This hotel was once a prince of a place unfortunately it has grown old and tired. I think there are probably better places to stay with a bit more to offer. This hotel is out of town which is the first down side, you need to catch taxi everywhere which adds to the cost.
I had requested a non smoking room, I got a room on 18th floor which was wonderful, however, it was a smoking floor. You get the picture.
The powerpoints were dodgy so someone had to come and install my international plug as it wouldnt fit into the powerpoint.
The clock didnt work, it is still sitting at 6.35 when I set it the first day I arrived.
There was no ice in the mini bar or for that matter anything else, even the water wasnt in the fridge.
I did use room service for ice and each time I received a different amount of ice.
On the last day there was no internet I phoned reception twice about
this lm still waiting.
The plus side it had a bath which I am very fond of. The breakfast was ok, nothing special however, they did make omlettes with ham in them. yum.
In all honesty I really didnt like Penang very much at all.
