3 out of 5 stars
Both towels were musty. Basics missing - tooth brush and tooth paste. Severely understaffed during peak hours, took 2 hours to check in, slow moving long queue. Bar tenders mixing skills are below average - messed up simple cocktails. On the positive side, the view was good.

Value for money and great location!
Bayview Georgetown is an old hotel and I think it never refurbished. However, the location is superb with a lot of eatery around. Service is ok but need to expect it is an old hotel.

Old hotel
Location is good but the rooms are just too old and strong smell. it's time to look into refurbishment to attract more business or leisure customers.

6/10 Good

The location is very strategic. Every hotspots around Georgetown are just walking distance. The room was spacious and clean, the roof top bar is the best in Penang where u can see all of georgetown. However the check in process need to be improve, was standing for 40 minutes waiting for my turn. Arrived early around 1pm but was denied early check in and said all check in only after 3pm. My experience with other hotels, if room were available, customer would be given early check in. Come 3pm long line were formed and guests were left standing and wasting time waiting for turn to be checked in. Ive never ever spent this much time waiting to be checked in.
