When it comes to traveling, my family likes to find the best deals that we can while maintaining a nice and comfortable place to stay. For our recent trip to Penang in Malaysia we stayed at a comfortable and conveniently located hotel at an affordable rate, which is WE Hotel. It is an affordable hotel in our price range and was also strategically placed in a convenient location within short distance to great restaurants, activities, and attractions.
Upon entering the hotel, in the lobby, we noticed that there was a great little place that had essential items and snacks and drinks for purchase in case you had forgotten anything or wanted to purchase something for a quick snack.
In the lobby, there was also a nice sitting area with books that you can sit down and read and enjoy yourself while you relax.
We were greeted by the front desk staff in which they were very friendly and accommodating and checking in and out was a breeze.
The room itself was very nice and great for a comfortable stay for our family. We stayed in the family room that sleeps a family of four and it was very nice, clean, and well maintained – fully equipped with two queen size beds and a family bathroom with a toilet and shower.
Room rates were very affordable ranging from around RM100 – RM200 per night dependent on the type of room that you choose and the amount of people staying in your room.
Another great feature to the hotel was the food. They offered a mini buffet that was available during breakfast featuring items like nasi lemak and spaghetti, toast with various spreads.
We grabbed some of the nasi lemak and some malaysian kuih, it was absolutely delicious.
For lunch we visited the We Cafe and they had a few really great options to choose from.
We had the spaghetti bolognese and it again was really delicious.
As we mentioned, the hotel is very conveniently located to a lot of various food and attractions. Some of the most famous restaurants that you can find nearby would be Nasi Kandar Subaidah, Cabai Kering Steamboat & Grill Restaurant and where we had dinner was De Pauh Garden Restaurant, which is a famous restaurant for serving western food in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there and would highly recommend it.
Other convenient attractions include the Sunway Carnival Mall, Penang Harbour, Penang Times Square, the Wonderfood Museum, and my toddler’s personal favorite, the KL Bird Park! Penang is a great place for families to spend a nice trip together and enjoy each other’s company while relaxing.
If you are planning to visit Penang, but looking for a budget hotel to stay the night, I would highly recommend checking out the WE Hotel and booking your stay there.
