This is the third time we have stayed at Savv. This time we chose the studio unit. Even with an extra bed, the room was spacious. Apart from the immaculate room, everything else was still as good if not better. Same friendly faces from security guards, housekeeping to the front desk (Angel and Shukor, thank you). They made us feel like home, always accommodating, helpful and responsive. Thank you to the Savv team for making our stay safe, pleasant and comfortable.
The cherry on top is the hotel's convenient location which is just a few minutes walk to the Jetty B bus terminal where we could catch the free Penang CAT shuttle bus to travel around the popular places for food, shopping and exploring.

Outstanding hotel! We would stay again here any time. Lovely room, nicely decorated and appointed and very spacious Speedy Internet too. Location is excellent, close to the bus terminal and a variety of food choices. Breakfast was particularly good - we were very well looked after by May each morning, thank you.
It would have been good to have known about the local taxes and hefty deposit that was demanded at check in advance, however - hotel please note!
Otherwise, highly recommended!

Room tip: It is worth investing in the top grade room with balcony overlooking the pool.

All the staff were friendly and helpful from the receptionist to the cleaners
The ‘Cuti’ room was ideal for a solo traveller. Great location for all the sites There was noise unfortunately from a concert on the clan jetties for a couple of nights until 1:30 am but the hotel realised and upgraded my room to the back of the hotel for the rest of my stay. They were very apologetic about the noise although it was beyond their control. There is a small garden at the back of the hotel with a plunge pool which is nice to retreat from the heat. It’s a pity they don’t do snacks and drinks in the evenings. Would definitely stay there again

Dear Q7335Mglenns,
Thank you for taking the time for the detailed and excellent review. Team Savv is thrilled you had a wonderful stay with us and that we left a positive impression despite the noise from the celebrations at the Clan Jetties. It is part of the diverse cultural heritage surrounding the hotel. It represents the character of George Town's UNESCO Heritage site, a melting pot of cultural-historical heritage, which we hope the guests can immerse themselves in without much inconvenience.
We will consider your feedback on providing evening snacks and drinks to enhance our guest experience.
We look forward to hosting you again during your next trip to Penang.

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