Where to stay in Butterworth

With a variety of travelers always coming and going, Butterworth offers accommodations for everyone. Whether you prefer a basic hostel room with a shared bathroom or a luxurious suite, finding a room is easy--but do book ahead of time if you go during the peak season. You can stay on Jalan Kampung Gajah for the easiest access to the ferry terminal, but note that many hotels offer free drop-off and pick-up from the terminal to make travel easy.
