My husband and I stayed a week here and couldn't have picked a better hotel. After touring the island and comparing Georgetown to Batu Ferringhi, we knew we had chosen the right place (unless you're a beach person). Eastern & Oriental is conveniently located in Georgetown within walking distance to Little India, Red Garden Hawker Center, China Town, Clan Jetties and on and on. The staff at E&O were very friendly and professional. We stayed in the Victory Annex with a BEAUTIFUL view of the strait and the relaxing sound of the water. No traffic noise at all on this side of the building. The room was large, clean and offered not only hotel robes but also beautiful sarongs to wear. The breakfast area on the 6th floor faced the water with a nice selection for breakfast. The daily free cocktail hr from 5-7pm was great with delicious hors d'oevres, wine, and some hard liquor. This all faced the water and there was also a relaxing area to eat/drink by the beautiful infinity pool. Our hotel was an oasis in the city and we looked forward to coming back after a hot day of sight seeing. LOVED this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as 'The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient. ... more less
