The George opens in Penang, Malaysia

Visitors to George Town on the Malaysian island of Penang have a new accommodation choice that absorbs the cultural riches of this UNESCO-listed destination.

The appropriately named ‘The George’ is situated at the convergence of the capital city’s four main historical streets. In the past, it has been a Chinese dispensary and a sundry shop. It has now taken on a new lease of life as a luxury hotel and is perfectly positioned in a heritage enclave to offer easy access to UN-acclaimed architecture and cultural sites, including Chinese shop houses, British-era colonial buildings, ornate Indian temples and imposing Islamic mosques.

The six floors of The George contain 92 rooms and suites furnished in a classical style, plus facilities such as a steam bath, gym and saltwater swimming pool.
