We were there recently in Dec 2019 for breakfast on a weekend. But it was disappointing as there were only lilke 2 restaurants open for breakfast. And none served an English breakfast. It is a shame as I would guess many customers would like to have a good fry up on a lazy weekend.

Spacious and luxurious with a HUGE balcony overlooking the marina. he apartment is above a mall which houses a convenient Sam's Grocer. 5 star rating, reasonable price. Ideal for family,. The place is amazing. As the place is located in front of the beach, you can see the beautiful sunrise and sunset! Extra stars for that :>

Not a single table in the living room, no washing machine, not working air conditionner, when we arrived the apartment was not ready and they offered us another apart in another building and of poorer quality. It took them 1,5 to make everything in order but in fact nothing has been done. When we arrived the room temperature was 28 C and with full time working AC the temperature was not dropping down. The next day a team of workers came and they changed the Outer AC block. But 6 lamps are not working, they changed the bulbs with no success, the owen is dirty and nobody came to clean it (2 days passed after the notification). Ugly Indian style beds in the bedroom and in the living room, small table (supposed to the dining table) and 2 iron chairs (like you may see in a cafe). Stronly unrecommended to stay there.

Huge room, good service, surrounded by TESCO and restaurants, the Nyonya Restaurant at 2nd floor is not bad if you are looking for Penang Nyonya food. You can get Subway and KFC (TESCO). Recommended for those who are here to meet family members.

We booked our room through Air BNB. Check in was smooth as we organised to meet the owners Uncle at a specific time at the fountain out front. This could be a bit of a challenge without internet access. The apartment was a 1 bed 2 bath in North block on level 3 (pool level) which was great, spacious and airy with good amenities and spacious balcony overlooking the marina. We pretty much had the pool to ourselves everyday which was very peaceful but not great if you like a bit of action. Security and complex staff were very pleasant. Good selection of restaurants & small supermarket at the Quay although all on the pricey side for Penang. However, numerous restaurants, cafes & food-courts nearby along with Tesco in walking distance. Construction of the new island underway although did not really affect us with the double glazed stacking sliders it was very quiet. Also no mosquitos so could sleep with doors open if we wanted to. Good Wi-Fi but not much choice of TV channels, also standard of cleaning left a bit to be desired but all in all a peaceful, pleasant stay.

First, the positives - lovely, spacious balcony overlooking the marina. The apartment is very nice with all needed amenities except a hair dryer. The kitchen is complete with microwave, stove top and a built in oven. There is also a washer-dryer machine in the kitchen. Yes, cutlery, mugs, glasses and some pots are even available. TV and wifi works well (except the tv in the bathroom). The bedrooms are nice with comfy beds. One can walk around the marina and the boardwalk to enjoy the sea view. The pool looks all right. The negatives - we had a lot of problems with the elevator access key as 50% of the time it did not work. There is also no office to seek help or get/return key as one has to call the contact person. No Qibla indicator in the apartment. If you enjoy watching the sunrise and sunsets, this is not the place as neither was seen when we were there. There is also no sea breeze except early in the morning. The rest of the time - hot and humid. There are some restaurants but most sell alcohol and are not Muslim friendly (except for Pappa Rich). Overall- very upscale 'Mat Salleh' vibe about the place. Not for Muslim families.

I took the opportunity to stay at this self serviced apartment suites whilst I was visiting Penang . Booked the accomodation thru Agaoda.com The booking was done online n was fine ! The checking in process was tedious! One had no international data so it was hard to find out where I can obtain the keys to the apartment Thank goodness I have relatives that I could ring Agoda to get instructions n contact the person responsible to Hand over the keys! Suggestion made that the Suites should have a front desk manned from 2 pm to 5 pm for prospective clients to check in! The Suite itself is adequate but it needs mcrowave instead of a oven! The towels are a threadbare , need to have new ones! The Tv channels need to be cable! Had so much difficulty to have it rectified n still breaks down every 10 mins !!!!! N the internet was not turned on until I made several phone calls ! Location is excellent for tourists wanting a quiet , restful place to stay as they do have a good supermarket downstairs - Sam’s Gtocery ! I would recommend this place to stay but please improve on your checking in process , tv connections n internet availability

Area great with marina, restaurants and shopping great and anything else just a taxi/Grab ride away. However we were bitterly disappointed with our unit and the owners must be responsible for proving no repairs or maintenance over time. It is level 5 unit 2 so don’t stay there unless your happy with 2/3 star accomodation. Unit although supposed to be self contained had no glasses so after requesting and getting large tumblers bought our own wine glasses. No toaster so got old fry pan and managed to do eggs and toast in that. Linen and towels will not cope with one more wash, plug doesn’t come out of bath, no electricity outlets in bathroom, other electric points and lights don’t work, the TV in the bathroom doesn’t work but looks good, furniture weird and uncomfortable. It wouldn’t cost much to have a proper inventory done and repairs in keeping with the overall area.

Self-explanatory. It is located on top of Penang's first seafront shopping mall, Straits Quay Marina Mall. This place has the magical healing power that calm all stressed nerves down. Every morning and evening we can see people jogging or cycling around it while children playing and people come here to drink. Looking out of the window is just awesome, we get to see the yacht rows in the bay and some other cruises or ship that is at nearby water. This is the perfect place to stay if you need a break from the busyness of the city. Getting food is just easy, there are few different eateries downstairs. Snacks or groceries is also easy to get as there is one grocery store too. There is quite a few of pubs to drink at night too. Compare price first before enter. The room might be a bit smaller than expected, but that doesn't make it any less attractive, it is still a very relaxing stay. Will definitely comeback in the near future.
