Malaysia: Hotel GLOW Penang in George Town

01. Outside Facade*LOCATION
Hotel Glow Penang is about 10 to 15 minute walk (along Jalan Macalister) from Komtar, if you decided to take the bus from the airport and alight at Komtar.


02. LobbyThe colorful lobby / front desk area on the first floor


03. LobbyThe waiting area on the first floor


04. Room*ROOM
Like other hotels, they have different room type, our group consists of 10 persons with 3 kids and a senior, they do not have adjoining rooms but they manage to book all our 3 rooms on the same floor. The rooms seems well kept, minimal designs to have a feeling of bigger space.


05. BedBed was okayish, I love softer beds.


06. TVA flat screen tv was hanged from the wall where we are able to connect our ipad to watch our favorite tv seriies.


07. T&B*Toilet & Bath
Bathroom is a bit smaller, simple design and clean. Never had any issues with the water pressure and heater.


08. Dinning*Breakfast
Dining area is on the second floor, choices of western and local dishes was available but the 3 mornings that we had, I  did not see any major changes in the menu.


09. DinningOn the other side of the dining area is a simple bar where you can order drinks and just outside is a small swimming pool if you feel taking a few laps.


10. Welcome


+ They have transportation service available on the first floor offering service from hotel to airport and different tourist spots, and we found out that it’s a bit cheaper than the offer of the taxi driver we met in the airport when we first arrive.
+ Checking in (and checking out) is a bit slow, I dunno if it is because we are a big group, but there are refreshments prepared for us when we first arrived while waiting for our room so I give them points for that.
+ There is a small note with lollipops in our room when we first arrived, we felt the service was made personal with that simple gesture.
