About Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang

The immense, modernist Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang, with its iconic revolving rooftop restaurant, contrasts starkly with George Town's historic old town that borders it.

The 340 air-conditioned en-suite rooms promise views over the UNESCO World Heritage classified area. Spacious and tastefully decorated, they come with minibar, safe and tea and coffee making facilities.

Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang makes an ideal spot for functions and business events with seven meeting areas, a boardroom and a large ballroom accommodating up to 700 people. The hotel also hosts a rooftop pool, sauna and gym.

Guests can enjoy a cocktail in the rooftop Skybar and an international buffet in the flagship Three Sixty revolving restaurant. There is also a Malaysian restaurant, Kopitiam, and a lobby bar to choose from.

The colourful and multicultural attractions of historic George Town can be reached on foot, such as the Pinang Peranakan Mansion and Little India – both approximately a kilometre of the hotel. The Batu Ferringhi beach is about a half-an-hour drive away.

Positive Reviews

Stunning views over George Town

The best feature of this hotel for many guests is its superb vantage point overlooking George Town's colourful colonial district. The renowned revolving restaurant and bar offer superb views over the skyline, as do certain individual rooms.

Perfect location for exploring the city's heritage

This hotel is perfectly situated for travellers interested in exploring the wealth of historical attractions and culture contained in the old town. Most of the sights are said to be within walking distance, as are a selection of eateries, coffee shops and a popular food court – just a couple of minutes' walk away.

Good facilities

Guests really appreciate the extensive facilities available for their use at the hotel. The swimming pool, sauna and restaurants are often highlighted by guests in their reviews.

Negative Reviews

Starting to show signs of age

The sheen seems to be coming off this hotel with guests saying it is starting to look tired and old. The furniture is described as old-fashioned and the place could do with a bit of an upgrade according to reviewers.

Parking problems

Parking at the hotel can be difficult. Spots are limited and the car park is difficult – or even dangerous – to manoeuvre around. Guests also point out that access from the car park to the hotel isn't very simple.

Some rooms are a bit small

Guests in many categories of room complain about them being too small for comfort. They find the room itself to be a tight squeeze when occupied by two people and their luggage, with the bathrooms said to be even more of a problem in this respect.
