Wonderful hotel ”
We originally booked for two nights in the link hotel, and ended up extending our stay by another three. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with a great breakfast included. The hotel is well located near to some great penang street food locations, and the heritage area is only a twenty minute walk away. The staff are some of the best we have encountered throughout our travels. Very friendly and welcoming, every staff member was more than willing to help with recommendations and suggestions for our trip in Penang. The city itself is vibrant, the people welcoming, and the food is excellent. We would love to return in the future.
Clean hotel, helpful staff and good location”
Link Hotel is a fairly new hotel. The rooms are small (which was ok, since we didn't come to Penang to sit in your room), they are very clean and tidy. The owner, Haeng (sp?) was always on hand with good tips/advice on local attractions, food, etc. The staff (esp. Roy), were also very friendly and helpful. In the hallway on each floor of the hotel, they have a drinking water machine for guests. This is a great idea since you can re-fill/re-cycle your water bottles instead of buying new bottles -a good step to reduce plastic waste! All hotels should have these drinking water machines.
Near to food court, 7-11, pharmacy, native store and many more”

Pharmacy is just beside the food court, 7-11 is at the next 2 street (beside 24 hours restaurant).

Great location great saff”
The good: Location is near to food stalls, and the food there are DELICIOUS!! Located in the town center, very convenient. Staffs are friendly and helpful, with warm smiles all the time too. Parking is provided. The room and bathroom is clean. Water dispenser is available every floor. The bad: Sound insulation is not good. Car, motorbike and noise from outside is loud. Shampoo, bath gel and hand wash are all in one, no toothbrush and basic amenities. Breakfast is real basic. (But these are mentioned, furthermore as traveler to Penang, we don't expect to have heavy breakfast in hotel). Overall had a very good stay in Link Hotel. Definitely will come back again.
Honestly I really cannot think of anything lacking or bad about this hotel & it's staff. Hotel was extremely clean & all the staff were simply friendly, courteous & helpful. I will definitely stay here again for my future trips to Georgetown. I wish to convey my sincere thanks to all the staff of Link Hotel for making my stay a beautiful & memorable one.
Worth every Ringgit and cents”
We stayed in this hotel for a night. Even though it is just for a night, it worth every ringgit and cents we paid for. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and helpful when it comes to best local food guides and sightseeing, appreciate their attentiveness in taking good of their guests' welfare. So don't feel shy to approach them if you need guides in finding the best local food and sightseeing. The location of this hotel is very strategic, as it surrounded by hawkers centres and restaurants and they are within walking distance. Therefore, you don't have to worry so much about your meals as foods are available 24/7. The hotel only has two parking slots right in front of their building, so first come first serve basis. So either you are lucky enough to get to park your car right in front of their building or you have to park your car at the nearby roadside (public parking slots - where you have to pay using parking coupons). However, the hotel owner and management efforts should be applauded as they provide alternative and solution to this problem whereby they do provide free parking for their guests at a parking area, just the next street away of the hotel from 6p.m-11a.m. Cleanliness of the hotel and room is in tip top condition and the facilities are new as they are newly opened, only few months back. Their complimentary breakfast is very simple, nothing to shout about. To sum it up, it is one of the best hotel that we have ever stayed and highly recommended for those who are looking for the best and affordable hotel in Penang Island, which I can assure that you will not regret.
Nice calm place”
This is nice calm place to spend some days at penang. It z neat and clean hotel. Having all the facilities you needed. Free breakfast and it was nice. On each floor there are water dispensar for hot and cold water. Thanks link hotel for such great services
Good for solo travellers and family! Awesome stay”
My stay at the Link Hotel was great, their receptionists are very friendly and will advise you where to head to. Location of the hotel is near the main street that has lots of good food. Even the famous pizza (according to locals) is directly at the coffeeshop, across the hotel. You will never go hungry if you stay there. Hotel will also provide car service if you need with a minimal fee. The room is quite clean, except that the bed is quite hard. However, you will get used to it. Otherwise, there is a water dispenser at every level. Will recommend Link hotel to anyone who is heading to Penang
Nice comfy hotel in Penang”
The hotel is quite nice in terms of amenities and very accomodating staff. I also like the free breakfast for the price that I paid. It's affordable. The only drawback that I can think of is the location of the hotel is a bit far from Armenia St or the major tourist sites that they have in Penang. However, they are also near to the market and the hawker type food stalls which you can sample different type of local food. So I guess it depends on what are your priorities when you to go to Penang.
The hotel is not very near to many attractions in Georgetown but it’s quite convenient travelling with Uber (MYR 3-5 each trip). There is a coffee shop at the corner of the street selling a variety of local food. The room is considerably clean but there are some ants and fruit flies. Staffs from front desk to housekeeping are all very friendly. The front desk staff is very knowledgeable and gives us a brief introduction about places of interest in Penang. Western style breakfast (bread, cake, egg, sausage, coffee tea, juice, etc) are inclusive. There is no phone in the room. There are four of us staying in two rooms and we have to use whatsapp to contact each other.
Friendly staff and clean room but limited wifi”
Hotel is a 10-15 mins walk away from Komtar bus terminal. It is quite a distance from the attractions near Armenian street, but famous food are all around and Uber ride around Georgetown cost 2-6RM. The hotel staffs are very friendly and always greet me when I walk past them. The room itself is decent with hot showers and clean linens, worth it for the price paid. The breakfast they provide is simple and I enjoyed the Nasi lemak. The negative side is that wifi is poor at night when you return to your hotel room, but I read it is a common problem in Penang itself for budget stays. You can hear noises from corridors and your neighbours too, but it is sparse and doesn't affect me too much. Room might be a bit small for 2 person too, although I stayed alone so it's fine.
Friendly staff, clean and good location”
I stayed here 2 night, the room is the G floor so it is a little noisy because people often went around but room is clean and good location. there is many food court here and also easily to catch a bus. the staffs is friendly and give many good advises. The breakfast is not many choices but i think it's good with the price. Just remind you, the restaurant which is opposite to Link hotel is very delicious.
Very Friendly Staff”
KING SIZE BEDROOM. Design from outside is beautiful chinese style and location is good. Even not on the main road but this hotel is calm and relax. Clean Room -- Good Wifi The important is surround by food 24 hours 😍😍😍 And one things i really like of this hotel is the hospitality of the staff. Since i arrived they welcoming me very nice and inform me very good info about the surround of hotel and also the place of interested in Penang. Many nice resto that i got from them. In the morning also when i need help fir print some company document for apply visa they also provide free printing for me. Its make me extend again more nights here. :) Breakfast also cute. Budget price with great service.
In my opinion - best hotel in george town for this price”
We have a appartement with breakfast , the food was a little spicy (real a little) and very good. Room was clean. If i comeback to Penang , i definitely book Link Hotel
Dear Guest, Glad that you enjoyed our stay here with us. Looking forward to see you again in Penang. Thanks and wishing you a wonderful day. Link Hotel Management.
Great staff for help”
This is a good little hotel, space is small but for the price it wasn't too bad. Its a basic room to put your head down and a wet room for showering and toilet. The receptionist was brilliant....he was so friendly and informative and gave us lots of help of where to go for fabulous eateries. We wanted to hire a motorbike but as they didn't have any he did put us in touch with someone from a neighbouring hotel who could help us out. The breakfast was very limited - toast, rice noodles and boiled eggs, but the toast was enough to get you to your next meal, which was lots of options in Penang. Wifi was ok. There is a great food market on the corner and 10 mins walk away for night food markets. The only downside to this hotel was that although they provided you with cups and hot water machine of every floor, there were no spoons to make a drink with, so something to bear in mind if you wanted to make a coffee in your room. Towels were also threadbare but again it was bearable for the few days we were there. The hotel was about 2km from the main parts of Georgetown and it was walkable but then having to walk about town as well it could make the day quite tiring, and then trying to get a taxi back to the hotel could be stressful as the taxis's do not use meters and you have to negotiate before you get in the taxi - obviously being a tourist they are out to get you. Other than those points it is a satisfactory hotel to put your head down. The staff definitely made this hotel nicer.
Ok, but weak wifi this time”
This was our second stay at Link Hotel. We chose this hotel for the second time because we were very satisfied during our first time of staying here. Everything were all ok - food, wifi, cleanliness... But on our second time of staying here was not as good as our first. This time, wifi was really weak that we cannot connect to the wifi in the floor that we are staying. I used the wifi in the other floor which caused the weak signal.
With the amount I pay, worth it. ”
This is quite a basic hotel, expected. No room slippers and hotel room phone. The location is a little out of the free CAT bus zone but still it's within walking distance (900m from Jalan Transfer). I will still recommend staying this hotel because I enjoyed their services. Receptionists are very friendly. They were able to help us and provided information to tour around Georgetown. Two thumbs up to the receptionist on my last day. He helped me to sort out the door of my room hotel ASAP because battery had went out and I couldn't get into my room. Thanks to him also, he helped me to get on a cheaper ride using Uber.
Nice hotel with a very excellent hospitality”
I stay for almost 10 days in this hotel. i really like this hotel. the room is small, but i still can manage my luggage inside. they also have dining table so i don't have to eat my take away dinner in the room. I can keep my room free from bad odor. the wifi is also good. i can do the streaming, especially on the first floor. this hotel is located at the centre of the city, near to the recreation side and all tourist attraction. the staff is really help, both staff explained me how to enjoy penang, ride on the bus, and the delicious food. really recommend. definitely come back to this hotel.
Great hospitality service!!!!”
Great reception staff.. so warm and welcoming. Even when we turn up with small kids, they still accepted us with a smile. We didnt manage to get her name though. Breakfast was also included for all. The hotel room is very clean and cosy. The only reasons i gave a 4 for the facilities is that if they provide a full mirror (maybe behind the door due to limited space) and also have a kiblat sign for muslim prayers in the room would be better. Plus having an ironing board on each floors where the water dispenser would be more ideal as i am sure people would use the ironing services. Other than that, we had enjoyer our stay and will come again next time we visit georgetown. Thank you...
Love this hotel!”
The location very good. It near to restaurant so you can get a lot of food near to the Link Hotel. Staff also very nice and always prepare to help customer.
