"Our stay at The Royale Bintang Penang Hotel was a really enjoyable stay. The hotel is very conveniently located to anything and everything you would want to see. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant also provides a very comprehensive and well rounded morning buffet. The manager who greeted and seated us was especially pleasant and it was a nice welcome. I would also like to say that management is also very pleasant. I wanted to mention this because we ran into a nicely dressed gentlemen who must have been the general manager in the elevator and then outside the restaurant. I am sorry I didn't get his name, but he took time to explain some of the history of his hotel. His warm and friendly manner was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to have a memorable stay in Penang."

"Stayed: 2 Night, Sky Terrace Suite Thumbs up: Chris meeting us upon arrival at the lobby & gave us speedy check in. Ensuring us for a room as we were early. Went for lunch & chris met us at the hotel’s restaurant( makan kitchen) personally to pass the room cards to us ensuring everything is all ready. Shanaka: for always checking up on my partner & i. Asking about the quality of the food & remembered that we didnt finished our nasi goreng even asked if there was something wrong. Went the extra miles to find a florist near the hotel that i could arrange for flower delivery for my partner. Beautiful room, nice view. Warm staffs from start to end. Truly a DoubleTree standard. The best DoubleTree in Malaysia. Staffs from JB & KL should learn from Penang as staffs here are way more warmer & friendlier. "

"The process quite smooth as we no need to wait for host to come or any agent because all we do is self check in. Once you book the suite, the host will whatsapp all the details and instruction. We can access all the facilities at the apartment but got bit problem with the card as the lift cant really detect the card that I need to try for many time only can press the lift button. Quite lonely also maybe because of the apartment is new build one. Other than that all good. Will repeat once come to Penang again"

"This is a very good hotel. I love everything about it - its central location, the wonderful staff, the hardware (nice rooms), the non-smoking policy, the local food and taxi stand right outside the hotel, the free CAT bus you can catch at Komtar... Sunway Hotel has a non-smoking policy, though in reality there is 1 floor that allows smoking. The management could take the stand of disallowing smoking totally and make Sunway one of the very few hotels in Penang that does not allow indoor smoking. If guests are found to smoke in their rooms, the management should take strict action and insist that the guests abide by the non-smoking policy (or checkout), and verify that the misconduct is not repeated. Sunway has very nice hardware; the rooms are renovated and look new and pleasant. Coupled with a non-smoking policy and enforcement, it should appeal to contemporary travellers. The staff was very friendly, helpful and customer-oriented. I did not find any hotel employee who was lacking in service. For the other reviewers who rated them negatively, I think you need to remember that it takes two hands to clap; if you smile and ask them nicely, they will reciprocate in like manner. I thought their service was excellent. Extra info on the taxi fares - RM45 from the airport if you purchase a coupon from the airport limo counter outside the airport terminal; RM40 to the airport if you just take a taxi outside the hotel. I am a contented customer and will definitely stay at Sunway Hotel again for my next visit to Penang."

"We stayed for 6 days in Penang in the eastern oriental hotel. I will recommend everyone to choose for this hotel. It is worth more than the money that you pay for it. It is the only 6 star hotel in Penang and you notice it with everything. We arrived early in the morning and our room was already available for us. Check in is handled by the staf of the hotel all you have to do is sit relax and enjoy your drink. We booked the george town suite. It was very spacious especially the bathroom. Everything was with a colonial touch. Very good way to start your holliday in Penang as it is famous for its colonial heritage. If you stay at this hotel you really get the full experience. The service of the hotel is excellent. Rooms are cleaned twice a day. Fresh fruit is brought to your room every afternoon. There is a butler service availble 24/7. So whenever you need something just push the button. Staff speaks english very well. Always very polite and friendly. Our rate included breakfast, which was a joy every morning. There was so much choice in food. pancakes and waffles are freshly made according to your choice. Staying at the eastern oriental was a real value added to my vacation in Penang. It made the experience complete!"

"Had a wonderful stay here in the newest trendy hotel in Penang. First impression was splendid as we were greeted at the lobby and shown the way to the reception on level 11. Why was the reception located at such a high level, you ask? Why, to take our breaths away with the glorious seaview, of course. The pool area was huge and airy, almost wanted to sleep there and forget about the room! But what a room it was! Spacious, elegantly designed with comfort at the top of their priority. Water pressure was great, amenities well provided, perfect room temperature and a wide window to let us further appreciate the beauty of Penang. Staff were so helpful and friendly, always checking in to see that our needs were met, engaging in conversation, made us feel very welcomed! Breakfast spread was excellent, food still hot and freshly prepared despite our lateness in waking. Again, the F&B staff were so attentive and friendly. Couldn't have enjoyed myself more! Highly recommended!"
