Thanks for the smashing review, Siti Faizal! Ecstatic to read of how much you enjoyed your stay at the Hard Rock Hotel Penang. We are very glad to read that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you found the Roxity Kids Suite to be ideal for your needs. These suites are a unique product in Malaysia and is a great place for kids to enjoy their stay and feel like a little rock star. We are very glad your kids enjoyed the room and the games and toys. The in-room movies that we offer free of charge is quite a unique concept in Malaysia. The selection of free movies that you can play on our 50' inch TV and the Bose Sound System is a great value-add which enhances the stay experience. We currently offer over 50 movies free on demand. Great to see that your kids had a great time by the pool. Hard Rock Hotel Penang is proud to be a leading family hotel in Malaysia and hearing of kids having fun is music to our ears. Compliments will be shared with the Front Office, Housekeeping and Culinary Teams. Glad you appreciated their services and enjoyed their offerings. We look forward to hosting you again, perhaps, in the near future! Rock On! Michael Smeeton Executive Assistant Manager

I am thrilled about our stay at HR Hotel in Penang, everything was superb to 99%, a small detail, a more calm area in the breakfast would be making this trip 100%. Location and facilities & staff service is the best we experienced in Asia.

There is no free shuttle. Best to call the hotel and arrange for a pick up if you want, which will be charged according to the size of the vehicle that you want. Alternatively there are lots of taxis at the airport
