        Petite, Small, Clean and Beautiful

        this is my first time go to penang. i found hotel sentral georgetown is a superb hotel. the facilities i had was really beyond the price that i paid. though petite, the room is truly clean and neat. the wifi is super fast. the location of the hotel itself is exactly in the heart of the city (3 minutes step to komtar - where we can catch all buses easily). you can also easily reach to some of the malls near the hotel. moreover if you are a true foodies, then it's just a few minutes walk to the street hawkers. i will definitely stay at hotel sentral georgetown next time i visit penang. overall, i am contented with the service of this hotel.

        Clean, comfortable and good location.

        I did enjoy my stay and it's value for money ( I mean for hotels, of course I am not comparing it with hostels ~ that will be another story as there are quite a number of good hostels in Penang ). The location was fantastic and the most important thing was the room and bed were clean and free of beg bugs. The Astro channels provided were good companions before bedtime. Just a few minute walking distance to Komtar ( the Rapid town bus station is there ). Ps: there is a safe ( very useful ), they even provided a purifier ( ionizer ) for smoking room - for one hour and longer if nobody asking for it. The male staff standing ( both inside and outside ) the entrance were very helpful and nice. The female staff at the counter were polite and always tried their best to fulfill my request. Hotel Sentral Georgetown is worth-staying if beautiful view is not your priority.

        Great location”

        Strategic location, free wi-fi

        Strategically located close to the corner of Lorong Kinta and Jalan Macalister, the hotel is located within walking distance from some of the attractions located along Jalan Macalister, e.g. Sun Yat Sen Centre. However, parking is rather inconvenient as there are limited bays available. Clean but small rooms, but considering the price, I think Hotel Sentral Georgetown is a better choice when compared with some older hotels within the vacinity, where the rates are higher but the condition of the rooms are far worse.

Room was great designed & wonderful cleaniness as well which is above my expectation. Definitely will return to stay in this hotel whenever there's room available for my next Penang trip. Strongly recommended to all of you who travels up to Penang. There's tons of food nearby which is walking distance as well Komtar is just a stone's throw away only.

        Hotel Sentral is Centrally Located!”

        Location, convenience, value

        The best thing about the Hotel Sentral has to be its location. It is within five minutes of the KOMTAR bus terminal where for about the 3MYR approximately 1USD you can take the public bus to most attractions in Penang. Also within three to five minutes from the hotel you can find plenty of food stalls serving up delicious Indian and Chinese street foods. Near the hotel you can find quite a few KTV bars, as well as other bars and seafood restaurants. There were also no less than 3 malls, with a cinema and wide variety of restaurants within 5-10 minutes walking distance. You should definitely opt for breakfast. It is a nice buffet spread, with a variety of choices: both Western and Asian, hot and cold food. The room was cleaned daily, good toiletries were provided as well as water bottles, and the staff was accommodating. They supplied us with adapters, and answered as many of our questions as possible. I would recommend getting a map of Penang before arriving at the hotel--they seemed to be out of it everyday we were there. Hot commodity I suppose? In any event, I would certainly recommend staying here. You could take the bus to Upper Penang for some Western nightlife spots like Soho Freehouse and Slippery Senoritas. I suppose one could possibly walk there within 15-20 minutes, however just be aware with Western spots come Western prices.

        Modern furnishings, Clean and well maintained accommodation

        This was our third stay at Sentral Georgetown. It is on a quiet street with easy access to transport and main through roads. The rooms we have used were clean, tidy and well equipped - that's the best thing about a hotel that has been newly refurbished and brought up to date. I need quiet to be able to sleep, and this hotel does not suffer from excessive street, vehicle or other noise. This time we had breakfast. It was a little chaotic on the first day, but much improved on the second - because more staff were available to clear tables and restock. The food was adequate and tasty. Sentral is certainly a good value choice for a short stay in Georgetown.

        This was our second time at Sentral, Georgetown. It's good to stay at a newly reburbished hotel and not be get annoyed at things being rundown and untidy. We had a Deluxe room first stay, and it's worth taking the upgrade. The Superior had the same level of equipment this time, but the room was smaller, but no less comfortable. It was good to see that they are maintaining the level of quality throughout. Liked the tea/coffee making facility and water each day. Clean towels and toiletries provided. Good adjustable shower. We like the location as it is walking distance to main events in Georgetown and has some good hawker centres in the roads nearby. We will stay again, mainly because it represents good value for money and the staff are efficient.

The staff are friendly & helpful. It is about 10 mins walk to 3 large shopping centre the newest is 1st Avenue. But do shop at Pangin next to it as the prices are more locallised. No regrets if you pick this hotel with the delux room & want to enjoy Penang, its cultire & most of all its food like Penang laksa, Char Kway Teow, Poh Piah etc.

        Good location for shopping and sightseeing”

        Newly refurbished - with high quality interior design

        as regular visitors to penang, we try out different hotels and locations to get a feel for the place. sentral was a good experience and great value for money with their opening offers. the staff were excellent and thoughtful, bearing in mind it must be stressful opening a hotel and getting it functioning smoothly. they are succeeding well. it has a good reception area leading to a cafe which is welcoming and nicely organized. so many penang hotels are "tired" so it was good to have a modern room with nice furnishings and linens. the way the bed was made was the best i have ever experienced in a hotel!

        Good Location & Clean”

        We like the location of the hotel its in the city although the room is quite small but for couple its alright. The room is also clean and neat.

        We enjoyed our stayed in Hotel Sentral, Penang. Beside, the strategic location in Georgetown, Penang. the employees of the hotel are friendly and helpful too. The room is clean and comfortable for couples. We just want the hotel to improve on the breakfast and the hotel lobby which is quite small and cramp.

        Nice hotel”

        newly renovated

        the hotel sentral georgetown is located at a very strategic location. it's directly in the heart of town. walking distance to komtar mall which is the tallest building in penang. finding food was easy over there. the room is very nice and clean. the place is completely newly renovated. this hotel is cheap because of the location and condition. never tried to hotel food as we prefer to taste the local delicacy where penang is famous for its hawker food.
