"as regular visitors to penang, we try out different hotels and locations to get a feel for the place. sentral was a good experience and great value for money with their opening offers. the staff were excellent and thoughtful, bearing in mind it must be stressful opening a hotel and getting it functioning smoothly. they are succeeding well. it has a good reception area leading to a cafe which is welcoming and nicely organized. so many penang hotels are "tired" so it was good to have a modern room with nice furnishings and linens. the way the bed was made was the best i have ever experienced in a hotel!"

Hotel provides two bottles of drinking water daily. There's kettle and complimentary two sachets each of 3-in-1 coffee and tea bags. Only con is the stingy supply of toilet roll; one roll per day. Walking distance to Komtar (slow, leisurely walk takes about 20 minutes). There's free shuttle buses (City Area Transit aka CAT) near the hotel to Komtar with 15 minutes interval and a 24-hour Express convenient store within the hotel."
