Jackhammers and loud construction going on through 2017. Stay at this hotel is unbearable. Stayed at this hotel for many years but will have to look for new hotel. All of the rooms now hear the construction going on tearing up floors and using heavy equipment. This goes on from 10 to 6:30

By the corner.. a triangle shaped hotel...between jalan penang...jalan chulia...a business class hotel ..stragetic location either for food and other entertainment one could find. Room service is available should one unable to come out to buy food...or other purposes. With the friendly services one could choose to stay for days..either by weekly or monthly depending on availability for rooms.

Spent a great night at the Oriental Hotel.. great location, very friendly customer service, and very reasonably priced. Very nice views out over the city. Simple but very good quality hotel. Many thanks.

Walking distance to attractive location like Uptown Museum, Sup Hameed, Nasi Kandar Line Clear and many more...you save your time walking to these places instead of stuck in 'well-known' traffic in Penang..

Friendly staff and clean room..tq for the hospitality

Having waded through various home stays and lodges I was comforted by the very warm welcome of the friendly staff at the Orient and booked on that alone. The room was all you need (very basic) and in spite of reception saying wifi is available but not guaranteed it was perfectly fine with a strong signal in my room and fall back options to sign into in case of weak signal. The street noise can be overbearing at times and also the call to prayer speaker is right beside the hotel, though nothing earplugs or noise reductive headphones can't silence. I returned 2 days later for another night and was given a room in a quieter part of the hotel. I soon discovered there are no quiet parts. The mark against this friendly hotel was that the sheets hadn't been changed and I discovered hair all through both beds and marks on the sheets that covered a stained mattress. I discovered too late after a night out so didn't managed to get it rectified. I scrubbed myself clean with the free soap in the morning.
