I stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel with my wife and 3 teenage kids for a week taking the Deluxe Lagoon rooms. We were accommodated with connecting rooms and were pleasantly surprised with the quality and wonderful facilities and marvellous direct access to the pool from our rooms. Fantastic and well worth the little extra. Breakfast was included in the... More

Great place for families with kids. There is a beach but the pool area is all a kid could want. I loved the rooms with the direct access to the pool. Then there's the water play area for kids of all ages. The best part was the sandy bottom of the pool. So in the heat of the equatorial sun... More

This hotel is nice and youthful. Staff is helpful and friendly and fooling around. Food was fine and so was the breakfast. Next to that hotel was Hard Rock Cafe where you can listen to live music every night.

Stayed here in july for 3 nights in a seaview room. Initially were on 3rd floor, but required as smoking room and were moved to 6th floor. The view was amazing. Room is a good size and having balcony was a real bonus. All staff were friendly and always acknowledged you. Reception staff were super. The pool was huge and... More

I have lost count of the number of visits we've made, first with one baby, now with two energetic boys. It's like visiting an old friend in Penang. Got a card in the room from the manager, welcoming us back, a fruit basket, chocolates and complimentary hotel merchandise. Nice! I noticed some improvements in the pool area - rails have... More

We travelled as a family with two older teenagers and therefore needed two rooms. We decided not to have interconnecting rooms & instead booked a pool deluxe room and a Seaview deluxe room. Both rooms were identical other than of course the pool room had its own deck leading straight into the pool & the Seaview room had a balcony... More

A good 4* hotel with excellent facilities - massive pool, nice big quiet gym and great food at all the restaurants. However there were quite a few negatives- the service is not fantastic- I had to wait a while at reception on a few occasions and also the room-keeping services were actually quite poor. They only included making beds and... More

From the moment we arrived at the Hard Rock Hotel Penang we were treated like Royalty. We had booked the Lil Rockers Room with the Kings Club upgrade. As soon as we arrived we were taken to the 6th floor to the Kings Club room for a private check which included a fresh juice in an air conditioned room with... More

Truly a place for total R & R for the whole family. Clean, classy and excellent ambience. Though not very affordable, it is a must have luxury at least once. Value for money and the staff are so pleasant, helpful and polite. The entire set-up is so well planned. Though the pool can get pretty crowded, it's truly a kids... More
