A nice property to stay. Good location and walking distance for food and small shopping. Located at a busy area and quite busy at night as well. Rooms and toilets are bright and clean. Breakfast spread is good.

Four of us spent 2 nights in 2 rooms; hotel was able to give us exactly what we needed which was adjoining rooms on a non-smoking high floor, 1 with 2 single beds and the other with 1 double bed (which was actually king sized), by recommending we get the deluxe corner room and the deluxe room next door, which...

One of the older hotels in Penang. Great location. Very close to a lot of good food and attractions. It was very easy to walk around and explore the best part of Penang. The pool was great with a sauna and great views.

Check in was quick, efficient and friendly. Room comfortable and clean and more than value for money. Booked online and therefore expected minimal views... I got sea views . Beautiful. Hotel in excellent location for the heritage sites. Will consider the hotel again.

The main reason we chosen this hotel is the strategic location. Can easily find the best Penang food. Cleanliness is ok but we found an insect on our bed. Hope to see more improvements on cleanliness.

Just spent 3 nights at Cititel with my parents. My second visit. I booked the both rooms under my name. The next moring we found English newspaper hanging outside my door, and Chinese newspaper for my parents who in fact don't speak English. I had no idea how they figured it out but their observation and the customer-oriented mindset never...

This hotel is just at mid of Georgetown Penang, best for leisure stay. Hotel itself is accessible to reasonable price food nearby. It may be not really near to komtar or 1st Avenue but walking or free shutter bus still can make it. Heritage food is one of the main attraction. Not only location, it is not my first but...
