Good enough for a night.
Good for a night's stay, property was new and modern. However we had issues with the reception of the TV, and the management was not helpful. Nevertheless it provided its purpose for a restful night.

Early check-in was a DEALBREAKER :)
Not bad, value for price. Was allowed to do a (very) early check-in for the small sum of RM50 which is superb. I chose this hotel just for this reason! Strategic location esp. if you require to be at the airport in the morning, due to the infamous Penang traffic jams in rush-hour traffic. Highly recommended. There is also a bakery/food outlet just downstairs with excellent prices, and a supermart (Tesco) is just around the corner. Very convenient for travelers with family. I have listed this as budget but I would be happy to rate the décor as 3.5 t 4.0 stars quality, ie very good value for money. We got a king bed though, which was a bit thin... if you have issues then try calling reception in advance to see if they have alternative rooms/mattresses.

Great hotel if the location suits you.
This is a good priced modern hotel half-way between the airport and Georgetown (the heart of Penang). For us it was a great location as we have friends in the area...otherwise we may have opted for Georgetown. Staff were lovely and the hotel is next to a very large Tesco.

First Stay in U-Hotel in Penang
We booked this hotel for the fact it was new and seemed to be in a good location. We were not disappointed, service was good and friendly, location was good, rooms were clean and comfortable. There were eateries within walking distance from the hotel.
