Tien Hotel.Residence 4 stars

Hotel in George Town

Strategically located in the vicinity of George Town's tourist attractions, Tien Hotel.Residence features a rooftop swimming pool and elegantly designed guest rooms. The space is beautiful and thoughtfully furnished with high end fixtures/amenities. I really appreciate the small touches and attention to detail by the owner and staff. I am in the same industry so I always look out for such things because it really makes my day. The staff surprised my husband with a bottle of wine for our second anniversary when all I asked was for them to leave a little note in our room. We enjoyed the wine in the rooftop lounge and had a nice chat with the staff. We highly recommend this place and we will be back to try their new wing when it is ready next year :)

FAQs about hotels in Penang

A Palm-Lined Pearl

An island and part of the mainland make up the small Malaysian region of Penang, also known as the ‘pearl of the Orient’. It has long been coveted and the capital Georgetown has many elegant Colonial buildings. The observation deck of the KOMTAR tower – the tallest building – offers spectacular views of the town and surrounding mountains.

A funicular railway goes up to Penang Hill deep in the forest. Nearby Air Itam has one of Asia’s largest Buddhist temples - Kek Lok Si – lit by hundreds of lights at night. Another fantastic temple is Taoist Kong Hock Keong in Georgetown.

Penang Airport is near southern Bayan Lepas, and across the Malacca Strait is Pulau Jerejak, a peaceful island where trees merge into ocean.

In the much livelier north, Batu Feringghi is the largest resort, with lots of Penang hotels on the beach, plenty of bars and a night market. East, green mountains slope down to blue waters at Tanjung Bungah, where several high-rise hotels overlook the palm-lined beach towards the Floating Mosque just offshore.

On the mainland Butterworth is the departure point for ferries to Penang island, and has a bird park housing a large number of Malaysian species. Wherever you decide to stay, Booking.com has a fantastic range of Penang hotels and apartments to choose from.
