We have booked 3 day 2 nights stay at E&O Hotel for a short break in Penang.
The location at Georgetown was convenient to visit the "Blue Mansion" or Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and the Penang State Museum & Gallery and also the heritage walk if you can bear with the heat.
The room is spacious and the bedding are comfortable as many pillows are provided. Wi-fi is complimentary throughout the hotel, hence, it is an added plus. The staff who check-in for us was very helpful and friendly.
My kids and I loved the breakfast spread at E&O hotel. It has western, local (Nasi Lemak), Chinese ( Dim Sum for breakfast on sunday) and even fresh fruit juice. You can sit on the inside or outside, which you can have a nice view of the sea.
There is also a shuttle bus that brings hotel guest to Lone Pine Hotel, located at Batu Ferringgi and Quay Side, a shopping complex. That would save you taxi fare as most taxi fare in Penang are not run on meter, but charge based on a fixed rate.
If I ever visit Penang again, I will definitely choose E&O Hotel as my first choice.
