    Thanks bro. The price is very reasonable. Will not be driving so is it convenient to get around if I were to stay there? Is it near the sea and city center where we can get cheap food and shopping?

    I was there last Jun and Initially I was looking for lodging near Ferringi Beach....but the prices were too high due to holiday season....so I settled for Berjaya Hotel which located in City area instead(I paid around RM125/nite), it is acceptable if you are not fussy, it's quite strategicly located, just about 5 minutes walk to Gurney plaza...there you can get good shopping, GV theather and nice foodcourt....other than that, you can always hop on to a cab or local operated bus(RM1) per trip to downtown area for food and more shopping...it's about 10~15 minutes ride

    Personally, It all depend on your budget. The most value for money would be Cititel. That you have book online. Price can be as low as Myr$105. It is in Georgetown. Alot of opportunities for photos
    Great place to find food too....famous lobak, teochew chendol and nightlife lor.

    Here is the link: http://www.cititelpenang.com/

    If you want somewhere by the beach and cosy. Located in Batu Ferringhi. Abt Myr$200++, inclusive of breakfast.
    Try Lonepine: http://www.lonepinehotel.com/home.htm

    Have a great time in Penang Might be there this coming weekend.
