Love this hotel. My wife and I stay here every time we visit Penang. Facilities are new, and well appointed. Atmosphere is calm and inviting. We had a minor issue during our latest stay, but after a brief comment on their survey, their Executive Assistant Manager Christine immediately responded and got the problem fixed. Love the service!

The amari spice more than met my needs while working in penang. It’s in a great location near the industrial areas and provides a totally first class experience . The gym and exec level are superb plus dining quality equally good . Will always use for my visits to penang in future when I need to be near the industrial sector

Short drive from 2nd bridge, stay from 28 Mar to 30 Mar 24 in one bedroom suite. Fast check in. Great city view. everything is fine. Great executive lounge too, thanks Kim especially for his hospitality and details explanation on drinks. There is also a good food court opposite the hotel with lot of food varieties. Hotel is surrounded by rather busy roads. Rooms to improve most will be the Amaya Food Gallery service. Had breakfast there on 29 Mar morning. Guests were not seated by attendants but had to find their own tables. Sat near to the noodle station. I was waiting to be served. There was no chef or attendants for around 40 minutes, from around 7.48 am to 8.30 am. Many bowl of noodles were left by guests on the table too. Water over boil. Saw heavy steam at the station. Other that that, overall experience was ok. Will visit again next time.

One of the bests hotel I have been , enjoy wonder perks like special assorted chocolates on your table when you check in . Rooms are already cooled before you stepped in . Staffs greet you from their hearts with a hand gesture placed near their chest . Which warms your heart instantly . Ambiance are superb, elegant deco with high ceiling and awesome lighting and display . Gives you an exclusive feeling equivalent to a 6 stars hotel but with a fraction of the price . Breakfast has good spread from Asian Chinese noodle soup to Indian Tosai with great tasting real tomato chutney ! Nasi Lemak with fried chicken and rarely seen fried quail is my favourite! Every corner is sparkling clean and the dine in menu is super interesting too . Nasi Goreng with satay ! So yummy ! Extremely well managed . Double thumbs up . Highly recommend for business or holiday . I chance upon a new staff name Kim and he speaks very good English . So language is not an issue unlike some hotels you need to repeat a few times to get what you want . Worth trying !

Stayed here on a work trip. The hotel exceed my expectation of a Malaysian hotel. Right from the lobby, the staff were very attentive. The serve-yourself-ice-cold drink at the lobby was a lifesaver when I was arriving from the airport and each day when returning back from work. The standard room I stayed in was wonderful. I especially liked the walk-in type closet and the flip top safe (means I can see everything I put in). And the pressure from bidet was strong. My window looks down to the garden of the convention centre, which was great. My only dislike was the bed (which was too soft for me), and the glass table (which was not only cold to touch but also bad for an optical mouse). The breakfast was great too… much better than other Malaysian hotels I have been. Unfortunately, there is not much near the hotel as it was built to cater to the attached convention centre. I know there is a few restaurants at the centre so I headed over there for dinner on the first night. But I discovered that there was a local hawker centre just across the street, which also has a provision shop, pharmacy and a dollar store behind it. Would stay here again for work because it is just a comforting place to come back to after a long day.

Very quiet, clean room, vast choice of food for breakfast. Pool and gym to relax for those who need to move after / before workday. Very fast internet. In general - a great place for business stay. A bit far from tourist attractions - those are available easily via taxi, but not on foot.

Kim, staff at executive lounge had one of the best service attitude. In fact I have travelled a lot across globe, I would rate staff at Amari as amongst the best. Only hitch was vegetarian options at the hotel. So I ended up eating roti canai at breakfast and char quay teow for dinner for consecutive 7 days (with exception of one day where I got dosai in breakfast 😄). Overall good experience.
