Stay at Budget Hotel Grand Inn Hotel George Town Penang – I have been to Penang several times, and still never get bored. This state, especially its capital, George Town always take a place in my heart. Old buildings are well maintained, the roads are clean and good food is everywhere. I can call this is a charming old town.
There are a lot of places and tourism spots you should visit. If you are an architecture lover, I believe you will get excited to explore George Town. I suggest you to spend several days in George Town so you can enjoy the city without rushing. Although the buildings are dominated by Chinese and colonial style architectural, you will also find some modern shopping complex, cafe, restaurants and hotels.
Surely, there are plenty of accommodation you could choose during your stay in George Town, Penang, Malaysia. Depends on your budget, you could stay at dorm, guest house, budget hotel, star hotel or at a resort.
On my last trip, I decided to stay at budget hotel Grand Inn Hotel George Town Penang. This is an old hotel in George Town but the location is very strategic. Seems like everything was only walking distance from Grand Inn Penang. In case you wanted to take bus to go around, the bus stop is only at across the street.
As a budget hotel, I found this hotel was simple but clean. The lobby was small and a bit plain. You only could find sofa and table also elevator which will take the guests to the floors they stayed.
Unfortunately, when I got into the room, I smelled something moldy. It was like the room was not been occupied for several period. But after I turned on the air conditioning for sometimes, the odor was gone. The bed was clean and comfort.
The staffs were very nice and helpful. You can easily get the city map and other information tourists need to explore the city. Free WiFi in a good and stable speed was available in all areas. The hotel provided free drinking water in the hallway so all guests could refill their bottle. Considering the room rate and despite the bad smell, I should give this hotel good rating.
You could have hot and cold shower at each rooms. Standard toiletries such as soap, shampoo and towels were available too. Several convenience stores were only walking distance. If you wanted to have Subway sandwich or the famous Nasi Kandar, the outlets were only across the street.
I personally do not mind to return to Grand Inn Hotel at Penang Road, George Town, Penang, Malaysia again someday on my next trip to Penang. Very strategic location to explore Penang!! Even the famous Blue Mansion, Cheong Fatt Tze is only 5 minutes walk.
