This hotel looks so much better on the outside, I really thought it would be so smart and well kept but it's actually a bit of a dump. The room was reasonably clean, but the furniture obviously hadn't been checked as there were dirty tissues left in the drawers.....yuck! The single curtain over the window was hanging off and the...

Love Indian food and really not fussed whether its North or South delights but Kapitan has the best naans in town! Its not dripping with oil nor rock hard to make it overly chewy. And the curries do not disappoint either. The vegetable claypot biriyani is a disappointment though. Couldnt find a morsel of decent vegetables!

It seems some people have confused this dump with the much nicer and more expensive, Georgetown City Hotel. There is NO pool, spa or airport pickup. I booked and paid for a 'Superior Single'. I'd hate to see a standard room, because this was a broom closet with a bathroom. I've been to Europe - I know what small rooms...

Location- Not the best one . You have to go to other lanes in order to take buses which takes you to the best attractions of Penang. I had a hard time to find this hotel in night. I came from Batu Ferringhi and bus dropped us almost 400 mtrs away but it was really difficult to find this hotel...

The first night was okay but room was dusty. The second day, all tv channels went off. Staff cleared the dust but merely said satellite tv was out of order when one satellite channel was fine.. They were merely avoiding the issue. They even offered to change my room but didn't keep to their promise. So yeah, dont bother. Just...

I stayed in this hotel for a night whilst in Penang. I had booked a Junior room which was too small. However the bathroom was clean n big. Service was very good, like for eg.

Jood07, 25 Feb 2016 | Read review
“Higher floors are much more quiet. Like most hotels, it is the type of guest that gives other guest opinions if the hotel is good or bad. If there is a problem with certain guest, let the front desk know about it so that they can do something about it. This hotel has a good record in dealing with such problems.”
