I liked this place although have been seeing some negative thought on agoda.com when I was booking thru the web, as in my own experience I didn't found any of the negative part as mention there (maybe I was lucky? Haha) though I admit first time I stayed here last year, I lost my socks, because I kept it under the blanket and the cleaning service took it away when cleaning,they couldn't find my socks but no big deal for me. I like the fried fish fillet vermicelli soup next to the hotel, and at n... Read more

This not the typical budget hotel. The room is spacious, clean and refreshing. Service is prompt and staff are generally friendly. There are many eateries near the hotel, great local food at reasonable price. The pool is small but good for a cool dip. Breakfast is simple, do not expect wide spread but the taste is good. My choice for my numerous business trips.

While I having my breakfast on the restaurant just now, I have found a fly inside their fried noodle! YES! IT IS FLY! NOT FRIED UNION! In light of this, before I am able to snap a photo of my food, I quickly rush to the waiter and show him there a fly inside! The waiter has asked me to wait for the chef explanation..and collect the plate from me. After half and hour, there none explanation from the chef until I headed to the receptionist and the receptionist has asked me to reflect this matter... Read more

Having had a wonderful stay at the GLOW Pratunam in Bangkok, I was excited for the chance to stay at another GLOW location. Although not a bad experiences, the hotel failed to match up to the level of its Bangkok counterpart. The Positives: The staff were very friendly and accommodating when asked questions about the area. The room was very comfortable with western-style showers and trendy decor. When I was inside my room it was very quiet and relaxing. The Negatives: When I first booked th... Read more

For a budget hotel, this is not bad. The decor is comfy & nice. Location wise is good as there are plenty of food stalls around, with also 2 tau sar piah shops Ban Heang & Ngee Hiang just nearby. However the aircon of the room is not cold enough even at night. Also the pillows are too soft for me thus affecting my sleep

I have never changed my hotel booking whenever I travel to penang, mainly business trip. I like their breakfast always which I concern the most, as it might be the only meal that I have daytime. it gives me everything I like for my breakfast. I like their interior d├ęcor, always stylish and simple. ONE thing should look into : the space of parking is TOO limited! I will definitely/continuously stay with GLOW´╝?

Was here during the outbreak of no water and no air-condition. What a day, came down to meet the Manager on Duty. The minute came down, it was like a pasar, there were people that was shouting at the Manager(RJ) and scolding him but he was calm and polite and explaining in detail to all the people there. What a guy, i really should praise him as he was really patient and kept he cool always. Can't blame them for it. Overall the room was nice and cozy. Interior of the room is very nice and hippy ...

This hotel situate at great location where nearby full with eatery place. All within walking distance. Shopping mall is about 1km from the hotel. I paid RM140 for a queen size bed with breakfast and it is really value for money. Do not expect this hotel will be the same likes Glow Hotel in Bangkok. It is a budget hotel come with simple and modern interior. Overall is comfortable and clean. Breakfast is ok but it is not necessary if you need to pay extra for it.

Love this hotel due to its colorful interior. I got free upgrade to a bigger room. Nice and comfy bed. Very clean bathroom. Great location with hawker food centre around this hotel and it's near to the shopping malls.However,I don't recommend their transport service because they promised a limousine van to the airport for rm70 but they changed to a lousy small bus with broken aircon.

19 jun- 22 June. It was a pleasant place to stay. I would say . Awesome location. everywhere is whether a short drive away ( < 10 min without traffic)or a walk away. The staff at the front office were awesome and friendly. Even though the toilet was having unpleasant smell, the response team was quick at solving the issue. however the issue arise and they came the next day to help us to solve it. just 5 min away from the hotel was the famous crab claypot rice. which is awesome.

Really love the service and cleanliness of the room! :) I will recommend to others as it provides a very conducive environment. The air-conditioning of the rooms and lobby can be improved though! Other than that the rooms are cool as there were family room for my family and it is not a hassle to go from room to room since everyone is in the same room!

It's my second time at the GLOW Penang and although the staff made a great job making me feel welcomed, there are certain disappointments. First up the good bits. The hotel is a win on most fronts. Rates are decent, location is good, rooms are comfortable, and personally I'm all for the urbanesque design and aesthetics. Graffiti and the grey-yellow rooms may not be for everyone but I really like it. Service is good too as staff are pleasant, upbeat and helpful. The downsides? Well it's my se... Read more

What I particularly enjoyed about Glow was the wonderful staff. As soon as I walked in they spoke both good English and were very welcoming and professional. The room was clean and basic, as was the breakfast. My only complaint would be the location, which really does not lend itself to exploring the old town and is a good 25/30 minute walk to the best parts of Penang. Also just on a side note, a small room with a treadmill should not count as a gym! Nice pool tho.

Suited along neighbourhood street with self sufficient and recommendable local delights. There is a famous pastry shop right across the hotel. Hawker stalls adjacent to the hotel are a mini vibe on its own with local dishes and for those who want to experience the asian street food. Warning: do not attempt to take photo of the lady vendor selling pretty pastry (kueh keuh), she curse! Haha other than thag everything is good with friendly locals !
