Reception was very efficiency which check in and check out process just took less than 3 minutes. Room is very good looking and comfortable but it has a strong chlorine smell when we entered the room. Housekeeping was efficiency as well when they just took around few minutes to sent some tissue as my request. But the Wi-Fi in room...

Short trip to Penang, we were at Hotel Malaysia from 14-17 September. The room on the 7th floor was quiet, we could not hear anything from the street below. The hotel staff at the Reception area and the coffee house were attentive and courteous. The breakfast buffet spread was sufficient for our hungry souls. Locality was good and we could...

The location is a plus for me. Biggest negative is the wifi. You have to continually keep logging in. Very annoying indeed. Just plain silly. The windows aren't double glazed and so, if you face Red Garden Food Paradise, you can hear the evening music. This did NOT disturb me at all, however. It was faint. The rooms are clean...

I stayed at hotel Malaysia. From the outside, this hotel looks like a budget motel but believe me, it was a renovated hotel from the inside. I totally hate the way they built their toilet. Why on earth you built transparent glass wall for the toilet. I thought toilet should be a private place. The toilet sit was shaky. You...

The room is nice and spacious but I think the towel should change as it looks old. Overall, the hotel is actually old hotel but the management just renovated it which looks new. It is just nice to stay and with short walking distance, we can reach the famous chendul stall, market and restaurants.

Currently staying at this hotel. We arrive this afternoon 11th of July, and the room looked nice. Then we looked at the bed : dirty sheets. Then we entered in the bathroom : hairs in the sink, water and hair still in the shower like someone just took a shower. We asked the reception to clean the room and they...

At the price, it's a nice hotel, although a little dated. Was undergoing some renovations, so was a tad noisy. Spacious rooms with good bathrooms. They need to throw away the linen ware and get new ones. Service is pretty decent. Located in central George Town..

Except from the music from Red Garden it was nice hotel. We extend our stay 2 times. Nice staff. Nice and clean rooms. Most of the time the internet was poor but down in the lobby it was okay. The hotel is now under renovation but on floor 5 we didn't hear so much from it. I hope they will...

The room was decent but could hear so clearly the loud karaoke music of the bars (which only stopped at 1am) opposite the hotel. No wifi in spite of the hotel's promises that there was free wifi in the rooms and everyone we spoke to regarding this issue just kept asking us to keep trying and then at 11pm suggested...
