I am glad that I stayed in Sunway Hotel for my recent first visit to Penang.
The staff , from the manager to the receptionists, housekeeping maid, telephone operators and service staff at the breakfast hall were very friendly and helpful. They were cheerful and consistently courteous and thus they really gave me a good impression of Penang's charm and warmth. They are great ambassadors for the hotel and Penang. Kudos to them.
The executive deluxe room was clean and comfortable since it is newly refurbished. The colour scheme was soothing, not loud at all. Pillows were soft and comfortable yet sufficiently firmed for neck support. Bathroom was spacious and it has good shower pressure, so shower time is a joy. It will be even better if the hotel could provide an anti-slip mat in the shower room since the new flooring can be a little slippery after the shower. This is important especially if there are older folks using the shower room. There's good lighting at the full length mirror just outside the toilet, this is very useful for older folks and women.
Breakfast has sufficient variety - salad, cereals, Chinese, soup/fried noodles, Indian curry, nasi lemak, assortment of bread, waffles, fresh milk, coffee, tea, warm water and fruits.
Hotel location is excellent, hawker stalls and coffee shops just a few metres outside the hotel, and major shopping centres (Komtar, 1st Ave Mall and Prangin) are only about 7 to 15 minutes walk (depending on your walking speed). There's a convenient store just next to the hawkers and coffeeshop, so the hotel is a good choice for those travelling with older folks or children.
Overall, the hotel location is excellent and its service staff are efficient and helpful.
