Jen Penang Georgetown by Shangri-La
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"we stayed 5 nights with the traders hotel in georgetown with our two kids (7 and 2) everything was perfect from the exit of the cab. the welcome was warm, the checkin smooth, the rooms very clean even-though it may need some refresh (eg the carpet start to be a bit old). we had a baby coat and the kind size bed was big enough for the parents and the oldest child. the breakfast was very good with an amazing choice. we had a room with the "traders club", providing drinks and snacks during the day and a aperitive-dinner between 6 to 8pm. it was very good as well and very enjoyable to have the possibility to have a quick diner at the hotel with the kids after a long day visiting. the location is great as well, close to 3 shopping malls, lots of bus regular lines and reasonable walking distance from the town center. the hotel provides a free shuttle to the beach and the shangri-la facilities, which is well appreciated by the kids. would we come back to georgetown, we would go back the the traders hotel !

Eastern And Oriental Hotel
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"Georgetown is a lovely place that reminds me of what Singapore used to look like when I was a child, when Fullerton Hotel was still a functioning general post office. And E&O, built by the Sarkies Brothers, reminds me of a Raffles Hotel without any pretentiousness. I think I appreciated E&O very much because of the way I travelled to Penang - by rickety train ride from Singapore to KL, from KL to Butterworth via coach and Butterworth via Georgetown via its antiquated ferry. As I approached the Ferry Terminal at Georgetown I was just thrilled. It felt like a trip back to a time when there were hardly any skycrapers to speak of. It just felt like a sense of Singapore in the early 70s; when Singapore River was still teeming with bumboats and large lorries plieds its narrow banks. But Georgetown is never as busy and bustling as Singapore. A five-minute taxi ride brought me to the hotel and I was just grateful to be able to talk to a hotel receptionist who was able to speak good English - and intuitive for a change. The staff were happy to change the room I had reserved as I preferred a room with twin beds rather than a room with a double bed. I loved the generous space the suite had. The bath room was great, as expected, but I was really taken by the generous view of the sea. I kept the windows open to get a sound of the sea in the evening. At night, my son said he saw bats. What a wicked and mysterious touch to the charm. The pool was small but I like the fact it is shaded nicely with palm trees around it. The sunset was beautiful and the pillows were firm and many. We even had beautifully made sarongs to wear to the pool. Breakfast comes with waffles - how grand. My son and I went around taking lots of photos. We just regret not checking out the wing where Herman Hesse stayed at. "

Cititel Hotel Penang

"We have tried several hotels in Georgetown before and this is the best! The location is perfect.. we can just walk to some famous food restaurants and convenient stores. The staff are super friendly especially to our 2 year-old daughter. The hotel did not have much activities for kids but we didnt care because we were there to explore georgetown not the hotel. Room is comfortable and clean."

The Wembley - A St Giles Hotel Penang
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"I was traveling here with my fiancé, on more of a personal business and work holiday. I chose the St Goles Wembley based on their wifi connection as I work online, and this was the no. 1 important factor for me. Their wifi was great, and I had zero troubles, which made my travel stay even that much easier. The location is really great, within walking distance to all the local Georgetown icons. And I must say, the staff really make this place. From our housekeeping staff (Ranil) to the staff at the breakfast buffet, to all the staff members in the lobby and outside the hotel, everyone was really pleasant and always attentive. Great job from everyone at the St Giles Wembley, I will definitely be booking my stay here again if in in Penang again. "

Hotel Continental Penang

"We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. The location is great for Georgetown as it is convenient for the van drivers and easy to walk to the many venues nearby.The staff are great too. There is an ATM across the street and a taxi stand on the street outside and a convenience store 2 doors down. It is quiet and the breakfast is simple but good. Good value for your money. "

Hotel Penaga
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"My 15 year old daughter & I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff were pleasant & helpful while the garden & pool was lovely. This is one of the only 4 star hotels in Georgetown with a pool. It was lovely to take a dip in the afternoon to cool off after a day's site seeing. We had a small problem with our toilet on the first morning but this was fixed by the staff immediately. I also needed an adapter to charge my phone & within a few minutes of making the request the adapter was delivered to my room.We loved the layout & decor of our room as well. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a balcony room as well with a view of the garden. This hotel is close enough to walk to many of the city's sites. We would definately stay here again. "

Royale Chulan Penang
Georgetown,Georgetown - View on map
"This was a memory lane trip for me and first for my wife. Selected the Royale Chilean Hotel as best place to stay in Georgetown. I don't regret my choice, staff are the best, they are friendly, helpfully and efficient. The room was big enough for us, with large bed and we'll set out bathroom. Chose Breakfast on booking for each day and was not disappointed with the food available, this covered varieties for and culture or religion. I fully recommend this hotel to any traveller to Penang."

More about Georgetown

Georgetown spreads over part of Penang’s east coast. It’s the administrative seat of the island, and hotels in Georgetown are the likeliest place for tourists to stay while visiting Penang. Its colonial Esplanade and Chinese and Indian neighborhoods are fascinating places to explore.

Penang is distinct from greater Malaysia. Its international atmosphere is more pronounced, and there are many more Chinese than ethnic Malays living here. It ranks with Malacca when it comes to historical character, and it’s proximity to Thailand means it’s a popular side trip from both Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.

Travelers can hire a trishaw and explore the tip of the Georgetown peninsula. Chinatown and Little India are next-door to each other, with sites including Kuan Yin Teng, Penang Chinese Town Hall and St George’s Church all in the same vicinity. Further out, but still in the same area, is Khoo Kongsi clan house, with its intricate Chinese carvings. Other grand structures in the area are Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and Pinang Peranakan Mansion.

The cultural dynamic of Penang is unique. In addition to its Chinese- and Indian-style temples and colonial churches, it also has a Thai-Buddhist temple, Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram. For an overview of local history and culture, head to the Penang Museum, near Georgetown’s founding point at Fort Cornwallis.

The city has countless hotels, and they cater mainly to international tourists intrigued by the city’s recent inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Accommodation in Georgetown includes cozy inns in heritage buildings and lavish five-star giants. The biggest hotels are in reach of KOMTAR, Prangin Mall, Penang Time Square and other shopping centers. An even greater selection is on Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, near New World Park theme park.

Penang is well connected to the rest of Southeast Asia. Ferries from Langkawi, Medan and Butterworth land at the ferry terminals off of Pengkalan Weld. Tanjung City Marina, Penang Yacht Club and Chew’s Jetty are also here welcoming yachters on holiday. It's possible to take an overnight train from here to both Singapore and Bangkok, making it a popular destination for visa trips.
