"Almost the best hotel in Penang! We stayed at the Merchant hotel for a total of three weeks. First one week and then I extended for an additional two weeks. The front desk staff is excellent; the room was a 10+ rating. A perfect room with a good bed, full closet, fridge, safe deposit box, good TV, good size desk and chair with multiple electric plugs. An extra (soft) chair in the room and a good bed with four pillows. Bathroom with a full tub and excellent shower with good water pressure. Hot water in both the shower and sink. Fully stocked with all amenities. The in-house breakfast has a good selection, but the eggs, sausage and potatoes are always lukewarm at best. I hate cold foods for breakfast! The Wi-Fi is intermittent at best. I see no repeaters or Wi-Fi extenders in the hallways. Usually I get about 10 minutes from time to time then it disconnects. It seems that it usually disconnects right in the middle of me doing something important. I then go down the road to an internet café to send my important emails. We come to Penang every year (for 10 years now) and stay in hotels from 3 weeks to as much as 3 months. This was the first time at the Merchant Hotel. Even though the room is a five star room and the staff is great, I will never return because of the intermittent Wi-Fi. "

"I was so pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Hotel- I often travel to Penang and have stayed in quite a variety of places- I would say this is one of the best and for a good price. Easy to reach by bus. Pool usually good- fitness center was closed for repair. Most of the staff were extremely helpful. I'd recommend it and come again!"

"The location was great, as very near to Penang bridge and also route back to KL. When we first arrived, the staff there assigned a room which the hair dryer is not function even after technician fix it still not function. Then they assist us in changing another room. So happy that they can do such favor to us. Too bad our stay were short, so unable to try out their gym and sauna facilities. One bad thing is that the food served during breakfast, the bread was moldy. I have no idea how long the bread was put or serve over there :/ But overall is good."

"This new hotel in Chulia street offers a great location in the heart of the historical centre of George Town Penang. The room standard is very good. Clean comfortable and nice bed. I tried several hotels in Penang and this one is way better then any of the other ones I tried. The best price quality option in Penang for sure! Great is also that you get 2 free drinks at the roof terrace bar each evening! The owner and the staff their philosophy is to make the clients feel at home and the nice atmosphere at the bar really helps accomplishing that idea. I can highly recommend this hotel and will be back for sure!"

"I paid RM157 for two nights. Booked via Agoda. Got a queen bed, Nice and clean toilet with water heater shower, Got a pool for adults and kids, Near 7eleven and restaurants. One thing I didn’t like was that my room smelled tobacco. Like previous occupants smoked in the room. I later complained and the staff came and spray. After a day, the smell was just gone. I’ll definitely book again on my next trip. "

"This hotel/resort is the best value for money hotel in Penang. We paid half the price of hotels in Batu Ferringhi but certainly received far far better than half the value. The hotel is brilliantly located at Tanjung Bungha, halfway between Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi with the regular air conditioned rapid bus service travelling in both directions. [Georgetown RM2 & Batu Ferringhi RM1.40]. The suite we had was fantastic with views over both the bay and the hills.The pool area is terrific and the beach is good with all water sports at your disposal.We have now stayed at this hotel twice [having previously stayed at Batu Ferringhi 3 times] and we will be returning to Paradise Sandy Bay Beach Resort for our third stay in October."

More about Penang

From its humble beginnings as a trading port, the city of Penang has evolved over the last two centuries into a tourist destination prized for its beaches, historic architecture, affordable accommodation and amazing food. Accommodation spans quaint hotels and inns in historic neighborhoods and luxury beach resorts. The latter are more popular, as most tourists prefer to venture into the colonial enclaves by day, returning to the beaches and resort restaurants and clubs before nightfall.

Penang's capital city, Georgetown, was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status for its fantastic historic neighborhoods. Highlights include Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and its boutique accommodation, Fort Cornwallis, and the Old City Hall. The hotels in Georgetown are well located for visiting temples and museums.

The newest and most extensive beach resorts are at Batu Ferringhi. It sits on the northern rim of the island and features an enviable spread of seafood restaurants and boutiques along the beach. So many Penang hotels are found here that competition drives down prices, especially in the off-season.

Penang International Airport is one of the best in Malaysia, and it operates flights to major cities across Southeast Asia and the South Pacific. Peak season begins right before Christmas and continues through Chinese New Year, which usually falls in late January or early February. Hotels in Penang charge the highest rates at this time, with the best deals are offered to early bookers.
