Stayed 2 nights over the weekend in Hotel Penaga. The hotel looks like an old shophouse from the outside but rooms are nicely furbished with modern facilities like jet sprays, rain-tree showers and Jacuzzi. Hotel is located at the heart of the city with plenty of amenities nearby. Only thing to note is the paper thin walls and ceilings - i can hear pounding going on upstairs at 3am... would be good if they can soundproof the walls.
Breakfast is disappointing, just go out of the hotel and you will be spoiled for choices with great food.
Overall this is one of the better hotels in Georgetown and recommended to all.
PS. the pool looks nothing like the photos.
