Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went to stay there in June, stayed at 31st floor. only two lifts serve the airbnb residents. So going back to your room can take some time.

Inside the condo, the amenities are aged and damaged. Probably will not choose this airbnb again the next time I visit Penang.

Stayed on the 31st floor for 2 nights. There were 2 queen sized beds and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was not comfortable for prolonged sitting.
Overall, the room was clean and satisfactory for a short stay.

Booked a studio at level 27 under cutiepie.

Pros:
- good location
- near eateries

Cons:
- host was unresponsive after check in details sent
- sofa bed was badly stained and covered with a smelly blanket
- fixed carpark lot at level 8 (11 giddy spiral levels from entrace)
- washing machine was very dirty and unbalanced (have to do a thoroughly cleaning by myself)
- can hear loud music late at night
- provided 2 towels even though there were 4 pax
- dislike that there's a camera at the door entrance
Considered value for money but will find a better place next time.

I rented a studio apartment at 23A level for 9N10D.
The apartment is clean, bright and nicely decorated. It is a truly home away from home feeling.
Instruction & photo print screen for self check in was sent via whatsapp 1 day in advance. It is clear & precise and check in was smooth.
However the assigned parking lot is at L10 & i have not enjoyed driving round & round to L10 and down again.

Another let down is hand wash liquid is not provided in the bathroom and i bought 1 from a nearby pharmacy.
I would recommed the owner to throw away the dish washing sponge too.

Lastly, i would recommend the building management to have a signage to the lift at level 23A.. All the doors are green and look the same and i had lost a couple of times looking for THE DOOR to the lift .

Overall i have enjoyed my stay in Tropicana..

We booked a room at 32 level. It was a studio apartment. It was quite clean and spacious. There were microwave, mini fridge , hair dryer and washing machine available. The owner was quite responsive in requests made to them. They were kind. It was really an amazing view from that room. I enjoyed my stay. It was a decent stay.

We just made a booking from Agoda. In our confirmation from it is stated that Refundable Security Deposit (Pay at the property). Upon received the confirmation may be about 30min later someone from Tropicana 218 contacted us and ask is transfer them 200RM into their bank account. I mentioned that I will pay at arrival because I am foreigner and I don't have any bank account in Malaysia. They proposed me to give them a credit card details and of course I refused it. Later they asked me to contact the Agoda for cancel the booking. I proposed them several times I can pay cash on arrival but they refused. They are not helpful at all. I have no choice but Agoda call me and canceled the booking. Be careful when u make a booking and if you are foreigner.

This was a recent building, heard that it’s only opened two years ago during the time when strict lockdown was eased but borders still closed and a lot of domestic tourism were ongoing. It’s the twin tower next to Courtyard by Marriot hotel. Going up the spiral carpark is indeed very challenging as our lot was on the 9th floor and frankly, once we park the car, best we don’t move and just switch to take Grab. There is separate elevators to homestay vs residents. There are many hawker places down the road as this is a long avenue, we especially like the dimsum behind Red rock hotel and Ghee Heang shop with the famous sesame oil and biscuit is just next door!

If only i can rate 0 !! The worst experience ever for Air BNB. I will not take any risk to stay at any Air BNB from now on. Im sure even the cheapest hotel in Penang is much much cleaner. The room was dusty , floor with hairs, mirror with stain. No sofa bed like pic, the curtain is dusty and too short to cover the window which means you cannot take a nap in a daytime. Me and partner having serious skin allergic, whole body !!! Level 26, studio. 5 days in jail!

Dirty bathroom. Shower area has no shower curtains or shower screen. Sloppy service. Had to chase many times to get back our deposit.

We paid the equivalent of 5 star hotel and got a one star experience. Never again
