The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as 'The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a …Moretestament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient.

There are 2 wings: the colonial one and the new one. The new one is less expensive, smaller rooms but closer to gym, spa, swimming pool and breakfast room. It depends if you prefer smaller or bigger room. If you don’t hAve budget issues go for deluxe . I would not suggest to stay more then 3/4 days in Georgetown. Best regards
