              I went to Penang for 3 days. Stayed in EST on the first night & come back later on the 3rd day”

              Its very clean and comfortable. You would be shock what EST offer for that price. We stayed in EST on our 1st night in Penang and later check out to a much pricey hotel in Georgetown. But got shocked seeing how horror that hotel was. We were supposed to stay there for the rest of our trip. But cancelled it and go back to EST. Even if EST is quite far from Georgetown. It is still recommended. Definitely value for money. The staff even permitted us to left our stuff there upon check out before our flight that night. I would definitely choose EST again.

              Receptionist was very nice and helpful and the hotel was nicely decorated. Rooms were very clean, spacious. The beds were also very comfortable too. They have about 3 floors and no elavators so keeps that in mind if you have heavy luggage. The location is good as it's near to the airport but a little far from Georgetown, not a big deal if you have a car or use Uber/Grab. Overall, a good budget hotel that is definitely worth the price. One of the budget hotels I'd gladly come back to stay whenever I'm in Penang for a short trip.

              Booked this hotel to drop by Bayan Lepas for a quick event. Best decision as it was a Friday and we got to the hotel less than 10 minutes from the airport. Hotel was clean and met the basic needs. Rooms were clean and the hotel deco was nice.Staff accommodated to our request for additional iron and ironing board. Overall, it will be a great choice if you need to stay nearby the airport.

              We were quite surprised when we got here. For a budget hotel, everything about EST was classy. Check in and check out were a breeze, loved the decor, room was perfectly clean and comfortable. Our one issue was that the heater was broken, but because we didn’t mind a cold shower, we didn’t bother asking for another room. Overall, I’d definitely come back if I needed a place for an overnight stay. Thanks!

              My flight arrived at 11:00 pm, so I booked Hotel EST near Penang Airport and walked there ( about 20 min.). It was unsafe walking in traffic, so I don't recommend this. Better to pay double for a taxi at midnight. Regular taxi fare to Georgetown is about RM 45. If you are leaving Penang on an early morning flight, it might make sense to stay in this location. It's cheap, clean and friendly reception.

              close to airport, nice staff, fast service

              The hotel is ideal if you need to be at the airport first thing in the morning. This is the reason why we checked-in the hotel, although our stay in Penang was really in Georgetown. We didn't want the hassle of unreliable public transportation from Georgetown to make it to the first morning flight the next day. The hotel was great; my only qualm was there is a smell of urine from the bathroom ... I think it is because we were on the first floor and the pipes are closest to the sewer? I don't know. Otherwise, the room and everything else is clean and comfortable. Staff is great.

              We landed gone midnight and EST was still open and happy to receive us. It’s clean, convenient, and such value for money.

              we booked at Hotel EST as we only spent one short night in Penang before getting up at 4am to take a flight. Clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed, good air con, no window but quiet and didn't really need window apart when a thai man knocked at our door around 2am, we got a bit scared and wish we had a window, in case of. Anyway the hotel was fine for what we needed, just wish we didn't get waken up at 2am

              This hotel just near to Airport if there is emergency unfortunately stupid Malaysia Airlines only notified there is a flight change time from 3:25pm to 5:25pm for local domestic flight flow from PEN to KUL (MH1149). We all passages stranded after check-in/ boarding 2:25pm called as per instructed. This hotel is very flexible to accommodates your need with a charges unfortunately stupid people has caused stupid error. I would take my sweet time to enjoy the local malay foods along the EST Hotel comparing useless @ the Penang International Airport by name to cater all the reschedules of other flight’s at the same time for example AirAsia, Firefly (MAS), & Malindo. My suggestion’s don’t visits Penang because Penang never will be ready for tourist.

              Affordable stay”

              The room was super value for money with all the basic facilities. However, the air con in our room kept on auto closed off every 1 hour. It is close to the airport and Queensbay mall but very far away from Georgetown, but this was what we wanted as it is near to the penang marathon starting area. Overall, everything is good except maybe we should have ask the staff to help with the air con problem which we didn't do.

              Location, price, quietness

              Walking towards the hotel, after a very short bus ride from the airport (RM1.40 only), I saw and heard planes taking off and was terrified about getting any sleep in there. Upon entering the hotel, I was once again worried because it looked rather small even from the inside. But once I made my way to the rather spacious room, with relatively spacious bathrooms, I didn't hear a single plane or a single child's scream for the next 3 days. It was amazing, clean and the staff were very pleasant, changing the towels when we requested and bringing us buns to eat, everyday. There are non-tourist trap eateries nearby, frequented only by locals, which are very cheap and authentic, which the staff will gladly recommend and direct you to.
