    Most horrible Hotel Ever.”

    I recommend Agoda to remove this hotel from your list. 1. Staff - they think they own the hotel and treat customers so rudely. Especially Jayanthi. (She thinks she is hell of a great. train her to have some manners especially to older citizens! I called and told the staff at the counter i would like to park another car in. i clearly remember speaking to Zaza (She called me and questioning me on the parking ticket which i thing Jayanti has clarified. Like what the hell?? You cant even give your customer's free parking!! seriously???? 2. For a hotel that charges RM 100++ bucks a night, they cant even provide the basics. TOOTHBRUSH IS BLOODY NOT AVAILABLE! Even a 50 bucks Hotel rate can provide toothbrush. 3. Towels stink. I don't thing they even wash it properly. 4. The room smells of smoke and it was so dirty. 5. Do something about your staff and your hotel.

    Convenient hotel for tourists.”

    We were very happy with our recent holiday stay at the Hotel Continental. Everything was highly satisfactory with one annoying problem: there seems to be a significant fault with their key system - electronic access cards. EVERY Faye had problems with accessing our room. We would come back home, wait for the lift go upstairs only to find the key not working. Then we would wait for the lift, go downstairs to the reception, wait to have the key reprogrammed, wait for the lift again, go upstairs and voile - the key would work. Sometimes we would need to do this two or more times a day! We reported the problem every day. After four days of this inconvenience I got "fed-up" and demanded that something proper be done. They changed our room - more inconvenience ... Being objective and after dealing with our frustrations we can say that it is a nice hotel in a decent part of Penang. Close to lots of activity. We can recommend Love Lane and the Red Garden food court., both nearby ...

    Shame about the nightclub across the road”

    Thinking I had selected a nice hotel in a prime location at a good price, I was dissapointed to find our sea view came at an unforseen cost.... the Baby Vodka nightclub across the road that started up an incredibly loud show from 11pm to 3am and that could be felt as well as heard up on our 8th floor room. The bass beat was incessant and sleep was severely affected every night except when it stayed closed on Tuesday. Breakfast was available from 7am till 10.30 am but after 8.30am/9am popular items that ran out woudnt be replaced which left limited choices. Unfortunately getting breakfast earlier was affected by trying to catch up on missing sleep time. This hotel could be so much more if not for these major issues.

    Everything was ok. The breakfast, was nice, many choices. The location very good. Even, the hotel near to free city buses' bus stop. So for those who wanted to walk around by bus, it will be very easy. However, the hotel did not equip with soundproof features. So you will be able to hear noises from outside and from other rooms. The rest all are excellent.
