Great hotel just outside the historic area. Friendly staff, a business centre, large room, and great city view (ask for a higher floor with a view of the old town).

Great for public transit acccess - the Times Square stop is a 2 minute walk up the street. From there, you can go to and from the airport.

In the other direction is excellent and cheap street food. This was the "go to" place for dinner and fruit juices.

Room tip: Ask for a room on a high floor with a city view.

My 1st Sunway Hotel experience away from KL , my stay at Sunway Georgetown was Fabulous!
Sunny as the weather in Penang, the hotel was well kept and tidy. Everything was clean n perfect
Room booked was a Deluxe King room and room was clean n spacious when I checked in
Bathroom was clean and towels was also neat n ready for use.
Aircon was working well ( A relief from Penang Weather)
Location is great ! Just downstairs is Lorong Baru which is famous for the makan starting from 5pm till late !
Walking distance to Gama , 1st Avenue and Birch House !
Thanks to the Housekeeping Team at L9 , they are friendly and willing to help when asked to clean my room.

Check in was fast and easy. Really appreciate their service. Friendly bell person and receptionist, most importantly, the housekeeping team was efficient. Location is prime here, near to most of the attraction and it’s a stone throw away to a night market street. Will come back again!

Room tip: Friday would have a lot of traffic jam

My first visit was in 2016. On this second trip we’ve arrived in the evening on a weekday during school holiday, check-in was fast. Bell service assisted to transfer all the bags from the car to the room.

Room 514 (including wash room) was clean. Large, new and clean water kettle was very helpful !

Wash room: Clean. High pressure bath shower with consistent supply of hot water.

Have to admit that the hotel seem to be a little old which tend to happen with time and I felt their struggle to cope with the recovery from the lockdown due to pandemic, however their most important asset is the crews, they were splendid 👌🏾

The hotel is located conveniently at the centre, with nice and huge eateries nearby, convenience stores, easy access to other parts of GeorgeTown and many more.

My primary factor of selecting this hotel is for the affordable family room for 4, we’ve got spacious single bed + king bed. The stay was very comfortable.

Room tip: Skip the hotel breakfast as there are simply too many out there which are authentic !

Love this hotel so much. Located at Lorong Baru, a night Food street which selling a lot of nice local food. This is suitable for food lovers to hunt for local street food!

The room is spacious and clean. Staff was polite and friendly.

Will definitely come back for next stay!
