Staff were always polite and always greeting us with a smile and a good morning or afternoon, whilst halfway through our stay i celebrated...

Just stayed at this hotel, it's not a terrible hotel but it's definitely not worth the rating or price. It's a couple miles away from most major attractions in Georgetown. When we arrived it was chaotic with tour buses and lines of people waiting to check in. The bell staff was even frustrated and said that this happens every day....

Sunway Georgetown is an average hotel; location is ok but not the best in town. Found some hairs in the bathroom, definitely not ours. Most annoying thing was the door between our room and room next to us (see the photo, we had the one with the dot). It makes things quit noisy, you hear the neighbours cough, talk, argue...

Just next to Muzium Negeri. Location is good within walking distance to Penang Times Square, M Mall & Komtar. Street food hawkers at nite just outside the hotel. Along Jalan Macalister you can find restaurants, coffee shops & nasi kandar (one of Penang signature food) shops. But what struck us the most was the pleasant & awesome staff. Special mention...

This hotel is in a great location and it's accessible by foot to major shopping mall like Komtar and Penang Time Square, eateries and convenience store. For Nasi Kandar lover, there's Pelita Nasi Kandar located just 100 meters away and it's 24hrs. Batu Ferringhi is just 15km away from this location therefore it's worth a visit to their night market....

Newly renovated large room. Best is the benefits of a club room: breakfast and happy hour on club floor with excellent service. With the small increase group tours can be avoided almost completely. Happy hours snacks match a full dinner. Walking distance from: - Bus terminal KOMTAR - Mall 1st Avenue - Laundry Pusat Dobi Camy
