“Alternative when travelling north”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Had stayed here for few times already, the last time was last march and it was under renovation. Eventhough, the breakfast was good. We opt to stay here after a hectic day in the island or as a pit stop after travelling far north. And yes, they provide extra bed!

Stayed March 2013, traveled with family

I was in the area for work and stayed here for one night. The whole lobby/reception area was under construction so everything was boarded up. They moved the reception area to the 2nd floor. The staff was very friendly and my room (club) was nice. Breakfast was really great.

Usually when I travel, I stay at the Island, this time I was visiting for short visit and had meetings lined up immedaitely after I land, had to chose this hotel in mainland.

Offcourse the booking voucher indicated the construction related information so was expecting the same. Booked a limo through them and the person was waiting near the baggage belt itself with name card.

I guess I met the Hotel Manager at the under construction lobby and he apologised for inconvenience. The check in was swift. Room was refurbished and new but could aready see peeled formaica on furniture and chipped tiles in bathroom, breakfast was just ok, no live counter (may be because makeshift breakfast area is created in a meeting hall), check out was quick too. Location is the key for this hotel, near by shopping mall and market area provides quick access to everything.

Good - Location, Room and Bathroom Space. They are apologizing for inconveneince and offer some basic complimentary stuff for the same

Can be better - Breakfast and tarrif

Not staisfied- Quality of material used to furnish the room, there were two lifts but seemed slow

Out of all room I guess only 9 of them were occupied. Overall look and feel as well as cleanliness is nice but I guess there are much better options available on island side for same rate.

Room Tip: Go for front side rooms, no specific view but you may see part of Penang Bridge

well the hotel is newly furbished and the lobby is a mess in construction and scary lifts....well rooms are presentable but sadly the deluxe, premier rooms and club rooms are of same design and has no difference except for rates.

deluxe rooms has no free mini bar provided.

premier rooms has mini bar free.

club rooms has mini bar, and evening cocktails free on the club floor and no other club floor access.

basically the rates you pay and for the services you get are ridiculous.

the premier rooms has no club floor access - weird for premier rooms rates.

the club floor serves only cocktails - unlike other hotel dont think of getting 24 hour access or free flow drinks etc for what you pay 400 +++

so for the rates you pay and the facilities you get...ixora or pearl international or the garden hotel is a better choice unless you have a function or spend time at sunway carnival...

Nice new clean rooms but there is nothing special for rooms...no tubs for rates you pay...smilar room size for deluxe and premier rooms...

and overall except free wifi its disappointing for a sunway hotel brand name

consideration to services should be consider for rates given...

yes there is no cartoon network or fox movies...limited astro and the dinosaur vision four with old school programs.

the food is nice but order a menu for lunch and you would like it and order the same thing for dinner and what you get is not like what was served earlier....totally inconsistent...

Room Tip: just get the deluxe rooms cos for premier rooms the only thing you pay for is 4 cans of drinks and a...

Even though there was construction going on at the hotel (Updating Lobby plus other areas), the hotel was very nice. Rooms were very nice, clean. My only issue was the bed was a little to hard for me, other that that is was great. The staff was, always making sure everything was okay. Breakfast had a large variety of choices, which was top notch. I did dine in one night ans the food came up hot and as ordered. I actually stayed for two week, but left for one weekend. Hotel kept my bag for me which was great, and when I came back, there was an issue getting into the room with the key card and the staff was all over this. They tried a second set of key card, which did not work and the next time they came up, it was with a new set of key cards to a different room. They went way out of the way to make sure I was happy.

Great hotel in a very good location. Friendly staff, rooms spacious well furnished, newly decorated and exceptionally clean. Good breakfast selection. Plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance. Would definitely stay there again.
