Eastern & Oriental Hotel
10 Lebuh Farquhar
Penang, Malaysia

The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel - known simply as `The E&O' to generations of travellers - has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era.

In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself; its story inextricably woven into the island's history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller's treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient.

Situated in George Town, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, the E&O Hotel stands at the intersection of Farquhar Street and Penang Road. The hotel is 20 kilometres from the Penang International Airport and within walking distance from the food havens, shopping complexes and entertainment outlets of downtown George Town.


The Heritage Wing is the historical heart of the Eastern & Oriental Hotel. Built in 1885, its Moorish minarets and soaring echo-dome lobby provide the backdrop for khaki-clad doormen and pith-helmeted bellhops to welcome guests to its 100 elegant suites.

Indeed, over its century-and-a-quarter history, the E&O's Heritage Wing has played host to some of the world's most celebrated artists, writers and heads of state.

Attended to by the E&O's legendary butler service, each suite offers the perfect invitation to step back into the refined elegance and colonial grandeur of a golden age.


With the opening of the new Victory Annexe in March 2013, an important chapter in the E&O Hotel's history has come full circle. Named after the original Victory Annexe - a magnificent 40-room addition unveiled by Arshak Sarkies in 1923 - the new Victory Annexe features 118 Studio Suites and 4 Corner Suites.

Its modern-classic design retains the essence of E&O's rich heritage yet offers the modern business traveller state-of-the-art conveniences including high-speed wifi broadband connection, a fully-equipped gym, an infinity pool with an extensive view of the Andaman sea and the E&O Gallery
