Bayview is excellently located in Penang, with attentive staff and a fantastic view from the roof terrace which even includes a rotating classy restaurant. Despite having a construction site in front of our room and wáter leaking into the room during a rainstorm, we had a very good experience at Bayview, especially considering the low rate.
we were on the 18th floor, great view, quiet surroundings at night, great local restaurant withiin walking distance, 15 minutes from georgetown, taxis cheap, big shopping centres nearby would recommend to anyone who wants to be out of the busy town..
Short stay for the penang marathon. No free shuttle to bridge run although official marathon hotel unless booked special marathon package.. Shuttle bus tickets sold out but hotel good enough to arrange limousine service at reasonable rates. Limousine service haphazard because of last minute arrangement and no designated pick up point at bridge so had to make way back myself.
Otherwise hotel room clean as expected with pleasant and helpful staff. Breakfast as expected for a hotel of this class and again with helpful staff. Pleasant stay.
Only drawback is distance for town although shuttles are provided at designated times free of charge.
*For these packages, package savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For packages including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the package will equal the cost of the flight.
