We recently stayed at Cititel for the third straight summer, even booked the same standard room! There must be a reason: very professionally-run business, from the front desk to porters to housekeeping, and all for an affordable price. New this year were the flat screens TVs, new furniture and carpeting, and a little upkeep to the bathroom. Good job Tony and crew! And another little tip: booking directly from Cititel's website seems to get you a better deal than Agoda or others.
And there are always new things to explore and discover in Penang. This year we visited the clan jetties and my son and I took a tour of the old cemetery around the corner from the hotel. We also took the cheap ride to the top of Komtar--all worthwhile endeavors! Penang is one of our favorite destinations in Malaysia, and Cititel plays a key role in enjoying these visits.
