We had a wonderful stay at this old colonial hotel whilst in Georgetown. The decor, service and restaurants were everything I would've imagined from the era. There is something quite decadent about a pianist playing in the foyer each afternoon. The hotel was within walking...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.
