"Had a one night stay during my recent business trip. Everyone was saying that this is the best hotel they had ever stay of all the business trips we travelled around Malaysia. Back to this hotel, I would say the location is quite strategic and there is a shopping mall beside this hotel. This hotel is quite near to Penang bridge so if you opt to travel to the island for a visit is definitely not a major issue but provided you must have a car to travel around to try the local food. Hotel room is spacious, clean, modern, air-conditioner is very cooling, touch and go security to access to the rooms, free wifi provided, security box, breakfast was good and comparable to Cititel Penang and Bayview Hotel in the island. This hotel is a much better choice for both business or family vacation as compare to the opposite road Pearl View Hotel which is a nightmare for me."

"The process quite smooth as we no need to wait for host to come or any agent because all we do is self check in. Once you book the suite, the host will whatsapp all the details and instruction. We can access all the facilities at the apartment but got bit problem with the card as the lift cant really detect the card that I need to try for many time only can press the lift button. Quite lonely also maybe because of the apartment is new build one. Other than that all good. Will repeat once come to Penang again"

"It was awesome being a guest at The Light Hotel in Penang. It is not on the island itself. But for us this was a bonus because the surrounding was not so crowded. All in all it was a very good experience. Hotel/building, stuff, breakfast, environment were perfect. We really felt comfortable. We totally recommand this hotel."

"1.) This is not a hotel, is a personal properties that lent out like airbnb, so dont expect 24hr services like u get in hotel Good : Located in a very strategy place, near to gurney drive and george town. It might seen very far from penang hill on the map, but it is actually just 15 mins drive!! Room is super clean, it come with two room and one toilet. One room is attached with the toilet so it can consider is a shared toilet. Each room equip with fully functional air conditioner. Living room also got one air conditioner, super cold even in 3pm! The person in charge Uncle pang is a very nice person, surround the building got many parking but Uncle pang can reserve one parking for you too! Others : Microwave, fridge, Television with DVD player(No remote control for DVD player, so use ur phone instead. ) Bad : Since the toilet is a shared toilet, the toilet door should be can lock on both side, to protect privacy. The room attach to it cannot lock the door inside the room. The curtain of each room windows is drop down style, so it cant fully hide from outside, u can see through the room via the side of windows. Hence, privacy is not protected well enough. U can stick it to the wall by using tape though Anyways, I will still recommend to my friends but will recommend more if the windows curtain issue fix first!"

"Spent 2 nights and it's worth the stay in this Penang hotel even though the room is quite small. Near Komtar terminal and the hawker lane with Chinese/ Indian cuisines. They also have very friendly staff especially the guest relations officer (Martin is the name, I think) as he recommended places to go and speaks English very fluently."

"This is a very good hotel. I love everything about it - its central location, the wonderful staff, the hardware (nice rooms), the non-smoking policy, the local food and taxi stand right outside the hotel, the free CAT bus you can catch at Komtar... Sunway Hotel has a non-smoking policy, though in reality there is 1 floor that allows smoking. The management could take the stand of disallowing smoking totally and make Sunway one of the very few hotels in Penang that does not allow indoor smoking. If guests are found to smoke in their rooms, the management should take strict action and insist that the guests abide by the non-smoking policy (or checkout), and verify that the misconduct is not repeated. Sunway has very nice hardware; the rooms are renovated and look new and pleasant. Coupled with a non-smoking policy and enforcement, it should appeal to contemporary travellers. The staff was very friendly, helpful and customer-oriented. I did not find any hotel employee who was lacking in service. For the other reviewers who rated them negatively, I think you need to remember that it takes two hands to clap; if you smile and ask them nicely, they will reciprocate in like manner. I thought their service was excellent. Extra info on the taxi fares - RM45 from the airport if you purchase a coupon from the airport limo counter outside the airport terminal; RM40 to the airport if you just take a taxi outside the hotel. I am a contented customer and will definitely stay at Sunway Hotel again for my next visit to Penang."

"Since this property is still new hence all the furnitures in the room are still new even the water in the bathroom smells a bit weird (probably from the new piping) but I don't really mind about that. Everything was great, swimming pool is nice and the view from our room is superb (sea view and its amazing). The only downside is that they does not provide breakfast probably because it is a new building so they dont have that amenities yet. You have to eat somewhere nearby. If you own a transport it would be easy for you, if not you might have some problem to find where to eat. Anyway, I will definitely going to stay here again if I'm back in Penang. Recommended!"

"Stayed: 2 Night, Sky Terrace Suite Thumbs up: Chris meeting us upon arrival at the lobby & gave us speedy check in. Ensuring us for a room as we were early. Went for lunch & chris met us at the hotel’s restaurant( makan kitchen) personally to pass the room cards to us ensuring everything is all ready. Shanaka: for always checking up on my partner & i. Asking about the quality of the food & remembered that we didnt finished our nasi goreng even asked if there was something wrong. Went the extra miles to find a florist near the hotel that i could arrange for flower delivery for my partner. Beautiful room, nice view. Warm staffs from start to end. Truly a DoubleTree standard. The best DoubleTree in Malaysia. Staffs from JB & KL should learn from Penang as staffs here are way more warmer & friendlier. "
