My family and I took up 3 rooms at the Victory Annexe from June 20-23 and experienced one of the best stays we ever had in Penang. The rooms are have an exquisite view of the sea, especially if the curtains are opened all the way. The balcony is cosy and private, a nice place for a good read with a cup of tea. Soft drinks are complimentary and there is even a Lavazza coffeemaker with capsules provided. The luxurious bathrooms boasts a roomy shower stall with a rainshower plus a standalone old-world bathtub. Two separate sinks and two wardrobe areas, one thougthfully catering to the lady and the other, for the gentleman. The bathroom size alone is the area of two HK hotel rooms! Breakfast spread is extensive and delicious, there is even a Penang Char Kway teow station. The only problem we had is that one of the room's keycards kept glitching and could not be used to open the doors.
Tip: For excellent sup kambing, walk out of the hotel towards Penang Road until you reach the stalls opposite Hotel Malaysia. Good mamak food too!
