We Love It!
A gem of class and culture, Yeng Keng has everything you want. The rooms are not large, but they are perfectly appointed. The pool is a delight after touring about on a hot Penang day. But the service is what elevates Yeng Keng above others. Raj and Nanda can solve every problem! We can't wait to go again.

Yeng Keng is a great place to stay while in Penang. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The staff Kellen and Yeoh are very friendly and helpful. They helped us make reservation of restaurants and gave us good suggestions on where to go, for eg, China House, and the nearby Joo Hooi coffee shop, which we liked much. The breakfast spread was very substantial and we really looked forward to the breakfast every morning. The room is very comfortable. The only downside to our room at #108 is that the WiFi is not strong and quite unstable. We had to stay close to the main door in order to be able to get the WiFi signal. The air-con unit is not connected to the main switch and hence it has to be switched on and off separately. Overall we still like Yeng Keng very much, as it is such a lovely heritage hotel.

Lovely heritage oasis of calm
Fantastic little hotel right in the thick of good food and bars, close to all the heritage sites. Breakfast a bit average - had arrived from Singapore where our breakfast service had been EXCELLENT all freshly cooked and hot. Much of Yeng Keng’s hot Breakfast was cold! However, the staff and our room were fab. Highly recommend

If you’re looking for an affordable family holiday, I would recommend Yeng Keng, with its central location and is within walking distance to tourist attractions and public transport. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
