Very very slow Wifi internet and noisy. The walkie talkie is so annoying especially when they're making up rooms next to your room and you dont want to be disturb. Not a place to relax. All the promotion is a lie. Never stay this place again.

The promo pictures are ridiculously outrageous. Don't believe them at all. We had to move carefully around the bed with a foot of walkway width betwn bed & TV at one end and another foot walkway width betwn bed and cabinet. Parking is very limited. If you're driving, you may risk having to wrestle other drivers for a slot. There...

It was nearly 2am in the morning, been driving from Thailand all day and night. So stopped in Penang to sleep. This is where i found this hotel nestled in this narrow lane. Room was clean and adequate. I was quite impressed for RM140 a night (and this is during peak season). Location is superb.

We are regularly in Penang. The Swiss Grand Hotel with my husband for the first time. This hotel is a good price and quality. Staff polite. The room has a good smell. Linens clean. There is parking at the hotel door. Good Wi-Fi. We are well rested and slept.

This hotel is included in the VISA run package I selected from Phuket Thailand. The hotel is not the greatest in the area by any means. The room is small and has no view but again it was not for a planned trip by myself. The bed sheets are clean but the comforter was heavily stained. The walls need a...

Clean and new place. The room was basic, no fridge or coffee or tea cups provided, but I'd stay again Decent location for a decent price. No breakfast included, but there was very sweet coffee included!

It's a clean small room but fits just for me and my daughter.. Not far from restaurants, cafe, bar, Internet shops, 7'11 and many more.. Also near malls for shopping.. Very easy to find for its only along the road close to the main road of Georgetown Penang.. Affordable rooms and a nice approachable staff..
