St Giles – The Wembley @ Penang

Hotel is the most important thing that I will consider when I’m planning a trip. The elements that I will take into consideration when I choose a hotel are cleanliness, environment, comfortableness, price and also location.

Last week, I had a short vacation to Penang again (I been there various times). This time I specifically choose St Giles Hotel – The Wembley for this 3 days 2 nights in Penang.
The Wembley is a newly opened 4-stars hotel in Penang. It is located at the heart of George Town. Shopping malls, some attractions, local-styled café and street food are just within walking distance.

I arrived the Hotel at around 2 pm. There is no one queuing for check-in, so I did not have to queue up for it. The receptionist at the front desk is friendly and also efficient. The check in process is done in a few minutes. There is refreshment provided in the Lobby Lounge, hotel guests can have some refreshment while waiting for checking in or before going out hotel.

OH! Something traveller would love it! They provide tourist guidance & maps in the lobby.

I got a deluxe room, in overall the size just nice and comfortable. A Little bit of complaint here, I personally think the light condition in the room is way dim (Without the curtain stay open). There’s DUST, nothing serious, just I personally feel it can be better 🙂

The bed and pillows are just so right for me.


The mini bar in the room.

There is a salt-water swimming pool and Gymnasium located at Level 11.

Maybe it’s weekday, so there are only a few people at the swimming pool. It’s all mine, especially during the afternoon. Something can be improved, the pool doesn’t seem to be that clean and It’s facing another under construction building.

The breakfast buffet is served at The Wembley Café which is located at Level 2. The environment of The Wembley Café is very nice and peace. They provide a series of western food, local foods and Japanese food.




Overall, the food it’s nice and I’m so glad that they do update their menu for my second-morning breakfast.

To add some little information. The Wembley provide Free WIFI in all areas and also Free Public Parking for those who are driving.

As a conclusion, I am happy with this Hotel. It’s affordable and comfortable.
