One Night Penang ! A petty that I did not stay over the weekend. Short business trip to Penang, Excellent Hotel. Friendly staff @ check-in. Comfortable bed and pillows, good AC, perfect bath room, good view. Too much choice at the breakfast buffet, so nice and friendly great when arriving and leaving the restaurant, what can you wish more for a good start of the day. Hotel is located in the middle of George Town. I will be back !

Hotel's Favourite
We experience the best hotel hospitality since our arrival at drop off area. The security were very helpful. Check in process is very fast and front desk staff were very attentive. The lobby is well decorated which i like it very much. Our room is very comfortable and suitable for couple. We had a very nice breakfast experience at the cafe even everyone has to practise new norm. Me and my wife enjoy food variety and all food are tasty. The restaurant was packed on Saturday morning, so its better to come early before 9am. We had a pleasant stay here and definitely will come back again in the future.

Executive suite was spacious, well set up & spotless. Club lounge was a great place for a quick afternoon tea and pre-dinner snacks if you are feeling a little peckish. Breakfast is adequate. But AC at Jen cafe was too cold to enjoy the breakfast, so a little warmer will be good.

Floor tower and bath towels place together! Requested a new set of bath towels. Housekeeping showed up, and took back the towels / floor towel but did not apologize. On the positive notes. The bathroom water was clogging during first night. Upon complaint it was solved on the next day.

A wide variety of great food is served in the Club Lounge during cocktail hours. There is a good selection of liquor, wines and non-alcoholic beverages. The atmosphere in the lounge is cozy enough to end a nice evening. The lounge executive, Ms. Lena, always shows herself to be very helpful when it comes to meeting the needs of her customers. She is very proactive, attentive and sincere in providing her services during the busy lounge hours. The concierge staff is always very hardworking and embrace the Shangri-La values of respect, humility, courtesy, helpfulness and sincerity very well. Keep up with the good work!

The Lobby lounge is best place to relax & chill and enjoy the food, we stayed across the hotel and we crossed over to Jen hotel lobby for our lunch & dinner 2 days in a row as the food is reasonably priced and the staff especially Nisha hopefully I spelled her name right is very attentive & friendly, Good staffs is hard to come by now days.will definitely come back to the lobby lounge again on our next visit .

This hotel was clean and comfortable, located near the komtar which was fine as it is easy to get around Penang using grabs. The breakfast spread was fine. The pool was functional but a little dated. The service staff was professional and helpful.

I have booked few rooms for families trip when my relatives come to Malaysia for a visit. I have recommended Jen Georgetown Hotel because it was a strategic hotel and good value hotel when I stayed with them few times back. My family was tested positive with Covid on travel date and we have contacted the hotel to refund for 2 rooms while the rest of my families members continue with their stay in Jen Georgetown Hotel. The hotel has processed refund for 1 room however they has extended my stay for 1 room to Dec2022. This is weird but the new reservation has flexible cancellation and I accepted the new booking. Fast forward to Aug22, I contacted the hotel to cancel my booking and get refund. The hotel management has made life hell and starting to push me around to talk to travel agent where the original booking was made. While travel agent claimed they cannot refund without hotel’s approval. Hotel management asked for reason why want to cancel the booking and supporting documents to proof my reason. This is unprecedented for Shangri-La brand! After dozens of email, I have to lodge a consumer tribunal filing before it gets serious attention from the hotel manager. The manager claimed there where some miscommunication with the travel agent and system glitch in their reservation. Finally they has refunded but caused trust deficit by loyal customer. The management team has not empathy and turned a dead ear to customer problem. I am done with this hotel.

The rooms weer fine, smaller then they seemed in the photo’s but they were okay. But the pool is old and worn out. There are pigeons and poop on the terrace. The picture of the pool on the websites is not like reality.
