Have been to Penang 16 times over 30 years and still enjoy visiting family and to eat!!! Stayed two nights at Cititel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Agoda doesn't ask if you want smoking or non smoking so no standard non smoking rooms available a quick referral to the supervisor and a complimentary upgrade was offered to the 12th floor overlooking the bay and E and O. Just right!! thank you.
That room was spacious, clean, had good amenities and not "tired".
Breakfast was a substantial buffet to suit any taste and was fresh and inviting.
For clothes washing support the recovering addictions center in the Catholic Church grounds next door and have a cuppa as well.
For a great, inexpensive foot reflexology and or body massage give the Blind Association a try. Exit Cititel, Turn right go approx 200m up the street cross the road at the 7/11 store and it's upstairs. Less than A $25. Basic comforts but supports those willing to support themselves.
