Hotel Continental Penang
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. The location is great for Georgetown as it is convenient for the van drivers and easy to walk to the many venues nearby.The staff are great too. There is an ATM across the street and a taxi stand on the street outside and a convenience store 2 doors down. It is quiet and the breakfast is simple but good. Good value for your money. "

Eastern And Oriental Hotel
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"Georgetown is a lovely place that reminds me of what Singapore used to look like when I was a child, when Fullerton Hotel was still a functioning general post office. And E&O, built by the Sarkies Brothers, reminds me of a Raffles Hotel without any pretentiousness. I think I appreciated E&O very much because of the way I travelled to Penang - by rickety train ride from Singapore to KL, from KL to Butterworth via coach and Butterworth via Georgetown via its antiquated ferry. As I approached the Ferry Terminal at Georgetown I was just thrilled. It felt like a trip back to a time when there were hardly any skycrapers to speak of. It just felt like a sense of Singapore in the early 70s; when Singapore River was still teeming with bumboats and large lorries plieds its narrow banks. But Georgetown is never as busy and bustling as Singapore. A five-minute taxi ride brought me to the hotel and I was just grateful to be able to talk to a hotel receptionist who was able to speak good English - and intuitive for a change. The staff were happy to change the room I had reserved as I preferred a room with twin beds rather than a room with a double bed. I loved the generous space the suite had. The bath room was great, as expected, but I was really taken by the generous view of the sea. I kept the windows open to get a sound of the sea in the evening. At night, my son said he saw bats. What a wicked and mysterious touch to the charm. The pool was small but I like the fact it is shaded nicely with palm trees around it. The sunset was beautiful and the pillows were firm and many. We even had beautifully made sarongs to wear to the pool. Breakfast comes with waffles - how grand. My son and I went around taking lots of photos. We just regret not checking out the wing where Herman Hesse stayed at. "

Berjaya Penang Hotel
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"I stayed at Berjaya Georgetown hotel and here are my feedbacks: (1) Hotel is opposite the Adventist Hospital so it is very convenient for foreigners, especially Indonesia from Sumatra, seeking treatments at the hospital or relatives visiting the patient there. This is the only reason I see why this hotel can still 'survive' until now. (2) Check-in was smooth and fast. The front-desk was friendly. The lift was working just fine. (3) Although I booked a single room for 1 person, I was very surprise by how small the room was. (4) The room's carpet was not very clean and smell strange. (5) The air-condition keeps making this awful noise that it won't stop, and I was not able to control the temperature in the room as the controller was not working. (6) I was given a high floor as requested, with partial view of the beach front. But on the other side, it was blocked by this condominium next door whereby you can see every actions that is going on on the other side if you don't draw up the curtains, and vice verse. Really lack of privacy. (6) Another horrible noise was the constant slamming of doors in the morning or night when the gusts goes out or comes back. Not recommended for any businessman that needs a good night sleep. (7) The breakfast was the SAME every day. The coffee or tea was only available (from the kitchen) upon request. Overall my stay was rather depressing. Everything is OLD and not lively at all. One would expect Berjaya Group which has the famous Times Square at KL to have some kind of basic standards and reputation to maintain.""

Hotel Penaga
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"My 15 year old daughter & I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff were pleasant & helpful while the garden & pool was lovely. This is one of the only 4 star hotels in Georgetown with a pool. It was lovely to take a dip in the afternoon to cool off after a day's site seeing. We had a small problem with our toilet on the first morning but this was fixed by the staff immediately. I also needed an adapter to charge my phone & within a few minutes of making the request the adapter was delivered to my room.We loved the layout & decor of our room as well. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a balcony room as well with a view of the garden. This hotel is close enough to walk to many of the city's sites. We would definately stay here again. "

One Pacific Hotel & Serviced Apartments
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"Quite new hotel. Room spacious and super clean. Bed are nice, spacious bathroom with hot shower. Value for money, easy to go anywhere georgetown area, penang hill, gurney, no hustle so far. No jammed so far. Travel using grab so easy at anytime. the negative: Inside hotel Coffee house/restaurant open until 6-7pm, so at nite if you are hungry you need to buy food outside the hotel, opposite there is a kopitiam cafe inside the specialist hospital last call to order food at 9pm. Beside the hospital have mamak restaurant Kapitan. Not so bad. In the same hotel building at ground floor there is 7-eleven. My room is at 7th floor, room 707, because all floor are tiles, and brick walls, i can hear lift bells, people walk and talk quite loud because of the echo. its happen sometimes, depends of your room neighbor i guess. Maybe the hotel management need to do something about it. The door its not sound proof at all. thats all my review. Anyway we have fun in penang. "

Summer Tree Hotel Penang
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"Stayed here for 5D4N, and my experience was good. Hotel feels new, and feels luxurious even though it was a 3-star hotel. Well-prepared facilities, friendly staff, excellent location (walking distance to food courts). The only drawback I could think of is the optional buffet breakfast of RM15 per person which is slightly on the high side. Otherwise, if I have another work-related travel to Penang around Georgetown, this hotel would definitely be my 1st choice."

More about Georgetown

Georgetown spreads over part of Penang’s east coast. It’s the administrative seat of the island, and hotels in Georgetown are the likeliest place for tourists to stay while visiting Penang. Its colonial Esplanade and Chinese and Indian neighborhoods are fascinating places to explore.

Penang is distinct from greater Malaysia. Its international atmosphere is more pronounced, and there are many more Chinese than ethnic Malays living here. It ranks with Malacca when it comes to historical character, and it’s proximity to Thailand means it’s a popular side trip from both Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.

Travelers can hire a trishaw and explore the tip of the Georgetown peninsula. Chinatown and Little India are next-door to each other, with sites including Kuan Yin Teng, Penang Chinese Town Hall and St George’s Church all in the same vicinity. Further out, but still in the same area, is Khoo Kongsi clan house, with its intricate Chinese carvings. Other grand structures in the area are Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and Pinang Peranakan Mansion.

The cultural dynamic of Penang is unique. In addition to its Chinese- and Indian-style temples and colonial churches, it also has a Thai-Buddhist temple, Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram. For an overview of local history and culture, head to the Penang Museum, near Georgetown’s founding point at Fort Cornwallis.

The city has countless hotels, and they cater mainly to international tourists intrigued by the city’s recent inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Accommodation in Georgetown includes cozy inns in heritage buildings and lavish five-star giants. The biggest hotels are in reach of KOMTAR, Prangin Mall, Penang Time Square and other shopping centers. An even greater selection is on Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, near New World Park theme park.

Penang is well connected to the rest of Southeast Asia. Ferries from Langkawi, Medan and Butterworth land at the ferry terminals off of Pengkalan Weld. Tanjung City Marina, Penang Yacht Club and Chew’s Jetty are also here welcoming yachters on holiday. It's possible to take an overnight train from here to both Singapore and Bangkok, making it a popular destination for visa trips.
