Good reception and concierge, very bad housekeping
This hotel had changed several management and it showed. Leaky hoses were taken care of but cockroaches report they could only say sorry. We had got rid of 2 small cockroaches and 1 big one. The housekeeper challenged us when we asked why he only replace 2 towels instead of the original 4, saying he could not found the two, until I showed him where we hang it, inside their open shelves. They had a list of charge-able hand and face towels but only provided the bath towels until we asked them to provide it. We gave half-way mark because the lobby staff including the concierge, security and the hotel's drivers are professional - worthy to mention: Rizal, the blue taxi driver. They gave us a room with sweeping view of Penang beach. Location is excellent for food, food courts located within 10 steps front and 10 steps back from the hotel, plus various eateries in Nagora square just behind the hotel. 15 min walk to Komtar and 10 min walk to the famous Ghee Hiang.

Bad working Bathroom
Bathroom pipes were not working, noise coming out when we on taps. The bathroom made it difficult for us to have a comfortable shower. The TV so small for such a big room.

Good hotel
We booked a superior room with breakfast for our 3D2N trip.It's our 2nd stay here, we like this hotel for its location, nice breakfast buffet (especially the nasi lemak, muffins and cakes), polite counter staff, and free shuttle service to Gurney Drive is a huge plus for us. There is a taxi counter at the hotel entrance, service is good and price is quite ok. From hotel to airport is RM50. From hotel to Kek Lok Si carpark area is RM30. We went to Gurney Drive using the free shuttle service by the hotel, and then coming back after shopping and dinner, our taxi fare is RM15. Bus no. 201 or 502 can bring us from Kek Lok Si (foot of hill) to Komtar, the fare is RM2 per pax. Bus no.10 can bring us from Komtar to the bus stop right in front of the hotel, bus fare is RM1.40 per pax. We are very satisfied and will be back again if the price remains good. Thank you, Hotel Royal Penang!
