Dear Malay/Indonesian Symposium Participant,
Following is some information concerning accommodation in Penang,
from the internet.
Thanks to Peter Cole for his efforts in obtaining the information,
and apologies from me for not having done a better job of editing it.
Many of you may already have seen some of the enclosed
information, in which case apologies, also, for the repetition.
Looking forward to seeing you in Penang,
Many of us are already booked at the Crown Prince Hotel.
The Crown Prince Hotel is offering a special "internet rate" of RM 135
per night (tax and buffet breakfast included), which comes to a little
under US $ 50. This is apparently about one half of the regular rate. (I
stayed at this hotel last year: it's international standard, situated
right on the beach, and the breakfasts are excellent.) In order to book,
fax the hotel, at 60-4-890-4777, and ask for the special internet rate,
specifying RM 135 per night. (Do not ask for a conference rate, as this
may be higher.)
