Adequate base for exploring the city
Adequate as a base for exploring Penang. Most of the things worth seeing were within walking distance, The hotel was clean and well-appointed. The room was a good size, with a comfortable bed and all the appropriate facilities although the single-glazed window did allow external noise (e.g. the pre-dawn call to prayer from the local mosque). The reception staff were welcoming and gracious and the restaurant on the first floor provided a good breakfast. generally, this hotel gets a high rating.

Short Getaway in Penang
Glow Hotel is convenietly located. The room rate was reasonable ans came with a simple but nice buffet breakfast. Only problem is the smell that comes from the toilet even though it has been cleaned,

Fantastic hotel and worth every penny spent
This hotel is fantastic.. I love it so much.. The welcome greetings together with lollypop already win my heart.. And my room is clean and very spacious facing the pool.. I love glow hotel concept on not being cheapskate with shower and shampoo gel as they have it in big dispenser.. You can't bring it home with u of coz.. Lol.. And it's right in the centre of town with lots of local food nearby.. Definitely will go for this hotel again.. Only let down for me was the variety for breakfast but it's ok since the few menu they have taste good..

Convenient location
We booked a big room with 2 single beds and 1 queen bed. There's only one such room per floor which is really spacious. Breakfast was considered good with a selection of porridge, fried noodles, bread and cereals, etc. Walking distance to hawker food, Nonya cuisine restaurant and famous local bakery. Shopping Malls are a 5-10mins drive from hotel.
