Eastern And Oriental Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Spacious rooms, oversized bathrooms, great food options and the most attentive staff ever. Loved everything.

We like this hotel very much. Nice area face with the beach.

Good place to stay to check out Penang and old George Town

Can't beat the value for this stay! A big suite with a balcony overlooking the sea. All inclusive breakfast and cocktail hour! Friendly and attentive staff!

Awesome. Love the breakfast . Would come back again

One of the finest hotels I`ve ever enjoyed. visiting. A perfect blend of the historic, nostalgiac and modern. The rooms/suites are mammoth and homey. The breakfast buffet is jaw-dropping, The people/staff are exemplorary. I could go on and on about this Grande Dame of hotels.

The hotel itself is fairly okay but it is surrounded by a "UNESCO" heritage site which is basically a disgusting run down ghetto dump. The hotel has a beautiful sea front but there is no beach here for swimming. Behind the hotel is a string of closed buildings and out if business strip joints. The Victory Annex is nicer being recently renovated but the gym facilities leave more to be desired - no sauna or shower facilities l available. The gym at the Heritage Wing is a hang out spot for staff who sit around watching you exercise and playing their iPhones.

The E&O was just beautiful!! Great location, right in the middle of Penang and on the harbor. Rooms looked like old fashioned colonial but were completely up to date with good wireless access and a butler who answers your call within minutes. The view from the balcony came straight out of a romance novel, the rooms were comfortable and well furnished, the food was wonderful, and the staff was outstanding. It could not have been better.

Staff were amazingly attentive and anticipated all my needs. At breakfast a white t-shirt was accidently splashed with some chicken curry gravy. The staff had my t-shirt cleaned (impeccably)and got it back to me in under 2 hours

Be prepared to step in the past when you walk into the E&O Hotel. The hotel is meticulously maintained in historic splendor. Furthermore the service is second to none and is truly memorable.
