Its truly Bayview

Posted Jul 16, 2016
Pros: The memorable bay view from our room on the 14th floor. Its prime location in the historic Georgetown is an asset.
Cons: Infrastructure needs improvement.
Location: If you enjoy seafood then the Red Garden food paradise is two minutes walk.Other food joints, incldg. S.Indian, 7-8 mins. walk.
Our family trip to Penang was an enjoyable experience -- thanks to the location of the Bayview hotel. One needs at least a week to cover all the historic sites of the Unesco heritage site, Geroge town, Penang. For travellers on a short trip like us, the Hop-on bus came to rescue. In one day , however, you can cover only one route. We covered most of the city route so missed the other route and had to then depend on taxi for few beach sites. Taxi drivers, we met were reliable. Interestingly, we met the same driver twice - once when we reached Penang and was looking for a taxi, he guided us to the taxi that took us to the hotel. We met the same taxi driver (Malaysian of Tamil origin) late in the evening near Miami beach on the second day when we were caught in a traffic jam caused due to an accident and decided to return. He took us back to the hotel. It turned out to be a pleasant co-incidence.

Will return for a 2nd Stay

Breakfast variety was good. Room is big and spacious. 5 mins walk away to bars. Skybar in the hotel was okay, slightly pricey but really convenient.

小さなアリみたいな虫が部屋の中にいますが、神経質ではない限り、そんなに気になるわけでもないので、値段を考えたらコストパフォーマンスは悪くないと思います。 ただ、歯ブラシセットやカミソリがないので、事前に用意することをおすすめします。 朝食は十分な種類がありました。

Nice hotel

1. 房間清理員早上頻按鈴要清理房間。要改善! 2. 早餐餐廳口的那位大媽,如果訓練的好一點,會更讓客戶感到舒適。

Overall a nice hotel

Posted Jun 25, 2016
Pros: Location location location. Staff were friendly and willing to help with all needs
Cons: To be honest, breakfast was a little lacking in variety, and as someone who likes tea and coffee...this was certainly less than enjoyable.
Location: So much near by, but we visited the Time tunnel, the blue mansion, which is very close and really informative, and also fort Cornwallis.
Overall a nice place to stay with really friendly staff and facilities, if not in the hotel, certainly close by. Great location in the middle of George Town and easy to get around. Rooms were spacious and clean if somewhat basic, but certainly met our needs.
