Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities




6/10 Good

The property is very well located with lots of food outlets around. All over the facilities are OK. The mattress was worn out at one side and killed my back. Otherwise the room was fine. Upon arrival and on first evening we had to experience the one staff that was arrogantly friendly, slow and not helpful. The 'why do you bother me' attitude. All other staff was excellent. So sad! One person spoils all.

Best rate, good room for family trip
Not sure why still feeling cold after off all the aircon. Maybe the centralise aircon problem or how. Overall the stay is satisfied. It will be good if the hotel prepare slipper for the room.

10/10 Exceptional

We had such a lovely experience staying at Macalister hotel from check in to our departure. The hotel was clean and minimalist that I had wanted and expected. A lot of local foods stands/courts around as well as being close by the street art (10 mins walking for me). Worth the stay :). Big thanks to the both check in and out FD agents!

Convenient, Chic and Affordable
If you are looking for a strategic, clean, chic yet affordable hotel in the centre of Georgetown, I personally feel that this newly operated Macalister Hotel by PHC is by far a great option. Walking distance to several foodcourts with good food, the famous Lorong Selamat Char Kuey Teow, Jiao Sai mamak and more; you’ll be able to fulfil your food cravings without the hassle to drive and finding for carpark. There’s a coffee cafe, convenient store and Watson within the hotel so you can get your coffee fix, snacks and toiletries with just few steps. The room is spacious and clean while bed is big and comfy. The only downside is that the TV has limited channels. Overall is a good place to stay and will definitely return again when we travel to Penang.
