PENANG HOTEL REVIEW ON EASTERN & ORIENTAL HOTEL, GEORGETOWN

eastern and oriental hotel in georgetown,penang The Eastern & Oriental Hotel, usually referred to as E&O Hotel, is an exclusive 100 all-suite hotel of old, colonial charm with finest traditions of comfort and services. The property initially started as The Eastern in 1884. The Oriental was later added in 1885 due to Eastern's overwhelming popularity at that time. The two hotels then combined together as the grand Eastern & Oriental Hotel with Moorish minarets, a spacious domed lobby and a sweeping seafront.
E&O, more than a century since its establishment had gone through major refurbishment with modern day amenities to meet the demands of discerning travellers and reclaimed its heritage as a haven to be sought again and again.

 

Located along Farquhar Street (Lebuh Farquhar) about 20 km from Penang Airport, and 2 km from Penang Ferry terminal and Tanjung City Marina waterfront in Weld Quay (Pengkalan Weld).  It is also situated in the heart of Penang, and within walking distance from an amazing heritage of art and architecture, festivals and food, a myriad of shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs.

Penang Travel Tips:

E&O is very near Georgetown Heritage Site, so your  Walking Trail can conveniently start from here. Visit Little Penang Street Market which is open on the last Sunday of every month. Enquire for bicycle rentals at the hotel if you are a cycling enthusiast. There are sea tour services at Tanjung City Marina in Weld Quay.  Recommended place for upscale shopping is at Gurney Plaza.

Can consider driving to Air Itam, then up the hillside road to Balik Pulau, leading to Teluk Bahang and Batu Ferringhi beach in the  Northern shoreline. The road from Balik Pulau to Teluk Bahang is winding and scenic, with surrounding tropical plants throughout the path, passing through Tropical Fruit Farm, Teluk Bahang Forest Eco Park and Butterfly Farm before arriving at Penang National Park and Batu Ferringhi beach.
