Second stay at this B&B but this time in a Standard room. Room size is just nice for short rests during the day and sleeping at night. Not recommended if you want a place to hang around. Breakfast is a good spread to start off your day, although not a full hotel buffet. They provide cookies (at least 6 different... More

Very clean. Helpful staff. Nice breakfast. Free tea and coffee and snacks till 7pm which was nice. No window which was bad and small room. They left a rose in my room as it was Valentine's Day! That was really cute. Great location. Would come back but hated the weird citrus cleaning smells throughout the hotel constantly. Very strong burned... More

I stayed there 4 nights. 2 nights in the cheapest room, 2 nights in a sightly better one. Pros: - good situation, close to the mall, the Komtar bus station, and the sights; but far enough from the tourist/backpacker area, which I appreciated - cheap - good and abundant breakfast - small rooftop terrace to have a drink in the...

The Apollo Inn is a little oasis in urban George Town. The hotel is clean and very comfortable, the staff are friendly, and there are tasty snacks and filtered water available in the lobby. In addition to the great price of accommodation, the hotel is well situated within walking distance to anywhere you would want to go in George Town.... More

My friend and I read some good reviews on Apollo Inn but wasn't sure enough to book it ahead. We spent our first night elsewhere and booked this hotel for the following 2 nights after seeing its condition ourselves. The hotel location was great. It's only 5 -10 min walk to Komtar (Georgetown's bus terminal), from where you can reach... More

A very cozy accommodation. The bed is very comfortable and breakfast is ok. Also, the hotel is near the transportation hub and there an excellent food court near the hotel. In the evening a lot of delicious food will be there. The only problem is if you use the shared bathroom you have to go downstairs and meet the guests... More

Location just beside lebuh kimbarley, just walk 2 min can have a great dinner at lebuh kimbarley. 5 min reach from komtar. I like their rooftop so much. You can enjoy a chitchat night with friend at the rooftop. Room is nice, washroom is clean and comfortable. Will come back for my next penang trip also.

I don't want my review of Apollo to be colored by my opinion of Georgetown. As far as cities go, it's fair; sights, smells, attitudes, level of unforgivingness, etc. That being said, the hotel was good. Maybe a little on the pricey side for what we've gotten in other parts of SE Asia, but my girlfriend and I were happy... More
