“Nice Hotel - recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

I would recommend the Bayview Hotel Georgetown to anyone visiting this area. Great location, nice rooftop bar, relaxing pool area, hot spa, friendly check-in staff.
We stayed at the Bayview for 3 nights and it met all our expectations. Rooms were spacious and immaculately clean. We requested a non smoking room and that was what we got. Congratulations to all staff at the Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang.

The bayview was consistently good in all areas. We stayed in a superior room which was nice and spacious - good size bathroom although shower pressure was average. Strange thing was the cleaning of rooms in the afternoon - as we hit the streets in the morning and like to rest when the day is at its hottest so that did not suit us. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice - the bread and butter pudding was excellent - should have it every morning! The pool area was good with 3 pools and plenty of room - although the pool area could do with a makeover - needs better quality sun lounges and a few umbrellas. Staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful - you can always tell a good hotel by the quality of the people on the front doors and the bayview staff were very good - good advice, always smiling and good for a chat! Reasonably close to most things - 20 min walk to komtar - where you can get anywhere by bus in penang - and plenty of markets / eating places close by. The bayview is a good , consistent hotel in all aspects and I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a steady , quality performer.

I went there for 5 night for a course study. The room is big and really comfortable, also the bathroom is nice. There is an iron in the room (which i really need everyday to have neat clothes haha). Breakfast and lunch is amazing, I love the ice cream freezer and Roti jala/Roti cane spot in there. Would love to come back if I go to Penang again.

Room Tip: If you can, book the room from the booking site lika Agoda or Booking.com, and if you are lucky you...

Good location for business travellers as there is a rooftop bar at the 6th floor. The scenic view is fantastic and cozy place for discussion. The revolving restaurant revolves till 9pm only but it operates till 12am.

Bayview's location was the reason we chose the hotel, and glad we did. A lot of places are within walking distance and taxis are available 24/7 in front of the hotel.

We had a toddler in tow, and the small park with a fountain in front of the hotel provided space for our morning walks without having to go far.

Walking distance to Jalan Penang and hawker food courts,stalls selling durians and the famous Hameed soups!
There is also a Mamak Bistro next to the hotel.

The hotel kopitiam/ Coffee house offers a good spread and quick service!

If there is one aspect to comment is the lack of seating area in the lobby for waiting guests, especially during peak season. We had to wait three hours for a room to be available! It would have been a good comfortable wait if there were sofas to rest out tired feet and bodies.

Inside is rather bland, so despite it being roasting hot, and the music is a little too loud, sat outside. The views from the top are great. Reasonable prices, but staff could do with being a little more attentive.

We were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to our room. We had a family room for the 3 of us. Room was very spacious (compared to other family room we have had stayed in) & clean. Check in was expedient. We reached room in under half hour. Doorman was very helpful & rest of service staff was pleasant & informative

Room Tip: Good value
