I visited my friends in Penang in August. A lot of hotels were full during that time because of the holidays. Decided to stay in Cititel when we searched from the internet and found it locates in the heart of the Georgetown.
Since we are not familiar with Penang, even with the map to the hotel, we still lost. When we called up to the hotel, the staff is helpful to guide us there.
The parking space is very limited I will have to say. Luckily my friends drove us out, or else you will not get any parking space if you come back at night.
The room has been refurbished I believe because of the design and set up. It's quite comfortable for short stay.
Food stalls are available and Komtar is within walking distance. You can get Penang local delights nearby.
The pub street is not far from the hotel and it's very happening at night.
Not sure the management can look into the parking space for the hotel guests because it's really full.
