St. Giles Wembley Premier Hotel, Penang

St. Giles Wembley Premier Hotel is one of the new hotel recently opened its door in the heart of Georgetown, Penang.

It occupies a strategic location, just beside the KOMTAR tower and 1st Avenue shopping mall. Definitely an ideal base to explore the city.

The lobby is spacious and comfortable. However, I wish the hotel has more check in counters to speed up the check in process should there be an influx of tourists at one particular time.

The hallway leading to the rooms are equally impressive with its fresh carpet design and well lit area.

I really like the superior room here (rate: RM 265/night) with its batik inspired carpet. All the lighting here are of LED and I can't even spot a compact fluorescent lamp here. It shows the hotel commitment to energy saving.

The room is well designed and I have a comfortable stay here. The curtains are able to block all the sun shine outside effectively and ensure a good continuous sleep in the morning. However, the room is not fully sound proof as I can still hear people slamming the door outside.

Another advantage of staying at this hotel is its view. My room view is not too bad as I can see the Penang Times Square, Sunway Hotel Georgetown, Gama and etc.
