This small hotel, tucked away in Pulau Tikus, Penang is a gem! I was lucky to be upgraded, so I had a one-bedroom apartment - complete with kitchenette, fridge/freezer, and lots and lots of space. Parking is not a problem, and I love the fact that it is quite central without becoming embroiled in endless traffic jams. Lots of shops around to get whatever you need. Will definitely stay here again next time I am in Penang.

We stayed at a studio suite in tropics eight (room 805) for a week during our visit to Penang. The hotel staff are lovely and very accomodating, our room had a fantastic binder with all the information we needed to know about tropics eight, Penang tourist destinations and bus routes to get to them. Our studio was spacious and the bathroom was clean. The sofa was comfortable as well, and the location of tropics eight was perfect for us to walk to nearby places. The laundry room was very useful, but we unfortunately had to wait a while to do our laundry as only one machine was functioning during our stay. I only wish our room had a window instead of a small balcony so that we could have enjoyed the view all day long. Overall, it was a great stay. I would no doubt return to tropics eight again.

Checked in at 3.30 pm to an uncleaned suite. All bins were fulled with rubbish. Bed was not made and towels were everywhere. Basically the room was not cleaned after the last customer checked out. Called receptionist to assist, he said to wait for housecleaning to clean the room first. Obviously i couldnt wait coz i checked in on time, not earlier. They should have prepared everything before hand. And with a 4mo baby, am definitely have no time to wait for the room to be cleaned. Receptionist was also reluctant when i requested to change room as he said all rooms of same rate were full 🙄. Only after i started to marah marah then only they gave us a new room. Basically just dont go here.

What you see is not exactly what you get. Booked for a day. We booked for a room for 3, but the cups, coffee and tea provided were only for 2. Room we got was facing the cemetery, which wasn't an issue because we only realised it the next morning. The real issue was the noise, as we are facing the main road, all cars driving by could be heard clearly, even up to 3am/4am. Sleeping quality was bad. Some wood panel in the room were falling off. In the bathroom, the hose of the bidet was leaking and thus non easy to use. The unit is spacious, the bathroom is spacious, everything is fine at a glace, but not really if you look at the closer.

The front counter staff was extremely rude and allowed other patrons to cut the queue and raises her voice when voiced my complaint about this lapse in service. the staff in question was on duty at 1620 hours. Ruined my entire check in experience. Perhaps should be reduced to a 1 star establishment for this lapse. Havent seen the room yet and extremely displeased.

Stayed here recently, family booked it. I would say our 8th floor room DIDN’T FEEL GREAT. Colour scheme too dark and gloomy for a room that faces cemetery, bathroom mirror lighting position makes me feel like I’m living in a ghost/horror movie every time i look at the mirror (as lighting was from below). Room also feels a bit spooky as the shower lights flickers only when showering, midnight can hear “someone” playing with aircond and switches and furnitures moving in the living room. Extremely bad sound proofing too. Carpark extremely tight, very troublesome to access - must check in first to get the access card, B2 lift area is not for the claustrophobic. Reception couldn’t be bothered to help with our luggages. Thankfully only 1 night and we left immediately before sunrise. There are better hotels in Penang. The spacious room couldn’t compensate to the bad feeling we had in this room.

Worst experience ever! Totally not worth the RM250+ per night stay. Poor housekeeping: 1. No bath towels, hand towel, box tissue provided upon check-in, you have to ask for it yourself 2. No housekeeping. Found our room not made up after spending a whole day outside. 3. The bed linen covers half of the bed only, how strange it is, and feels a little bit dirty 4. The blanket is uncomfortable Room: 1. facing cemetery (wish I knew it) 2. Facing noisy street (all night even at 3am) as my room is on the 4/F 3. There is a shallow balcony but you don’t want to go outside as it’s full of birds popo, guess it’s never cleaned 4. No separation of the shower area and toilet, which I don’t like it Facilities: 1. There is staircase in front of the hotel, not friendly for those carrying heavy luggages as you have to lift them up yourself 2. Gym & laundry placing together. Don’t expect to gym there because the air-con is malfunctioned. It’s just not a proper gym place. Staff: not welcoming at all, some are impolite

We stayed two nights 26-28 June. 1. Our room access was terminated on 27 June as they thought we stay only one night. Getting key replacement was a hassle. We waited quite long. 2. One of the reception staff deliberately gave us wrong email address for complaint. Was given xxx@tropicssuite.com instead of xxx@tropicseight.com after we said we are going to complaint about him having no eye contact at all and being no manners. 3. WiFi is totally unable to connect at room 702. Reported upon check in but nothing done to rectify the non connectivity. 4. On our second night, around 1.30am, there were loud noises came from upstairs. Guests were having party till 3am. The hotel management didn’t do anything about it. Room has no sound proof. 5. Leather sofa is a bit old with leather chipped off. Other than that all ok. Clean and spacious.

We arrived at around 2:45 and the staff there asked us to wait until three o’clock before we can get the room. We then went out for lunch and back at around 3:15. Another staff told us that we have to wait for another half an hour. The reason they gave us was the hotel was fully booked that day. However, I don’t think that is an acceptable excuse. Finally we got our room after around twenty minutes. The room is spacious and located next to the laundry and Gym. It is stated that the laundry and Gym will close at 9:00 but actually it is not and we can hear door closing and other noise as we stayed next door and the wall is thin. The bath room doors have to be fixed to avoid creaking sound. The water tap is loosen. Hopefully they will improve all these and make the hotel a better one.
