Hotel Sentral Georgetown
Ranked #46 of 87 Hotels in George Town
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This is a budget hotel where you can stay a night if you are - like me - traveling from Langkawi to Ipoh, specially for bus travelers because the station is close to the hotel, the other advantage is that it's about 10 min walking from the best restaurant in Penang which is Line clear serves the best Nasi kandar

We stayed for three nights. Staff was friendly, rooms was comfortable with good housekeeping and the hotel is a 5 min walk to komtar (Main bus interchange). The only problem is our room window faces another rooms' window so we do not have a view and have to keep the curtains shut most of the time. We did not take their breakfast as nearby the hotel there are many small 1960's kind of coffee shops with cheap and really delicious food. Opposite the main road (Jalan Macalister) to the hotel there is a street food hawker whereby the hawkers will start to set up shop by the side of the road selling their food from 5pm to late night (wed is rest day). In my opinion, it is better than Gurney drive and much cheaper. Hence, I would recommend first time travelers to stay here especially if you are taking the bus often to places of interest.

We stayed there 3 nights. Average hotel, small rooms, clean, good service. Price included breakfast which was very handy, and omelettes etc cooked to order. The hotel is close to restaurants and food courts. I would stay there again.

Pro:
- location is OK, just 5min walk to Kotmar but a bit far to Georgetown downtown. 10min walk to Jalan Kimberly/Jalan Campell, where lots of local food can be found. A small night food market is just 100meter away on the main road.
- Hotel car sent to airport service is reasonably charged at RM45 (vs. taxi ~RM40).
-free bottles of water provided in the room.
Con:
- only very basic and small room.
- WIFI is weak in room.
- towel in the bathroom is not that clean.
- wall to corridor is very thin so that noise in the morning can easily wake you up. There's also a mosque nearby whose morning preyer starts 5am which also wakes you up.

Room Tip: if you're light sleeper, you have to choose other hotels.

At all I luv to stay at this hotel n quite valueable n clean hotel. Just keep it clean like this. I stay at this hotel with hotel voucher from travel agents. Just one thing I so surprise is this hotel have many of friendly staff at every department but only one reception manager that talk a little bit unfriendly. Hopefully the hotel management can teach him how to treat a customer. I know that all walk in customer profitable for you then other like us who buy a hotel voucher or from other online booking. But as I known hotel won't work out without travel agents or online booking. So tell him that the word "WE CAN SELL HIGHER FOR WALK IN CUSTOMER. IF U DON'T WANT" to customer is very impolite n rude. Others...This hotel is quite good.

Clean and great service. Had a nice view of Georgetown. Any problems, the staff were there. Beds and sheets were clean. Complimentary water and a mini bar were helpful. The only few negatives are the toilet door keeps jamming and the walls need a new paint job.

Centrally located in a quiet street, Hotel Sentral Georgetown, lives up to its name. It is less than about 45 minutes drive from the airport. Hardly a 10 minute walk from the Komtar (Bus Stand) and the Shopping Malls of Penang. The famous Penang street food is just across the road. Rooms are spacious, neat and clean and well maintained. Service is prompt. The Buffet has a good variety of local foods as well as continental items and food is tasty. Staff is attentive and efficient. Good Wi-fi coverage in most rooms. Area is safe at night and plenty of shops for routine requirements are just around the corner. A lot of bad reviews seen on the net - but most of the negative reviews have to be taken with a pinch of salt.
Most certainly recommended for stay at Penang!

Room Tip: Specifically ask for non-smoking rooms.
