Anyone have any recommended hotels to stay around Georgetown for around 2-3 nights?

I came across Hotel Jen which is beside Komtar, location wise looks centralised. Any other recommendations?

The Hotel Jen is a good choice in terms of location. Perhaps Cititel, slightly further from Komtar.

Is evergreen located near the busy touristy Georgetown areas?

By the way, for a first timer with kid, how many nights are recommended?
4D3N?

May i know Cititel surroundings suitable for family and food?
Yes it is. Got mamak makan shop just opposite the hotel. And night mamak shop on the left selling soup kambing
etc

Got those kinda 7 11 shops near the hotel too


From hotel, walk straight down all the way mydin, jual murah market, komtar, prangin mall etc. Now got grab, so just take it, super cheap.

One or two streets down from hotel is the dobi. Good place to put your clothes for washing.

My personal favourite hotel in Penang. Been going there since the mid 90s
Just dont take their in house breakfast. For me I found it super oily and same menu .

Be sure to choose cititel. Not cititel express

The Evergreen is located near the edge within Georgetown, away from the busiest areas. 4D3N will do just fine for a family with a child, in my opinion.

My first visit I stay in Sunway, location very good but a bit old.
2nd time stay in a better hotel DoubleTree Resort by Hilton but nearby nothing just comfortable.
