    Great for short stay
    Room is spacious and very clean. Powerful hot shower and comfortable bed. However, soundproofing of the rooms are really bad as we can hear people walking along the corridor, opening and closing room doors etc.

    enjoyed the room with a view
    the receptionist at the check in counter isn't knowledgeable about the hotel and couldn't attend to my request as a Gold Member of the person next to her have to step in to answer my questions. even the cashier at the planter's lounge isn't well taught on the discounts for in-house guests and for guests to pay on the spot, and not to add the bill to the room rate. this setback aside, i enjoyed my room as they have decorated it beautifully for our celebration request. a plus for the toilet as i personally love a spacious toilet. just our luck that our neighbour was quite noisy as they keep opening and closing the doors loudly. i can also hear the upstairs guests walking around and moving the chair. to uplive their reputation as a 5-star hotel, i expected sound proof rooms and not this disturbing and restless stay. at night, there is a bell ringing softly, which i do not know where it come from. i went out to the balcony but the sound is even softer. there is a various selection for the breakfast buffet but the quality is not as good as i thought. some local delicacies are below average taste. however, i like the ala carte dinner at planter's lounge. the food is exceptional

    Exceptional 10,0
    The E & O Hotel is amazing, from the minute you walk in the door the staff are attentive, friendly and helpful. Every area of the hotel is spotlessly clean and the sea view rooms are fantastic.The buffet breakfast is absolutely the best anyone could experience with a huge variety on offer. Treat yourself to the No1 hotel in Penang you will not be disappointed.
