List of Hotels in Penang Malaysia

Hotels by Penang Port

This area is getting a whole new facelift and there are going to be a number of luxury accommodations in this area of town.

Hotels in Chulia Street

This was once the backpacking district of the city, but these days there are plenty of renovated properties that offer some good lodging facilities. If you are looking for inexpensive accommodation, there are still a few here, but you will have a better choice along Love Lane, which is a turning off of Chulia St, or Muntri Street, which is just off of Love Lane.

You may also want to consider the Little India area close by.

Or some of the Heritage accommodation in nearby Armenian Street.

Or in Stewart Lane & Muntri Street.

Hotels Around KOMTAR

This is not my favourite area to stay in as it is a bit too far away from the old part of town and all its sights. However, if you want to be near to the shopping malls, this is a good choice for you. There are plenty of places to eat in this area and you could always jump on the bus to see the sights.
