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... More

Nice food for breakfast, strategic location to many local attractions, just that, busy traffic because of that and understandably limited parking spot for guest. 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... More

This hotel is near Komtar. You can go everywhere very easily as Komtar is also the bus terminal. Staff is very helpful and the room is clean. 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... More

This place is well located near the Komtar shopping centre, near a night food street and close enough to the heritage area such as Campbell St and the Armenian area The staff are professional and friendly especially Mr Yeo who send me a map in advance. The rooms are a little small (think Hong Kong style) but have everything you... More

The location is absolutely good for FOOD in George Town. The staff are professional. The rooms are well-prepared & they explained in details on regulations. Love their buffet-like breakfast. They serve very good food diverse from western to asian ones. There's a small roof-top garden where you could sunbath.

The hotel's location is fantastic, just a stone's throw away from KOMTAR and surrounded by many night food stalls. It's a short walk to attractions in Georgetown. The city free shuttle stops are just around the hotel too. The staff is friendly, especially one gentleman who looks like in his 50's. He gave me many tips on going around penang,... More
