Dear Macalister Hotel Team, I had the pleasure of staying at your hotel during a leisure trip to Penang with my sisters, from August 9th to August 12th. Unfortunately, I experienced a moment of distress when I realized I had left behind a gold bangle of significant sentimental value upon returning to Singapore. In my moment of panic, I immediately reached out to your hotel staff, explaining the situation and fervently requesting assistance in locating my precious possession. The responsiveness and dedication demonstrated by your team were truly remarkable. I was relieved and overjoyed to receive a text just two hours later, informing me that my gold bangle had been found and promptly returned to a friend. I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the outstanding service provided by your team. The swift and effective resolution of this matter not only saved a cherished memento but also showcased the level of professionalism and commitment to guest satisfaction at Macalister Hotel. Thank you once again for going above and beyond to ensure a positive experience for your guests. My sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Macalister Hotel, and your exceptional service has left a lasting impression. I will undoubtedly recommend your establishment to friends and family, and I look forward to the opportunity to stay with you again in the future.

Another WoW hotel completed with amenities amd modern design that make you feel cozy + make tireness gone away. Room was spacious and clean but little improvement on the maintainance side as the rotten wooden window can be seen obvious when the moment opened up the curtain. AC not really cold enough due to the design and allocation of AC grill Overall still good and easy to move around & stomach wont be get hungry as eateries from left to right on your choice. Shall be back again when in Town Area

the location was good, near food court, mini mart. we stay there for 3 nights and the room facilities was very complete. toiletries, towel, hairdryer, scales. at first when we arrived, we were placed in the room at the third floor, but because there's trouble in the air con, we were given the upgraded room with big bath room. this's a boutique hotels with modern style.

I had a late check-in at the hotel, but the reception staff were very helpful and accommodating. Despite the late hour, they were friendly and efficient in getting me checked in and settled into my room. It was much appreciated after a long day of travel. It's hotel with a modern design and found it to be very clean. Happy to found a microwave to heat our takeaways. However, I had a difficult time finding parking in the area. Overall, the hotel was enjoyable, but the lack of convenient parking was a bit of a drawback. It would be great if they have a reserved parking spots for hotel guests.

Location is very convenient, easy to get food. Located at city centre, nearby have convenient mart, cafe and hawker centre. Overall is ok. But I feel the room a bit small. I booked for a Deluxe King, basically the room is only for sleeping, not much space in the room.

This place was overall amazingly clean and beautiful, from the lobby to the room. I stayed for 3 nights and I was well rested with the comfy pillows and sheets! Also, great service from the front desk personnel upon checking in and out! Staffs were warm, friendly and well mannered ☺️. Room was also spacious and homey enough and essentials were provided. Definitely would come back here next time! Thank you for the great hospitality!

Modern, newly renovated hotel. Spacious room and very clean. Warm hospitality received. Surrounded by nearby shops, recommended to take Grab as parking is a challenge. Highly recommended. Will definitely come back!

This hotel was a wonderful surprise! It was newly renovated in a very sophisticated style. The rooms were spacious and modern and the breakfast, served at the cafe on the ground floor was delicious. The only detractor (not for us) was the location which was a few kms from the centre of Georgetown but with the ready availability of GRAB cars this was no problem.
