    Almost perfect :)”

    Very clean. All well equipped. Just that during my stay in room 1508, when i turn the water on (both the shower and the bath tub water tap), water came out from both ways. Not affecting any of our comfort but it sure wastes a lot of water. Please get the maintenance to fix it. Next, the noise insulation could improve a bit more because even though my room is on 15th floor, i can still hear vehicle sounds even all windows are properly shut. Bed, pillows and blanket are awesome. TV channel ok quite number of channels to choose from however the receiver could be improve so that you can get rid of those flickers on the screen. No harm to give a 9/10 for my stay. :)

    Excellent value for money hotel. Quite near Jalan Penang street, Komtar etc. (almost walkable). Very good Indian restaurant "Passions of Kerala", a few mins away. All the attractions in georgetown are very near. However, Batu Ferringhi beach / Spice Garden is a bit far (around 12 kms). The breakfast was excellent, with variety of foods. I used the gym on all the 3 days. Swimming pool is good, though a bit small. Room has all the amenities like iron, dryer, coffee / tea , hot water kettle, hangers etc. The staff at the reception were very cordial in giving information about the tourist attractions. Fully carpeted hotel.

The room is breathtaking, wall-to-wall carpeted, spacious bathtub. The only downside is the AC, warm and the temperature is static. Overall, will definitely stay at this hotel in the future!

    I always stay at a different property but opted to try a new place this time. I will return here as I find the neighborhood appealing, somewhat near Gurney Plaza. It's a bit dated but clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was good with a nice selection. The only thing missing is a safe box which I really appreciate.

    Centre of food haven”

    Hotel Royal offers upgraded rooms and I am happy because there are many power outlets available in each room. Very suitable for our modern lifestyle with multiple gadgets to be charged after a long day. The hotel is also a walking distance to many food place. We walked to Bee Hwa for their famous char kuey teow. I'm hoping the management will do a makeover for the lobby for a better first impression.

    Thank you!! ”

    Thank you!! We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation for all the hard work and dedication provided by front desk staff, room service and housekeeping during Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO). Thank you for their hospitality during our stay (18th-21st June 2020). We felt safe staying in the hotel. We booked at the last minute but managed to get an Executive Suite with nice view from the 20th floor!!
