    Very clean and comfortable room, easy to access to the central of the town and famous hawker central. Walking distance (3min) to the street which full of pub and bistro. 15Min drive to Gurney Walk (if you know the shortcut :p).

    Parking is full during the wedding dinner ( hosted inside the hotel restaurant), and also the parking bay looks old and feel unsafety. The lift system require hotel guest to slot in the room key in order to reach the room's floor which is a very good for the security, but the floor indicator didn't show (guess is spoil) once you press on it which may confuse hotel guest whether the floor can be reach or not.

    Just a hotel nothing special

    No internet in the rooms, no safe in the room, no iron, the area around the hotel is not a place u wanna be

  • Family with children

    Location is okay if intend to shop around the town area with a good seaview

    Was staying at smoking level, this should be banned as smoking within the carpeted room can easily causes fire hazard.

    Good location: lots to visit and shop and eat in walking distance

    Bit outdated room interior, especially bathroom. But everything was functioning and the room rate was according to the accomodation

    This hotel is of a great standard, wewll maintaned and very central.The rooms are not large but very comfotable.Our room had a king size bed and flat screen tv with english channels and free movies.The breakfast buffet has all that any one could ask - local asian, Japanese and western food..

  • Older travelers

    Counter staff should always wear a smile on their faces and greet their customers. One or two were not so friendly. Evening staff were helpful and nice.

    the toilet is not so clean and some items are not there for the customer to use e.g hand towel, room slippers should be in pairs for couple......

    View towards e&o hotel and the sea. Decent breakfast buffet choice. Impressive lobby.

    No airport pickup/transfer service. So vague reception desk girl initially said she'd have to add mr75 to my bill for an airport lift. Later, a male rang back to book a driver for mr60 cash (paid to driver) - same as last year but still much more than you pay from airport to Georgetown. Very limited choice of English tv channels on small, now old- fashioned tv - time for more channels like cnn & hbo & Star Sports tend to be standard these days - as are flat-screen LCDs - even for 3* hotels & Cittitel purports to be 4*

    Strategic location is the main reason why I like to stay at Cititel Penang. It's located near the 3 big shopping mall,which is Prangin Mall, 1st Avenue, and Komtar. Besides, the staffs are very helpfull and friendly.

    The breakfast was really good, a lot of things to choose from. And the view from the room was beautiful.

    The room looked a bit old. I would get a better room for that amount of money in Europe. The internet is not free (although it worked fine and the connection was good).
