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"

Olive Tree Hotel Penang

"I have stayed at the Olive Tree Hotel in Penang multiple time and will continue to do so. The hotel provides a quiet getaway with multiple restaurants within easy walking distance of the Hotel. There is a fantastic wine store right around the corner that has great wines at affordable prices and also serves very good food. The Olive Tree has very comfortable rooms at reasonable prices. I recommend this hotel."

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. "

Rainbow Paradise Beach Resort
Tanjung Bungah,Penang - View on map
"This hotel/resort is the best value for money hotel in Penang. We paid half the price of hotels in Batu Ferringhi but certainly received far far better than half the value. The hotel is brilliantly located at Tanjung Bungha, halfway between Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi with the regular air conditioned rapid bus service travelling in both directions. [Georgetown RM2 & Batu Ferringhi RM1.40]. The suite we had was fantastic with views over both the bay and the hills.The pool area is terrific and the beach is good with all water sports at your disposal.We have now stayed at this hotel twice [having previously stayed at Batu Ferringhi 3 times] and we will be returning to Paradise Sandy Bay Beach Resort for our third stay in October."

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.
