My partner and I were travelling around Malaysia and decided on 3 nights in Pulau Penang. As we were arriving on Chinese New Year (not the best day to travel!) during the holiday period we didn't have as much choice of accommodation as usual, or for as cheap as usual, but we ended up very pleased with the EQ Ferringhi....

the place is nice and clean. they service/tidy up the room every morning though not putting the sign :) ... the free breakfast is acceptable considering the price paid for... however, it would have been great if they open up their cafe the rest of the day (and not only breakfast) and serve coffee anytime of the day for guests...

Stayed there few weeks ago. Hotel average setup. Rooms lock need to use key. Location wise very near to food stall. walking distance to seaside & road souvenir shops but regretted to informed that most of the stall sells item that we can find at Petaling Street K.L. but much more expensive.

One Shower (powerful) / One shabby sink / Basic bed (was surprisingly comfortable!!) / Crappy view / Decor shabby / Towels abit drabby / No fridge. One MASSIVE downside, WIFI only available in hotel lobby and... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and everything was fine.The best thing going for this hotel is the location. It is within walking distance to Batu Franggi night market and about 5 minutes to the beach. The room small and very basic facilities.. Its value for the price that was paid.
