    Big room, not expensive, the pool on the top of the hotel (22f) was great!!

    Very unfriendly staff - I felt like not beeing welcome!! Had to ask 3 times for the hotel internal laundry service which was very expensive too. I would suggest to stay in another hotel! I really felt like an idiot in this hotel! The people in malaysia areall so helpful - and the staff in this hotel was so unfriendly even if they get paid for!

    We were placed on the 20th floor with a leaking ceiling. There was a horrible stench in the rooms. Mold on the ceiling too. Requested for a change to another floor.

    Very run down, dirty wall in lifts, poor workmanship on electrical wiring, bathroom shower head fixture no good, had to hold showerhead. Dining room: waiter used fingers to put spring rolls into warmer while tongs were beside him, tables not cleared after guests. Egg corner not available on 2nd morning, single 2 slice toaster only so queuing for toast. Rm170 is over priced for this hotel.(Bayview City @ rm180 much newer, cleaner, better value !) I had a late checkout at 1pm and still house keeping woke me at 11am. I mistakenly booked 'grand Continental' instead of 'Continental' in Penang. I wont make that mistake again.

    This hotel looks like very old and run down. It really give visitors a bad impression the moment you step in. And the smell in the lobby is unbearable.

    Staff were fantastic, very friendly and and I felt a warm welcome. Food for room service is not expensive and good for family to stay. Upon my arrival, I requested our rooms to be side-by-sde and they have fulfill it....MARVELLOUS !!

    I have booked 2 Rooms and both toilets is not comfortable even and the door frame need repairs. One of the room without the prayer arrow for us.

    nothing in particular this time. The view was looking towards the other side of the town and i can see the Penang bridge. Wonder why the continental room is smaller than the deluxe room i stayed before since i paid more for this room. It is due to the fact that these rooms are located in higher floors..hmmm. wonder, wonder

    nothing in particular. maybe during the breakfast where there were a lot of people and not enough table and chairs. chaotic scene.

    from my room, the view of the city, especially the Komtar building are magnificient...i can see almost all other hotels nearby, shopping malls, gorgeous shophouses, the ship, the mountain and the sea. Plus point for the location and the view. They have bath tub too. another plus point.

    they have only free channels, no cable or Astro channels, making my stay a little dull. the aircorn, although old, still cooling. the pillow was a little hard. miss my breakfast so cannot comment on the offering.

    Sorry, under the prevailing conditions, there is nothing good to write about Hotel Grand Continental Penang. To be honest, I booked the wrong hotel which was supposed to be Hotel Continental.

    Wardrobe has no door. There was no Kettle to boil water. The bathroom door has rotten.
