I was here in Penang with my uni mates to celebrate the birthday of one of my besties, Christine! I was looking for cheap and good place to stay and initially decided to stay in Tune Hotel but my friend said Tune Hotel doesn’t have parking space for customers and we need to park elsewhere with additional charge.
The Krystal Suites @ Bayan Lepas, Penang
So my bestie suggested The Krystal Suites since she heard from her friend that it’s not bad. The price is very affordable. If you book online, you’ll get special room rates. Like me, I booked for a 2 bedroom suite (5 person staying) for only RM 210. 3 girls slept in the room with a king sized bed and 2 guys slept in the room with 2 single beds. Just perfect and reasonably priced!
I’m not very sure whether it’s the comfortable bed or I’m too tired but I fell asleep quite fast! This is a miracle because I normally couldn’t sleep on unfamiliar beds. The living room is quite clean although the sofa looked a bit worn out. We don’t really mind though because we just need a place to sleep. The Krystal Suites is actually a serviced apartment so it comes with a kitchen too! I don’t dare to take their coffee and tea packs though cos I don’t know how long it’s been there and there’s no expiry date on the packaging LOL!
There’s one funny thing in our suite: Most of the stuff there is slanted to one side! The TV is slanted towards right side and the photo frame and lamp is slanted towards left side.
If you came to Penang by air, the location of this hotel is just perfect because it’s situated at Bayan Lepas and it’s only 10 minutes away from Penang International Airport.
