Best Budget hotel”
The hotel is located in housing area, so it is quite. There is AEON big, pelita and quite a variety of eataries can be found nearby from 2-10 mins far. The best part I liked about the hotel is the provided room was clean, the washroom were clean. And satisfied with the rest of the amenities. Since it is a budget hotel, it doesn't have a lift. For a few nights stay, this hotel has it all. Will definitely choose to stay here.
Affordable and nice place”
The pros is its near to aeon and many more nice place. The cons is the television should improve more on the channel. That day i came no battery on the remote control. Hope can improve on tv. The rest is perfect. Tq.
Value For Money”
The location quite far from center of the town but it's ok for me because I'm prefer the quite environment. The location is near to AEONBig and very convenient. For eating, there are many stalls and warong nearby and the food there is good. For that price, it is value for money.
The room facilities is lack of maintenance.
The best budget Hotel ever”
If you want to for a short vacay in penang. this is the best hotel to consider. the receptionist is too friendly... the room is wayyy to clean and cons about this hotel is that the parking is not available after 1am. you have to go back to your hotel perhaps by 12pm because the best hotel maybe fully occupied by tourist.
Value, staff, condition, cons”
Value- worth every cents. My two nights stay only costs a total of RM140. Staff- very friendly and helpful. Always smiling. Typical penangites. The guy at the reception even helped carry my child (since our hands are full) and showed us our room. Condition- clean and tidy. The room quite spacious. Cons- tv remote not working (not a prob for me since we don't went for holiday just to spend the day watching tv), location a bit isolated (but to those who dislike the hustle n bustle it will be a perfect place to rest)
Maintenance require to keep the room facilities is in working condition ”

Value for money
Wife fell on tripping the extra stairs the hotel have contructed.”
I nearly trip going downstairs to reception because of an extra stairs they build and its flooring tiles was same as the main floor. Stupid construction. It only have a yellow sticker to warn when walking upstairs and my wife fell flat on the face with luggages going down. The reception did nothing to help and also no apology from her. I may take legal action as she have twisted her ankle.
Overall, our stay was acceptable for this kind of budget hotel.
Room Facilities becoming worst”
Lack of maintenance and check
Value for travellers needing an early start”
Staff at counter (an Indian lady) during check in was very unfriendly and rude. Room was small but is fine if you just need a place to rest for the night. Very near to the Juru toll. Small sundry shop downstairs and Aeon Big just a few minutes away but both offering not many food option for small kids so be warned. Lots of parking space available but cars will still park haphazardly and not in the designated lots.
After we check in, the hot shower was not working and the toilet bowl was kind of stuck. Called them in to repair it, they solved the toilet but no hot shower at all!!! They said cannot be repaired. Day 2, we went for breakfast, before we go we told the boss of the hotel that the hot shower is still not fix yet. Please do something about it. When we were back, they hot shower were back. But room was not make up. Wifi was slow too. Overall, don't book this hotel. The boss is OK, but staff is dishonest. Repair guys are incompetent. No point staying there.
Starway Hotel Review”
The bed was not comfortable to sleep with, especially the pillow. Wifi signal was slow and hard to connect in the room. Location wise too secluded, hardly any amenities nearby but to drive out to nearest AEON hypermarket.
Comfort, Value for Money, New & Clean”
For a budget hotel standard, this hotel is good. Had a great & comfort stay there. No complains & hope they'll continue to stay NEW & Clean for many years to come (maintenance of the property & condition is very important)
