I feel happy because near with many places. For example Queensbay, Gelugor, Airport, Food Stall and everything. Easy to travel from Farin Hotel to everywhere inside Penang Island.
Siti K. Solo travelers Malaysia, December 7, 2014
not happy with the staff on duty when check in.

nearest to the food station
I need to wait for staff since she not at her place.when im explained to the staff that im done my booking via agoda she said there was no room for me.i feel curious how i can done my booking and do payment when there is no room at the hotel.at the end,i got a room but it was not same as mention in agoda.im feel very bad with staff character and her word.this will be my first and last im staying at this hotel.staff in duty on that time should know how to give a good service to the customer.
Kim Y. Solo travelers Malaysia, November 15, 2014
Dirty and Uncomfortable

only the location is strategic
Toilet is super dirty and the overall cleanliness of the room and hotel is bad. Not worth the price paid and can get a much better place outthere around Penang to stay with the price paid.
Hang M. Groups Malaysia, November 9, 2014
Terrible and miserable
Terrible experience. Booked and paid already, but claimed no room during my arrival. Eventually provided a room and was shocked to see the room was in a messy, apparently no cleaning after guests have been checked out. very noisy and the room and corridor got unpleasant smell. Only one bathroom and a toilet for all users in same corridor. Will never ever come back to this kind of hotel anymore.

Siew O. Groups Malaysia, May 10, 2014
horrible stay in penang

cannot think of anything positive to say about this hotel - definitely will not be booking into this again!
we were late in checking in - had called up earlier to notify of late arrival. upon checking in, was given the keys to the rooms - walk up 3 flight of stairs then turned through 2 doors - the rooms were clustered to maximize space - no attached bathroom, and door locks looked flimsy. air conditioning not really working well. didn't want to complain as that means a 3 flights of stairs to negotiate! no hotel food was available so impossible to comment!
Su H. Couples Malaysia, May 9, 2014
friendly and attentive staffs

accessable location, opposite to Sungai Nibong bus terminal, can take bus 102 to airport with MYR2.00
Poor sound-proof. Some of the guest return late night and made a big noise,which had wake me up in the mid night.But this really depends on who are the guest stay in the hotel.
