Tiring but fun

Easy access to walk around the town and street food at night if you are not too fussy about the surrounding. The smell & the experience, I was told is Penang. I didn't have any problem with my stomach. Must try the massage place across the hotel - Nagoya. I'm there every night after a long hot day walking around. Therefore the hotel is great. Very happy with it. Will go back again if I'm there next.

Great stay!

All are good except that the room do not come with slip-on slipper. Disappointed as the carpet seems quite dusty.

Couple

Booked a room for five nights four months earlier but the rate was later found higher than that was booked on check-in day. Our first night on 9/f facing to west was an unpleasant stay as the music from an open area karaoke lasted from 9 till 1 midnight. We requested to change to another room facing to the east with nicer view of George Town. There were ants crawling on the long desk so we told the receptionist in the next morning but ants were still there when we returned at night, until we had to call for housekeeper to disinfect the desk.

A Very Good Wonderful Stay

This is a beautiful hotel and deserves the 4 star rating. The staff were friendly, helpful and respectful at all times. The buffet breakfast in the morning was very nice. There was a selection of Indian dishes, eggs cooked to you liking, nice breads and pastries, salads and cheese, fruits and tea, coffee, juices and water. The buffet is worth paying the extra for. The location was handy too, walking distance to everything. I would definitely stay there again.

Very Good and Confortable Stay

I spent 3 nights at Sunway Hotel Georgetown with my family and we were all very happy with the time there. During the time of check in, I and my family were treated with welcome drinks. The room was newly renovated and was lovely. I stayed on a lower floor (5th floor) facing the pool; the view of pool/green trees / town at the back was still very good. The street New Lane in where the Hotel was located had a lot of street food stalls at night which meant dinner and late nite snacks for one would not be a problem at all. Overall, I would love to stay at this hotel again when revisit Penang in the future. Very good value!

CAT Free Shuttle Bus will not stop at Stop 10 near the hotel. Instead one need to go take the Bus at Stop 9 at bottom of Komtar.
