“Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Stayed for 1 night with my friends, room with a queen bed and a single bed. Location not the best, need to have your own transport to make it easier to moving around. The hotel do provide free parking space with an attendant on duty during night times.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Check in was fast and good lift to our room at 3rd floor. The carpeted room is decent, neither spacious nor small. Cleanliness and bathroom size is ok for a budget hotel.

Comes with complimentary breakfast. Since we woke up a bit late for breakfast, nothing much left for us apart from toast. However, an old lady there kind enough to cook fried noodle for us. The food taste was good.

Even so, Garden Inn is an old property, and everything looks aged and outdated. You can find other new hotels with same rate.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

I usually use another hotel (PPIsland) in Penang, but on this occasion it was fully booked. The Garden Inn is just around the corner so I tried it. The reviews are not too good so I was not expecting a good stay.

I think that the reviews are fairly honet here:-

Older hotel, good location, reasonably priced, very clean. free wifi.

The only downsides are that there is loud karaoke until very late. I was on the top floor and I would have been distubed if I had not been out until 3am myself. The staff are OK, a little dis-interested, I did not take breakfast, but it did not look too "exciting".

I would return, but with earplugs and only on the top floor.
