About
Description
The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as 'The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a More testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient.

The coffee machines in the rooms in the new wing are Lavazza. Your Nespresso caps won’t work unless they are compatible with Lavazza machines.

I also paid the deposit by credit card but don't remember what the fee was. I would suggest sending an inquiry from their website or ringing them.

It’s only a 10 minute walk to get to the start of the main areas of interest such as Little India.
