, I was impressed. The lobby itself is stunning, with a peaceful ambience. I loved the artwork and the lounging area, which reception is happy for you to utilise at any time. The staff were amazing- some of the... More

Hotel is near shopping centers and wholesale centers, free feeder bus ride just about 5 minutes walk, hotel staffs are friendly, can ask where the free shuttle bus to go round George Town. Nice Penang food around. Thumbs up, will be back.

I liked this hotel. The staff were excellent. The breakfast and snacks were beyond good. The location was very good and the standard of cleaning couldn't be better. There are some negatives. however. My room was tiny and had no window. The price is on the high side and they require a deposit on top of prepaying for the room.

The staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel also provides free breadfast,which is not bad. You can reach a lot of delicious food on Shantou Street in the evening just a 1 minute walk from the hotel and you can get to the shopping mall quickly

You get food the moment you step out of Apollo Inn. Very convenient location and friendly staffs who help us in getting around Penang. Free snacks at ground level. Room is a little cramp though and need more space to put things especially in the toilet. There are mosquitoes in the roof top, perhaps can do something about it. Other... More

Spent one night at Apollo Inn with two friends and we really enjoyed ourselves. Central location in George Town, free snacks, great breakfast, clean rooms and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.
