Cititel Penang is one of the few hotels that are such a joy to review. I have visited it on several occasions and have been taken on a room and facilities tour of the premises. I have experienced much hospitality from the Marcom team. And while it is not necessary for my recommendation, I have received festive hampers from Cititel Penang before (I felt necessary to mention that). When I dined at their Main Street Cafe, I have been well treated, and have also come across friends dining there who told me that they patronise the cafe because it is good value for money. Similarly, I have FB friends from overseas who told me that Cititel Penang is their choice due to its convenient location in the heart of George Town.
I found the room at Cititel Penang to be a bit small. Understandable, since this is in price location at the given room rates. Checking on the prices on Agoda, the room rates for book now pay later without breakfast range from RM176 for Standard Room, RM196 for the Superior Room and RM217 for the Deluxe Room.
If you are looking for a hotel within George Town, and the room rates fit your budget, then I am well pleased to recommend Cititel Penang.
