One of the best hotels in penang and not dissimilar to Raffles in singapore. Got a suite and the bathroom is stunning. Service is average. The evening canapes in the lounge is too popular, feels like a free for all

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.
