The unit is in a newish complex at the marina. The marina has a few eating and shopping outlets and is a ten minute walk to the Tesco mall which has many.
The unit is clean and comfortable for two people. However, it is showing signs of wear and needs refurbishing; understand this is to happen soon. Also, be aware this is not a water view unit. There is an outdoor area surrounded by high walls.
The reception and departure arrangements were excellent.
We enjoyed our stay in Straits Quay and the apartment was perfect for our needs. We were on the third floor and below was a shopping mall, complete with restaurants and a small supermarket. The main swimming pool was great, lots of greenery and shade throughout the day. The gym was disappointing and needs more and better equipment if it is to match the quality of everything else. I would recommend staying in this apartment and Siang was helpful and responded to emails quickly. I would happily stay there again as the apartment is well equipped, has a good lay out, has a big balcony and big floor space.
Highly recommended! The host responded very quickly to my request to be his guest and provided very helpful and detailed information regarding trouristic spots in Penang. His place is in a very convenient location. Near to convenience store, restaurants and shops (all walking distance) or within SAME complex. The room is very nice and comfortable. I was able to use the washing machine to do my laundry. Definitively, I would come back to this beautiful apartment when I return. Thanks!
