As I had a meeting just on the mainland side of the causeway, we decided to try the new Eastin on Penang at on the recommendation of a friend and save the drive up to Georgetown. The hotel is well signposted once you cross the causeway and head towards Bayan Lepas, so easy to find. On arrival it turns out that I'd managed to book for the following week by mistake! This was quickly and efficiently sorted out at reception and all with a smile. The room was a deluxe with sea view and whilst small, was well appointed with everything you would expect. There was free (and fast) wi-fi internet too, which is a pleasant change from many Malaysia/Singapore hotels. The bed was super comfortable and very relaxing after the drive up from KL. The view was nice and sunrise over the nearby island was spectacular. Nearby is the Queensbay Mall and dirctly behind the hotel are a few rows of shops with a couple of bars mixed in for good measure. Don't be put off by the industrial description of Bayan Lepas, Queensbay is a realy nice up and coming area and I may just have my eye on an apartment there following our stay! Good breakfast with all the usual choices of eastern and western food. All in all, a nice hotel that deserves to get custom with the mainland, Georgetown and the airport all within easy reach.
EASTIN Penang is very new to me even i travelled many time to Penang. Thus, this time i decided to re-route my usual stay from Georgetown to Bayan Lepas. Soon, i realise Eastin gave me the 1st impression of good hospitality when engaged with the receptionist. The pool is very nice and clean with good view of Bayan Lepas. The hotel is closeby with Queensbay Hotel and easy access to Georgetown appx. 15mins. Overall, it was a good stay and worth every penny.
Eastin Hotel Review”
Eastin hotel is located in a very strategic area. For a business traveler, the near proximity to the Bayan Lepas industrial area and the Penang bridge linking to Butterworth cannot be better emphasised. If you are staying in the Gelugor or Georgetown area where more hotels are located, you will find it slightly stressful to get past traffic jams in the morning to get to the industrial zones. The hotel itself is also relatively new with all the facilities needed for a good stay. You also can find a good selection of food on the breakfast buffet. The only thing that needs improvement is the weak link that I had experienced when I was logging on at night to check my mails. The connection was intermittent and I had to log in multiple times to get the mails sent out.
Pleasant Stay in Eastin Hotel Penang”
Overall a very pleasant stay in Eastin Hotel Penang. The hotel has renovated, so the rooms and lobby area looks really great. The Christmas decoration is eye-catching. Staff at the reception are so friendly but the check-in and check-out process took a little bit too long with so many people queuing eventhough the time I check-in and check-out should be off-peak. The service time per customer is about 10-15 minutes. Suggest Hotel to allocate more staff at the reception counter. I requested a large bed as I had a 6 years old kid travelling with me and the staff at the reception offered a helping hand (by the time I check-in, it was 8 pm at night and all rooms with large bed is taken up but she do her very best to get a large bed for me, appreciate it so much) and when I get into the room, everything has been arrange and I have got a large bed. The housekeeping was very fast too, thumbs up. My room is at 13 floor facing the city. The gym area and swimming pool are good as well, just that the pool is a little bit too small. Unfortunately I didn't book the breakfast when I reserve my room or else I could try the food in the hotel. The food looks great with so many varieties. Pass by while going to swimming pool and gym area ^_^ The ramp at the parking area is a bit narrow so you need to drive carefully when you park your car at the basement. There would be a high possibility that you might just scratch your car. There was 1 night that I came back quite late, around midnight and saw a guest screaming, yelling and quarreling with the hotel staff at the front desk. Not sure what had happen but overall I can feel the hotel staff handled it very well, politely and patiently. And the guest who scream and yell claimed himself to be a lawyer...what a shame because he just act like a rogue. The hotel is very near to Queensbay Mall (Turn left after you get out from lobby) and a lot of eateries, finding food is not a problem. The Voice Cafe serving giant bowl ramen is jus
Pleasant and enjoyable for whole family”
The Eastin Deluxe Suite is superb, spacious and comfortable. The Executive club benefits that comes together with it simply makes the stay even more comfortable. The toilet bowl comes with manual bidet switch, very conveninet. Spacious bathroom. Breakfast was good. Best is, not much crowds. Gym in good condition and spacious, many workout machines. Only set back is the swimming pool a bit small, not many lounging chairs. Queensbaymall, the shopping complex is within walking distance, don't need to drive out. Lots of eateries surrounding the area. Very convenient for us who travel to Bayan Lepas area and across the Penang Briddge without having to go through the maddening Georgetown's traffic jams. Staff are very accommodating with my request. Good patient hotel staff. Ample car park, easy access with just the hotel room card. Splendid !
Location is near to queensbay mall!! But abit far ”
I have chosen to stay in Eastin Hotel Penang during peak season holiday. I managed to check in earlier and the front liner reception stuff are rivière excellent service greeting us with warmy smile and assists us to check in earlier! Was very satisfied to this! You will feel secure and comfortable to stayed in this hotel due to the you need to have your room key card in order to access to the floor level. The room are comfortable which occupied with LCD tv, and even got ironing tools in our room! Location:- The location are near to queensbay mall ( the largest shopping mall in Penang )and bayan airport~ but abit far from Penang town area~unless you are driving, if not it was not really recommended to stay here due to the location is quite far away from town about 11km which takes about 20minutes to town~ if you are traveling alone, try to get the hotel tour services as the taxi by meter is very expensive! Costs bout rm40 per trip to town area! Highly not recommended to tk taxi~
Good location with friendly staff”
The best hotel near bayan lepas, central location between gurney and airport. Five to ten minutes walking distance to queensbay mall where u can find eateries, shopping and banks. Staffs are friendly and informative, even the security abang will chit chat with u while u waiting for your transport. Will definitely stay again when back in Penang.
Comfortable night at Eastin Hotel Penang”
I was understand that this Eastin Hotel Penang was new build and operate for not more than 2years old, but the maintenance of the hotel is very good, especially on the bathroom sink and shower place.. Although I didnt spent much time on the stay at Eastin Hotel Penang, I should revisit them when I traveling to Penang in future.
Nice, clean and good service hotel”
went to penang again and this time we stayed in eastin because my friend wanted a modern looking hotel. and we found it. this hotel is situated right next to queensbay mall which was very convenient for us and its actually quite near the penang bridge. the room was clean and there was a lcd screen tv. my bf loved it. but the downside was there wasnt any sports channel. they clean our room everyday and mineral water bottles were provided. we went to look around at the gym and pool. gym has quite a few equipment and they all look new. there was also a room furnished with mirrors for yoga and dancing. the pool was clean but as it was raining most of the time we didnt manage to go for a swim. all in all, it was a pleasant stay in eastin and we will defnitely go back again.
New hotel near queensbay mall”
There are only a handful of hotel to stay around bayan lepas area and Eastin Hotel is the best among all. Agoda hotel rates makes it cheaper than the rest as well. I can easily settle my meals and ammenities at the nearby mall. Room is quite small but that is fine for me. Free wifi in room is a plus.
Location and great stay with quiet room”
My second attempt to stay in Eastin Hotel Penang. The Deluxe Sea View room is indeed facing the sea but you will be looking at the roof top of the shops and far across the shops you could see the sea which is still ok. The sea view room is much much quieter than the hill view room as it is not facing the highway. Travelling to the hotel is more convenient as there is an exit from the highway which could access to the hotel (indirectly). In comparatively with hotels at gurney side, it is easier to reach this hotel without traffic jams. With the shopping centre just by the side of the hotel, it is convenient to get food and shopping. Good hotel and reasonable priced.
New & Comfortable Hotel”
this is my first own booked 5 star hotel. overall this hotel is great and worth for a stay. the room is spacious enough for a couple and very comfortable. i love the bed and pillow so much... anyhow, there is certain things that i am not so satisfy is the swimming pool is small and the surrounding not attractive. another thing is the underground car park is slight weird design and space is small and park slot is less. you can park your car outside the hotel if you dont mind. the location of the hotel is quite strategy and just beside the queenbay mall. it's just in front of the main road and get you easily reach your destination without turning here and there. for night life lover, beside this hotel having some cafe, pub, lounge and ktv. overall i satisfy with eastin hotel penang~~ cheers
Great location and service”
The Eastin Hotel is conveniently located near Queens Bay shopping mall (5 mins wallk). I also chose it because it is only 10 minutes from the airport. My flight arrive at midnight and I was glad to get there within a short time, received a great welcome and be in my room for a good rest. Breakfast was full of choices and service with a smile. I will stay here again if I need to catch an early flight out of Penang.
Eastin Hotel Penang”
This is already my second stay at Eastin Hotel Penang. I am sure it is not my last. Paid a visit to the shopping mall which is about 5 to 10 minutes walk from hotel building. You will find everything you would need as the mall is huge! Great stay with the price tag!!
Best Hotel in Bayan Lepas”
If you visit Bayan Lepas, Penang, this is the hotel for you. Food is good, location is good and Queensbay Mall is just 2 min walking distance from the hotel.
Clean and Comfy Bed (Deluxe - Hill View)”
Eastin is always my choice of stay 1-2 days before I leave Penang. They do practice strict check-in time but you can leave your luggage bags at concierge. Big shopping mall and lots of eateries within 5 mins walk away. Trip to Design Village Outlet Mall, via 2nd bridge, is 30 mins by car. We love J Garden near the hotel and always drop by for at least 1 meal during our stay at Eastin.
Dear Chye: Thank you so much for your lovely review of our hotel. We are pleased that you had a pleasant stay with us. We do hope to welcome you back again very soon. Have a wonderful week ahead. Warmest regards, Stephanie Lee, Marcom Manager, Eastin Hotel Penang
