Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang

20151207 EO1

Edwin and I stayed here for half of our Penang trip in December (for the other half we stayed at my grandmother’s place), since we hadn’t had a holiday together for more than a year, and we really needed some couple time in the midst of our break from work.

Our suite at the Victory Annexe came with a balcony and a partial sea view! Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the view – oops!

There were two sinks in the room, which made everything really convenient. They even provided face and hand towels, which was a nice touch.

Swanky bathroom, and a gloriously deep bathtub perfect for soaking in.

We ordered room service for our first dinner in Penang (I wasn’t feeling too well so we didn’t want to go out). The spaghetti aglio olio and chicken schnitzel were pretty good!

For breakfast, we had a choice between dining in the main building or the lounge at the Victory Annexe. The restaurant in the main building, which was a short walk way, offered more choices for their breakfast buffet.

The nasi lemak was sedap (delicious), but the other items were mediocre at best. The lounge at the Victory Annexe fared better, and I preferred the ambiance there as well.

The main building also featured another restaurant/lounge where we had the best afternoon tea ever. More on that next time!

Another perk exclusive to guests at the Victory Annexe was Happy Hour at the lounge. Free flow drinks (including alcoholic ones!) and refreshments!

We stayed for three nights, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was excellent, and the hotel was conveniently located near several shopping malls. Though to be fair, Penang Island is rather small, and it doesn’t take long to get from one end to the other! Still, I wouldn’t mind staying here again the next time we’re in Penang!
