George town or Batu Ferrenghi are the best areas.

We stayed at the Golden Sands at BF, we got a sea view room. We made frequent visits to Gerogetown via the hotel shuttle bus so we can visit shopping malls etc.

We did a tour of the island including visiting Butterfly farm, Penang Hill etc.

So you should be kept busy for your five days.
