The Banana Boutique Hotel in Georgetown Penang is a recently restored heritage hotel, offering good quality accommodation, right in the heart of Chinatown along Chulia Street.
Close by to the property, you will find all the tourist attractions in George Town within easy walking distance, as well as the popular nightspots along Upper Penang Road where you will find a good choice of bars, nightclubs, hawker food and restaurants.
The hotel offers a range of good sized rooms and also has its own open air restaurant and bar in the front of the hotel.
Free wifi internet is available at this Penang hotel.
Getting around the old part of the city to see all the sights is easy to do by foot, with most places of interest within a 15 - 20 minutes walk away.
For exploring the rest of the island and to get out to the beaches around Batu Ferringhi, there are regular buses that run along Chulia Street (bus 101 is the best) or you can walk up to Penang Road where there are even more buses stopping.
You can even get to and from the Penang airport to the Banana Boutique by bus. See our Penang airport bus page for more details.
