            We were pleasantly surprised to see the size of the rooms and beds. More than enough for 4 adults and 3 kids. The facilities were really good. GAMA and KOMTAR is just opposite of the place. Would definitely stay here again. Btw, the person who attended to us during check in was very helpful too.

            The unit is spacious, with 2 bedrooms, 2 wash rooms, kitchenette with induction cooker, microwave, fridge. Cozy living room, 2 units of lcd tv. The unit is a rejuvenated old shophouse located just beside the main road of Magazine street. If you're travelling family with kids, this would be a better deal for you. The only setback to some, you'll need to find a nearby roadside parking spot or a private parking lot. It wasn't a big deal for me though.

            Room is very spacious and comfortable, staff is friendly and location is very convenient. Maybe due to COVID and short of guest, the maintenance of hotel seems a bit down. One of the aircon is spoilt, the water pipe is leaking. Hopefully the management can look into it. Will stay again for my next visit to Penang.

            The hotel itself is very nice and cosy, the problem was car park. Now they are renovating the reception so you need to call hitel no so the staff will come to you to give you access to the room.

            My family and I stayed 1 night at the Magazine Vista Hotel. Good location within the heritage area. For food lovers, checkout the delicious hawker food at Presgrave and Cecil market. Very comfortable room, just nice for the 7 of us. Room is clean and tidy. Even provided spacious wardrobe. The staff is friendly and helpful. On a whole, we were very pleased with the stay and we will definitely stay here again for our next visit.

            Everthing is good 👍🏼.... only for parking you should find by ur self.. will come & stay here again”

            Suggestion: for check in + check out my opinion, PHC should provide awaiting hall at ground floor... so we can waiting ur staff there... then the hall need to have pass word (waiting room pssword) like ur room hotel... so for ur guest who have baby or child / can seat at the hall..not need to stand infront door hotel.. until ur staff come... password ur can be provide once ur guest comfirmed their booking via email...

            Good location and very clean, but not friendly for driver due to no parking”

            We are total 8 adults, 1 infant & 1 child. They have provide extra pillow, the sofa can become a extra bed. Hotel is very clean and new, our family members and children are enjoying so much there. But, very not convenient for those who drive, you need to looking for your own parking around that area. Then, this hotel is having very good location, Komtar Penang just opposite of the hotel, distance walking around 2 minutes. They are having a lot of local food store, by walking distance too, very convenient for those traveller who did not drive car. And last, some people might feel insecure due to the room just besides of the street, so must make sure the lock of the main door must be locked before go to the bedroom. Anyway, I still like this hotel so much.

            It has what it states on the website. Just that if you are unfit to climb 24 steps from the entrance to rooms, well this is not a place for you. Need to call the hotel and wait for him to come by to meet you and open the place for you, it is fine for such a deal. Many retail selections nearby ,there is the Gama supermart departmental store.
