Recommended Hotel to Stay

Location, View, Staff Hospitality
It was great choice to stay here in Holiday Inn Penang Hotel. The location is amazing. Not only located along the beach, it has also bus stop direct in front of the hotel entrance. It gives the super convenience experience to use public bus with the relatively cheap but can go to a lot of tourist attraction places. Oh and the HOHO bus stop also just in front of the hotel. A lot of cafe or cheap food around. I wish I could stay more days in there coz I only stayed for a night. It was definitely not enough!

Doesn't do the Holiday Inn name justice

Spacious room, beach access, good location
This hotel has been a personal and family favorite for decades. However, over the years, I've noticed the level of service has severely deteriorated. A hotel is not about nice rooms and good location. It is also about how customers are treated and how attentive staff are. A couple years ago, my friend was stung by jellyfish right at the beach of the hotel. No one actually came to ask if he was okay, and obviously no one bothered to ensure he was treated appropriately. We were left to our own and was just given directions to the nearest clinic. That certainly wasn't Holiday Inn hospitality. I came back again yesterday for a quick night's stay. Requested a queen bed at the reception and the person told it was a room with two queen beds. I thought that was interesting but found out they were two twin beds. Asked for a high floor, but got the third floor. Anyway, no apologies for not being able to cater to requests. They were just eager to attend to the next customer. Today at breakfast, we paid for it as it was not included in the room rates. Wasn't as good as I had expected for the price...and similar to what 2-star hotels would serve for free. The waiters didn't understand basic English...they swept the floor while people ate and cleared plates when we were eating without asking first. Is this a 4-star service standard? At the egg station, we stood there for a few minutes to place our order, but the cook ignored us. When an elderly white man approached, he got the cook's attention and got his order first. So caucasian foreigners are more important from locals? The price we paid for the stay would have given us three nights at the lower star hotel but better attentiveness and value elsewhere.

Clean, safe, and good location
It was all right. the room was advertised as beach wing which is misleading to members.It is not a beach view but a beach wing. Beach view has to be negotiated for an extra price and more headaches. Internet WiFi was bad.That is typical in Malaysia. Some receptionists spoke English with very heavy Chinese Accent and fake facial smiles, maybe the lack of sleep,. At least we used body language. All in All we were satisfied.

Refurbished, comfortable

Nice beach chairs, refurbished, and good satay!
Overall good experience. A busy place, popular for its water sports, so the beach is quite noisy. Cleanliness could be improved, a lot of dust in the room. The satay is very good. Recommended!
