Top tips for finding the perfect George Town hotel

  • To see some of George Town’s impressive ancient architecture, select a hotel next to Kek Lok Si, a Buddhist temple that dates back to the 19th century and is known for its colourful decorations and representations of Buddha. The Good Luck Inn is a budget-friendly choice that is only a 2-minute drive from the temple and a 10-minute walk from the popular Sister Curry Mee restaurant.
  • If you would like to learn more about the region’s history, choose a hotel near Khoo Kongsi, a historic Chinese temple that contains artefacts related to murals, stone carvings and the Chinese presence in Malaysia. The Armenian Suite hotel is only a 5-minute walk from the museum and an 8-minute walk from the Yap Kongsi Temple.
  • Hoping to do some shopping during your trip to George Town? If so, make sure to book a hotel next to Gurney Plaza, such as the G Hotel Kelawai located a 2-minute walk away. Gurney Plaza is a shopping complex that contains a variety of stores, including Adidas and Levi’s.
  • For visitors who would like to explore the city’s green spaces, pick a hotel near the Penang Botanic Gardens, such as the affordable Hotel Waterfall located a 3-minute drive away. The Penang Botanic Gardens contain a large selection of plants and wildlife, making it a popular place to relax and enjoy nature.
  • If you are an art-enthusiast, book a hotel next to the Glass Museum Penang, such as the Areca Hotel Penang located less than a 3-minute walk away. This museum contains several exhibits featuring artistic glass pieces and offers the choice of purchasing affordable custom-made souvenirs.
