The location is just walking distance to popular tourist spots and to the komtar bus station. As the previous comments mentioned, the elevator is still not functional. You better check it first if you have big luggages and you'll need to carry your stuff though stairs. Complimentary breakfast buffet is great with a lot of choices. Also there's a rooftop that you can hang out with chairs and music. Overall a nice place to stay in georgetown.
The dorm room could be perfect if they put a mirror and a small desk on each cubicle. The air conditioning was fantastic though. It was indicated on my booking that there was no breakfast included but it actually was. It’s not just a simple butter and toast; but it’s a buffet (not very grand though). I can say that it has the best breakfast I ever had from a budget hostel.
I love this place near Comtar and You can getting Around landmark in George Town for walking, But I complain this disadvantage in here WiFi is not so good. Anyway I impressed everything in hotel. May be some day I'll comeback !!!
Nice hotel, it offer free breakfast
The hotel is great, near komtar, clean, comfortable, food is really nice, service & owner is great.
Good breakfast. Good location. Good service. The room is small
Great and comfortable stay in apollo inn! However, wifi is quite weak and the attitude of the receptionist can be improved
Good location, very close to Komtar to catch the bus, clean property with complimentary breakfast, fast internet connection, elevator on property really help when you have a heavy luggage.
It's a home from home. My family had a comfortable stay here. The staff are nice and helpful. I love the breakfast which is suitable for both Asians and Westerners. Tea time is nice, too. I will definitely stay here again in the furture.
I love Apollo Inn.It's on great location, you can find yummy street food near the hotel. The room is clean and air condition is cold but the room I've stay was no window,a bit noisy from other guests. The bathroom was clean. Staffs are friendly.

Watch out for the bed bugs
We went there for 3 nights. The localisation is great however there were some bed bugs in the room. We got bitten really hard (20 at least, that hurts..) and all our stuff got infested. We are to wash everything if we don't want to bring some home (those little things stay in your suitcases even through a long plane journey and will infest your house). Strongly recommend to watch carefully your room and go to another hotel if you see some. Otherwise, cool place with really nice roof top.

Good for couple nights
Good location next to Komtar. and nice view from the terrace on roof. Room is really small but has own bathroom. Pretty clean. Has a safe! It's very essential for travelers but rare for budget rooms. Very good breakfast! One of previous review said that place was expensive but for that area in George Town for same money you can find something like hostel or room with shared bathroom. Positive stay in general

3 nights in Penang
Location was really good! Near to almost every good restaurant I intended to visit. Not that far from Komtar which makes everything easier. AC get cooling a little bit longer than usual, good thing, hotel management allow us to turning on the AC during the day even when we left the room. Breakfast was good, not too much choices but tasty and fulfilling. Room itself yes it wasn't that spacious moreover you are a pack of 3 adults even when you took room for 3. But it's not a big deal for us. I've been staying to another smaller room during another stay in Penang

Terrible for that price
Booked mainly because of its high rating on a popular travel search engine, which is ridiculously high, I found out that the room was outrageously small (no space for two small handbags) and terribly dirty everywhere. I couldn't stay there for more than one day. There were lots of black long hair inside the bed, under the duvet too, squashed mosquitos on the walls and the room walls were entirely covered by dark spots and also peeling. Unfortunately the bed was stuck (and fixed) to the wall. Most of the rooms do not have a window, which thing, considering the size of each room, makes you feel inside a cell. Also they don't warn you online that the room has no window. All these things together, plus some other smaller issues which aren't worth to mention, made me write this review. The staff is not particularly nice or helpful. It should definitely be a super budget place and it costs like an average 3-stars hotel in Penang. Two good things: good location and nice view from the terrace on top of the building.
