Review: Le Embassy Hotel, Georgetown Penang | Where to stay in Penang?

Penang..... my last visited Penang was on 2018. Phewww, it has been a while. Actually my first plan was to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Penang. Unfortunately, I can't arrived in Kuala Lumpur on time to catch my flight, so I was decided to stay in Pahang for a while, and back to Kuala Lumpur then catch an express bus to Penang. 

In Penang, I had stay at Le Embassy Hotel for one night. Here I want to share my review regarding my stay in here.

Hotel: Le Embassy Hotel, Georgetown Penang
Date Check In: 21/11/2021 (1 Night stay)
Room: Counselor Queen Room (Room No: 205)
Price: RM 220
Booking through: Official website at
Deposit: RM100 Refundable
Breakfast: Yes

From Terminal Bus Sungai Nibong, the distance from Le Embassy is around 10km. As I was using GrabCar, I was charged RM16.35. I am very excited as I saw the building is very historical look. Built in 1957, Le Embassy Hotel is a fully restored heritage hotel situated in the historical heart of George Town. Travel back in time the moment you set foot into Le Embassy Hotel and be charmed by its timeless yet modern design concept.

Unfortunately the carpark is very limited and first come first served. 

The TOPS around 10 minutes walked from the hotel. Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul is only less than 5 minutes walked. As this hotel strategically located in the middle of the city, it is suitable for anyone for exploring Penang easily.

Check-In / Lobby
It was smooth. As I mentioned earlier, deposit is RM100 which is refundable upon checking out. The lobby of the hotel is not spacious but comfortable space for few people to check it. As it is inspired by modern design concept, you will be welcoming by big WELCOME shoes rug, one long sofa, checkered design floor plus the drawer look for the receptionist's counter.

My room was 205 which is Counselor Queen Room. It is spacious enough which I can move easily around the room. As my room located in the corner, all I can say my room is bigger than any Counselor Queen Room. The room is inspired by the scenes in the early 20’s, the design concept introduces a nostalgic throwback – a classic good old yesteryear with a sense of sophistication, quirkiness and upper class.


Love the idea of table mirror which can move easily left or right. The first hotel I saw this kind of table mirror. The working table is not that big as my usual preference, but once you clear everything on the table, you can do your work comfortable. The chair also ergonomically comfortable.


The bed is super comfortable plus they provided with four comfortable pillows. After a tiring day exploring Penang, this kind of bed is what you need to make your night rest the best and ready for the next day.


Surprisingly, there are two contemporary painting hanging on the wall in the room which make complete the look. The television position is weirdly located on the wall which not parallel straight with the position of the bed and its make your watching television a little bit uncomfortable, but not really a problem for me, as I barely watching television as I am too busy exploring the city in the day and directly sleep at night as too tired.

In a day, the natural light goes through the colored-glass window and make the bathroom green color which some of you might uncomfortable with, for me, its probable fine as green is a cool light and make your morning calm and soothing. 

Hot shower is provided and the pressure is great. There is a water hose next to the toilet (you know what I mean).


There is no shower curtain in the bathroom, so after the shower, your toilet/sink will completely wet. For the amenities, they are using the ROSSLYN FRANCE Hair & Body Shampoo which make your shower experience luxuriously indulgent. For whoever love to collect Hotel Body & Hair Shampoo, do not worry, you can buy the products at the lobby counter, RM139 for 2 (Christmas Promotion valid till 25/12/2021).



When I opened the window in the bathroom, the KOMTAR building is in sight directly. 

When you are traveling in Penang, my suggestion is lets have a breakfast outside as Penang offers variety of incredible and yummy breakfast around the city. Le Embassy Hotel also offers breakfast to their guest. There are six breakfast special menu for you to choose, and you need to let reception know your choice during your check-in. And the breakfast will be deliver at your room in the morning in the day.


So as for me, I had chosen set C: Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng and Set D: Nasi Tomato Ayam Masak Merah. My verdict, it's yummy and make my tummy full.

Senior Citizen / OKU Suitability
Definitely yes. Le Embassy offered Senior citizen/OKU facilities friendly. Even though the hotel only having three floors, but the hotel having a lift inside the building which makes the guest with special assistance move easily inside the hotel. Kudos.

Will I stay in here in the future?
A big yes for me. I love the location of the hotel and the room is cozy, comfortable and classic plus the price is affordable. Here are the other type of room they offered:

Ambassador Room - 3pax

Attache' Room

Counselor Twin Room
12, Jalan Burma, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang
