Business hotel in Georgetown

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 21, 2015

I stayed in a couple of rooms in the Cititel; they 'upgraded' me to a corner room when I was unable to extend my stay in the first room I occupied. Both were large and spacious and had a reasonable desk for working on. Bed comfortable. Tea making facilities in room. Shower was ok, although weirdly the bathroom in the first room smelled really strongly of cigarette smoke and the smell got worse throughout my stay (not down to me!). The second room had a very large bathroom (smoke free). I didn't have breakfast; across the road is an excellent roti place. TV had film and news in English. Staff friendly enough for a big business hotel.

Unique Quality: Great views from both sides of the building.

Directions: North west of the historic centre.

An Over Rated Hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 29, 2008

The last time I was in Penang was in 1984. And now Penang has change a lot. I have no idea which hotel to stay and my best way to find out was from the internet. Cititel name came up most of the internet booking web site and all give this hotel a 4 stars. Since this hotel suppose to be right in the center of town on 66 Jalan Penang, After checking out serveral hotel I end up with Cititel. The room was very small not to mention the bathroom which is real small and old looking. Does not provide any bath room amenities. Correct me if I wrong that if you are in 4 stars hotel you don't need any amenities in your bath room.

Directions: Downtown

Convenient downtown business hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 13, 2007

Attended many events at this convenient business hotel. It is located at the upper end of Penang Road near Chulia Street.

What I like is the excellent Japanese hotel in the hotel. There is also a Chinese and ala carte restaurant. Hotel multistorey car park is adequate. The hotel is located near other restaurants and karaoke parlours.

Felt that room size is a bit small. Otherwise, room amenities are comfortable.

Popular with budget business travel as well as tour groups.

Comfort and affordable

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Cititel - along Penang Road, upper medium class, quite comfortable and price is reasonable. With nice facilities . Its for those who wants to travel with comfort and yet who doesnt want to burn a hole in their pocket. Offered quite a nice view of Penang dependeing on which wings you are staying.

Unique Quality: is just a stone?s throw away from business and commercial zones and even closer to fun and excitement. With transport services easily accessible from the hotel, you can explore Penang Island to your heart?s content.

along Penang road where you can sample many of Penang's local food like Nasi Kandar ( try a Ayam madu in a restaurant called Kayu ) , check penang's famous Chendol near the end of Penang road ( near Komtar ) and the Fried Koay Teow ( Char Koay Teow ) and Laksa near the chendol stall

great view of the city , near to Esplanade and many historical sites ( walking distance )
to

1) Cheong Fatt Tse Mansion
2) Municipal Hall
3) Goddess of Mercy Temple
4) St George Church
5) Church of Assumption
6) Fort Cornwallis
7) Museum
8) Sri MAriamam temple plus more
