I stayed at Waterfall Hotel, Penang recently with my parents for a night. We were there for pilgrimage trip hence we decided to stay a hotel near to temples and this was a perfect place. The room is spacious, comfy and clean. It has two double beds as we stayed in a Superior Family Room. The room consists of all the basic facilities such as Hot Shower, Toiletries, Towels, Hairdryer, Fridge and Electric Kettle. Near by there is an Indian Restaurant which offer both Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian Food. There are also other cafes. Overall, it was good.

Had the privilege of staying at this hotel the second time. May last visit was a year ago and the room was run down then. Expected the same but I was wrong. The rooms have been upgraded and certainly worth the stay. The hotel being close to the Waterfalls Murugan Temple ( Hindu GOD) was certainly a plus. It has a guarded carpark and ensures the safety of your vehicle. The team are friendly and accommodate to your queries. Syabas.

The hotel is the closest stay I could find to the Thai Royal Consulate. If your just shopping price, I thought this was a good value. Hot shower, speedy WiFi, clean, good electric sockets, blow dryer, coffee maker but no coffee. My room had no windows, a bit claustrophobic feeling, but still got a good rest. Breakfast at 9:30 boo, but walking distance is a restaurant with some eatables , local style foods. GRAB is very prevalent in the area, with a 2-5 min wait time. Georgetown is the city life of the island, fantastic restaurants, Indian town, china town, and upside down museum. 10 RM GRAB, one way.

This hotel is a joke. If you want a shower with hot water, forget it because the shower doesn't even have it. Internet is absolutely atrocious you cannot even connect to it and if you do manage to somehow connect then it instantly kicks you straight back off. You ask the staff to come and fix and then they come to the room and then it magically works for 5 minutes. The moment they leave it goes straight back off again. You then ask them again and they arrogantly tell you it's working. If you are considering staying this hotel - seriously don't as you'll be very disappointed.
