Very nice hotel, good food. All positives in general and very nice stay but unfortunatelly one staff member behave like the hooker, no respect that my husband got wife and 3 kids still try to hit on him even when he not interested, very pushy. And it was Malay lady Mardziah (Marr). Beware if you come with husband of boyfriend. Can provide the photo if you want to know who to avoid.

Stayed here for 3 nights during Hari Raya holidays in May 2022. Pluses : The Hotel is nicely located with ample free parking. It is a 5 star well maintained, well sanitised, neat and clean property. Ours was a superior room, very clean and equipped with all the necessary amenities.Bed was quite comfortable with crispy white linen. Bathroom too was pleasant. Good housekeeping staff.( Forgot to take the room photo.🙁) Minuses : Front office staff especially younger ones need to be trained to address the guest with courtesy. Once I called the front office to get something but was bruskly turned down by a female official without any polite explanation!! Breakfast was an average affair. The attitude of the cooking staff at Dosai, omlette counter was lackadaisical. They were passing the cold, precooked food to the guests. May be they were not in good mood on that day.😀 Overall, a good experience..

Front desk staff was friendly. Hotel room has the basic necessities. Room was clean and breakfast in the hotel is normal what you would expect. Only one shopping mall not far away from the hotel. Small rows of shophouses and various religious worship places not far from the hotel .

Well, I have been a regular to this hotel and I must say that I have always been pleased with their service. Especially with Md Yousof who goes to lengths in ensuring our stay is a pleasant one. Kudos to the team for giving their best and well done to the management for hiring these people. They reflect your hotel standards. In short, will definitely return soon and The Light will always be my first choice in this area.

Although the name of this hotel is called the Light Hotel Penang but the hotel is actually located in Butterworth, the mainland side of Penang. It’s about another 15 minutes drive to cross over to the island depending on the traffic as you have to pass the industrial area. Back to the hotel, it’s very clean and comfortable. You are immediately greeted with a friendly smile and the grand lobby. Check in was a breeze the the rooms are clean and comfortable. Just a quick note on the f&b, we arrived in the evening and was planning to order something to the room but changed our minds after looking at the prices, it’s a little on the high side… however plenty of restaurants just across the road, most notably the Victoria Station is literally just across the road from the hotel…

Trendy looking room with minimal furnishings, a bit on the dated side, with chipped bathroom mirrors. The entrance hallway is a bit on the cramped side... beds are comfortable enough. Good shower pressure. Fast and stable internet connection. TV provides choices between local and satellite channels, that being said some channels drifting in and out between working and not. I miss the classic hotel cable TV staple, Vision 4. It needs to be said. The room is afforded a great view onto the Seberang Jaya landscape via huge ceiling to floor windows. Although depending on where your room faces, this invites the scorching Sun to beam into the room, heating it up. And the a/c temps is unfortunately centralised, with only the fan controls at your disposal. Breakfast provided a great spread between local and Western options, with certain entrees switched regularly each day. The staff has been a highpoint of the visit, courteous, meticulous. Not enough praise can be given.

Room Tip: Utilise the heavy drapes during the day, as the sun is indeed harsh, and the a/c helps very little.

I spent 7 days here while I was on business trip. The room was spacious. The view on the city from the 16th floor is stunning. On the breakfast there are a lot of possibilities to choose from. The staff was super helpfull. Especially Mr. Yousuf was really friendly. He gave me a lot of advice regarding to the food, closeby restaurants and sightseeings closeby. I like that the Hotel is situated in the city center and the shopping mall is like 5 minutes by walk. The swimming pool area with the bar is luxurious. They have the live music concert there!
