The Bayview is lovely place to stay in Penang with very big rooms and bathrooms. The room I stayed in was newly refurnished. The reception staff is friendly and always willing to help. Location was great and within 3 minutes distance from all the food joints and Pubs. I will definitely stay in Bayview hotel if I visit Penang again.

Negative points - Quite an old building, nothing much can be done about it so you would see old furniture in the room. The front office insist to charge me half...

The Bayview hotel is in a great position near the top of Jalan Penang. You can explore most of Georgetown on foot from here, although the heat will require you to make a few air-conditioned 'pit stops'! My room was very spacious, on the fourth floor, which is a smoking floor. It had a small balcony over-looking the pool. The...

Stayed for 3 nights in a standard room. And as expected, everything was pretty standard. The check-in staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms could use a bit of renovation. The pool is really small. Overall, the hotel feels old and lacks modern ambiance. Hotel breakfast is subpar. The spread doesn't have much to offer, and the coffee is terrible....
