We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Penaga. The rooms were spacious and decorated with lovely Malay furnishings. The staff we’re excellent and went out of their way to help us. The location in the World Heritage buffer zone was ideal.

An indulgent two day stay
Hotel Penaga was the 3rd hotel I stayed in in Georgetown. All the staff were great - very helpful and friendly. I had a very comfortable suite with a big bathroom and a little sitting area where the TV was. Bed and pillows terrific, bathroom good except there didn't appear to be too much hot water in the shower. Had a spa bath and hot water then wasn't a problem. One other complaint were the 40 steps up to my suite. If this is a problem, remember to ask for a room on a lower level. Also the hotel appears to be divided into 3 blocks with two of the blocks accessed from outside the main section of the hotel. This would only be a problem if it was raining. Breakfast was fine although the choice of Asian style dishes was a little limited. One could choose between four different types of cooked eggs. Good croissants and the coffee was drinkable. The bar area very small and not that inviting to sit and have a drink. I had mine outside beside the pool. Free massage is only 10 minutes and I didn't use the wellness centre. Free mini bar is only soft drinks and some juice. There is a mini mart just across the road.

Great Penang base
Fantastic base for exploring the wonderful city of Penang. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel is a beautiful boutique style hotel. The bar is limited but this was my only complaint. Was great to have a pool to escape to and massage at the spa was lovely. Would definitely come back!!

Excellent hotel in great location.
A great Peranakan style hotel offering comfort, excellent service and close to sights and food markets. The only negative was the faulty air-conditioning which took us a while to discover. It was fixed after several goes. Highly recommended.
