bad mattress.

They seem not to know my booking even I show my printed booking copy and I've called 2 weeks earlier to double confirmed it. The mattress is very bad, I can feel the wire behind my back and it's not even and sagged. Should changed it long time ago. The pillow case and the bed linen is so smelly it stays on my shirt. I was there for penang bridge half marathon and needed place to rest before and after the race but can't get any of it.

Its just like a old apartment
Everything was below expectations. Beds were dirty, left over hairs around on and off the bed. Toilets are bare and empty. Not recommended to anyone.

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.

Farin Hotel

The hotel was nice from outside. Once we managed to find our room, it was noisy as the windows are broken and the air-cond was very old. Parking was a problem too as it shares with other hotels and food courts. No lift was provided. That was our 1st and last stay in this hotel.

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.
