About Paramount

Set overlooking the beach on George Town’s northern shoreline, Paramount offers accommodation in a British Colonial-style residence. Guests benefit from the convenience of a 24-hour front desk along with complimentary Wi-Fi during their stay.

Accommodation options include single and double/twin rooms as well as family rooms, some of which offer sea views. Rooms offer both air conditioning and en suite bathroom facilities, and include a work desk.

Guests can take advantage of conveniences such as laundry services and a safe-deposit box. This smoke-free hotel offers complimentary parking.

A light complimentary breakfast, as well as other meals that attract a surcharge, are served in the hotel’s restaurant, Ocean Green. Guests can also check out local dining options such as What The Duck and the Chok Dee Thai Restaurant.

Paramount lies within two miles of the Clan Jetties of Penang, a village of traditional stilt houses. KOMTAR Tower, with its popular Rainbow Skywalk, is a little over a mile from the property.

Positive Reviews

Appealing location

Guests at this Georgetown hotel have found its location appealing. As it’s set away from the city centre, guests have found the surroundings fairly peaceful while still describing attractions and amenities within easy reach. The hotel has sometimes proved a little tricky to find, though, so best take a map!

Good service from staff

Guests have reported a positive experience with the staff here, frequently mentioning that they found the staff friendly and available for questions. The sentiment applies to all staff, from those manning the front desk to those guarding the doors late at night.

Breakfast has proved to be a bonus

While breakfast here is a fairly simple affair, it seems that very few guests were expecting anything at all. With that in mind, the complimentary morning meal has proved to be a little bonus for many who have stayed here.

Negative Reviews

Rooms could use a facelift

A lack of cleanliness doesn't appear to be a regular concern here but guests have commented that the accommodation would benefit from updates. Various small maintenance issues are reported, with guests also less than impressed by the standard of the Wi-Fi.

Bathrooms could be improved

Low water pressure seems to be a regular problem at this hotel, with many guests reporting that the showers are less than impressive. Ventilation - or lack thereof - in the bathrooms is also cited as a concern.

Parking is not guaranteed

Guests who have travelled here in their own car and expected to find parking available to them were disappointed to find that spaces were limited. Patrons visiting a nearby restaurant and filling up the spaces prove to be a particular problem during the evening.
