"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. "

"I stayed at Berjaya Georgetown hotel and here are my feedbacks: (1) Hotel is opposite the Adventist Hospital so it is very convenient for foreigners, especially Indonesia from Sumatra, seeking treatments at the hospital or relatives visiting the patient there. This is the only reason I see why this hotel can still 'survive' until now. (2) Check-in was smooth and fast. The front-desk was friendly. The lift was working just fine. (3) Although I booked a single room for 1 person, I was very surprise by how small the room was. (4) The room's carpet was not very clean and smell strange. (5) The air-condition keeps making this awful noise that it won't stop, and I was not able to control the temperature in the room as the controller was not working. (6) I was given a high floor as requested, with partial view of the beach front. But on the other side, it was blocked by this condominium next door whereby you can see every actions that is going on on the other side if you don't draw up the curtains, and vice verse. Really lack of privacy. (6) Another horrible noise was the constant slamming of doors in the morning or night when the gusts goes out or comes back. Not recommended for any businessman that needs a good night sleep. (7) The breakfast was the SAME every day. The coffee or tea was only available (from the kitchen) upon request. Overall my stay was rather depressing. Everything is OLD and not lively at all. One would expect Berjaya Group which has the famous Times Square at KL to have some kind of basic standards and reputation to maintain.""

"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. "

"Kimberley Hotel Georgetown is all about the location. Its situated perfectly in the midst of everything. All the attractions are walking distance, be it the beautiful, artsy streets of Georgetown, the Hawker Markets for Street Food at night, or a nearby mall for grocery and some mall time. Also nearby are the Glow in the Dark Museum, and other such activities. Add to that, you get all the conveniences of a hotel, be it having the room made, towels, wi-fi, basic supplies etc. It's perfect if you wanna save on transport costs, and plan to spend most of your time in and around the city hot-spots. The staff were very helpful, and they had useful city maps in the lobby which served us well during our time there. The only compromise is the room size, so be prepared for tiny rooms. You cant add an extra bed, and I found hot water to be warm at best, and not consistent. But overall for the location and the conveniences, it was absolutely worth it. "

"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. "

"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. "

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."

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.
