I always say the staff make the establishment. The Sunway Hotel proves that point, as it is an average (midrange) hotel which is clean, efficient and adequate, but what makes it special is how great that staff are! From the concierge, to the reception, the bell boys, and the staff on club floor, everyone was so kind and helpful. Excellent...

Good Location, clean and nice comfortable hotel rooms but receptionist service and breakfast need improvement! Was given a free upgrade for rooms without the upgraded privileges that come with it, as my rooms were unavailable. Enjoy my stay, thank you sunway!

If you are game for Penang local food, this is the place. New Lane Hawker Centre (in fact road side stalls) offers you full range of local delights ranging from Chay Kway Teow, Chai Tao Kway, Heh Mee, Cheng Tng to Tao Sha Piah etc. Prices are extremely reasonable. There are good Chinese restaurants and massage parlour nearby too. It...

Hotel was recently furbished when we went there, great location for shopping food and sight seeing. Great food is just a stone's throw away ranging from local delights, western food at the Penang Times Sq. Pretty near to the unesco world heritage site and little India n more.

Sunway Hotel Georgetown is a generous host. Our family room for three had more than adequate toiletries for three, a very decent buffet breakfast for three, free parking, complimentary newspapers, complimentary biscuits, additional premium coffee sachets, and even free drinks in the mini bar. A very satisfactory deal.

Stayed at the hotel for six nights as friends have stayed there and stated it was pretty good. The staff are friendly and the premises clean, rooms are a good size and we found the wifi was quite good, probably better than a lot of hotels we have stayed in. Bathroom was a reasonable size but the plenty of room...

We were friendly welcomed and fast checked in at the lobby counter. 5/5. We got a room at the 11th floor, hill view. We ordered and received confirmation for a non smoking room, a pity that probably our predecessor smoked, there was a light smell of smoke in the room. 2/5. The room itself is spacious and clean as well...
