Eastin Hotel Penang


1, Solok Bayan Indah, Queensbay, 11900 Bayan Lepas, Penang


Located very near the Penang International Airport, the hotel provides everything you need aside from the accommodation. Apart from being in close proximity from the Airport, the hotel brings in a wide range of variety of food choices all around.

A great view can be seen from the hotel room window


The hotel can be accessed by public transportation from the Airport (Grab or Taxi are all over the exit area) as well as from those coming from the main island of Northern Malaysia. You can also book transfers to and from your preferred destination via their Hotel transport service with an additional fee. You may book this ahead prior to arriving at the Penang island to avoid hassle.

Within the hotel premises is the Queensbay Mall in Penang, which is just less than 5 minutes walk. Aside from a wide range of shopping options, the mall also houses great options to dine in as well. The mall houses Uncle Kin Chili Pan Mee, a hawker stall regarded as one of the best in the mall. Aside from the mall, nearby establishments, whether local or international food options would make you feel at ease without worrying about running out of dining options.



The hotel has an in-house lounge where you can hold informal meetings and accept guests without them visiting your room. It offers buffet breakfast option as well as the usual round the clock concierge. It has a small gym but good enough for breaking a sweat and a swimming pool as well.

The room is spacious enough for a good night sleep. Opting for a queen size or a double bed is a choice, but whatever it will be – the comfort of sleep is almost always guaranteed.

The toilet and bath room has a complete toiletries kit, a high pressure shower and a spacious toilet area (no bidet though).

Other amenities within the room includes complimentary water, tea, and coffee (all refillable every day of stay), free slippers, ironing kit, and a spacious desk for your office work.



Eastin hotel brings in a dynamic feel because of what it surrounds them on where they are located. The service they provide is exceptional and the over-all stay in the room is quite superb and comfortable.

We cannot say anything more about this Hotel as it brings about what it is expected – a sophisticated and comforting stay. We totally agree with this Tripadvisor hotel review, it was indeed a great experience.
