This is a good business and leisure hotel. The check in is smooth, the rooms excellent, I have stayed here several times and always got marvellous views of the sea. The room is smallish, but what the hell, I used it only to sleep. The fixtures were standard for a hotel of its type. Thier breakfast was a lavish spread and the service is good, the staff always smiling and ready to help.
You can walk out to many of the sights of Penang and even eat out in any of the marvellous eateries all around the hotel.
Only one small crib: I had dinner in the main restaurant. it was not great. The buffet was not available for some reason and the a al carte menu seemed unsatisfactory to me.
But overall , I would recommend it, especially for business trips.
