Best Hotel in Town”

I have heard so much about this hotel that I wanted to try it out myself. I was in town for Business Trip and had a very comfortable stay here at Light Hotel. The check in process was a breeze, very cozy and comfortable room. Internet connection was good, so was the water pressure in shower as well as the amenities provided in the rooms. The icing on top of the cake for me was the Breakfast provided. As a vegetarian, I am not used to not having much choices during buffet meals. But this time I was spoilt for choice especially with the South Indian food corner with Thosai/Roti Canai/ Paal Appam/Vadai etc. Only complain is probably I couldn't enjoy the wonderful salads and delicious pastries as much as I wanted to (as I was too full from the Indian food corner). Yummy! The location of the hotel is also great as there is a hospital nearby, shopping mall and many eateries. I did not get to enjoy the lounge or pool as I was there during Business Trip but I surely recommend this hotel for personal or business trips.

Standard maintained”

My last stay at the Light Hotel was just before Covid period. Considering that there had been a 3 year lull period for most hotels, I am very pleased to have re-selected this hotel to stay during my CNY trip. Hotel has maintained its standard, or even better (than what I remembered last time) Rooms were kept very clean and maintained well. Staffs were pleasant and helpful. Buffet had a good spread of local delights. Their CNY decor was also one of the nicest I have seen. Keep up the good work! Location is also good as and they are quite close to Sunway Carnival mall which had also extended and renovated a while ago. Look forward to staying there again the next time.

Two nights at Superior room”

Check in was smooth eventho I had came in late at 4-5pm. Love the ambiance of the hotel. You can feel that all is well maintain as you walk from the lobby to the room. Room is very clean and comfortable. It is very quiet and calm at night. Amenities is complete with kettle, cups, mineral water, iron and iron board, soap, shampoo, hair cap, two towels etc. The breakfast has varieties to choose and scrumptious. There is other restaurant at waking distance too. Simply put, I love everything about this hotel and feel secure eventhough I was travelling alone. The staff is also always willing to help if you need anything.

The light will make you come again”

Our no 1 choice of stay in mainland Penang. Strategic location for food and other shopping requirement. Walking distance to several nasi kandar restaraunts, sunway carnival mall for shopaholic, close distance to old penang bridge if you need to cross over to island. Rooms are in tiptop condition. Gym and sauna great for brief daily exercise. Not forgetting the pool. The breakfast buffet- you just cant stop eating :-) In summary, once you stay at light, you will definitely stay here again :-)

Best buffet breakfast!”

We arrived around 1pm. Granted early check in. Thank you for the help of front desk. I opt for queen bed during booking but got double twin bed. Just accept gladly since they let us check in early. Bedroom are clean and i can smell hints of herbs aroma on their bedding.. toiletries in complete set. They also provide 2 bottles of mineral water, snack & 2 can soda in room. Bellboys are friendly. They help with our luggage and always greet us. Breakfast buffet is the best. Freshly baked croissant, live station for char kuay teow, roti canai, thosai. Mee kari, egg station.. teh tarik! They did not charge my 6yo kids for the bfast. Staff during check out a lil bit unfriendly. The only turndown during this visit.
