i stayed for another night in penang after i bade goodbye to docgelo, tina and gabby as they went back home to their rented condominium in butterworth. my flight to kuala lumpur is scheduled at mid afternoon the next day so i had the chance to check the nightlife at georgetown. from tune hotel, i decided to transfer to another accommodation for a one night stay in vistana hotel.
this hotel was suggested by an indian cab driver after asking him which was the nearest hotel at the airport. he drove me to the hotel and i checked in as a walk-in guest, i was given a deluxe room number 1602.
the room is clean and has complete amenities that one needs for an overnight stay.
i slept comfortably on their king size bed that i almost missed breakfast the next day, likely that i was tired from my temple visits with docgelo or had to blame the local beer i chugged at a nightclub in georgetown. 😉
satellite television with entertainment channels and high-speed internet was available in the room. the buffet breakfast was average and pescetarian friendly.
the gym was fully equipped and they also have a swimming pool which are all well maintained.
the staff at vistana are all courteous and helpful. the limousine service to the airport was quite expensive for RM29 but i did not want to sacrifice myself being drenched in the rain that suddenly poured when i was about to check out – i noticed the rain had always followed me during my trip!
i love the bed, rob! so this was your ‘other’ hotel.
was it really the beer? haha! 😛
but where’s the photo of your breakfast?
PS : do check out your email, i sent you photos of our soon-to-be-rented-new condo by july.
.. yes this is it, haha! blame it with the “tiger beer” of malaysia!
.. did not took a photo doc, i got too lazy bringing my camera to the dining area. will be posting my food adventure in kl.
.. wow, i’m waiting for those pictures, will check it out. 🙂
hhmm. better than the previous one. safe pa! hehe.
.. better, so costlier. you get what you pay for. 🙂
wow! ang ganda naman ng hotel mu rob. mayaman ka nga talaga as per chyng! hehe. i wish i had met docgelo din. actually i stayed in georgetown but according to my guidebook, it’s also known as penang to tourists. will stay tuned for your malaysia series.
.. gael kung mayaman ako uuwi na lang ako sa pinas! haha. sayang nga di mo nameet si doc, at sayang din at di pa nagkatugma yung punta natin sa malaysia.
.. mas hinihintay ko ang malaysia backpacking posts mo! kailan ba kayo mag-india? i’m planning late this year, pero napaparanoid ako pumunta mag-isa. 😦
you take great interior shots. i can never get shots like that of hotel rooms.
.. thanks maria! 🙂
i’m taking a mental note of this hotel. just in case my cousin won’t be around to accommodate us in her flat. :p
.. it’s also accessible with public transportation wits, highly recommended.
nice hotel! it’s good they have free rooms to accommodate you.
.. it’s only P2500 per night sheng, you can’t find a hotel like that low-priced in manila.
you started your malaysia series pala, this will be handy for me when i go there this sept. looking forward for more. 🙂
.. yes claire, always glad to help.
