We recently spent 5 nights in the victory annexe. Our room was a standard suite vs a corner suite. It was modern (great bathroom), very comfortable, except perhaps for the overly hard bed. Perhaps the best perk that is open only to annexe residents is...More

I think no guest can be less than greatly impressed with this hotel. It's proof that great quality and heritage can prevail over time. If there's a minor disappointment, it is the breakfast at Sarkies. (A very big spread but so-so food offerings. U can...More

About
Description
The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as 'The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a More testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient.
