[酒店分享] GLOW Hotel | 槟城最新的现代酒店

GLOW Hotel, Penang’s latest Chic Hotel!

自从乔治市被列入世界文化遗产之后,槟城聚集了来自四面八方的游客。各国游客冲着槟城而来,绝对是因为其世遗地位、垂涎的地道美食,以及经过翻新的古迹建筑物。

随着游客的剧增,酒店房的需求也跟着提高。由Zinc管理的GLOW Hotel耸立在繁华的中路,附近遍布槟城美食,现代化的装修绝对突显你的时尚品味与格调。

Recently, our dear little Penang island has been seeing a steady influx of tourist for all four corners of the world. This has definitely due to our world heritage status, great local food and the mushrooming of recently refurbished and restored heritage buildings. With an increase in tourists, it’s pretty obvious there will surely be more demands for rooms and accommodation. GLOW hotel is one of the answer, and a pretty solid one too.

GLOW Hotel, managed by Zinc is conveniently situated along Macalister Road, a main trunk road that leads directly to city’s heritage zone and other places of interests (think good food). A full renovated and refurbished boutique hotel, it comes with great style, facilities, services all in an affordable price!

抵达酒店时,映入眼帘的是酒店崭新干净的大厅,充满浓浓的现代感。接待柜台甚至与吧台链接在一起,是个非常善于利用空间的独特设计。

Arriving at to review the place, we are warmly greeted with a chic and clean lobby with a modern feel. It even has a bar counter directly connected to the reception area. Now that’s what we call a good use of space.

酒店走廊的装饰简洁利落,昏黄的灯光让酒店充满现代感。

The corridors to the rooms are also well renovated and illuminated with lighting to spice up the area.

原本对中价酒店抱着不高期望的我们,竟对房内宽广的空间以及完善设施感到意外和惊喜。除了32寸LED电视荧幕,房内还备有迷你冰箱和咖啡等饮料。

While we are not expecting much from a mid-priced hotel in the city’s center, we are amazed that our room’s interior quite spacious and well equipped with stuff like 32′ LED TV, complimentary coffee/drinks, a safe and a mini fridge for keeping your personal drinks.

用大片玻璃将沐浴区及厕所分隔,令空间更显宽敞。墙壁和地面的色泽让人倍感舒服。

The toilet too feels really spacious with the glass dividing the shower for the other area. The wall and especially the flooring feels really cool and relaxing too.

我们这房面向市中心,一次过将整个乔治市映入眼帘。

Not a bad view also. Some of the rooms at the higher floors offer a good view of KOMTAR and Georgetown

走到酒店一楼,更令我们感到惊喜的是,空间有限的GLOW Hotel,竟然能够容纳如此面积不小的泳池,而且设计非常新颖利落,环境也很干净。

泳池坐落在酒店的露天空间,面积虽然不是很大,但却足以让你和家人享受欢愉的浸泡时光。泳池旁有小桌椅,住户可以在此阅读、上网,又或者喝杯小饮料。

Strolling down the 1st floor where most of the hotel’s facilities are located, we were excited and amazed to know how a hotel this size can actually squeeze some decent facilities and yet making it look clean and spacious.

The elevated swimming pool located in the open air space of the hotel. While it’s not big or anything it is good enough for a soulful dip or soaking with your family. Right next to it are some deck chairs to enjoy a book (iPad?) while sipping some drinks from the bar just right behind.

小巧的健身室内有一系列健身器材,让你随时随地都能保持健康体魄。

The compact gym provides you with just the right gadgets to help keep your daily exercise quota in check.

衔接至大厅的阶梯与壁上的艺术作品相映,更增添酒店的时代感。

The stairways that are connected to the lobby are also well thought of and decorated with art pieces.

酒店内的Zest Bar Cafe面向中路,你可以在这边享用午餐、下午茶、晚餐,边欣赏熙来攘往的车辆与路人。

The restaurant/cafe commands a front view of Macalister road where you can have your lunch/tea/dinner while people watching the traffic.

如果你一个人,这里有几个朋友可以陪你消磨寂寞。

If you are alone, there are few friends that can accompany you.

坐落在泳池旁的Zesty Bar有多种饮料供选择,鸡尾酒是个不错的选择。

The Zesty bar, located right next to the swimming area is filled with the variety of drinks and cocktails for you to savour, not bad. Not bad at all.

看起来很不错的咖啡机。

Nice coffee machine by the way.

以独特的设计概念,酒店将透视的会议室建在餐厅与酒吧中央,让原本沉闷的会议增添乐趣。

Squeezed in the middle of the cafe and bar, lies a meeting room/private dining room combo. Great for some private business talks or a gathering of friends.

黄昏时分的GLOW Hotel外观,更显光彩夺目。

The hotel at dusk looks splendidly pleasant and warming.

喜欢它的标志。

Love the logo.

晚上8点,大伙儿的肚子已经饿得咕噜咕噜响,是时候品尝Zest Bar Cafe内的晚餐啦!食物和饮料的种类、味道和价格都恰到好处。

At 8p.m. our stomach has already started to rumble. It’s time to try the hotel’s restaurant offerings. Decent menu and decent food and drinks options we would say.

螃蟹芦笋汤,味道温和的浓汤配上大大个的蟹螯,非常诱人。

Crab & asparagus soup anyone? A moderately flavoured soup topped with a big crab claw. Tantalizing.

对一般亚洲人来说,主食的分量还蛮大,但材料新鲜、味道佳,所以相信我,你绝对会将它们通通吃完。

The main course portions are quite huge too for the average asian stomach but you can definitely finish it as it’s fresh and delicious.

在这趟酒店评论之旅结束前,我们在同样同样的餐厅吃早点。虽然食物种类少了点,但味道还算美味,就扯平了吧!

The next morning before ending up the review, we had the breakfast at the same restaurant. While the food options a little limited but it’s duly compensated by the food quality.

面包配上牛油块和花生酱,最经典的美味。

Bread with butter cubes and peanut butter. A classic favorite.

GLOW Hotel无疑为槟城酒店业的发展添砖加瓦。我们喜欢酒店坐落在乔治市市中心的好地点,不仅交通方便,附近便是以美食闻名的Lorong Selamat。如果你喜欢在炎热的阳光下步行,约15分钟便可抵达乔治市古迹区!

你在找寻价格合理却又干净舒适的时髦酒店?GLOW Hotel绝对是最佳选择,让你和家人有趟美好的槟城之旅!

GLOW Hotel is indeed a welcome addition to Georgetown Penang hospitality scene. We love the location as it’s conveniently located in the heart of the city. A stone’s throw away from Lorong Selamat, a popular food haven for tourists and lots of  transportation options too. If you love walking (and don’t mind the heat & humidity) then you easily reach the heritage zone on foot within 10-15 minutes!

So if you are looking for an affordable yet clean, comfortable and modern boutique hotel in Penang, GLOW Hotel is a good bet for you and your family to stay while you are in Penang!
