Sharon asks…

Places to stay between this hotels in Penang?

Which one of this is a great hotel to stay in Penang and why?

1.Bayview Beach Hotel
2.Holiday Inn
3.Grand Plaza Parkroyal
4.Copthorne Orchid Hotel

Penang Local Boy answers:

Based on my personal experience, i would definitely recommend grand plaza parkroyal which is located in Batu Feringghi, where its beach is lovely but mind you, you cant swim in there coz there are lots of jellyfishes!! Refrain yourself from swimming in the sea!!

Back to the hotel, i actually love the garden surrounding, the superb swimming pools, facilities are is heaven, room interior is lovely but mind you its kinda small for a room they claimed as Grand Deluxe room..always choose room which offering the sea view with balcony..never ever choose those on garden or hillviews coz you will end up seeing a stretch of roads, which i think it quite noisy!!..also choose room on the 5th floor onwards coz the liveband in the lounge is kinda loud around midnite… The room rates start at MYR450.00++ and above..pretty expensive..but the rooms have recently had a new facelift and lots of room amenities added inside and so i would say, its not too bad..

Foodwise, never dine in their restaurant except when you have those free breakfast added to your room….not because the food is lousy but the prices are way too expensive!!!.. A pint of beer will coz you USD30.00!! Its the better to walk out from the hotel coz there are many bistros, cafes serving good quality local and international food and drinks..

Anyway, i would say among all the hotels you listed up there, i prefer to stay in this chic hotel despite all those minor glitz!!

Happy travelling!

Well yeah, b suite is not bad but vistana is more convenient coz there are stalls around and you can get mcd, kfc and other foodstall at walking distance (bukit jambul complex) also cineplex (walking distance.
And much cheaper compared to b suite.

U can take rapid penang( public transportation) straight to queensbay from there.
