Great place and excellent service ”
Pros: The room prices are affordable and the breakfast buffet is one of the best I’ve ever had in a hotel. The hotel is right in the middle of Georgetown and that makes it easy to walk to a lot of museums, eateries, catch the bus and see the sea. The view from my hotel room was magnificent. I could stand by the window all day(Room 903) Izzy from the hotel’s restaurant should receive an award for the ‘Best Customer Service Representative’. She smiles immediately you enter the restaurant and was of great help in telling us of places of interest in Pinang. Hotel room was very neat and well cleaned always. If I go to Pinang again I’m surely going back to HOTEL MALAYSIA 😀 Cons: The room is not sound proof so noise from the street or other rooms can be heard slightly
best cheap hotel with very good location”
value for money...cheap hotel with very best location.. it is located in penang road. near kheng pin cafe (the famous loh bak in penang). many shops that sell clothes and t shirt.. just with walking distance..it is more cheaper than buying in the mall.. many food stalls. Garden food court is a few steps away (where the famous kimpo duck rice is located ).. maybe the building is a little bit old (the others have the newer and better appearance than this one.. but of course they are more costly).. almost every grab or uber driver know where it is.. this hotel is near to all of point interests in penang (3-6rm by uber). i book family room for 4persons..with breakfast..the food is almost the same for 3days.. but looking at the price it is good lahh.. very reasonable.. and the staff is very helpful.. they changed the bed sheet and towel everyday..so happy to stay in this hotel for 3nights
Great location & very comfortable.”
I picked Hotel Malaysia mainly for its location close to the historical Georgetown center, but also for a place to relax. I got both staying here. I got a great sleeping, waking up to views over the coast & Penang Hills & all the places I wished to visit & explore were only a few minutes walk away. The room was large, plenty of hot water & reasonably quiet as it is in the heart of the bar & nightclub area. I will definately stay here again.
We have such a good time staying here. ACond working fine. Got seaview as I requested. Bathtub awesome, just little problem with hot shower which they fix within few hours. Breakfast good, restaurant view awesome! Great friendly staff especially housekeeping crew. Location good, many good food just steps away. Room spacious. Easy check in/out. Parking for guest available at the hotel. There's nothing to complain. 3rd time staying here & will still choose Hotel Malaysia whenever we go to Penang.
Really close to good food”
Hotel Malaysia was pretty good. maybe a little expensive for what you get, a very average hotel. They do have breakfast which is mostly noodle and rice dishes, but also some eggs and toast so a little bit for everyone. They served pancakes once while we were there and they should do that every day because that was the best part of any of our breakfasts. I would definitely stay here again though simply for the location. It was a 2 minute walk from the best food area in Penang, The Red Garden Food Paradise. There is all the different types of food there and we ate there every night, got something new each time, and was never touted of it.
Best Hotel in Penang”
We arrived early because we had a morning flight. decided to park our bag at the hotel before strolling the georgetown but they let us check in as early as 11 am. thank you very much. breakfast buffet was satisfying plus the view from the restaurant at lvl 11 is magnificent. room is big enough and the also provide a bath tub so that u can relax after a lot of walking throughout the day in penang. Location wise? superb. definitely will come back
Closed by to great spa and food paradise!”
Returned to this hotel the second time. 5 minutes walk to Red Garden Food Paradise. Most of the local favorites are here, i.e. Char Koay Teow, Penang Laksa, BBQ Seafood, Penang Rojak, BBQ Chicken Wings, etc... Prices are a little up versus street alleys but quality is there! I would buy the foods back to the hotel to eat thus not obliged to buy the drinks (compulsory) which is at sky-high prices. Hotel only provide ONE type of liquid soap for bathing, wash face, cups, etc.... Chanced upon The ReSpa closeby, 53-1-1 Menara MBF Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah. For RM98 one can spend up to 8-hour in the Spa that includes spa, sauna, steam room, gym, cinema, 12-hour restaurant-style foods (buffet) provided, drinks. Additional services include Thai and Balinese massage, foot reflexology, hair salon, manicure & pedicure, sleeping cubicles. Family and kids friendly environment. Opening hours 10am to 12am.
I spent a pleasurable 2 night stay at Hotel Malaysia, the hotel was being renovated and the staff had left a message in the room warning of noise between 10am - 6pm, there was NO noise at all in the room for the 2 days. Staff very friendly and helpful, room was clean (I stayed in a rooom that had been recently renovated, bed very comfortable & bathroom clean and brand new! Close to bars (Soho pub across the street), restaurants and convenience stores. Definitely recommend this hotel, I will be back!
We always stay here each time we go to penang . Location is superb... Nearby mini market.. restaurant and also popular street food also nasi kandar... Walking distance to line clear nasi kandar, the famous jeruk pak ali pasar chow rasta and other place. The hotel has its own parking facilities which is free for hotel customer. We always order king bed room type.. got bath tub .. which my 4year old daughter like very much .... Breakfast is standard and got varities each day got menu rotation ... Also the scenery is amazing up there ... The only things i dont like about this hotel is every night got this people sing very loud and annoying at the back of the hotel and you can hear it from your room and it is very disturbing..
A Good Hotel”
We have stayed in Hotel Malaysia many times over the years, returning at least once every year. Recently (and still ongoing) Hotel Malaysia went thru a refurbishment. The room was clean and the staff are friendly. I did not have hot water for 2 days out of my 4 days stay. Did not complain about it. However, there are small things that the Hotel can do which is not difficult. For example, I asked the hotel if they can arrange for me a taxi after attending a function which I will pay for. They say the are not able to do so. This is not acceptable as all hotels must and should have taxis ready to pick up their guests (which they guests would normally pay). The bell boys/porters/doorman are very friendly and helpful. Overall, this is a good hotel
Nice hotel with affordable price”
The hotel is located in the heart of Georgetown. To go this hotel, we take CAT bus and it is free. The staff is very nice as they informed me the most visited places in Georgetown including the food places. The view is also amazing from my room and also from the restaurant on 11th floor. I will surely stay in this hotel again once I come to Georgetown.
Friendly staff , easy check in n check out , nice bed n clean bathroom , nice view when having breakfast , near to everywhere , 24 hours store beside the hotel . Ty HOTEL MALAYSIA to give us a nice stay when we ' re in penang .
Great hotel in Georgetown ”
Very nice hotel especially for the money. Nice modern clean room. Nice location in Georgetown, many of the attractions are within a short walk as well as the bars and clubs. If I'm in Penang again this is where I'll be staying.
Excellent service & value for money”
The hotel location is very central. Hotel surrounded with food stall, about 7 min walk to the jetty have very nice scenery. Hotel staff very friendly, helpful and excellent service. Hotel room very clean, they change the bedsheets & quit cover daily which you hardly find this service given. I fully recommend this hotel to others. I will come back again for sure. Thumbed up hotel Malaysia.
Nice Hotel, Great Location”
Nice hotel. Great location. Lotsa good food around. Good deals for those traveling with young kids. Clean rooms and well maintained. Restaurant with beautiful Penang view. Only issues was food and choices need to improvise. Staffs should be given more training to handle staffs better, especially the restaurant staffs. Other than that, it’s a good hotel.
Awesome hotel ”
Very clean and the staff very friendly very helpful especially Mr Brian and Gayu and not forgetting breakfast at the 11th floor beautiful view.. I would like to recommend whoever reading this review you must check it out the hotel Malaysia...Good Luck Regards Shaan 🇲🇾
The hotel room is cleaned. I like the single very comfortable.”
I actually booked an extra bed for one of the rooms. It was communicated through Agoda it is approved. But when i was there the staff did not received the information. The Wifi in the room is not strong. Other than that the room is cleaned. The hotel is conveniently walking distance to markets. I have a plessent stayed at Hotel Malaysia.
Best Stay in Penang”
I enjoyed my stay in Hotel Malaysia. Worth the stay. Value for money. We stayed for 5 days there. We got a complimentary breakfast probably due to our long stay. However, we chose not to include breakfast during our booking because you can simply find lots of food along the road. If you are travelling alone, do not be shy to ask around. Walk around and you'll find yourself to many interesting places. You can save lots of money you walk around and enjoy the view. Do not miss the chance to get the hop-on-hop-off bus and plan your activities. The bus will bring you to lots of nice places, I will definitely come back for more.
Great location with huge rooms!!”
Value for money! You're in the very tip of Penang Road and from there it's a stone's throw away from most things. The bus stop for the free Go Penang buses and the Rapid Penang buses are just around the corner, which takes you EVERYWHERE in Penang. I gotta admit that the rooms and the facilities are a bit old, but unless you spend the whole time in the room, it won't bother you that much. But the plus side is that the rooms are HUGE! And if you're lucky you get the rooms facing the sea. So you can't beat that. No complaints on my side.
Hotel feel comfortable and clean.”
Hotel Malaysia is better choice to stay if want to stay at georgetown. Is very convenience to go shop and eat. Most important things is this hotel provide car park and we no need to search where can we park.
