Hydro Hotel Penang

Hydro Hotel Penang is one of the many hotels available along the long stretch of Batu Ferringhi beach.

I get to know this hotel through its advertisement from newspapers and other blogs.

From the information I gather from the locals, this hotel has been around for sometime. The management just recently renovated the hotel. In fact, I believe they renovate the lobby area only.

The check in was not smooth sailing. I arrived here around 12.30pm and the room was not ready yet. I have to wait for another 30 minutes or so to check into my room.

The room is spacious and comfortable. However, traces of aging furniture, electrical sockets and amenities are quite visible. Anyway, I still stayed comfortably here. The room rate is RM150 per night and is quite reasonable although there are better options nearby.

All rooms has a balcony facing the beach. I got a bit shocked to find out that the hotel is actually surrounded by housing area.

The hotel is not exactly located beside the beach. One have to cross the overhead bridge, through the main road to reach the adjacent beach.

Hydro Hotel Penang is an ideal hotel for those who desire peaceful atmosphere as there are no entertainment outlets nearby it. A better option would be renting a car and drive to upper Batu Ferringhi for merrier environment.
