It's annoying that a room of 2 occupants are limited to only 2 devices for internet access. Fortunately, I bought a prepaid data card for my phone. It's very common for one to carry a tablet apart from his mobile phone. 1 small soap bar ain't enough. The room was clean and the morning newspaper each day was nice.

The Bayview in George Town, Penang is well worth the money $200RM / $45.00 USD. I have stayed here 5 times. Some rooms are better than others I'm sure that is common in all hotels. The staff is very friendly. We had breakfast which was included in the price. The location is awesome close to many restaurants, bars and Penang...

Hotel check in was OK, within 10 minutes we are in our room. Conditions are rather old but very acceptable due to proper maintenance. But air con is not cool enough. But main problem is the attitude of car park attendant, a very rough and nasty person. I tried to park at 2nd which is accessible to lobby lift, the...

This is a very nice hotel, with rather spacious rooms. It's located at walking distance from the center of George Town. The rooms are comfortable, and the staff is friendly, like nearly anywhere in Malaysia. There's free WIFI available.

Stayed here for 6 nights, about 200RM per night. White taxi from airport to hotel (make sure tell them it's Bayview Georgtown, the other is in Batu Feringghi) cost 44.70 RM (US$10). Rest of Penang trip we used UBER (app I've been using in the States) exclusively for about 15 times, cut fare to about half the cost each time...

Bayview is situated near the waterfront. Walking distance to Love Lane where all the restaurants and bars were located. It is not a flash hotel but service is great - we did not experience any issues with check-in or check-out. The Wifi also worked fine throughout. We had requested for a large bed rather than 2 single beds. Unfortunately the...
