TravelPod Member ReviewsGrand Continental Hotel - Penang Georgetown
We moved to this hotel from the Hong Ping and what sold it was the amazing view from the room on the 16th floor. The hotel was nice and of a similar standard to a 3 star hotel at home (UK) The service however was bad, staff were very ignorant and in no way wanted to help with anything! Also the rooms have WIFI at a shocking charge of 15RM per 24 hours (about £3) It's free in the lobby, although logs you out about every 5 mins...PAIN!

... food. We have both spent a wonderful evening making different foods on these fantastic little street stalls that have been set up for people to have a go at making traditional food. One of the reasons is to encourage the younger generation to keep up with the old traditions, not just of food, but traditional crafts also. One lady we spoke with said that often now they leave to go abroad for further education, and when they return they have a different palate and ...
... We had lunch at a very British restaurant called David Brown where we just had to have Fish and Chips, their signature meal.
