Penthouse Hotel
Ranked #13 of 30 Hotels in Koror
Reviewed 19 August 2012

Penthouse is located in the center of Koror right across the Town Mall. It's a convenient Hotel for those who love to eat where restaurats are just a walk away, whether it be Japanese cusine, Korean, Asian or local favorites like BEM ERMI a burger spot that I highly reccomend. I've stayed in The Penthouse and ate at the restaurant located in the lobby area i got to say their food was awsome. My stay at the Penthouse was a great experience being that the staff members were so friendly, my family and i enjoyed it so much that a return to the hotel is a guarantee on our next visit.

I have stayed at the Penthouse 3 times now and it is simply a really good hotel for business travelers. The rooms are large and the beds are really comfortable. The rooms are also spotlessly clean. The hotel is very centrally located and is just minutes walk from stores and restaurants. They recently raised their prices but I still stay there. There is a small exercise room. There is free wireless internet which works adequately. The restaurant is not the best but they do room service which is convenient. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Large rooms with king size bed at the front of the hotel

hotel is in a good location, reception is gentle but not "warm". Definately the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on!

My stay at the Penthouse was all I could ever ask for and more. I went with my dad a week ago and we didn’t expect anything too fancy, since we didn’t pay much for a room – an average $100. We were surprised about how much we enjoyed the stay! The rooms were clean, the staff was incredibly friendly, and the restaurant never disappointed. The hotel is right in the middle of Koror, so you are just a two minute walk from the grocery store and souvenir shops. Free wifi is offered in every room and there is a computer to use for free as well on every floor. The hotel also has books and magazines (recent ones!) that you can borrow to read. The food in the restaurant was unbelievably fancy and cheap!! A huge breakfast was only $6.50 total. Juliette, the reservation manager, was extremely friendly and responded to all of our emails regarding the hotel before the trip. She even invited us for a dinner the last night of our stay. Transportation to the airport was provided, which was on time. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Don’t even spend time looking at others, because the Penthouse offers a luxurious feel for an inexpensive price!

This is the high end of the non-resort category. No pool, just a very nice room and the services you would expect for something at this price point. The "gym" is just some jogging machines in a spare room. Convenient and reasonably priced laundry, with a do-it-yourself option.

The restaurant has quirky decor, but very good American breakfast (blueberry pancakes!) as well as some local and Asian options. I didn't have dinner there but was told the food is good.

Free wireless internet throughout the hotel, with a faster connection on a fixed line in the lobby of each floor.

Good service. My room wasn't ready despite checking in at 5pm, but they were nice about it and comp'd me a drink at the bar. Nice touch that the 5 star chains often don't think to do.

The beds are soft -- very soft. I happen to like that, but if you prefer a hard bed then you should check with them to see if they have that option.

This is a great hotel if you want a comfortable place to sleep and eat, but you are out touring during the day. It's not a place for hanging around. No views or anything like that.

GREAT massage place right across the street! Chi Yuen massage can arrange an hour oil massage for US$20. Clean, super nice people, and great massage.

Located within easy walking distance of several major shopping centers and many restaurants serving Japanese, Korean, Indian, Thai and Western food. Seems to be mostly used by businessmen and consultants. Nicely furnished, good sized clean rooms, quiet air conditioner, plenty of hot water. Pleasant staff and decent restaurant with way too tempting desserts. Airport pickup and delivery if notified in advance. Wifi in the rooms which varies from snail speeds to good enough for video Skype. Of the mid-range hotels in downtown Koror, the Penthouse seems about the best overall. For the tourist looking to dive, it is fine as a place to stay but you will need to arrange with a dive shop yourself as there is no tour desk. But the front desk does have the numbers of tour operators and dive shops so you can all and make arrangements without much trouble. They have a small event room suitable for 20 or 25 people and a "fitness center" with an old treadmill and a few dumbbells, not very interesting. There is no formal "business center" but the hotel office is across from reception and can assist with copying, printing and such.

Room Tip: If you want reliable WiFi, stick close to the stair well, not way down the hall.

We stayed at the Penthouse in Koror because we were arriving in the ealry hours ( 4am and after a long flight for the Uk via Seoul) we arranged a hotel pick -

but no one from the Penthouse arrived to collect us!!

This could have been a very stressfull start to our vacation, however a friendly driver from 'Fish and Fins' diving tours happened to be at the airport and gave us a lift to koror and to our hotel door (many many thanks to Norman!). The desk staff were apologetic at the Penthouse. The hotel is very clean and comfortable and cool (the beds are fantastic and soft) and the food is very good and at a good price. There is a beauty palour with a good massage service and beauty treatments.

Our 2 day stay was good due to the location (2 mins to all main attractions of Koror ) and we moved on to the Big Island. We did return for the last night in The Penthouse and they did deliver us on time to the airport for our early morning flight home.
