Just okay.

Location, staff, easy access.
It was just okay. Staff is very friendly and accommodating but the room itself lack comfort. The pillows were not nice, the walls are so thin you can hear the room next door, and the drainage system in the bathroom makes loud noises when the room upstairs is flushing their toilet. Would not be back.

Best budget hotel!

Good quality service, Clean and Comfortable
So hotel is the best budget hotel. I will rate this hotel 4.5 out of 5. It is clean and comfortable. The staffs are friendly, volunteer to guide us the way to several famous places. Furthermore the services are good. They quickly respond to the customer needs. I'll consider this as my priority if I go to Penang next time.

Clean contemporary hotel with excellent service

service, clean, quiet
We stayed in a triple room as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 young kids). the room was nice and clean, came with an air ionizer (once you have it you miss it in many other hotels) and free hot/cold drinking water in the hallway. The room for 4 is a bit on the small side but for the price it's justified. The staff are excellent and i have to give them the best rating for that. They went out of their way to help us out with some mail forwarding, kept us in the loop with the situation and even carried the cost of the postage. Beside that they are trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible and help out with any questions about food or touristy things etc.. the hotel is a bit away from the heritage quarter (~1km/~15min walk to the komtar building where the free hop on/off buses stop), but therefore in a quiet area. some food options are around the corner including the play cafe, which the kids liked a lot.

Excellent Stay in So Hotel Penang!

extremely helpful hotel staff / convenience location / pillow selection
It was a wonderful stay in So Hotel, the hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly, it feels like home, I am also impressed with their 3 pillow selections. Hotel is located in town center with 10-15 minutes walk to Komtar, there's tons of local resturants nearby including 2 famous Durian stall. No doubt this is the best hotel experience I have with the incredible price. Strongly recommended and I will definitely stay there again when I travel to Penang.
