Straits Quay, Penang Island

2.9
#6 of 33 in Shopping in Penang Island
Marina Shopping Mall
Set against the reflection of the harbor lights on the water, Straits Quay represents a collection of shops with a maritime setting. Browse through the clothing stores, sip a coffee at a cafe, or go on a hunt for souvenirs at one of the gift shops that line the marina. In the early evening the mall is quiet, and the breeze through the open-air kiosks welcomes walkers. At night the mall becomes abuzz with energy as the restaurants and bars fill up with people wanting to experience the nightlife. Stop at the supermarket for some fresh sushi, and then find a bench from which to admire the yachts in the harbor. Before you head to George Town, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly George Town holiday planner, to make sure you see all that George Town has to offer, including Straits Quay.

  • I loved it here. The pool is nice. Facilities is five stars. Sam groceria is just downstairs making it so much easier for grocery shopping as we have one toddler with us. Will definitely come back.
  • Dirty Dirty Room! Other guests hairs in the bed. Only one bed sheet covering the mattress and a duvet. No lobby but hard to get a hold of the key as nobody knows what's going on while wondering through the mall with luggage trying to find answers. Will NEVER be back!
  • Very nice place. Nice ocean view, gym, pool, near coffee shop, grocery store. I would stay here if I visit Penang again.
  • Disgusting dirty room. MALE BODLY FLUIDS on the headrest!! Hair in the fridge, in the bed sheet and around the room galore complimentary from other guests. Only one sheet covering mattress. Windows, mirrors, walls dirty, fridge kitchen are very dirty. Furniture disintegrating literally! Had to wash the sheets to be able to use and wipe furniture myself (all other hotels full!). Wasted lots of time in Penang! When arrived as there is no lobby it was difficult to find the key while searching for it in a mall carrying luggage. Good thing I bought a sim card at the airport. Complained but no reply! Will NEVER be Back! I'd give zero stars if I could! The suites are falsely advertised as 4 star.
  • Sit back and relax at the balcony!!

Where to stay in George Town

As an established tourist destination, George Town offers a range of options making use of the city's famous architectural diversity, with boutique hotels in the old town themed around the history of the building they occupy. For such singular accommodations, expect to pay a little more. Budget hotels and unbranded local options provide a comfortable night sleep at an affordable rate. The coastal areas offer more expensive resort-style luxury rooms with sea views, while away from the beaten track, you'll find backpacker hostels providing good options for those wanting to keep on the move.
