A new building, clean room, clean bathroom. the staff are great, location is really strategic, near so many eating places. room is a bit small, but still comfortable. near to mall, near to Island hospital. breakfast is okay, some days are great, some days could be improved. baby cot provided. gonna be coming back again, really enjoyed our stay here. want to extend but, on the weekend they are full. if you want to stay until weekend, make sure to book altogether, every weekend all the hotels in penang are fully booked.

Great hotel to stay, lots of food stalls around the hotel, will come back to Glow again if travelling to Penang.
The room is small, but comfy and has enough amenities for 3 stars hotel. The location is very convenient, either side of this hotel is the food court, and Komtar bus station is within walking distance from this hotel (about 15 minutes). But, I will suggest not to have breakfast in this hotel because the breakfast spread was very limited, and the only tasty thing for me is the instant coffee.
Great air pressure at the shower
Nice hotel and great environment
Good location with decent prices

Towels weren't in room
The room didn't have towels when I arrived. I called reception and was told to wait 4 hours until 6pm, There were still no towels at 8pm. I walked to reception and was told that maybe the towels were already in my room and to go check. I explained that I had just come from the room. FInally towels were delivered after 6 hours of waiting.

poorly managed
hot water was not running, I came out of the shower, no towel provided. I had to call to get towel but it was too late, my body dried and I was so cold waiting with my wet body. the towel provided was torn here and there. The other room was OK, maybe only my room sucks.
