The Hotel Located in the heart of the UNESCO George Town in Penang, I checked in to Hotel Jen Penang by Shangri-La last year during my weekend trip to the island after having spent a night at DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang. As compared to the latter, Hotel Jen Penang is a mere 20 minutes drive from Penang International Airport definitely much more centrally located if most of your agenda is in George Town.
As compared to DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang, the design of the lobby here is much more contemporary and it exudes the chic and fun vibes of the Hotel Jen brand. The lobby area is spacious and there are plenty comfortable sofa seatings around.
The Room I checked into the Deluxe King Room which at 28 sqm, the size is decent given that I did not plan to spend much time in the hotel. I like the fun look of the room which incorporates the local Penang street murals. The rooms had been renovated in recent years and it feels better to step into the room here as compared to DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang.
