Good deal, good location Oct 20, 2010
The Cititel lacks any sort of Penang's stereotypical heritage, but it is situated right in the center of the heritage district...even on the Heritage Trail. The hotel really puts on an air of being high class; it is certainly not a backpacker's hotel, but the room rate was really not that high. I guess that makes it good value for the money paid. My room overlooked ocean and had views of St. Francis' church immediately below, the Blue Mansion, and the E&O. It sits at the end of Lebuh Chulia, making it easy to cut across town on foot or on a bus. Becak sit on the sidewalk to the left of the hotel entrance and further down that road, hawker stalls set up every night.

The room itself is standard for a hotel of this price range. The presentation is nice and bathroom was modern. It had slow drains but good water pressure. On my first day, the staff even brought a plate of bananas...welcome bananas. I'm still not convinced that I was supposed to get them, but I ate them nevertheless. I would stay here again for its ease and convenience.

For the price, perfect, great location. Mar 21, 2009
I agree with Tom a previous poster, this is a great hotel, for being so central to everything, nightlife, China Town, Little India, & the shopping malls, plenty of things to see just by walking around, the old buildings are great to see, most are now heritage trust.

I've stayed here twice & the service in this hotel is good, the breakfast is quite a big spread, free newspaper delivered to the door, rooms arn't big, but for the price you're paying it's still worth it. No swimming pool, it's a jacuzzi, but more than big enough if you just want to cool off, so if you're after somewhere to sunbake, this would'nt be any good.

At night all the hawker stalls open up, although plenty as well during the day, but a totally different atmosphere at night, plenty of English/Irish style pubs close by & discos for the younger set.

Would definately stay again.

Great location and affordable too! Mar 20, 2008
I was planing for a family vacation to Penang and came across the Cititel Penang from this site]which ultimately helped me in making the decision stay there. My family and I was pleasantly surprised in the location of the hotel which is smack right in the golden triangle of night entertainment in Penang. I was told by a friendly staff that we were at the "Upper Penang Road", and this is the most "happening" spot for night entertainment in Penang.

We were spoiled by the variety of food that was available in the hotel and also from the restaurants and street hawkers that seemed like they just appeared from nowhere, cos when we were exploring Penang Road during the afternoon; the street was without any signs of street hawkers whatsoever...It was just amazing that we could still see the rail tracks that was once used for the electric trams that used to ply the Penang road streets! It was sad that the services was stopped a long time back as I was told...wouldn't it be fabulous if these trams were still around, an environment friendly mode of transportation and a little piece of Penang history for all to enjoy.

All in all, my family had a great time in Penang and we will definitely come back next year to the Cititel Penang.
