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"

The Prestige Hotel Penang
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"The Prestige, a newly hotel in Penang Island. The design for the hotel is incredible. From the lobby through the elevator and corridor to the room, each spot is exceptionally modern beauty design. The glasshouse cafe or restaurant where you can enjoy your welcome drink and breakfast here, the decor is really beauty and comfort. You can sit and enjoy your foods, chatting with others, taking selfie and it really felt warm. The hotel's breakfast is varied and delicious. The room is very special and nice decor, the water pressure is strong and shower in the bathroom is very comfortable. Even they provided high quality toiletries. There are many hidden light in the room, you can switch the feeling you want according to your preferences. A big screen Smart Tv is available in the room where you can listen songs or watch movies through Youtube. Beside that, the wifi is good too. I always seek for an extraordinary style for my vacation, and this really let me feel so great with overall."

Hompton by the Beach Penang
Tanjung Bungah,Penang - View on map
"Had a wonderful stay here in the newest trendy hotel in Penang. First impression was splendid as we were greeted at the lobby and shown the way to the reception on level 11. Why was the reception located at such a high level, you ask? Why, to take our breaths away with the glorious seaview, of course. The pool area was huge and airy, almost wanted to sleep there and forget about the room! But what a room it was! Spacious, elegantly designed with comfort at the top of their priority. Water pressure was great, amenities well provided, perfect room temperature and a wide window to let us further appreciate the beauty of Penang. Staff were so helpful and friendly, always checking in to see that our needs were met, engaging in conversation, made us feel very welcomed! Breakfast spread was excellent, food still hot and freshly prepared despite our lateness in waking. Again, the F&B staff were so attentive and friendly. Couldn't have enjoyed myself more! Highly recommended!"

Cititel Hotel Penang
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"I visted Penang often and have experienced staying at various hotels in Penang. So Far my preference is still Cititel Hotel which is very friendly and efficient. The check-in and checkout were hassle free (cannot recall the front desk staff names)and better still the greetings and smiles made me felt very welcome ... I love the car park located on Level 2 & 3. I can access the Lobby Lift and go straight up to my room (via choice of 4 very fast Lifts). Oh yes the Dragon, constructed using recycled mineral water plastic bottle is still being displayed in the Lobby. Great for photos!"

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.
