We seldom stay at big hotels or resorts in SE Asia, preferring private rentals in many cases. In Penang we looked at the newer big high-rise apartments in towers closer to the coast, but the attraction of an older penthouse apartment with open balconies in a 15 storey condo block at a cheaper price won us over.

In fact this condo is well located, easy walking distance to Gurney Drive and a short bus or Grab ride to anywhere in George Town or to Batu Ferringhi. It has great panoramic views from two large balconies at each end of the apartment.

The apartment is spacious, with good amenities, large refrigerator, washing machine, comfortable living area, air conditioning works quite well, beds are Ok. The WiFi was reliable and fast.

Some parts of the unit have been re-furbished, but the main bedroom en-suite should be next on the list. Of the twin sinks, one could not be drained and one could not be sealed to hold water, water pressure in the shower is very limited and the toilet took about 10 minutes to re-fill. This could be an issue if there were 4-5 people, but the second bathroom functioned better, so not a problem after our friends left after a few days stay.

Apart from the quirks above, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The security deposit was promptly refunded.

Brian, thanks for the great reviews. We are now installed a pump to increase the water pressure of the apartment. So all good for both bathrooms and be able to accommodate more people with no issue. We are looking forward to your return. Cheers, Sharon & Leslie.
