I stayed at E&O from 11-13 October 2017, and I must say the place has already give a strong impression since my first arrival. Not only that the design of the hotel is so elegant and beautiful but The Hotel staff was very attentive and helpful with my luggage and check-in process.
I always greeted by every hotel staff that I met from the corridor of my room to the main door. Every question was answered thoughtfully and as the first timer to Penang, the front office staff were more than helpful with the map and explanation of each destination that I asked (from the coffee shop, nasi kandar place where the locals go or the street arts and must-visit temples, jetty, etc)
Breakfast, lunch and dinner both buffet and a la carte were excellent. I love the variety and quality of the food they have. I stayed in a corner suite with a balcony looking to the sea and you can definitely enjoy sunrise from the balcony. The room is spacious and clean, very well maintained despite E&O is the oldest 5* hotel in Malaysia.
I recommend this hotel for those who are going to Penang and would like to enjoy good service during their stay.
