Heliconia is in an ideal location, down the street is the New Lane hawker stalls which I visited practically every night for dinner, there's a laundry service a couple of doors down, a great Thai massage place across the street, and Komtar (where you can take buses everywhere on the island) is a few blocks away. The hotel itself is modern and clean, rooms are small but as long as you don't have too much luggage, is fine. Amenities are sparse, and one tip that was very helpful from another Tripadvisor reviewer was to bring your own hairdryer, which I did since the hotel room doesn't offer it. I was lucky that my room was on the top floor (5th) and had a nice view of Komtar, so it was a comfortable stay. And the 2 bottles of water a day were very much appreciated. Staff are ok, what I didn't realize though that would've been helpful for them to state upfront was that if you wanted your room cleaned, you need to hang the sign on your doorknob. Normally, hotels only ask you to hang the sign if you DON'T want to be disturbed, but in this case, you need to communicate either way. I learned this the hard way as I would return later in the afternoon to see that my room wasn't cleaned. Also, there are flyers that are in the hotel lobby for a "budget sightseeing tour". Seemed like a good deal and I signed up several days in advance for a pickup at 8:45 am. The tour guide didn't call until an hour before to say that due to lack of participants, they were cancelling the tour and because I was at breakfast, I didn't get the message and the hotel staff didn't leave me a note. I had to wait in the lobby and when I asked the hotel clerk to check for me, that was when I got the message that the tour was cancelled. Also, there's a 100 ringgit deposit that you need to provide, which you get back when you check out after they've checked the room. All in all, was a good stay, and I wouldn't mind staying there again, if not just for the location.

Dear NYPanda888, Greetings from Heliconia Hotel Penang! We would like to thank you for your feedback during your stay. We would also like to apologize on the miscommunication with regards to the room cleaning card. The hotel does provide hairdryers however it is on request basis, also for extra amenities. I have also shared your observations with the rest of the team and rest assured that we have action towards the issue. We are glad and hoping to welcome you back in the future. Best regards, Malcom Ignatius

We stayed here for four nights, and found the hotel to be modern, clean and perfect for our needs. The staff are friendly, professional and helpful and spoke very good English. Also, as the hotel is located in a small laneway off Jalan Macalister, it wasn't very loud at night. The location is perfect for exploring the main areas and sights of Penang. You are in walking distance to Chinatown, Little India and the Jetty area and the Komtar (which is about 10 minutes walk away) has buses that can take you to almost every corner of Penang. There are also many great food places around but our favorite was the dim sum place just next to the hotel's street and you will always find it jam packed with locals from when it opens in the early morning to when it closes at 2pm. Also, there is a great and cheap dry cleaners right next to the hotel where you can have your clothes washed and dried within 24 hours at very cheap prices. Highly recommend this hotel!
