“Good location ; nothing much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

I been to Naza Hotel Penang in Feb 2013, which I booked through a Portel where I used to stay 2 nights. The prime attraction of this resort as its so closest to the sea. Once can step in to the beach from the restaurant area and pool. View from the room window is amazing and scenic. The adjacent beach is not suggestable for swimming as no soft sand as well as the threat of Jelly fish. Bed, Room space and facilities are quite good but one may feel that it could be better maintained as I saw ma flesh was not working well. Breakfast was quite good and worthy. Pool is not maintained well and was dirty, so my intention to use the pool was not filled. Price is moderate and I say It would not spoil your money or a comfort overnight stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the sea side is so good.

Very disappointing. Staff were unhelpful and unfriendly. Took half an hour to get a taxi every time we asked front desk to book a car, even when we called down in advance. Rooms were dirty - safe did not lock, balcony door did not lock properly, aircon did not reach the bedrooms, shower had hair on floor, mould on tiles, floor coming off in areas, breakfast was very basic and not good quality. This hotel is not in a good location- pick either Georgetown (for shopping and sightseeing) or Batu ferrighi (for the beach). One staff member whom we'd never met kept calling our room and visiting our room asking us to go out for drinks with them. Very unprofessional and intrusive. Do not stay here!

Stayed here for four nights in June to be close to the top end of Penang without the tourists. The room had a fantastic view and appeared to have been partially renovated. You have to wonder why there were new basins and yet the shower doors were old and broken? We discovered that the shower base leaked into the rest of the bathroom (thankfully it wasn't the toilet leaking). We felt uncomfortable swimming in the pool as it was too close to the throngs of people yet with the Chinese Swimming Club across the road there was no need to put on a show for the diners and smokers poolside. Speaking of smoking, this hotel must be a smoking only establishment. The stench that billows out at you when getting out of the lift on your floor (mine was 6) knocks you for a six. Late at night it somehow creeps into the bathroom to pounce on you when you get up. Apart from the downsides, there are bonuses to stating here. Across the road is one of the best hawker areas in Penang. I know this because I ate at all of them, even Gurney Drive isn't that crash hot. The best Char Kway Teow can be found here along with a tasty and popular chicken hot pot stall. For beer, hike it to Tescos. Lastly, the breakfast buffet is pretty good and changes daily with - what I suspect - may be some of the previous nights dinner spread. Mashed potato and rice pudding is an interesting morning combination. The views, the price, the location.

We managed to book a room here just before the school holidays, we paid $30 a night (without breakfast). However as soon as the holidays started the prices went up to a ridiculous $175 on Agoda!!!!!!!! Who are they kidding!! Not worth more than $30 ok.
The room was clean and had everything we needed (fridge, tv etc) the balcony had great views but too hot to stand on when the air con is on!! The pool is lovely when it's not holiday season!! Nice stretch of beach to walk along. There is nowhere close to eat in the daytime, we walked 20 minutes to a local tesco (can't remember the name of the mall) they have sakae sushi and lots of good eateries. In the evening the food hall over the road from the hotel is open, here they have a lot of choices very cheap.
Staff are not the brightest, service is slowish and the hotel could do with a small refurb!!

Went to this hotel during non peak session for 4days 3night.

Small carpark at the basement. Can fit about 20+ cars. It will definitely be hard for you to get a carpark during peak session unless you lucky. The worst park is that they dont have a lift which enable you to go from carpark to your room. You have to the staircase to the lobby then only you can go to your room from the lobby lift.

The room is pretty small but it was clean. No hairdryer provided. The room is facing the sea so you can get nice view.

Dont eat at the restaurant which next to the hotel....terrible

This hotel is basic. The towels is really old and not in a good condition. My room's aircon did not work. The overall impression of my room was old and dirty. The location not to bad, but I would not stay here again
