      I was first attracted by the low price & knowing that it's at Georgetown so I booked it! The hotel is awesome for its location & cleanliness.. The location is so convenience that it's only 5min walk to shopping centre. During night time, it's a stroll to all the local hawker food & 24hr store! You can't find any better hotel than Hotel Sentral..

      The bfast is very average but I trust tourist who visit Penang would wish to try the local delight on the street more than hotel buffet! The toliet is really cold with the fan inside.. I guess you need to switch off the aircon outside before u shower.. If not, it will be freezing cold!

      The location indicated on Booked.net is slightly off but we managed to find it (walk from Jln Macalister to Lrg Kinta). Quite clean for a budget hotel. We had the family room, so space wasn't a problem. They let us drop of our bags first before check-in time to go strolling around. Staffs smiles, I wouldn't say "friendly or helpful" but they put on the effort to smile. Great location for its night street vendors @ Lrg Baru. 10-15Min to Komtar.

      Things are starting to fall apart in the relatively new hotel (water heater, headboard, flooring etc). We put on the "Do-not-Distrub" light switch while we're out but found our beds made when we came back, nothing's missing though. Our room was at the end of the hallway opposite the maids' work station & storeroom with rattlings throughout the night, but we have earmuffs. I have had bad hotel breakfasts before but this one takes the cake, the Included Breakfast is of small variety & low quality, I'm from M'sia myself & had no idea where the hell they get their canned-beans from, they are the worst. "Hard-Boiled Eggs" were found to be 10% cooked with the yolk entirely raw, highlighted to staff & was replied with "Sorry Sir (Smile)". Skipped hotel breakfast entirely the next day for real Penang breakfast outside.

      It's clean n cosy. Hotel is located centrally, close to shopping centers n bus terminal.

      Maybe can have more shelves in the toilet for cosmetics.

      It's just few walks away from hawkers stalls where you can get great local food at very compatible price . Many shopping malls (time square, 1st abenue etc) are also about 10 mins walk. The central bus station (komtar) is also about 10 mins walk away where u can basically travel to most of the sight seeing places.

      The hawkers's stalls just 5- minute- walk away. Nice food, cheap and lots of variety.

      Room size is too small.

      Location - Walking distance to food stalls. Friendly security guards.

      Room has poor sound proof. Awake due to other people was talking outside our room. Access card was not function on the next morning after we came back from breakfast.

      Modern room with nice clean towel & bedsheet, LCD TV and Astro channels and coffee maker etc.For the price its Truly value for money. Will definitely stay here again.

      Not many TV channels & limited parking. In addition during school hoildays its so packed.....difficut to get breakfast.

      Communication in English very poor. Supprise!!!!! ......Banyak nyamuk dalam bilik. Breakfast, telur separuh masak memang tak masak langsung dan makanan lain tidak mencukupi kerana guest yang ramai. Cafe juga kecil.

      Rooms are clean and have nice design, with coffee/tea and a fridge. Wifi works good. Location is good, near to Komtar (all the busses, including 102,401 & 401E to Airport, and 101 to Batu Ferringhi) and near to food courts and city sights. But still not too much noise from outside. Breakfast choice was ok and the price per night is fair .

      I asked for a room with window and I got one. But most rooms of this hotel have windows with frosted glass, facing to a light well only. So no view to outside / weather. Its seems it is not possible to close doors quietly (my room door was also badly adjusted): always noise from the korridor and other rooms, esp. in the morning. I would recommend the management to re-adjust all the doors and to install seals into the door frames.

      Very nice experience during my 2 days stay. This hotel is very clean and very new. The transportation is easy, in the evening there are many choice of local food just 30 meters away from this hotel.
