Glow Hotel Penang

Bright colours with pop art that stands out, that pretty much summarizes the interior of Glow Hotel Penang. Glow Hotel Penang is strategically located in the heart of Georgetown, also surrounded by many local food stores.

The corridor walkway looks decent and clean. photo DSC_2184_zpssbl1cak1.jpg

As I checked in to the room, I find it to be pretty spacious for two. There are four types of rooms :

Here is a Superior Double Room , with 21-sqm, 32” LED TV and a mini bar with complimentary water, electronic safe deposit box, gym, Airport / Port Transfer Service (with charge),  laundry & dry cleaning service (with charge) as well as swimming pool and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet access in every room.

I like the black-out curtains, at least I don’t have to get up even after the sun rises. Iron and iron boards are available upon request. Hence, if you need anything but you don’t see it in the room, just pick up the phone and ask!

Bathroom Amenities
All basic bathroom amenities are available and I particularly love the citrus fragrant of the shower gel 😀 The bathroom has hair dryer too!

On another side note, there’s an on-going Selfie Contest. Props are ready and all you need to do is to pimp yourself for a selfie. photo DSC_2224_zpscxq0mt3p.jpg

Here is how you do it. You neeed to make a creative selfie at the selfie walls and post the pictures on Zest Bar Cafe’s FB page.

Oh, well. This is not a creative selfie. photo IMG_20150824_4_zpscd4ehpuz.jpg

As an overall, Glow Hotel Penang is reasonable and the location itself is pretty convenient. The only thing I find it hard is the limited parking spaces available. For those who do not drive, it would be easy but for those who does, you gotta look around for parking spaces. Anyhow, if desperate measures, there is an empty spot to park your cars behind the hotel with a fee of RM30 if you were to park overnight. Fees will be charges as that is not part of the Glow Hotel‘s amenities.
