Kimberley Hotel location is excellent. Walking distance for foods and transportation. ”

All the department staffs of Kimberley Hotel are helpful, approachable and hospitality in all ways since the day we check in. All staffs and head of the hotel so be rewarded if the hotel make profit. I will recommend all my friends to stay at Kimberley Hotel if anyone going to Penang. It brighten the visit during the stay in Penang. It a wonderful trips for me after almost 26 years. It gave me a very good impression of Penang after this short trip. I will and will go to Penang again. Wanted to highlighted is that if hotel can provide airport transfer and charge at a reasonable prices it will be wonderful for tall hotel guests. It only a recommendation but not a must.

Location, Location, Location!”

Kimberley Hotel Georgetown is all about the location. Its situated perfectly in the midst of everything. All the attractions are walking distance, be it the beautiful, artsy streets of Georgetown, the Hawker Markets for Street Food at night, or a nearby mall for grocery and some mall time. Also nearby are the Glow in the Dark Museum, and other such activities. Add to that, you get all the conveniences of a hotel, be it having the room made, towels, wi-fi, basic supplies etc. It's perfect if you wanna save on transport costs, and plan to spend most of your time in and around the city hot-spots. The staff were very helpful, and they had useful city maps in the lobby which served us well during our time there. The only compromise is the room size, so be prepared for tiny rooms. You cant add an extra bed, and I found hot water to be warm at best, and not consistent. But overall for the location and the conveniences, it was absolutely worth it.

'A Class Above' Among 3-Star Hotels”

This is my sincere compliment to Kimberley Hotel. Located at the centre of Georgetown, it has the most strategic access to the best street food within its close proximity, especially at night. Hotel maintenance is of excellent standards, keeping the cleanliness at tip-top condition. This hotel is also doing great in its cafe - "Auction Room", serving generous and quality breakfasts and brewed coffee. On the price against comparable peers, you will find this Hotel is relatively cheaper after considering the quality and comfort of stay. Staff are courteous and friendly would definitely cheer you up, whether you are on personal or business trip. No regret.

This was my second visit to Kimberley Hotel and I would really recommend it to anyone travelling to Penang. The location is just perfect and central to almost all the attractions and awesome food. They have a range of room sizes but all are very clean and comfortable. The best thing about this hotel is the wonderful staff. I cant remember all their names but to Angie and friends... thanks for being such a wonderful bunch. The next time we come back to Penang will not search anywhere else and definitely return to Kimberley. For anyone who hasnt been to Penang... it's a must. And if you want to make your trip perfect, stay at this hotel!

Pleasently suprised”

I wanted to stay in this part of Penang near the shopping and eating areas and booked at the Kimberley. I was a bit nervous with this choice after reading so many bad reviews. Upon arrival I was met with a very efficient and quick check in staff. After getting in my room I was pleasantly surprised to see a beautiful and clean room. I first cranked up my iPad and telephone and the wifi was smokingly fast. The air condition worked perfectly and the shower was one of the best if had in asia with plenty of pressure AND no flooding in the room as mentioned in some of the reviews. The TV had enough English speaking and sports channels but the internet was so good I just plugged in my chromcast ant watched my favorite channels. If I want to be picky I could say they didn't serve bacon. I'm surprised someone didn't complain about that. Breakfast had an Asian flair with the noodle dishes, chicken, rice and vegetables. They did have scrambled eggs, baked beans, and chicken ham sausage. Not a proper Full English breakfast but excellent for the room price paid. And let's not forget the excellent security guard who goes above and beyond his job to assist with bags or offer assistance with any questions one may have.

Totally highly recommended hotel”

Kimberley Hotel is simply the hotel of choice for all travellers regardless of budgets. Its heritage character is as striking as the incredibly friendly staff. Its location is central: you can explore the CBD and outlying areas on feet; the rest on Grab Taxi. Local eating joints are within walking distsnces. The entire hotel is very clean and secure. I’ll be returning to Kimberley Hotel in a shot the next time I visit Penang. Thank you to all its staff. Ny best wishes to each one of you. - Manjit Bhatia, London, UK

Convenient location in the heart of town ”

Kimberley Hotel is located just off Lebuh Kimberley, in the middle of Georgetown. Lots of good food options are available nearby, at most times of the day, which makes this a convenient location for travellers looking to eat their way through Penang. Each day we would finish off the day's activities with a dessert from one of the many local dessert shops located on Lebuh Kimberley. Some places of interest are within walking distance from this hotel, including Clan Jetties, UNESCO World Heritage site buffer zone, as well as numerous cafes and local street food shops like New Lane Hawker and Lebuh Chulia Hawker etc. There is also Prangin Mall down the street, at which we could get sim card and other necessities, as well as convenience stalls next door to the hotel. The hotel room was cosy, and toilets looked clean, though the room floor felt bit sticky so I didn't go barefoot. Not much other amenities available, and we didn't get breakfast even though the option is available. Staff were friendly. Be prepared to put down a refundable deposit (approx RM50) for the room, and some miscellaneous payment (approx RM20 non-refundable) upon check in.

One of the cheapest hotels, in the heart of Georgetown!”

By far this is the most convenient (location-wise) hotel I've ever stayed in Penang! Most of the tourist attractions and landmarks e.g. Teochew cendul, KOMTAR, 1st Avenue Mall are within 5-10mins walking distance. If you've always think that finding parking in Georgetown is a disaster, then Hotel Kimberley should be your right choice.

Charming but Older Property”

It is an older property that has a lot of charm. It provides a good experience staying in the older part of Penang. However, if you want a more modern experience there are other places on the island that will provide that other than downtown Georgetown. Whether this is a great hotel for you or not will be determined by what you are looking for when visiting Penang. We had a nice room with a balcony. We were in within walking distance of old Georgetown and the food stalls there. but it was a 20-minute drive to the newer shopping malls and new condos and apartments available on other parts of the island.

Strategic Hotel at Komtar Area”

This hotel located in Sungai Ujong street, very near to Komtar Bus Terminal, Prangin mall, 1st Avenue mall and Tops mall. Hotel also very near to Kimberley street food, which offer lots of delicious street foods along Kimberley street, just 3 minutes walk from the hotel. Both bedroom and bathroom was clean, room space enough for one person but a bit small for two persons. Water pressure especially for hot water are stable and consistant. Staffs are kind and polite, so overall this hotel was very satisfied for me.

Very nice and cozy place to stay - but not for work”

I've stayed for an extended week-end in Kimberley Hotel Georgetown. The hotel is nice and located very well. The only thing that could significantly improved is the internet connection. It is such slow that I wasn't even to work properly with my laptop. I think that is an issue everywhere on that island. The staff is very friendly and attentive although the check-in process could be improved - it took quite a long time for it. Besides that it was a pleasant stay.

There was no indication in the description that there were no windows in any of the deluxe rooms. We would have been fine with no window, but there should have been at least a mention in the description since the photos were somewhat misleasing. It showed the rooms had windows and led to corridors with a view of the street below. Even so, it was an overall pleasant stay at the Kimberley Hotel.

Clean , reasonable friendly hotel”

Stumbled into this hotel while searching for a place to stay for the weekend in Penang. Reached the hotel during late evening and was attended to by the two very friendly and helpful staff at the reception counter. Got our registration done up very fast and we got to our room without hassle. The room we had was not too big but then for the price we paid, we have nothing to complain. One thing that make my wife very happy is the cleanliness of the hotel and the rooms. We got to know that this hotel was only opened 3 months ago and is still in the "soft launch" stage. Hopefully, they are able to maintain the cleanliness which is the most important criteria. Location wise, they are located opposite the Komtar and is very convenient. Hawkers are located within 2mins walk from the hotel and they serve very famous local fares. They are also within walking distance to the famous cendol stall. They also own a very nicely decorated cafe besides the hotel where they serve you welcome drinks. One can sit down and enjoy a nice cup of coffee and snap pictures which can turn our to be very beautiful. Checking out was a hassle-free task with the two friendly and efficient ladies during the day shift. The only setback is the limited parking place inside the hotel. Also, wifi is a bit weak. Nevertheless, we have no complaints about this hotel and in fact, we strongly recommend to our son who is planing to come up for holiday next month. To the management of the hotel, I hope you guys can keep up the good work in maintaining the cleanliness and also, the pricing. Hope to see you all again.

Nice hotel close to Komtar (for buses to/from the airport and most attractions in Penang Island) and Georgetown. My room is small but is comfortable. There are some small flies on the ceilings (attracted to the light) but luckily they don't bother me. I appreciate the helpful staffs, and the water dispenser beside the lift at every level.

Fantastic base to explore Georgetown and right across from Komtar (The Top)”

Main reason we picked this hotel was because of it's close proximity to Komtar. But we were also pleasantly surprised to discover its close location to Chowrasta market and Nasi Kandar Line Clear! So in terms of location this hotel is definitely the best. The suite was wonderful and my kids thought that the hotel was very fancy because the room was on split level. The room was spacious, aircond was good and strong, and was simply furnished but met all our needs. Cleanliness was satisfactory and beds were very comfortable. My only issue is the drainage in the shower was not very good, so shower time had to be kept short otherwise we would flood the bathroom. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to stay here if we wanted to explore Georgetown.

No frills Hotel. Good value for your money.”

Located somewhat centrally in Georgetown, the hotel is close to the Prangin Bus Station and is minutes away from great hawker food morning, noon and night. The room I had was a single with a queen sized bed and a shuttered window that is permanently closed. The room itself is quite tight for space and has a basic desk with a TV hung above it. It also has a small open closet with a few clothes hangers for shirts. The staff make and clean the room everyday unless you indicate otherwise. However, the room was not big enough for a chair to accompany the writing table. The bathroom and shower were adequate albeit very tight. You’re provided very small bottles of soap and shampoo. The shower is standing room only with the shower curtain closed otherwise everything gets wet. There was a bad leak in my room when it rained heavily one night and left a big puddle on the floor. That is the only complaint I have about my stay. The room was good value for the money!

Good attention from hotel as I sent the inquiries message about extra bed via Agoda application chat box, hotel replied back within 15 minutes which is very impressive. The staffs (Receptions, Maids, Guards ) are helpful and smiley. Also there is excellent hotel restaurant (Actions), the food and price is more than valuable. Also the waitress are very helpful.
