Hotels in Gurney are best for shopping, offering guests’ easy access to a couple of the island’s most popular malls – Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon Mall. Separated from the sea by only a low brick wall embankment and a narrow stretch of road, most rooms in Gurney hotels along this strip offer guests’ views of the calm grey ocean waters. Besides indulging in retail therapy along this strip, travellers are also treated to some of the best food on Penang Island, with the popular Gurney Drive Hawker Centre located right beside Gurney Plaza. The open air complex is home to dozens of stalls selling Penang hawker favourites such as char kway teow, asam laksa and cendol, and given the cheap price of food, it is very popular with locals and even tourists who come to try local food.
Surprisingly hotels in Gurney are quiet stay selections, and unsurprisingly, they are especially popular with families.
