Flamingo Hotel by the Beach
Tanjung Bungah,Penang - View on map
"I travel to Penang frequently, it can be difficult to find a descent hotel there, they are either extremely expensive or not very nice. Many hotels in Penang are horribly run often with my bare minimum of a clean room not being met, and often the staff can be downright miserable. But the Flamingo is the exception. The have clean, nice rooms and a friendly staff. The pool and pool bar are very relaxing, the bar tender is friendly and makes a great pina colada. The breakfast is the best I have found in Penang even at much pricier resorts. The location is great. Far from the airport but, central to Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi."

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"

The Light Hotel Penang
Seberang Jaya,Penang - View on map
"It was awesome being a guest at The Light Hotel in Penang. It is not on the island itself. But for us this was a bonus because the surrounding was not so crowded. All in all it was a very good experience. Hotel/building, stuff, breakfast, environment were perfect. We really felt comfortable. We totally recommand this hotel."

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."

Cititel Hotel Penang
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"I visted Penang often and have experienced staying at various hotels in Penang. So Far my preference is still Cititel Hotel which is very friendly and efficient. The check-in and checkout were hassle free (cannot recall the front desk staff names)and better still the greetings and smiles made me felt very welcome ... I love the car park located on Level 2 & 3. I can access the Lobby Lift and go straight up to my room (via choice of 4 very fast Lifts). Oh yes the Dragon, constructed using recycled mineral water plastic bottle is still being displayed in the Lobby. Great for photos!"

Shangri-La Rasa Sayang, Penang
Batu Ferringhi,Penang - View on map
"I can say Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort is the most luxury hotel in Penang since we stayed 4 hotels during our trip. The lovely beautifully landscaped gardens and very nice beach just beside of the hotel are the most part what I love. You know the facilities and the service and the breakfast of Shangri-La is no doubt absolutely great. But I found only the ones who have a great time are me and my husband. My 9 years old and 7 years old kids felt boring. Not any fun for kids. Swimming pool is not any for kids (like slides) comparing the Hardrock Hotel which we stayed just before Shangri-La. So I recommand the couple or the family with big children choose this resort. That will the best choice. "

Shangri-La Golden Sands, Penang
Batu Ferringhi,Penang - View on map
"We checked in around 2.30pm but were made to wait until 3.15pm because our room was not ready yet. We then learned that they actually wanted to give us one of the best rooms for the price we paid, hence the wait. Around 5.30pm, there was a knock on the door and they surprised us with an anniversary cake together with a card signed by the staff. We were humbly surprised and happy at the same time. They took our remark during online booking seriously. They had also gave us a complimentary fruit cake for the delay during check in. What more can we say. We had a pleasant stay at one of the best hotels in Penang. Will we come back again? Of course! Truly some of the best hospitalities we've seen so far. Kudos!! Special shoutout to En. Razak at the check in counter. Thanks for everything!"

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.
