First of all, let me tell you upfront that I did not stay in this hotel, or dine here. It's more of a trespassing experience. My traveling companion wanted to see Ernest Zacharevic latest street graffiti and it's near E&O Hotel. As it turns out, the graffiti is by the sea and nearest 32 Mansion/Beach Blanket Babylon Bar. However, the front entrance hotel staff is kind enough to let us pass this super-exclusive hotel to get to the other side. As soon as we stepped into the hotel, it took my breath away. The colonial-style exterior is picturesque but the interior is even more mind-blowingly beautiful. We found the picture of three ancient dudes in this hotel's exquisite hallway, which we later found out that they are the hotel's founders. Managed to take a few pictures in the hallway, hehe. As we pass along, we stumbled upon a beautiful ocean view and pier, and managed to take a few pictures of the pier.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place.

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
