    Review

    "Hotel was amazing. couldn't believe how cheap it was. felt like luxurious accommodation for a budget price. Would recommend to anyone we know passing through. Staff were super friendly. We arrived early, they held our bags and we went for lunch until check in time. Our room was lovely, huge comfy bed, toiletries in shower, complimentary slippers and dressing gown, umbrella in case it rained. soft drinks and water in the mini bar were free also. Bathroom was decent size with rainfall shower. Each evening on the roof you can watch sunset. There are lovely chairs and tables and a bar. Free white and red wine with ample top ups makes this a really lovely thing to do before dinner, the bar man comes around and tops you up until numerous times. Free self serve ice cream and biscuits and crackers too. There are also two Jacuzzi here you can watch sunset from which we did. Free breakfast includes an egg stand where eggs are freshly cooked for you as per your requirements and an outside stand cooked noodles. We were sad to leave after our two nights and couldn't believe how good value the hotel was. we were also right around the corner from a great street with lots of street food in the evenings. walking distance to all main sights and we used uber/grab when we were tired."

A Palm-Lined Pearl

An island and part of the mainland make up the small Malaysian region of Penang, also known as the ‘pearl of the Orient’. It has long been coveted and the capital Georgetown has many elegant Colonial buildings. The observation deck of the KOMTAR tower – the tallest building – offers spectacular views of the town and surrounding mountains.

A funicular railway goes up to Penang Hill deep in the forest. Nearby Air Itam has one of Asia’s largest Buddhist temples - Kek Lok Si – lit by hundreds of lights at night. Another fantastic temple is Taoist Kong Hock Keong in Georgetown.

Penang Airport is near southern Bayan Lepas, and across the Malacca Strait is Pulau Jerejak, a peaceful island where trees merge into ocean.

In the much livelier north, Batu Feringghi is the largest resort, with lots of Penang hotels on the beach, plenty of bars and a night market. East, green mountains slope down to blue waters at Tanjung Bungah, where several high-rise hotels overlook the palm-lined beach towards the Floating Mosque just offshore.

On the mainland Butterworth is the departure point for ferries to Penang island, and has a bird park housing a large number of Malaysian species. Wherever you decide to stay, Booking.com has a fantastic range of Penang hotels and apartments to choose from.
