This is my second visits to Penang and my first at HRH Penang, a very nice hotel. I have chosen the balcony suite that facing the beach, what a nice view. I can see the beach activities, also the swimming pools from my room. The room is spacey, clean and quiet. You can choose quite a number of electric guitar... More

Never been better for the adults as well as the kids. This is the place where the family could gather, have fun & make some noise. Something different than other hotels/resorts. We experienced the seaview rooms from different angle and the lagoon too. Breathtaking! The kids love the lagoon room where they could just jump into the pool straight from... More

Room was clean, nice, and cosy, definately havin the feel of a rockstar just by lookin at the paintings on the wall!... More

This was the first time I visited a Hard Rock hotel. I must say it felt pretty average walking in. I wasn't impressed with the layout of the lobby. However the pool was interesting. Quite a few children in there. Was surprised to find out that they don't give rewards points. Follow my adventures/pictures on Instagram & twitter: @JanakaEkanayake

Stayed in a fifth floor sea view room for 5 nights and I must say it was amazing. Hard Rock is well known around the world and it's now easy to see why. The hotel was very well - maintained, and the service was amazing. The hotel has numerous cafes and restaurants and they all serve a high quality of... More

We enjoyed a delightful 3 night stay at the Hard Rock Hotel in Penang. Though the hotel was at 100% occupancy throughout our stay, it was great to see how the staff handled it so well. From the welcome we received, through the efficient check-in, the great service at the Starz Diner and throughout the hotel, we were extremely impressed.... More

I had high expectations for such a well-known brand name, so I was pretty disappointed when the hotel turned out to be rather 'ordinary'. Perhaps I went during the wrong time , during the year end season when the hotel was crowded with holiday makers and noisy kids. The hotel ground was quite small and did not give that "resort"...

Dear maysie Thanks for your review. You are correct it is the Malaysian school holidays right now which is actually our peak period. Our 26,000 sq ft swimming pool is indeed our biggest attraction and gets a lot of use during this time of the year. We have a round the clock team of pool cleaners and our pool is... More

Chose this hotel because of lagoon room..great choice and loved the easy access to pool from our room. Hotel is also not a high rise like others along beachfront. Because Chechin took quite some time...we were given access to kings club for duration of our stay....excellent. Nice service and great view from balcony. Loved our stay.......

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in October 2014 and it was great!! We had a pool access room that was right near the swim up bar, we could just kick off the steps of our room and float in to the bar without having to paddle. The staff are super friendly and very efficient. They have... More
