Beautiful rooms with comfortable beds and an absolutely massive bathroom, on the pricey side. We didn't try the breakfast (it's Penang, you go out and stuff your face with hawker food!) so cannot comment. The room we first got was smoky so the staff immediately obliged and got us another room. They also gave us helpful recommendations on places to visit around Georgetown.

Good value for money, good service and location in Georgetown”
I'm glad I was able to get a good deal with Agoda for Hotel Penaga. My husband and I went for a short holiday in Penang and we wanted a nice, affordable hotel that had that old world charm and was well located so we can easily get around Georgetown. Hotel Penaga is within walking distance from some good hawker centers, restaurants and cafes so its location is convenient. The staff were helpful and friendly from check-in to check-out. The room was nicely decorated and was comfortable and cozy. The free stuff at the mini-bar, and free afternoon tea (free tea, coffee and some biscuits/local pastries) at the restaurant were a pleasant surprise. There was a decent selection of food at the buffet breakfast and the brewed coffee was good!

Bad service ”
I arrived the hotel at 12pm, and I was aware that check-in is at 3pm so I’ve requested to leave my bag there while I go out and adventure penang, after being out for a couple hours later, I arrived the hotel being told that my room is still not ready for me despite the few extra hours that were given to them when I was out (I went back to the hotel at around 6pm). I was asked to wait by a rude man with no apologies made and instead given me a very bad attitude instead. The room’s air conditioning was horrible and when my partner and I took a shower, the bathroom was flooded with water out of nowhere. I really wouldn’t recommend anybody coming here because the price is not on par with the service. You can get better service and hotel facilities and a cheaper price

Unique and relaxing Hotel”
Went with my wife for 2D1N. The location was good. At the middle of georgetown. You can go to many tourists spot with walking distance. Hotel staff was very friendly and kind. Room was huge but a little bit dirty with dust on our bed. But thats not big deal. We clean it by ourselves. Haha. Jacuzzi also was so good and no water heater problem. Overall everything was nice and we enjoyed our stay there.

Lovely Heritage Building in the Middle of It All!”
For a weekend getaway from Singapore, I booked 4 rooms at Penaga Hotel for a group of 8 adults (3 Hutton Deluxe and 1 Transit Suite). We were pleased to arrive with an upgrade to the Clarke Terraces for two of the rooms, part of a full two-story terrace house to ourselves. The downstairs living room was a great socializing and meeting place for the group before going out together. The original Transit Suite was beautiful and spacious, but if you are in the lower floor, you will hear people walking on the old creaky wood floors above you all day and all night. We ended up switching to another Transit Suite on the top floor. The staff was very accommodating and we enjoyed that room much better. Breakfast was pretty basic , but satisfied us. I'd recommend checking out the cute cafes around Penang instead. Overall, the hotel was great for what we wanted!

Very Good Service & Location”
Service & location were very good. Friendly & helpful staff and guards. Walking distance to Kimberley Street. Pretty nice antique furnishings with comfortable beds. Clean. There is jacuzzi in the bathroom, however, didn’t get to use as we were out most if the time. We were given complimentary high tea which was just average but a good gesture by the hotel. Complimentary wine was great too ! Some areas of improvement require attention though. Choice of breakfast was rather limited & tasted bland. The only food we enjoyed was the curry puffs served during high tea, they were good. Sound proof rooms will be great cos the noise from the motorbikes on the road was horrendous. The hotel pool is small, no one swims, more like part of decoration. For that price, it will be good to see some improvements in future. Overall we had a pleasant stay there.

Not Maintained and Pest Control needed. ”
woke up on second dat to dead cockroaches around our bed. Water pressure was bad and room walls were stained. Balcony chair was also broken. At RM600 per night for our room we didn't get value. For that price they should definitely maintain the place better. Breakfast is nothing to shout about. ROti canai place behind the hotel is great though. Skip the hotel breakfast and try that. Hotel location is excellent but loads of cheaper hotels if location is important to you. Campbell House or E&O hotel are the benchmark and I would recommend those instead if you are willing to pay RM600 plus per room.

Had a jacuzzi in the bathroom. First night it would not start which was disappointing. Second night it started but then we could not turn it off which was very annoying. Helpfull staff came and turned it off at 1 pm. Apart from that very good experience with good service and always with a smile.

Not too bad”
First, I booked a trishaw ride from where the hotel is to Chulia Street which I wasn't informed how much it would cost me. Basically a walking distant cost me RM50 which the trishaw rider said he had to share the profit with this hotel front counter. Which means, Penaga staff is making side income. Secondly, the room I got 3rd floor Room30 aircond wasn't working to its full effect. It wasn't cold even with the ceiling fan full on. Otherwise, I'd still come back giving this property a second chance.

Love the jacuzzi!!”
Located strategically near to Kimberley street. Near a lot of restaurant and good hawker good food. Quite eerie to walk alone at night but if you’re in a group, it should be fine. Quite a romantic stay for me and my gf. The interior is very nice and love the wooden furnitures and the art they hang on the wall. Especially love the bathroom, a shower and jacuzzi. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
