Josco T. Business travelers Singapore, August 9, 2013
Disappointing for a Shangri La's Property

The location of the property is very ideal and public transport is very convenient
actually stayed from 07-09 Aug 2013. 07-08: checked in based on walk-in BAR rate, and was informed 08-09's full house so i needed to book myself elsewhere. 08-09: booked through agoda.com the moment i checked on 07 aug, for 08-09/08. (quite absurd right?) Planned to celebrate a surprise birthday on the 08/08, and front office staff extended a complimentary cake delivery upon day 02 check in request. BUT this did not happened at all, false promise; I even called Duty Manager the very night to double check on the status and he assured me it was done, but i was simply tired of arguing for a free cake and hint of the delivery that was not done was not heard. My point is that, if such simple case of goodwill action actually warrant such service lapse. The management needs to look into it's SOP! Little things like this can win your guest's heart, but this little things can also cause your legendary image to be washed down the drain by your complanced workers. I just don't wish to add on with the quality of food served at your Japanese restaurant during the final night. I seek the relevant party to contact me directly for more clarification and queries, else this is defintiely a NO- go again should i ever return.

Hotel is well located, may be the best location

Shopping, Eating, Busineess
The hotel is well located behind the central of Georgetown-Komtar Tower. You can go to famous shopping mall and eating areas in several minutes. The hotel is clean and well managed, but the room and facilities (especially the TV) should be upgraded since they are relative old compared to the other traders hotel no matter in Hong Kong or Singapore or even KL of Malasiya.

I would definitely recommend.

Close to markets. And jetty
Really clean, fast service. I enjoyed my stay a lot. Great value for money. Once you walk into the hotel from outside Penang, you feel like you walked into another world.

Comfortable stay but could be better.

Central location, many eateries nearby n large room.
I would consider it a satisfactory stay. Some feedback: 1) Thefront desk staff wanted RM 400 deposit even though I had paid for the stay via Agoda. When I refused, they went about to empty the mini bar though I am not likely to use it anyway. But, I found this action a let down for a so-call 4 star hotel. 2) Also, time to upgrade the rooms - looked old and is one hotel that is still using a Huge CRT TV when everybody else has upgraded to flat screen LCD or LED TVs. 3) Room wasn't cleaned as at 2.30 pm on my 2nd day - they called up asking whether I wanted the room clean? Isn't a clean room a basic expectation.

Convenient hotel

Convenient, clean and good price
Good, no fuss n straight forward place. Value for money. A good central base to begin your day thought if shopping is your thing, worth checking out Gurney plaza area but note that that place is often congested.

Amazing Staff

Staff proximity to shops dining
This is a hotel that I shall definitely return to mainly for the wonderful friendliness of the staff. Also the proximity to shops makes it very nice for the guests who like to shop and drop back to the hotel to offload parcels before returning to shop some more. The dining room had a fabulous buffet and Vic introduced us to some amazing Malaysian dishes

Comfortable, trouble free

Friendly service, good breakfast spread, comfortable rooms
Stayed for only 1 night, hotel was slightly further from Gurney area than I expected. Staff were friendly and rooms reasonably clean and comfortable, although still using old boxy TV sets. Overall the hotel is on the edge of getting tired and needing a refresh.
