We stayed in the Deluxe Seaview room. As all had said, it’s a chic and stylish hotel with great swimming pool for kids. It’s a family hotel so expect some noises and music. The concierge and reception was nice and efficient, nothing problem. We had a quick and smooth checked in and out. We stayed on 4th Floor left end... More

Dear Stu, Thank you for recently staying with us and very pleased to see that your kids had a great time and made the most of our pool and kids club facilities.

We stayed 4 nights here with our 7 yo girl. What we liked best about the hotel is the kids pool. They have 3 different slides which entertained my daughter heaps. They had kids club too so we were able to go shopping for a few hours while she enjoys the program or simply watch tv, which she enjoyed better... More

Hard Rock Hotel Penang Themes hotels are always fun but getting there in peak hour traffic isn't exactly fun in the typical 100 degree heat.  Room modern but small. Tiny bathroom sink doesn't do a good job in containing water unless you're trying to wash your tiny face. Bed is comfortable but the TV is complicated especially with a remote... More

Good place for family holiday. Awesome pool with slides for kids. My 8yo loves the hotel a lot. From the pool, room, lication even it's surroundings! Would love to come back again. We managed to stay only for one night (9/7/12) since it was fully booked during the weekends.

We stayed at the Hard Rock following recommendations from our friends who visited a few months' ago. The plan was to kick back and relax for a few days and the hotel definitely lets you do that. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and did all that they could to make sure we had a great time. Given... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. Location is wonderful - just on the waterfront - 10min walk to night market. Staff were very happy to assist us with all our queries - making our stay very pleasant. On a slightly less positive note, this hotel backs onto the beach and local traders wait "to pounce" just as... More
