Our first experience here was the poor service at check-in. We arrived 2 hours before check-in and I had hoped that we could do the paper work, store our bags and then maybe go for a swim. No, all we could do is store our bags and go to the restaurant while we watched and wished we could get into... More

I had visited Penang on Last May, 2016 with my husband on our 2nd honeymoon and we chose to stay at Flamingo by the Beach Hotel. We stayed on 13th floor and took sea view room. The moment I got into my room, I was speechless as I could see the whole sea from my balcony. The room was spacious,... More

Book Flamingo because it was reasonably priced, so I didn't expect much. The hotel is pretty average overall. Rooms were nice spacious, however, the upkeep could have been a little better. Had breakfast at the coffeehouse this morning... man was it crowded, I suppose the hotel was running full because of the weekend. Spread, how should i say it...? Er...... More

Most awful customer experience I've had in Malaysia. Poor payment security(hand writing and storing card details). Poor checkin process. Had to fight tooth and nail to get billed correctly at three separate occasions and were told off for using restroom facilities after we checked out. Never ever again and will warn anyone I know who is going to Penang
