short overnight stay.
Lagila lounge was advertised with special drink promotion and we were looking forward to have a drnk and relax. At 1130pm it was apparently closed and there were no staff there. Place was dark and empty. No wonder the hotel cannot generate revenue! When it was the Sheraton, it was lively and it had atmosphere and vibrancy. The room was very comfortable and clean. Hotel is very calm and quiet.

Disappointed believeIng this is a 4 star hotel, but this hotel will qualify for 2 stars Or less due to the toilet and bathroom conditions. We have booked 2 rooms but have to change rooms due to the cleanness of the bedsheets in both rooms. Although we were given connecting room in a different floors toilets and bathrooms in all rooms are very bad due to its age. The room we stayed for remaining 4 nights has cracked vanity top, water leaking on the floor through the cracks I believe management is well aware of the conditions of the rooms, and ignoring. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone unless the major renovation is done. I do have pictures and videos of the rooms. We wasted over 2,500 RM for 2 rooms. Keep the cool and to enjoy our 5 days holiday in Penang we decided to continue to stay here. Keep away from this hotel!!

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Likes: The location was good as it was close to many eateries and tourist sites. The hotel's dinner buffet was very good but the lunch buffet was disappointing. The pool area was quite good. Reception & dining staff were pleasant. Dislikes: The whole hotel needs major refurbishing. Bathroom tiles were full of mold, bath tub chipped in many places. Only 1 hand towel was provided when we asked for 2, it was taken away the next day and not replaced. Cleaning staff need more training. Sink in bathroom badly situated therefore water leaked onto floor which made it slippery and dangerous. We asked for it to be fixed twice but was never resolved. The cleaning staff instead put a floor towel to cover up the puddles. Bed was hard and pillows harder. Towels were paper thin.
