Bayview Hotel Georgetown
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"1st time we came to Penang, we stayed here because of the location. It is at the very top of jalan penang and there are so many things around. Bars behind the hotel, places to eat within 2 minutes walk, street market within 3 minutes and at the end of the street market, shopping centers are pretty much accross the road! Although there are other hotels that are located on jalan penang itself, bayview still wins hands down on location. The fact that its at the top of the street means a slightly quieter atmosphere. I mean, you don't want to step out of the hotel 1st thing in the morning to see some locals sleeping on the street, do you? Because that's what you'd get if you stay at the hotels on jalan penang. The band they constantly have performing each night is very good too. Sometimes after a hot day walking around or shopping or whatever you do in penang, you just want to relax and have a drink or two and listen to the band singing your all time favourites and do shout outs when you request a song (or 10!). We came back to penang a year later. And even though we originally wanted to stay in a resort around batu ferringhi, we decided we loved bayview the 1st time and we'd show that appreciation by returning. And were we glad we did. We arrived in the island quite late and was exhausted. We checked in at about 11:30 pm and Izhan (forgot the spelling of the name) asked if this was our first time in penang, so we told him we were there the previous year. After what seemed like 5 seconds, he thanked us for returning to bayview and upgraded us from superior room to premier! That's not even the next level of room up (superior then deluxe then premier then suite). At 11:30 at night after a long flight, I don't ever remember having much energy but I was jumping up and down. So thank you! Overall, aside from location, value, facilities available and all other things they advertise, experience like mine is not something you always get at other hotels. Thumbs up"

Royale Chulan Penang
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"Our stay at The Royale Bintang Penang Hotel was a really enjoyable stay. The hotel is very conveniently located to anything and everything you would want to see. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant also provides a very comprehensive and well rounded morning buffet. The manager who greeted and seated us was especially pleasant and it was a nice welcome. I would also like to say that management is also very pleasant. I wanted to mention this because we ran into a nicely dressed gentlemen who must have been the general manager in the elevator and then outside the restaurant. I am sorry I didn't get his name, but he took time to explain some of the history of his hotel. His warm and friendly manner was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to have a memorable stay in Penang."

Summer Tree Hotel Penang
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"This hotel looks really new and well maintained. Rooms are excellent, clean and comes with quite a few facilities . This hotel deserves a better rating if it wasn't for a few glaring issues. The worst is the parking, the picture you see of the parking bay here is nearly all of the bays available. The hotel has six floors, with the cheap pricing, it's a guarantee the hotel has high occupancy and constantly fully occupied bays. It does not help that the handicap bay isn't located at the front entrance. Normally, you'd want a cheap price, but for this hotel the pricing attracted a lot of guests who were non-compliant with safety SOPs. I have seen guests each day who do not wear masks and overpack the lifts, and going in and out after midnight. The cleaning staff behaviour is really unprofessional. When guests are around, do not make jokes and banter among each other and laughing loudly. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone who intend to drive in Penang. Otherwise, it is quite a lovely hotel. 2/5 if you drive. 4/5 if you don't."

Ixora Hotel Penang
Seberang Perai,Penang - View on map
"Had a one night stay during my recent business trip. Everyone was saying that this is the best hotel they had ever stay of all the business trips we travelled around Malaysia. Back to this hotel, I would say the location is quite strategic and there is a shopping mall beside this hotel. This hotel is quite near to Penang bridge so if you opt to travel to the island for a visit is definitely not a major issue but provided you must have a car to travel around to try the local food. Hotel room is spacious, clean, modern, air-conditioner is very cooling, touch and go security to access to the rooms, free wifi provided, security box, breakfast was good and comparable to Cititel Penang and Bayview Hotel in the island. This hotel is a much better choice for both business or family vacation as compare to the opposite road Pearl View Hotel which is a nightmare for me."

Iconic Hotel Prai Penang
Seberang Perai,Penang - View on map
"When I first booked the hotel, didn't know what to expect since it's located in a 'not so happening' area of Penang. What greeted me simply blew me away: a modern hotel with very friendly & attentive staff. Check in was very straightforward & since I had already informed the hotel about my wheelchair bound mum, they even had it ready for her! The staff are always smiling & greeting you at every available opportunity. They even offered free cotton candy from the cotton candy maker located next to d reception. The welcome drink and cold face towel were so refreshing too. The room is not too big but very tastefully decorated with modern fittings. The king-sized bed was massive! Very comfy & soft pillows too. All items found in d mini bar are free (coke, water bottles & a can of Chrysanthemum tea). It's an open wardrobe here. Bathrobe is provided. TV has a number of good Astro channels. Breakfast was the best: awesome variety & delicious. Free coffee at lobby. Will definitely come again."

Sunway Hotel Georgetown
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"This is a very good hotel. I love everything about it - its central location, the wonderful staff, the hardware (nice rooms), the non-smoking policy, the local food and taxi stand right outside the hotel, the free CAT bus you can catch at Komtar... Sunway Hotel has a non-smoking policy, though in reality there is 1 floor that allows smoking. The management could take the stand of disallowing smoking totally and make Sunway one of the very few hotels in Penang that does not allow indoor smoking. If guests are found to smoke in their rooms, the management should take strict action and insist that the guests abide by the non-smoking policy (or checkout), and verify that the misconduct is not repeated. Sunway has very nice hardware; the rooms are renovated and look new and pleasant. Coupled with a non-smoking policy and enforcement, it should appeal to contemporary travellers. The staff was very friendly, helpful and customer-oriented. I did not find any hotel employee who was lacking in service. For the other reviewers who rated them negatively, I think you need to remember that it takes two hands to clap; if you smile and ask them nicely, they will reciprocate in like manner. I thought their service was excellent. Extra info on the taxi fares - RM45 from the airport if you purchase a coupon from the airport limo counter outside the airport terminal; RM40 to the airport if you just take a taxi outside the hotel. I am a contented customer and will definitely stay at Sunway Hotel again for my next visit to Penang."

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.

Be sure to check out the interactive map of Penang for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
