Wonderful hotel in Georgetown with a great staff
Great place to stay in Georgetown. It's historic and beautifully updated. The staff is wonderful - always willing to help. Nice pool that is well-maintained. Breakfast is included in their restaurant next to the hotel and includes eastern and western options We also had dinner in the restaurant on 3 nights and that was good as well. The hotel is convenient to the Georgetown night market, and the sights in Georgetown. Bus 101 will take you farther out to the beach or national park. If you need a change from Asian food, try Il Bacaro restaurant a few blocks from the hotel. There are many good places to eat in the area. There is a self-serve laundry down the street from the hotel.

Great staff!
The staff at Yeng Keng was fabulous! They went above and beyond to be helpful, ensure we had everything we needed, and highlight local attractions. One of the staff even helped me book an earlier flight home! Room was always clean, good wifi and AC, complimentary breakfast with lots of options.

Lovely historical boutique hotel in the old heart of George Town. Best hotel breakfast we've had in Malaysia, by far! Our only issue was with the hardness of the bed on our Western bodies. We loved the decor and the pool, but most of all, we loved Mildred! Thank you for making our introduction to Malaysia so welcoming, Mildred. You are an asset to your employers.
