Fabulous 8,6 From 646 reviews

Very good 8,0
Great luxury hotel with all the finery that comes with multi stars. Close to little India and China town - short walk to fort Cornwallis also. We stayed here at the end of a 6 week holiday on the Greek island so it was a culture difference for sure. If your travelling to Penang and need a hotel that is central and has all the facilities needed then this hotel would suit. depends on your needs - no beaches nearby, great for conferences as in the business district or for easy walking to local landmarks and history. Hard to find a bar for a beer during the day around this area

Fantastic stay again here. Beautiful room could only made better if they fixed little details like the closet door not being able to open smoothly. Hot shower with good water pressure, excellent cleanliness, amazingly comfortable bed. Front desk had 1 very rude woman but otherwise they were nice. Room service is completely awful and overpriced though so don't bother with it. The hotel is one of my all time favorites and is a good value.

Good Hotel
Penang is one of our favorite cities. And, is one of my favorite booking companies. We went to Penang and I searched for a good hotel near downtown Georgetown. The Royale Chulan is good. Though, if you are a Gold member with and you were told it is a VIP hotel on mislead you. As a VIP hotel they are supposed to offer upgrades to their Gold guests. The woman who checked us in, told us the hotel policy is to NEVER offer upgrades. I told her I am a Gold member and the VIP hotels offer this. She said, no...they do not. This bothered me. But, our room was nice...though it could use a paint job. And, there was a large indentation in the floor which is carpeted over. And, if you step in it wrong, you might twist your ankle. I liked the room. The shower is spectacular. The bathroom is nice. The bed is very comfortable. The cleaning staff is great although, on the first night they did not replenish our amenities. And, on the second night we had to call for housecleaning when we returned to our room near 3pm. The lobby is nice. The chairs in all the public areas are terrific. They are large, comfortable and sturdy. The breakfast is okay. They offer cooked to order egg dishes. They also have fresh fruit which makes us happy. If you look to the left of the egg station there is a 'hidden' Indian food section with fresh Roti every day. The other food options are international and local in nature. They only had hash browns one day
