Unacceptable breakfast situation in an old but renovated hotel that cannot call itself 5* anymore.

There is no way the hotel will redeem itself but in the 2 days we have been here our experience has not been what people here are describing. The breakfast is what annoyed us the most and it was what made me write the review while still being in the hotel. It is unacceptable to form lines while tables are empty. It is also unacceptable to run out of simple things like nutella while the guy at the pancake station was hogging it and giving barely enough to cover half of one. The staff obviously cannot handle too many people and it is kind of laughable that before even the breakfast ends you can actually run out of some stuff - and especially things that they don’t even have to make themselves. That is a very far cry from 5 stars. We asked for housekeeping to come late as we were in the room when they first arrived. When we came back it was obvious they had not cleaned anything. The room still had that very little amount of sand we brought in with our sandals, the bed sheets needed changing but were not changed and the amenities like Q-tips were not refilled. Now lets talk about the terrible food they serve at the bar/restaurant by the beach but you know what, don’t take my word for it, read the mediocre reviews it has gathered one after the other. Remove the Shangri-La name and this hotel is miles below the others that bear its name. I guess because it is cheaper than the other Shangri-La hotels I have been to, I should expect different standards. This has been noted and I will probably not choose this chain or recommend it in the future - except from the ones I have already been to and were good. I will stick to hotels that keep the same standards everywhere. For the price? Yeah it is a good hotel. But if you come here expecting the usual Shangri-La you may have visited in other countries, you will be disappointed. At least the hotel has obviously been renovated at some point before, that is something.

Truthfully Shang Penang

Singapore, Singapore

We really love the lush greenery, the vast landscape this resort has. So big, we didn't finish our walk in a day. We stay at the idyllic Rasa Wing, with a cute little garden at the veranda. My folks has endless photo taking at this beautiful resort. Room wasn't ready upon check-in, the check-in staff was kind to guide us to our room and explained about the feature of the room, which has the annoying alarm feature. Gym and pool was just about right. I had a relaxing time enjoying their facility. I'd love to come back to this hotel again.
