Welcome to LOOP on Leith! Loop On Leith George Town Penang Hotel by Compass Hospitality We’re a new, trendy and stylish boutique hotel located just beside George Town, Penang’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our name comes from our connection to the city. That means being in a super central location, where you can get to many places on foot without spending on Grab cars or taxis. Take the renowned blue Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion (as featured in the Crazy Rich Asians movie), it’s practically a three-minute stroll away. What about cafés, restaurants and charming kopitiams? There’s one directly across the street, and many like it nearby. Likewise, heritage sites, museums and speciality shops… the exploration of George Town begins at LOOP. Our selling point, of course, isn’t just location. You’ll find our modern guestrooms bright and cosy, perfect for relaxing after a long day (or night), equipped with free Wi-Fi and a fabulous bathroom you’ll definitely spend time in. All these, a 24-hour concierge service, our Monkey Kitchen dining and more, make our hotel the ultimate gateway and getaway in George Town. Come stay with us & join the LOOP!

Hotel looks good but accommodation not up to expectation. Bed is hard. Bedsheet and towel full with dirty stain. Yucks! Parking only limited to 10 cars if I'm not mistaken. Better than nothing. Very sad to see a beautiful hotel like this ending up with owner/management refuse to change or throw away stained/dirty bedsheet, pillow case or towel. 3 star to 1 star right away!

Avoid this place. Yes this hotel is new and looks glamour but only a shell. Cleanliness of this hotel is questionable. Towel, bedsheet, quill cover, pillow case and even mattress protector are all with yellow and black stain. If I haven't fully pay this hotel, I would. Have just walk out. REGRET I never did. I got housekeeping team to change everything for me, guess what, fresh out from the troley is still the same! I think they disposed easily about 3 sets before they can get a clean one to replace. Cctv recorded everything if you don't believe me. Aihsz.... Such a beautiful hotel but provide such services and clearness. Even house keeping staff also Shake their head. Bed is quite hard too but trust me, that is not what u should worried about...... I'm just keep thinking, how clean is this place??

Loop on Leith Hotel review. Checking in was not allowed till 1.30pm but we managed to get in by 1pm. Room was pretty small but clean. Narrow space between toilet and bed. Small two-seater sofa at corner with a table. Mini bar, safe, basic tea making facility available. No bathtub. Corridor from lift to room.. It is like a maze. We went hunting for our room in circles! Kinda noisy in the afternoon as I'm not sure whether it was the housekeeping or next room noises. Requested for a non smoking room, however i can smell smoke throughout our stay! (How inconsiderate of some people! Eedjoit!) Smart tv in room.. I get to watch Netflix! Didn't get a room with a view even though there was a window. It opens up to a narrow airwell adjacent to the other room and was decorated with swinging monkeys holding spotlights! Cute. Went food hunting within the vicinity. Very convenient, there's 3 lots of 24hours convenient store, Kheng Pin for Lorbak, Lighthouse cafe (beside Cititel) for dinner, Red Garden for more choices. Went to buy tiramisu cake for supper at Bread History 24hours! Checking out was fast and easy. Kinda pleasant stay. Rate: 7/10 because of smell of smoke. 😅

Booked this place with high hopes but was thoroughly disappointed with the cleanliness. They said they’re new but room looks worn down with water marks on toilet tiles, walls had paint coming off and sofa had stains. First room - toilet bowl was leaking, there was some rubbish (looked like a long cigarette butt) in toilet bowl too. Receptionist was polite, offered another room. Found stains (looks like blood?) and hair on bedsheet. Asked the housekeeping staff to change the sheets, said they’ll tend to us in 5 mins, waited an hour but they disappeared. We stayed elsewhere. Too tired to fight for refunds. Obviously none was offered, even tho I mentioned the situation to them. Wasn’t expecting them to anyways. I’ve treated it as bad luck, as if I have lost the money on the street.
