GLOW Penang, Penang
At 8am, the noise of de swimming pool pump was coming from next to the wall of the room (No. 311 smoking room) . Remember to hang "come back later" card if you wouldn't want the cleaner to knock your door at 9.30am. Swimming pool cafe closed at 9pm which is too early. Why the lift advertisement is still written there closing at 12am??? Misleading and not updated. The Room was so echo and outside could hear you just talking because the carpet was just a 8-piece size of A4 infront of the bed. Not very soundproof. Tq
