3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in the Bayview for 1 week and it does tick most of the important boxes, depending on what requirements you have for a 4 star Malaysian hotel. Reception staff are okay, not very attentive but they get the job done. The hotel's biggest factor has to be its location, based in the northern area of Georgetown, and very... More

This was our third holiday at this hotel. Internet reservation was easy and our check in was hassle free and fast, as was our checkout. The staff here are extremely helpful; housekeeping, restaurant, concierge and reception were all great. Breakfast variety was extensive.

I thought that the assistant manager (or a more experienced staff) was very helpful when I couldn't work the safety box in the room. His efforts off-set the clueless young ladies hired to serve the front desk. The cockroach in the bathroom didn't help and someone we know swore he'd seen mice. The room is big and some of them...

Its biggest plus point is that this full-service hotel is situated within walking distance to the heritage part of Georgetown. And it also has a 360 degree rooftop bar with a magnificent view to boost. You also get easy access to the fame E&O Hotel just across for it, should you feel the need to step back in time. There...

The hotel is old and run down. The entire premise and room has this musky stale odour. Parking is at another secluded building beside the hotel which is quite a walk away. Though it is linked and shaded, it is troublesome for solo traveler with extra luggage. It can also be dangerous for lady traveler like myself as i have... More

I would say that I've enjoyed at Rooftop Bar in this hotel.... At first, I was so dissapointed due to the parking area and also hotel building which is old.But,their services make me smile.The swimming pool is nice for adults and for kids i don't think so. Whereas overall its was a pleasant stay for my family.

Rooms are average and hotel is old fashioned and not reflecting the 4 stars. Rooftop bar very nice but the dj can only play computer music for brain dead. No flexibility what so ever. It drives you crazy and the dj is not interested in making any changes even though noone is dancing.

Stayed here for 4 days. Hotel a bit dated and rooms can smell a little musty at times but it's a great location and the rooftop bar is nice but expensive. Breakfast lacked a healthy option but there was plenty of it. Staff are good. Only issue is the wifi which was limited to 2 devices per room....why? Would stay... More
