Hotels In Penang

Before Georgetown in Penang was accorded UNESCO status as World Heritage site, many visitors liked staying at the beach hotels in Batu Ferringhi and Tanjung Bungah.

During pre-Penang Bridge days or before recognition as World Heritage site status, many of us headed for Batu Ferringhi or Tanjung Bungah rather than the newer, hipster or so called boutique hotels in George Town.

Find around 700 hotels in Penang here.

Now with its heritage status, George Town saw many new city hotels being built and attracting even more visitors because of food and heritage shop houses. Hotels flourished at the Gurney Drive area as well. Gurney Drive is essentially a sea facing esplanade. Note that not all seafront hotels aren’t always  touching the sea. Some may require a walk across a road. Check maps. Here is list of Penang Hotels, usefully sorted into their respective category. It is not exhaustive, Please see banner below or search at: for even more options.
