    Nice budget apartment for family”

    Good price, nice place, good for children

    The service was good, for a 3 bedroom apartment the price is good, there's swimming pool in the area for children, 10 minutes walk to Queensbay Mall. What missing I think only there's no cooking pot available in kitchen and no daily cleaning service available. But I'll comeback to KVM Guest House again in future we visited Penang.

    Just like having your own apartment

    as one member of two couples looking for somewhere self catering in the south of penang, this apartment fitted the bill perfectly. it was clean and well furnished. two bathrooms helped and we made full use of the kitchen and jointly shared lounge. the apartments have a superb landscaped pool - another real bonus. in summary, this 'guest house' was ideal for us, no complaints only compliments.

    One of the room air con was not working, our check out time is 12pm but from morning ard 10am, we keep received SMS frm KVM guy informing us, we can check out earlier if we want. Ard 11:15, new tenant arrived outside our apartment and again KVM guy sent SMS to us for earlier check out. This is totally unacceptable, they should know our check out time is 12pm, we will leave at sharp 12pm, We certainly won't recommend our friends to stay at this KVM guesthouse in future.

    Price is cheaper than any other hotel

    We could not find the guest house so easily as it is not under the name as it is described. The guest house is inside villa amaz. And to find it out we have to call the owner twice. He has kept the room keys to the security guard. So nobody was there to welcome us or to show us our room. It is not a proper guest house.

    convenient location but limited parking space”

    apartment fully equipped

    Overall a satisfying experience but only a small disapointment over only 1 car's parking lot allocated. The unit comes with 3 rooms and fully air-conditioned.there is wifi connection and Tv with astro channels.Kitchen is well equipped.The only downside is I had to park the other car somewhere else outside the apartment. As I am selecting a 3 rooms apartment for accomodation,it was logical that assuming we would be using 2 cars for the trip.However there was only 1 parking lot provided for the guest although there were lots of vacant parking lots inside the apartment compound since it was festive seasons,and the other car which we had to settle for a small and very limited space outside the apartment or park at roadside along a already narrow road leading to the guard house.

    Basic Accomodation”

    General cleanliness standard

    This is the first time I have booked accommodation that is not from a normal hotel. It was because we have some work in Bayan Lepas area and this was close enough without having to go into Georgetown. It was a little weird for me to have to call the owner/staff to check in. Waited at the guard house for the owner/staff to come and bring the keys and show us upto the apartment unit. The apartment was ok... maybe even suitable for family on a holiday to Penang but certainly not for business traveller. Thing were very much like another person's home, some things not so well. Comfort level just ok. General surrounding was just not too suitable for a normal business traveller...ie some places clean some not so clean. Well maybe other may feel comfortable in a place like this, but our verdict was we would not recommend this place to our friends. Maybe it was just that we are not use to having accomodation arrangement like this.

So we only can check it with the management officers and the guard. However, they also can't help anything and the only way we can do is called the TNB staff to come over.

    Location, free WiFi, flexibility in checking in

    Apartment is not too well maintained - some of the marble for the toilet basin has broken off and showing the rusty steel underneath it. This is should be fixed because there are sharp corners which could be dangerous if we accidentally cut ourselves with it. The maintenance of the building is also quite bad. The lift leading to the apartment is very smelly. There were rubbish thrown at the lift lobby and was only cleared after 1 day. If budget is a concern, this might be a place to consider. If not, will probably not recommend this place.
