small, compact, comfortable, value for money

comfortable rooms and friendly staff
It looks like a new hotel. We stayed in a triple room, quite small but comfortable. You get to choose your pillow. And it's really comfortable. Small bathroom, the basin is not inside the bathroom, but in the room itself. Cups are provided but no teaspoon though. We called and requested for teaspoon but they said they do not have one. Staff are friendly, they take the initiative to introduce places of interest and famous food...( all long queues though), and they asked if we need a hair dryer (seeing my long hair, maybe) This hotel will be a great choice if u only sleep and go, Or, if u are going to spend most of your day outside. Given the price, it's quite good!

Nosiy & Disturb

1. Staff very friendly and helpful, 2. Have Parking lot, 3. Strategic location
I have bad experience during my stay at So Hotel.. 1. I requested a non-smoking area but beside of room was smoking area come with few units air cond compressor and lighting switch on. Imagine the noisy, lighting and people talking & laughing at smoking area?? It's really disturb me whole night. 2. The room next to smoking area should improve else reserve for those prefer smoking room.

Best hotel in penang

Location,service, hospitality
I stayed 2 days in this hotel, price was cheap, staff so friendly, just parking limited but it is situated in a very good location for all my works to be done will be staying this hotel every month when i come to penang island. When i was checking out and left the hotel the hotel staff by the name of Mr Leow xalled me saying that my business card book is in my room and said to bring to me by his motorbike. Im so appreciated of what he had done. And they provide free carwash. Nicest service ever provided.
