"Had a one night stay during my recent business trip. Everyone was saying that this is the best hotel they had ever stay of all the business trips we travelled around Malaysia. Back to this hotel, I would say the location is quite strategic and there is a shopping mall beside this hotel. This hotel is quite near to Penang bridge so if you opt to travel to the island for a visit is definitely not a major issue but provided you must have a car to travel around to try the local food. Hotel room is spacious, clean, modern, air-conditioner is very cooling, touch and go security to access to the rooms, free wifi provided, security box, breakfast was good and comparable to Cititel Penang and Bayview Hotel in the island. This hotel is a much better choice for both business or family vacation as compare to the opposite road Pearl View Hotel which is a nightmare for me."

"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."

"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"

"I paid RM157 for two nights. Booked via Agoda. Got a queen bed, Nice and clean toilet with water heater shower, Got a pool for adults and kids, Near 7eleven and restaurants. One thing I didn’t like was that my room smelled tobacco. Like previous occupants smoked in the room. I later complained and the staff came and spray. After a day, the smell was just gone. I’ll definitely book again on my next trip. "

"1.) This is not a hotel, is a personal properties that lent out like airbnb, so dont expect 24hr services like u get in hotel Good : Located in a very strategy place, near to gurney drive and george town. It might seen very far from penang hill on the map, but it is actually just 15 mins drive!! Room is super clean, it come with two room and one toilet. One room is attached with the toilet so it can consider is a shared toilet. Each room equip with fully functional air conditioner. Living room also got one air conditioner, super cold even in 3pm! The person in charge Uncle pang is a very nice person, surround the building got many parking but Uncle pang can reserve one parking for you too! Others : Microwave, fridge, Television with DVD player(No remote control for DVD player, so use ur phone instead. ) Bad : Since the toilet is a shared toilet, the toilet door should be can lock on both side, to protect privacy. The room attach to it cannot lock the door inside the room. The curtain of each room windows is drop down style, so it cant fully hide from outside, u can see through the room via the side of windows. Hence, privacy is not protected well enough. U can stick it to the wall by using tape though Anyways, I will still recommend to my friends but will recommend more if the windows curtain issue fix first!"

"St.Giles is tallest hotel in penang, view from our room is KOMTAR Building, and sea. My daughter love to stay in this hotel because they have free popcorn in reception. This hotel is very near to 1st avenue mall, and this mall connected to komtar and prangin mall, just walk turn right. If you turn left, we can get to GAMA supermarket, which have cheaper prices than others and also we can go to new lane food hawkers, macalister road zim sum which sell dim sum, atek durian...etc. Easy check in and check out. My daughter "

More about Penang

From its humble beginnings as a trading port, the city of Penang has evolved over the last two centuries into a tourist destination prized for its beaches, historic architecture, affordable accommodation and amazing food. Accommodation spans quaint hotels and inns in historic neighborhoods and luxury beach resorts. The latter are more popular, as most tourists prefer to venture into the colonial enclaves by day, returning to the beaches and resort restaurants and clubs before nightfall.

Penang's capital city, Georgetown, was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status for its fantastic historic neighborhoods. Highlights include Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and its boutique accommodation, Fort Cornwallis, and the Old City Hall. The hotels in Georgetown are well located for visiting temples and museums.

The newest and most extensive beach resorts are at Batu Ferringhi. It sits on the northern rim of the island and features an enviable spread of seafood restaurants and boutiques along the beach. So many Penang hotels are found here that competition drives down prices, especially in the off-season.

Penang International Airport is one of the best in Malaysia, and it operates flights to major cities across Southeast Asia and the South Pacific. Peak season begins right before Christmas and continues through Chinese New Year, which usually falls in late January or early February. Hotels in Penang charge the highest rates at this time, with the best deals are offered to early bookers.

Be sure to check out the interactive map of Penang for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
