Under new management and boasting a refurbished look, Merchant Hotel is conveniently located on Penang Road. The place really has been given an overhaul and a fresh new facade now looks out over the city, the mountains and the sea.
There are just under a hundred rooms and three types of accommodation to choose from, superior, deluxe or executive. All rooms come with free mini bar refreshments, breakfast, in house Wifi, airconditioning, bath tub and shower, and a safety box. Interestingly, Merchant Hotel is a great choice for female travellers as there is an exclusive floor just for ladies. All of the chamber maids for this floor are women and guests can rest assured that their comfort and safety is a priority. But more than that, women travellers can take advantage of special amenities like a spa and make up kit, hair accessories and costume jewellery. Business guests too can enjoy the calm privacy of a floor dedicated to corporate travellers and make use of special amenities like computer and mobile accessories.
Relax at the 24 hour lounge or work up a sweat in the hotel’s gym. At the moment, only breakfast is served but the hotel is planning a diner.
