It is very convenient as it is very close to CAT free shuttle bus station. There's also red garden cafe just next to the hotel. A few minutes walk to St.Francis Xavier catholic church. You can also walk from here to chowrasta market. The room is spacious & clean, & there's bathroom with bathtub.

To explore Penang, Georgetown (the heritage) this is a good base to start from although there are many more hotels within this vicinity. Friendly staffs, well refurbish with good security lift to access room, firm bed and sufficient breakfast to get started without the extra. The downside, lack of parking space (if you are driving like most Malaysian), only bath...

Luckily I had a chance to stay at the hotel last September during my tourism project. What I was impressed about was the people working there! Every morning when I went to restaurant for breakfast, there was always a middle aged lady there smiling at me, which made me feel full of love already. And then on the other morning...

The room was realy nice and seemed newly renovated. View is fantastic and the concierge perfectly service minded and friendly. Great location with walking distance to all City center. Great value for money but skip the breakfast since it was nothing to be too excited about.

I miss my flight...so arrived late at Hotel Malaysia. I couldn't enjoy the facilities due to limited time. I only get to know from the reception that they provide free parking. Overall the hotel was fantastic and strategic location for food-hunting traveller.

didn't expect the room can fit 5 beds and still hv space to move about. most hotels are rather congested with little moving space. it's definitely value for money. however, the buffet breakfast can be greatly improved by having more varieties and choices.

We decided to give it a try due to the hotels location and booked ourselves in for 5 nights. The hallways looked unpleasantly old and was stained by mold from water leaks. The room was surprisingly new, spacious and clean. Despite the fact our room window latch was broken it was quite comfortable. There were two pillows in the bed...
