Perfect for families, especially for elderly parents

Stayed here for 3 nights with my parents and it was a very clean, comfortable and excellent stay. Big rooms, efficient and friendly staff service. The king sized bed is huge and comfortable. Toilet is clean. The hotel is very well maintained and the breakfast buffet boasts a great choice of selection which made it very value for money. At night, the street below comes alive with a hawker street but do note that the hawker street is not open on Wednesday. There's a good foot reflexology shop opposite the hotel - great for soothing your worn out feet. Only draw back is that it is not as near the Georgetown attractions such as the clan jetties, museums and street art murals. On the other hand, it is pretty walkable to Komtar and Jalan Penang (where you can eat the famous Penang laksa and chendol). However, the service, the room, the cleanliness, the comfort at sunway hotel really beats out the location. Also, do note that there are a lot of great food along jalan macalister so staying here is actually a really good deal!

Misleading booking

The hotel itself was great but when making the booking I selected the breakfast option. Upon arriving at the hotel and wanting to have the buffet breakfast the next morning I was advised that it wasn't included even though it clearly stated this on the booking confirmation which I paid for... It was too late as we had our breakfast in the buffet area then were told we had to pay as it wasn't included. Quite disappointing.

Good Location

Overall I'm quite happy with the stay and location located at.. Right infront the hotel street is having local street food.. And few street down the road like 15mins walk there is shopping centers(I'm not talking about Penang Times Square) Let talk about hotel, the pic that u all saw which is no doubt it look the same and clean, just that the pillow is too soft which hard to sleep..(hope this u all may look into it) Hotel staff is friendly and nice.. Esp the room cleaner, I must give them a great thanks, they even put my dirty clothes into plastic bag for me.. Thanks Lift need hotel card to excess to ur room floor(this another good point which I like for safety) but just that sometime the lift card detector, u need to re-insert a few time then able to detect.. Breakfast is great and nice.. I'm staying for two days, both days serves same menu breakfast which make me feel a it bored.. Amenities wise is too little, only have gym/swimming pool/ and although it said is a lounge but to me 100 no lounge feeling but is a place for dinning..(hope this u all can look into it) Wifi wise I find is lack of security and is just only need a logging ID which is room number.. Overall I had a good stay and next time, I will stay the same hotel if the hotel overall standard is still the same...

Pleasant stay

To have access to the rooms we need to use the card reader to activate the lift. However there were times when without the room card we could activate the lift as well. So good idea but not fully secured. The rooms are big and comfortable and location of the hotel is good. Staff are helpful and polite.
