          any time to check in late,no hassle.

          car park area still lack of secureness.

        • Family with children
          3.2

          The hotel is really old and did not meet my expecation. Further for the junior suite, it does not have much ammenities, no hair dryer, no refreshments in the fridge and the room is not very clean.

        • Family with children
          3.2

          Such a inefficient hotel. Such a big hotel but only 2 computers proceeds with check-in, the staffs are slow and inefficient, the room even not ready by 3pm. Toilet was not clean and still have some hair in the toilet bowl. Outlook of hotel so rundown, parking space so limited, very limited choice of food surrounding area shopping area also far away. Is not convenience without car. Is really cant classify for 4 star hotel as they claim.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Good service and attention. Value for money.

          Other guests on my floor were making a lot of noise and woke my baby (all this at 12midnight - 1am). After informing the Front Counter twice, the other guests were still noisy, walking in and out of their rooms, talking loudly to each other, complaining to each other, etc.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Bus stop to/from airport in front of the hotel, near adventist hospital

          They didnt vacuum the carpet everyday . not too clean lobby, corridor

        • Single
          6.4

          Basically everything is ok, except for the floor carpet, never vacuum, kind of dirty. Wifi needs to pay,MYR5/hour.

        • Couple
          6.6

          The room was big and spacious. Me and my gf loved it.

          The staff are not friendly and the service is poor. The aircon stopped working, they said they were going to change my room but they never gave crap about us they left in the same room.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          The location of the hotel is quite good within walking distance to gurney drive and pulau tikus market. The room I stayed is generally quite clean and have good facilities good except the toilet facilities as commented below.

          Lack of staff manning the counter. During check out time, there was only one or two staff manning the reception and cashier counters. Hotel's toilet in room not really clean and also the toilet at lobby is very dirty and wet. The hotel's toilet does not have hair blower/dryer and shampoo which are generally provided by most hotels at this price range. Poor direction to hotel's car park. Upon entry into the complex, there was no clear sign of the hotel car park ( which is further up ). There are about 3 entries to separate car park and initially I parked wrongly at the shopping complex car park. You need to improve on car park direction.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          staff very friendly and helpful hotel location is a plus

          Airconditioning don't work well i.e. not cold enough, even after maintenance staff fixed it. As our stay was 2 days only we did not press matter further.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The location was good, helpful bell boy n reception. Shopping mall just next to hotel.

          Hotel looks old n not very clean. Not value for money.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Friendly staffs. The only thing is the furniture and design abit old. Should change to lcd tv.

        • Couple
          5.8

          The view was amazing and rate was good

          Not very clean rooms very expensive restaurant

        • Older travelers
          3.2

          I like the sevices.......

          Bed cover ery dirty, I call to customer service they giving very slow n bad service. Air-corn very noisey, they don't solve the problem also. One word 'bad'

        • Single
          6.2

          The hotel is conveniently located in terms of access to the city and good food, close to Gurney Drive.

          When I checked in, I was horrified to hear that "No Smoking" rooms are not available. When I enquired about this with the Front Desk staff I was even more horrified to be told that Berjaya is a "Smoking hotel". I travel extensively and this is the first time I have heard of such a thing. Clearly Berjaya Hotel is out of touch with both national and international standards and trend. Just Google "smoke free hotels" and you will get 18,600,000 hits. The front desk staff was very polite and explained to me that "No Smoking" rooms are difficult to enforce and that is the reason. I noticed Berjaya Hotel has "No durian" policy which is being strictly enforced. This policy has no legal basis yet the hotel has chosen to make this a hotel policy and enforce it strictly. So poor enforcement of a policy is just an excuse. I will never stay in Berjaya Hotel again and will never recommend it to anybody.

        • Couple
          7.4

          The place is walking distance to Gurney Drive, Penang's Food Centre.

          The hotel does not allow us to check out at 1.00pm.
