Super 8 Hotel @ Georgetown
Ranked #56 of 87 Hotels in George Town
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

Good location. 10 minutes walk to komtar and 1st avenue mall.
Room is clean and large enough for 2 person in standart room.
For 2 night stay we get room on the 1st floor with window. Ac cold. Fast check in and check out. Cleaning service clean room every day and change the towel. Hot water in bathroom.
They provide soap and shampoo, instant coffee at room.
No safety box or hairdryer or refrigenerator in room.
But there is water dispenser near lift for cold and hot water.
In lobby there is small store. And tour desk.
Its hard to find a taxi in front the hotel.
Safe neighborhood.
From and to the airport by taxi 40rm for a half hour drive.
Some of taxi driver didn't know the hotel location.
There is famous hokkian mie 888 in the corner of pregrove road open daily from 5pm.
Over all its nice stay at super 8 hotel.

The hotel location is close to Komtar tower at appr. 5-7 mins walk. I've been to Penang before and I found this is great hotel to choose. Wifi was working fine while I stayed there (08Apr-12Apr). My room was big enough for 2 people stay, I like the hanger design in the room, and the bathroom was big too, they have 2 types of shower tap design which I can switch it over to another. I like it.
Here I'd like to show my appreciation to the receptionist --Ms Manju (Malay Indian), possess good customer service attitude, and always been very helpful. You should be a supervisor level employee and I hope you would be in the near future. There is a Chinese lady (not the short hair one) wearing glass, she's kind of reject my request whenever I need help, not a really good attitude, if I don't need help, why I come to you?~~
A little inconvenience in the room, that is no kettle in the room, I saw there is public one on the floor, and I believe they provide it on every floor which I think not very handy.

Room Tip: Great location to choose (close to local night markets)

The room was spacious however it has a strong cigarette odor + musty smell. The sink was leaking in the bathroom. Poor service from the staff. They don't seem to care about their guest nor even try to. WIFI was good in certain part of the room. The good connection is often nearest to the door. Good location. It is about 10-15 minutes walk to Komtar.

Not so pleasant stay for 2 nights stay. Check in late to a non-smoking room with heavy cigarette smell. Years like bed liner that need to be change and the bed are not so comfortable after a tiring day. As mention free wifi access in the room but you are amazed that you are not able to connect/ search the internet at all. Only good points is big room and great location which you need to walk 15mins to Komtar. You may have a good breakfast which a small stall located across the street.

I decide that I would stay at this Hotel on the recommendation of a "friend".

Take my advice, not as a friend, but as a traveller, and give this place a wide berth.
There is very little in the rooms apart from a TV that shows either local or Chinese stations and not very of them at that.
There is no kettle in the room though there is a Water Machine at the end of the corridor if you want a coffee.
There is no restaurant attached, though it looks as though there was one recently deceased, this is exacerbated by the fact that there is no fridge in the room so you cannot even buy food and keep fresh.

There are a couple of Malls within 10 mins walk.
Be aware that it is not the easiest location on the island to find a taxi either.

Definitely one to miss next time.

You can get better value for money closer in to town. Stayed one night then moved a bit closer into Georgetown for a room with better wifi and a cheaper cost. Rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean though, although walls very thin could hear traffic noise quite badly.

Wouldn't stay again, service wasn't very helpful, not great location and you can get better int he area for the cost.

So disappointed when walk in to room. The room door is open n inside is dirty if smoke mark. Check with the reception say the room door open is be course the early rental smoke inside the room. We ask to change room
the receptionist give a reason say she don't know how to change. The more terrible is she ask me to change on tomorrow morning. We just stay 1 night, the next day 12noon we have to checkout! Then say say no choice you just write a feedback then..
