Living in a colonial-styled hotel – Eastern & Oriental Hotel

Coming to Penang? Why not stay in a hotel where famous people stayed before?! This colonial-styled hotel dated way back in 1884! The Sarkies Brothers founded Eastern Hotel followed by Oriental Hotel which led to a merger in 1885.

This hotel hosted famous people such as Charlie Chapin, Lee Kuan Yew, Hassanal Bolkiah (Sultan of Brunei), etc…

This is a suite in the Heritage wing with a living room area where sitting and chilling is so comfortable here!

What makes it relaxing is the view of the open waters from the bedroom window.

There’s a swimming pool in the Victory Annexe with a nice clear view.
