The Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang is a 4 star ocean front hotel in Tanjung Bungah Beach on the Northern coastline of Penang Island.
Although Tanjung Bungah does not offer the best beach on the island, it is the closest beach to George Town and all of it's colonial charm and tourist sights.
So, staying here, you get the best of both worlds.
The beach and cool sea breezes, while the city attractions can easily be reached by a fairly short bus, or taxi ride.
The hotel offers 318 guest rooms, all of which have their own private balcony where you can enjoy fine views out over the coastline and sea.
Rooms on offer come in either Standard, Superior and Deluxe, or you can choose from a range of spacious and luxurious suites.
All accommodation has individual air-conditioning, free WIFI, a TV with satellite channels, small fridge, free tea and coffee making facilities and comes with either twin or a King sized bed.

Right in front of the hotel you will find the Penang Toy Museum.
For getting into town to see the sights, bus 101 runs from early morning to late at night, departing every 10 minutes or so during the peak hours. It should take less than 30 minutes to get to the old part of the city, depending on traffic!
