Hotel GLOW by Zinc @ Jalan Macalister, Georgetown, Penang

If you are looking for a place to stay this Merdeka weekend, with the convenience to the delicious hawker food stalls in Georgetown. Put Hotel GLOW into your search list. Located on Macalister Road and within walking distance to KOMTAR/ 1st Avenue Mall and the famous New Lane hawker stalls. Not to mention, it is 300 – 500 metres walk from the freshly made tau sah pheah from Ghee Hiang. If you are an adventurous person and doesn’t mind the sun, it is a good starting point to discover the historical Penang.

Hotel GLOW focus on comfortable bedding, basic gym access, free WIFI access, self served breakfast to go and great showers and amenities. Best of all, at a reasonable price. Despite being in the heart of the city, Glow offers an ample of space in the room to allow their guests to unpack and roam around comfortably with a modern interior.




Greeting you with a light and refreshing scent of lemongrass, upon stepping into the room. I use to dislike the lemongrass scent until i learn that it keeps mosquitoes and insects away. Just  FYI, the room is insect free! :)


A welcome candy was placed on top of the bed to welcome their guest. Also on the dressing table, a complimentary plate of fruits were prepared to welcome their guests. I appreciate the thought and effort the hotel is putting to ensure the comfort and hospitality of their guests.


The cleaniness of the bathroom, is the number one criteria on my list. As long as the bathrooms are kept clean and proper with no stains, that’s the hotel i’ll go for. Again, Hotel Glow nail it by meeting all of the above. I’m sure many of you would agree with me on this. Rushing back to a hotel after a daily load of the scrumptious hawker food, a comfortable toilet seat will be the next spot! HAHAHA!
