Paramount Hotel - George Town, Penang


PARAMOUNT HOTEL is one of a few in the heart of George Town City, Penang, with a beach front where, traditionally, locals would come for a leisurely meal by the sea and fishermen in small boats would their catch for the local market. They still do.

While you stay here, expect to see the nearby fisherfolk land fish, crabs, even lobsters. And you can get it cooked immediately at the hotel’s restaurant, Ocean Green, which is one of the best seafood eatery in town.

Established in 1948 and run by a family for three generations, Paramount is housed in a quaint British colonial bungalow that has retained its old charms. Its management remains traditional – as in the good old days, fuss-free, friendly and efficient with personal attention.

Its 15 rooms of various sizes have been refurbished recently (mid-2009) and now boasts modern amenities like upgraded air-conditioning and toilets, and free Internet access.
