Building renovation is in progress but it is well managed and controlled. The professionalism, courteous and effortless staff combined with pleasant accommodation and environment made our stay very comfortable. Couldn't be better. To be Recommended.

Blanket is very smelly, security not so good. However the front desk was very helpful. Need to improve in term of renovation.

In a great location, walking distance to malls and has street hawker stalls next to hotel for great cheap food. Breakfast ok, but basic. Easy check in and check out.

There were long queues at the front desk most of the time and the staff were kind of slow. However, they were very friendly and helpful. With this price, facilities and service are pretty good. The only complain was that the neighborhood was a bit busy and noisy. There were people singing loudly even way past mid-night. The good thing was that the location was very convenient.

Fantastic value for money. Beautiful room with incredible view. In-room internet was not installed yet completely, but still.....a very nice hotel just in the middle of Georgetown. We would come back any time!! Bo Brandsborg.

I was looking for a good hotel in Penang and think that the Sunway was in fact: value for money a very good solution.

Generally quite a good hotel. But the check-in is rather late. Only managed to get 2 out of our 3 rooms at 3pm. Besides, getting in and out the carpark is rather troublesome as you would need to collect your parking tickets everytime you enter and get it stamped at the hotel lobby before you can leave the carpark for free (since you are the hotel guest).

Perhaps it was because I came from Thailand where service is so good, but I found this hotel disappointing and bland. Especially irksome was the absence even of water to drink in the rooms. The location is good - but next time I''d stay elsewhere.

The location of hotel is very good - close to Komtar (central bus station/shopping mall/tourist info centre) and just 12MYR taxi fare to ferry. The room size is OK, the house keeping is above average, toiletries provided are adequate (hair driers and iron with board included) and the breakfast provided is also good (however coffee shop could get crowded in the peak season and it looked like they might run out of buffet items before closing time). There are plenty of eateries close to hotel to choose from suiting all budgets. Overall a value for money property whose location offsets the minor problems associated with the age of the hotel.

The hotel staffs had been helpful and prompt during check in as the hotel is running full house.The hotel room is comfortable with a spacious bathroom as well. Facilities in room are adequate and well maintained (happy to have the iron and safe box). The hotel location is perfect for indulging local food at reasonable price (taste even better than those offered in Gurney Drive), as plenty of hawker stalls found within walking distance, therefore saving travelling time. The hotel is near to KOMTAR (one of many Penang famous landmark).

The Sunway location is really great,in the heart of Georgetown. It is right next to a huge variety of eating places and other stores, and within easy walking distance of a big shopping centre. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable and of a reasonable size with superb views across the sea to the mainland. There is a good choice available for breakfast. We will stay again next time we are in Penang.

I found this hotel satisfactory. The room we were assigned had a very nasty stale odour which we discovered eminated from the bathroom. When we reported this, staff offered to send up service to clean--which would not have helped; however, staff were very prompt and gave us a new room immediately upon request. Staff service overall was outstanding. The new room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was a bit of a non-event. Western food is extremely tasteless; Asian food superb (but we''re not into eating curry and noodles for breakfast). Great location. Walking distance to Komtar and city. Not designed for kids but business travellers yet they kindly accomodated my wife and me and 2 small toddlers (free stay using FOC baby cot and breakfast).
