Booked Hotel Penaga after reading TA reviews, and as usual was not disappointed. Spacious room, excellent air con and in-room wifi with spa bath. In an excellent location - easy walking distance to anywhere in old Georgetown - and although the traffic was sometimes manic, our room was really quiet (and we were directly facing the bike repair shop which...

The hotel is great, very nice style and great design. We stay at Penaga Suite and it was beautiful: two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with jacuzzi) and tv/reading room. We arrived at Hari Raya in the evening and our welcome was fantastic. The kids loved the pool and the environment at the hotel is nice and relaxed. Breakfast is nice,... More

Old style and "robust" hotel located Old Town in George Town. The area was very noisy because renovation at this area. Rooms are ok but not luxury. The dining room and food: excellent! The location of this hotel is good when you wat to see Street Art nearby. Just normal cosy hotel but not luxury.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown - we had a Hutton room which was beautifully appointed and very large and comfortable - and had a jacuzzi bath! Didn't try the restaurant as there is so much to eat nearby - suggest the Indian place across the road... More

This is a nice little Oasis in a very crowded part of Georgetown. Very centrally located and by walking, taxi or bus nothing in town was more then 15 minutes away. Probably the best hotel staff my wife and I have ever encountered.
