Stayed here for a week on our honeymoon and we cannot fault a single thing. The hotel has a great vibe and is perfectly located. A 10min walk to the Night Market and probably has the best pool out of all the hotels. If at the pool, make sure you see Paran, Jeya or Dina. Ask for an 'Anna's Apple'.....trust... More

We booked a poolside room after checking them out on their own website and were really impressed with the room access into the pool, the inroom facilities were good too with large screen TV free movies a DVD player and a music system with iPod connector. This was a anniversary trip for my wife and celebration of 9 months cancer... More

We went to Hard Rock Hotel after hearing from multiple sources that it was paradise for kids. We got there and was thrilled with the room (the Roxity Kids suite) and the following morning were in awe of the awesome pool and full schedule of Kids Club activities. This hotel clearly markets itself at families with children so I was... More

This was the third time at this hotel but the first review. Unfortunately, it wasn't a good vacation this time around. We felt like 2nd class citizens due to another event (a noisier one) taking place at the hotel and it appears that all focus were on that event & not to the other guests. The plus .. Nice pool...

Our family stayed over at Hard Rock Hotel Penang in June – making it the third time we have stayed in this Rockin’ place in the last 5 years. So yes, this is a long overdue review. First of all, the good stuff – the Pool Villas is a major fun-factor for both kids and adults alike. Secondly, the tunes... More

Great pools and water activities for the kids and nice, spacious pools for the adults also. Breakfast offered a great selection for everyone. We were lucky enough to be there on the first Saturday of the month for... More

This was the start of our two week trip, and was a great place to acclimatize and relax. The kids had a great time in the pool and the location was good for us.
