Location is spot on!”

If you're looking for an affordable place to stay with travel amenities then Red Rock is the place to go. Lots of hawker stalls right below and within 200m radius, we found even more street food. In Red Rock itself, there's a mini mart and pharmacy, super convenient! The staff here are very helpful, from concierge to housekeeping and the technicians. They were polite and attended to our queries patiently. Red Rock is now definitely on my top list as one of the best affordable stays in Penang.

Good than expectation ”

Even it is aging hotel the cleanliness is very good, which is better than some newer stay. Spacious room, we added a bed it is with bed frame which make us satisfied feel worth the price. Kind and helpful staff, solve our problems quickly. Parking is free. The only disadvantage is elevator and pool in old design, but it doesn't affect much. Overall it was a pleasant stay, recommend. 👍
