The Prestige Hotel In Penang Brings You Back To Victorian Era’s Flavours Of Decadence
Penang is a culturally rich enclave brimming with mouth-watering street food. It’s no wonder tourists are streaming into this historic centre.
If you’re looking for a place to stay that promises the cultured vacation you’ve been thirsting for, The Prestige Hotel is a colonial-style hotel that opened in June 2019.
Located in the heart of Georgetown, it’s as atas and elegant as you’d imagine it to be from its name.
Did we mention that they have a glasshouse-inspired cafe that transports you to a Victorian Eden, but with a modern, minimalist touch?
Let’s take a peek beneath The Prestige Hotel’s majestic exterior.
Modern Victorian design of The Prestige Hotel
As you arrive at the entrance, be prepared to be taken away by the sheer grandeur of its Victorian-style architecture.
The contemporary colonial setting will whisk you away to a world where the English once hailed Victoria as their queen.
Seems almost like a real-life fantasy where you’re the crazy rich Asian.
Affordable dining at The Glasshouse
The highlight of the hotel is its restaurant The Glasshouse. It’s the perfect spot where generous sunlight streams through the wide windows to nourish the weary workaholic in you.
It’s also a great place to eat your stress away. The spectre of CBD shall not bother you here.
The best part? Most of their mains range between RM18 to RM45 (S$6 to S$15), with the kitchen mainly specialising in Western cuisine.
Yay for affordable comfort food.
Futuristic rooms with heritage aesthetics
The Prestige Hotel boasts beautifully designed rooms that will help you relax and unwind. Anything that pleases the eyes, pleases the mind, right?
We’re not sure about you, but the golden structure brings to mind the glitzy style of 2013’s The Great Gatsby movie posters.
You can choose your preferred room type from Deluxe, Premier Deluxe or Deluxe Trio, with room prices starting from ~S$80.
As a bonus, here’s a picture featuring the mesmerising view of Weld Quay and the ocean from The Prestige Hotel’s rooftop pool.
