DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang
Batu Ferringhi,Penang - View on map
"Stayed: 2 Night, Sky Terrace Suite Thumbs up: Chris meeting us upon arrival at the lobby & gave us speedy check in. Ensuring us for a room as we were early. Went for lunch & chris met us at the hotel’s restaurant( makan kitchen) personally to pass the room cards to us ensuring everything is all ready. Shanaka: for always checking up on my partner & i. Asking about the quality of the food & remembered that we didnt finished our nasi goreng even asked if there was something wrong. Went the extra miles to find a florist near the hotel that i could arrange for flower delivery for my partner. Beautiful room, nice view. Warm staffs from start to end. Truly a DoubleTree standard. The best DoubleTree in Malaysia. Staffs from JB & KL should learn from Penang as staffs here are way more warmer & friendlier. "

Flamingo Hotel by the Beach
Tanjung Bungah,Penang - View on map
"I travel to Penang frequently, it can be difficult to find a descent hotel there, they are either extremely expensive or not very nice. Many hotels in Penang are horribly run often with my bare minimum of a clean room not being met, and often the staff can be downright miserable. But the Flamingo is the exception. The have clean, nice rooms and a friendly staff. The pool and pool bar are very relaxing, the bar tender is friendly and makes a great pina colada. The breakfast is the best I have found in Penang even at much pricier resorts. The location is great. Far from the airport but, central to Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi."

The Light Hotel Penang
Seberang Jaya,Penang - View on map
"It was awesome being a guest at The Light Hotel in Penang. It is not on the island itself. But for us this was a bonus because the surrounding was not so crowded. All in all it was a very good experience. Hotel/building, stuff, breakfast, environment were perfect. We really felt comfortable. We totally recommand this hotel."

AC Hotels by Marriott Penang
Bayan Lepas,Penang - View on map
"The lobby staff was very friendly as i check in. The porter was very kind to carry our luggage although we only have little luggage. We stay at top floor (15th floor) but the lift was fast to reach from lobby. Room and Interiors was the best that i ever stayed in all Malaysia Hotels. Their fittings and deco was modern which match the four star hotel. Breakfast buffet was OK to me although very little choice but they do provide all the famous like roti canai, nasi lemak, pancake and etc but taste was not too bad. Location was in the residential area in Penang Island. The view from window was magnificient. If public transport in Penang is very convenient then this hotel can be recommended or else have to have a car. "

More about Penang

From its humble beginnings as a trading port, the city of Penang has evolved over the last two centuries into a tourist destination prized for its beaches, historic architecture, affordable accommodation and amazing food. Accommodation spans quaint hotels and inns in historic neighborhoods and luxury beach resorts. The latter are more popular, as most tourists prefer to venture into the colonial enclaves by day, returning to the beaches and resort restaurants and clubs before nightfall.

Penang's capital city, Georgetown, was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status for its fantastic historic neighborhoods. Highlights include Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and its boutique accommodation, Fort Cornwallis, and the Old City Hall. The hotels in Georgetown are well located for visiting temples and museums.

The newest and most extensive beach resorts are at Batu Ferringhi. It sits on the northern rim of the island and features an enviable spread of seafood restaurants and boutiques along the beach. So many Penang hotels are found here that competition drives down prices, especially in the off-season.

Penang International Airport is one of the best in Malaysia, and it operates flights to major cities across Southeast Asia and the South Pacific. Peak season begins right before Christmas and continues through Chinese New Year, which usually falls in late January or early February. Hotels in Penang charge the highest rates at this time, with the best deals are offered to early bookers.
