Sheraton Penang, Malaysia

So for two nights I stayed in the supposedly 5 star Sheraton in Penang. It wasn’t that nice. The room was OK, but in an fancy hotel you don’t expect to see stains on the carpet. The breakfeast buffet was OK, but had fewer choices than any other breakfast buffet I’ve been to. The location was pretty inconvenient – despite being in downtown Georgetown, the hotel is pretty removed from the historic parts of the city.

The verdict: stay somewhere else. Look at the map of Georgetown, Penang and find a hotel near Fort Cornwallis or in Chinatown or maybe Little India. Really anywhere around there should be good (not that all hotels in that area are good, but location-wise, that’s where you want to be).
