I am a big fan of the Hard Rock Hotels- and I have never been let down! Hard Rock, Penang is on the beachfront- walk out to the beach through the pool! And this gives an awesome view! Rooms are small - but they make up for it, in terms of service, facilities and activities. I wanted the Lagoon Deluxe...

The kids were having so much fun at the water slide pool. The service was good and room was very comfortable. We enjoyed the stay at Hard Rock and we are thinking to stay there again on our next holiday in Penang! Cheers!

I enjoyed my time in the Hard Rock hotel. The staff were so friendly and obliging, they would always go out of their way to help. A special mention to Ben at breakfast who would always recommend food and to sample, he would personally apologise if there was a queue too. The room is lovely, so comfortable and the bathroom...

We stayed in Batu Ferringi based on friends recommendation. I wouldn't rush back as you can't swim in the sea and that makes me sad. Having said that, hotel was good, people kind, night markets fun and Cheap!!

It's time to change the bed and the roll away beds. Especially the roll away bed, your back can fell the iron beneath the mattress. That's terrible. The renovation of the room is very nice. Since the hotel renovated the room, why the management did not put on a shade along the way to the gym and Rock spa? It's...

The room just nice for couple but with the price, actually the guest can get more than it was. If the hotel offers some amenities for guests, that would be better. The breakfast foods was ok but portion for omelette is quite big and what i can see is most of guests can't finish them because since it's buffet, the...

We had nice rooms overlooking the pool and beach which was nice. The rooms were spacious with good AC. Enjoyed the pool area but were disappointed to be told that we shouldn´t swim in the ocean. The breakfast was crowded and not very good even though there was a large selection. Friendly staff, specially in the pool area, and good...
