I had a meeting in Penang recently and I decided to book a hotel which was close to my meeting place. I opted for Garden Inn since it is within walking distance to my meeting venue.
This hotel looks average from the outside and a bit run down. The receptionist was okay, not too friendly but not too bad. The first floor is a massage parlour and I was assigned to the second floor.
The lobby looks a bit dated and there is a cafe attached to it. No buffet breakfast provided.
The room is okay, it is clean but there were also wires visible which are the wiring for the electricity in the room. No wardrobe but there was an open one. No mineral water but they provide a water dispenser in the balcony.
There are several satellite channels for the flat TV which were not too bad.
Bathroom is also tidy and they provided soaps and shampoo. No towel though.
The bed was not the most comfortable that I had and the pillow was a bit thin for me but overall, it worth the price I paid for.
Recommended for a very short and budget stay.More
