"Fantastic apartment close to all amenities"
This is a really well kitted out apartment with fantastic views. We could not fault the accommodation in any way. Sew Eng and Martin were brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble. Martin directed us to a hawker food eatery, which we tried on numerous occasions. Everything we ate was delicious and incredibly cheap. We treated ourselves to afternoon tea at the E&O Hotel, which was truly an experience to remember. We also had dinner in Bali Hai seafood restaurant on Gurney Drive. Here you choose your own fish from one of the many tanks. A bit expensive by Penang standards, but well worth the extra cost!
We could walk to anywhere in Georgetown from the apartment, so we only used a taxi on a couple of occasions, but these were really cheap. The red taxis won't use the meter, so be sure to agree your fare beforehand. We preferred the blue executive taxis.
