My experience of staying at Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang
Eastern & Oriental Hotel is a unique 5-Star luxury hotel on Penang Road capturing the essence of colonial luxury travel. The establishment preserves the old charm of the colonial occupation of Malaysia. Plenty of celebrities, writers and travellers have enjoyed their stay at this amazing establishment.
Penang Road is home to very lively bars, night clubs and cafes. As you enter the lobby, a massive dome offers a unique architectural wonder where even a whisper can be heard as an echo. There is an old wing and a new wing of the hotel offering rooms in various sizes.
