Hotel Penaga, Penang, Malaysia
A trip back in history
This hotel is an absolute hidden gem. Centrally located and all major food escapades were within walking distance. The decor is reminiscent of old Penang and I absolutely loved the touches. Service was great. No complaints and definitely will come back again

Excellent hotel in great location.
A great Peranakan style hotel offering comfort, excellent service and close to sights and food markets. The only negative was the faulty air-conditioning which took us a while to discover. It was fixed after several goes. Highly recommended.

OK hotel but terrible service
As colonial hotels goes, this one was quite nice if not a little musty and dark. The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable but you couldn't open the windows to let in fresh air. I can't comment on the facilities (pool and restaurant) as we didn't use them. The service was pretty shoddy. Our check-in was awful - rooms not ready and on different floors (I booked 2 twin rooms at the same time) and then our room had a double bed in it. When we advised this was not acceptable it took a long time to rectify this, the third room we were finally shown was an upgraded room. We thought we'd be able to finally start our long weekend break only to be told the following day that when they charged my credit card for the airport transfer, even though they had advised they had included the council and tourist tax it appears they forgot to actually charge me. Not a massive issues - these taxes need to be paid and so we have no problems with paying them - but on top of everything else it was just a bit much. We were 4 female friends spending just 2 nights in Penang and felt a lot of time our time was wasted with trying to rectify mistakes made by the hotel staff.

Excellent Hotel
Great hotel. Stayed here many times. Some traffic noise but that is unavoidable in such a prime location.
