Apollo Inn's location near Komtar bus terminal (5 minutes away) makes it easy to take a bus to practically anywhere on Penang island. The free CAT bus shuttle which takes visitors to major attractions in Georgetown has stops near the hotel. It's within walking distance to Chinatown, Little India, Armenian Street, Chowrasta market... Lots of eateries selling delicious Penang food...

However, there is no water supply at the roof top, where guest have to go back to their rooms or lobby for hand wash after eating. Overall review is good since many local attractions can be...

Room is a little smaller than I though but that's not a problem. And rooftop of the hotel is cool, you can see beautiful view over there and can bring beer to chill...
