Stayed on the top floor with Ocean views of this wonderful hotel for 5 nights. Could not fault anything.
Location great, cleanliness top rate, staff very friendly& helpful especially Angel on reception.
Read a previous review that said it was "scrumptiously clean" had a laugh at that before we got there but as soon as we entered our room we realised it was spot on.
Will definitely be back.

The SAVV Hotel wast even here last time we visited Penang and family before Covid. Right down near the water on the edge of Georgetowns historic area and as close to everything as you want to be. SAVV is an environmentally friendly Business hotel, with generous size rooms , coffee and tea making and filtered water straight from the tap( saving thousands of plastic bottle every year). There is no restaurant, this is Penang so not needed with Hawker stalls opposite, a few steps up the road why would you bother? Friendly and helpful staff, we will stay here again. Next time we come to Penang.

Nicely fitted out rooms kept clean with daily housekeeping. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Located on a very busy road but the rooms seem well insulated from any noise. The small pool area is also nice. Walking distance to street art, komtar, etc. Grab easy to get from the hotel to other parts of Georgetown. Plenty of food choices around the hotel

I stayed SAVV Hotel from 31 Aug to 5 Sep 2023.
The hotel is favourably located facing the Chew Jetty area. I loved the convenience of the hotel being very close to the bus stop served by many public bus services.
Around the area, besides street food, there are many F & B services with very good reviews.
I learned that SAVV Hotel was converted from a commercial building. That kind of explains the uniqueness of every room. Housekeeper Ms. May, a long service employee, was very friendly and enthusiastic in showing me some of the rooms. A common feature among the rooms I saw was the cleanliness and upkeep. Excellent.
The Deluxe Room I stayed in was bright, large and spacious. Great view of the seafront.
Checking-in was a breeze. Ms. Angel at the Front Desk was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I learned from Ms. Angel that besides herself, there are also many faithful and long service employees.
I thought it was a great idea for the hotel to offer guests a voucher for a complimentary street food meal across the street during check-in. Indeed a great introduction to Penang food. I loved the char kway teow.
The period of my stay happened to be during the Chinese Seventh Month Festival otherwise known as the Hungry Ghosts Festival. There were much celebratory activities at the temples spread along the Chew Jetty area. Sound of gongs and drums and street operas can last till late at night.
The noise matter is not the fault of the Hotel. It was the period of my visit.
It will be great if the Tourism authorities can consider the possibilities of looking into the needs of the locals to appease the spirits and the peace that hotel guests seek when it is time to sleep.
I will surely stay at SAVV Hotel when I visit Penang again.

Dear guest,
Thank you so much for leaving us this detailed review of your recent stay at SAVV Hotel. We're delighted to hear that the hotel's prime location and the convenience of nearby public transportation added to your positive experience.

We are proud to have May and Angel as part of our Team, who, like all other team members, are passionate about the highest standards of service and hospitality.

We believe the complimentary street food voucher for our longer-staying guests is a great way to introduce them to Penang's distinctive cuisine, and we're thrilled you appreciated it. It is also part of our effort to promote sustainable travel, and we will try to work out something for all our guests.

We appreciate your understanding of the noise during the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival and acknowledge that it's part of the rich cultural activities in our area.
We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Penang.

Clean. Safe. Committed. At Savv Boutique Hotel, your peace of mind in our priority.

Due to COVID pandemic, it has been over 4 years since our last visit to Penang and stayed at Savv hotel. We were so happy to be back in George town and to stay at Savv hotel. Madam Saw, the hotel manager still remembers us and her staffing team leading by Angel provided us a great hospitality to make us felt like home away from home. The room is spacious, clean and with great sea view over the jetty across the street. The hotel is located at great location surrounded local eatery hawker stalls and great heritage buildings. We are looking forward to our next visit in Christmas and to stay at Savv.

Room tip: nice cozy place to stay
