Room size is quite small. Only have a small space to perform Solat for Muslim. The towel bar is quite high for me. So it's quite difficult to hang the towel. Room service is very good and the staff is very helpful.

Based on other reviews on this site we selected the DR Hotel as airport stopover , we were spending the weekend on Langkawi Island and needed accommodation near the airport and somewhere to leave our bulky luggage as we didn't want to lug it over to the island. Therefore we took a small overnight bag with us and left everything else in the room.
So that we did have some space in the room we opted for a family unit ...1 double bed and 1 single bed which provided the space we wanted (although it was still very tight). The WiFi was fine, we had a ground floor unit which suited us totally. The reception was helpful, the toilet/shower floor got very wet as there wasn't a partition between them. If you're staying there and want some great Western food , there is a very popular restaurant called "Gathers In" (correct spelling) right next door, we had dinner there twice, Fillet Steak, Braised Lamb Shank, Roast Chicken and Spaghetti Mariana ...which was cooked to perfection and tasted great....so suggest you try it.

Overall, its tagline 'the best boutique hotel' said it all. It is a newly operated hotel (about four months) so the facilities are in the good condition. The staff performance is above the par and they attend to your concerns patiently. Iron and hairdryer are provided so you need not to worry about bringing these two items while traveling. Also, free wireless connection in the room is superb!

I still believe that the hotel management could improve in terms of duvet/blanket cleanliness. Just a tip - you can consider to book superior room instead because standard room is too cramped.

Budget hotel but considered as Boutique Hotel
Very strategic and convenience place as restaurants and alfresco just walking distance
1.5 km from the Penang International Airport
Near to visiting places such as Snake Temple and Penang War Museum
Near to shopping complex such as Queensbay Mall, Sunshine Square and Bukit Jambul Complex

We booked through the internet, big mistake, the nightly rate is much cheaper if you walk in. DON 'T book online.

We reserved and paid for a superior suite, we were checked in to their most basic room, not the one we paid for. The room was very small, very hard for two people and luggage to move around. Room was dirty with lots of hair in the bed and bathroom. The mattress states 5 star but it's definitely not, there was no padding at all just all springs.

We asked the front desk about the room we paid for and they said that management told them to check us into this room and they confirmed that this is not the room we paid for. They finally switched our room which was not much better, again dirty and stained sheets and a dirty bathroom.

I would not recommend staying here, it's too expensive for what you get. The area is all hotels so there is a lot to choose from. Don't stay here, it's a terrible hotel.

The room was incredibly small and no window. There was an uncomfortable smell and a few insects. The wifi was very good. I think the price is too high for what you get, it is only a good choice because of its convenient location (airport). I didn't see the other rooms, maybe the bigger ones with window are better.

If you need a crash pad in Penang as you transit for an on-going flight, this is not a bad place to do it. Quite close to the airport, they give a straight forward deal. Rooms are tiny but mostly full of bed, so if you have a large party, it's not difficult to sleep here. No elevator! Be warned if you have a lot of luggage but the young guys are the desk are quite energetic and helpful and will bounce up the stairs with your luggage, no matter what time of night it seems. We found out it cheaper to go directly to their website and book your stay, instead of through a third party vendor, only after the fact.
