    Convenient, Clean, Well-Equipped”

    WOW Hotel Penang is situated conveniently within walking distance from the tourist spots; Street Art murals, famous local restaurants, famous night markets and 7-11s. My partner and I did a 3d2n stay here at an absolutely worthwhile price. However, if there is anything I’d like to add; the hotel has more in-house facilities catered to children which is great for families. Example: Children’s gym and playhouse. As an adult couple, we were hoping for at least a mini in-house gym. Nonetheless, everything was great! Pleasant and friendly counter staff which helped us with our check-in.

    No elevator or lift to lobby, carry your own sinful shopping baggage 😅. No facial tissue, no WiFi because the connection is SUPER BAD unless in lobby area. Do not eating inside the room if you don't want to sleep with insects. Bring your own bath amenities. Good side was all receptionist are nice. Location is superb, must go to cowrasta Market and GAMA to buy cheap stuff . Just downstair got delicious chasiu hainan rice, my favourite. Cleanliness inside the room was OK but super noisy room, no sound proofing. Used earplugs and all good. Have fun in Penang.

    WOW Indeed”

    We got a room with bathroom. It was WOW right after we stepped inside. Love the rooftop area, games room, view specially at night. Location was amazing as we were visiting the TOP. Plenty to eat and see around. Kudos to all friendly reception staff.

    nice beautiful hip hotel”

    Stayed for 1 night love the interior design and the roof top. Very friendly staff never fail to smile and greet whenever they see us. room was very spacious too. very clean. would be great if they could provide complementary bottled water in the room. Oh ya the car park attendant guy was very rude seriously need to do something about him got into a heated argument with him. Other then that it was fantastic
