Hydro Hotel Penang Guest Reviews (88)


Hydro Hotel Penang
4 out of 5

This is an older hotel and looking a little tired in places but rooms are big, beds comfortable, airconditioned, a decent pool and breakfast and easy access to a quiet beach which is unlike the busy main Ferringhi beach. The cheap clean airconditioned buses to the city, airport and main ferringhi strip stop in front of the hotel. The hotel price is a fraction of the bigger resorts so don't expect 5 star for your money, but it is a comfortable stay for the budget conscious who aren't too fussy about perfection.

The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The location is great, about 12km to Gurney Drive and located strategically in Batu Ferringi.

We reach the hotel at 12.30pm and glad to find out that the room was ready to check in.Normal check in time is 3pm.The room was pretty good but the air conditioning in our room doesn't cope well with the sunny day. Other than that everything was good.

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions, mainly because it is one of the more competitively priced hotels in the Batu Ferringhi area. The price usually includes complimentary breakfast and there is a hotel shuttle which takes you to the city centre or to one of the major shopping complexes - Gurney Plaza or Island Plaza. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious (even superior!). Most rooms have a balcony and face either the hills or the ocean. Amenities are simple so if you need more, bring your own. Free wifi is available in the lobby area and there is a swimming pool and gym facilities.

Clean, comfortable room with a great sea view. Since we came at low season, they upgraded us to a Superior room, which was quite spacious and appreciated. Breakfast buffet is pretty average, but acceptable. One "a la carte" meal was quite good but slightly pricey by Penang standards. Pool is OK with good poolside seating, and the little beach is well worth the 75+ steps to get to it...just to sit in the shade and enjoy the sea.

Exec Deluxe room we had booked was not to expected standard & we were (gratefully) upgraded. Property was extremely busy, so breakfast was CHAOTIC at best. Porter service was ABYSMAL. No-one to collect bags on arrival, couldn't/wouldn't organise a taxi on departure - waited over an hour! Local bus is cheap & efficient - just a few minutes to/from the night market. WIFI is charged and in public areas is conditional on purchase.

I had to wait for about one hour for check in.We travelled from KL on the car for 5 hours and were very tired and stiff. There were many other guests who were getting impatient and angry with the procedure. It was painfully slow and poor receptionists were running around like headless chickens . I have never seen any worse reception. Although it is a good hotel in a good location and other facilities are good I would not come back to avoid the same painful experience

The hotel was a very affordable option especially when there were three of us. It is a little way out from the main tourist area but at 10 ringit for a taxi its worth the quieter area. The pool was great as it was deep enough for my son to enjoy but not so deep as for us to be continually worrying about him. Our main criticism would be the restaurant which was very slow except at breakfast when it was a buffet. What ever you do never order the Fish Laksa its disgusting. The staff are very friendly and generally helpful. The wireless broadband to rooms did not work and at 10 ringit an hour it was annoying. the business centre was good for internet but only open till 5. Best internet option was down in the tourist area for 3 ringit for 30 minutes. Overall a good option if you are on a budget

BAD : The location is actually 4K from Batu Feringgi, busy dangerous road - no footpath. Hotel bar price £4.60 ( 23 RM ) for small 330ml bottle of beer, restaurant prices also much higher than normal price, Bar and restaurant almost empty at night. Not many bar/restaurants nearby. Beach nearby is quite small. Complimentary shuttle minibus to George town refused to take us with bags even when booked and empty. Will never stay there again. Good : Great room, regular buses(only 1 route though, national park to George town), good buffet breakfast, nice pool, friendly.

Great hotel, modern, clean, friendly and attentive staff. the hotel is a 5 or so minute drive from the main beach/shops/restaurants which can be annoying however a shuttle goes there in the afternoon. definitely recommend this hotel.
