Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Federal Penang is located on Penang Road, neighbors with famous Campbell, Chulia and Kimberly street where everything is within mins walking. We have one of the lowest rates around in this part of Georgetown. Truly convenient with free-shuttle and city buses stops right at our doorstep. Chinese, Malay, Indian or even Western restaurants and pubs just around the corner plus 7 Eleven and supermarket. ... more   less
