Negative Reviews


Suites do not have a kitchen

Several guests booked the suites at the Vistana Penang Bukit Jambul expecting apartment like facilities with a kitchen but were disappointed. While some rooms did not have kitchens, others had kitchens that were locked and inaccessible. The sofa beds provided are not as spacious as some guests expected.


Problems with some appliances

One guest said that the Wi-Fi was iffy and unreliable while others said that the air conditioner was either noisy or not working properly.


Pool small and over crowded

Some guests felt that the pool is not a suitable type for a leisure hotel and that it is too small for the number of people looking to use it. One or two guests also felt that the pool's level of cleanliness and maintenance left a lot to be desired.
