The good part is about the staff named Johan. He never failed to welcome us back every time we visit the hotel. Truly delivers a service from his heart. He remembers his customers, and surprisingly he remembers his customers last visit to the hotel...we are so touched. Bad

Response from smehrhpg, Manager at Hard Rock Hotel Penang

Thanks for the smashing review, Matina! It is wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel, and that you were able to make the most of the very popular Lagoon Deluxe Rooms. These rooms are not only spacious and well appointed, but the ability to swim out into our huge lagoon pool straight from the room is a unique experience that many guests really enjoy. 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. Glad you enjoyed this! Compliments to the team of chefs and all front-of-house staff will be shared as they'll be thrilled to know you appreciated their efforts. The hotel's location is at the quiet end of the Batu Ferringhi strip, nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the night markets. We offer the courtesy shuttle down to the markets each night, but there is also the hop on hop off and rapid bus services which run to Georgetown. I am glad you were able to make full use of our shuttle van :) Thank you once again for this lovely review and for recommending us. We look forward to serving you once again! Rock On! Michael Smeeton Executive Assistant Manager

They have a part of the sea netted to swim in but the pool is so much better. The pool is amazing with a swim up bar and great staff.

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
