Georgetown Hotels

Many Penang historical places of interest and many popular street arts mural are within walking distance from the hotels

Georgetown Hotels can be found in the heart of the city of Penang capital. Not along Batu Ferringhi, Gurney Drive or Southern Eastern part that is Bayan Lepas.

Penang hotels are by far one of the top choices in terms of Malaysia's Island and its beauty.

So you can just immediately explore our fascinating, quaint Chinatown, Little India or go visit all the heritage buildings with Neo Classical, Anglo, Victorian or Strait Settlement architecture.

Georgetown hotels sits right in the middle of action. Food is in abundance! What food do you want to eat? As a local, I honestly have problems choosing what to eat. So just follow the crowd or your fancy.

These are the real people who have the opportunity to choose the food they want to eat.
