new year In Penang

Hello lovely Trip advisors

we will be in George Town from 29th Dec - 2 Jan we are looking for a hotel close to where the new year celebrations will be happening.

We would like a nice pool at the hotel so we can relax in the sun.

Our budget is about £80 per night so the E&O is way out of our price range

I was considering Bayview or Hotel Jen but I know these are very big hotels with very mixed reviews.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Thank you

Thanks for your kind reply, i have grab app, but i'm just afraid there won't be any grab to catch at midnight, by walking we need maybe an hour to reach our hotel. If theres grab at midnight i don't mind paying a bit more rather than walking.

I’ve caught Grab taxis very late at night - there should be quite a lot around. You can also try Uber or just flag down one of the red and white taxis if you see one.
