Nam Keng Hotel, Penang
Good6.0
Not worth the stay
For sure not for biz as the internet is slow and breakfast starts at 8am. This is way below the usual 6am. After knowing my early departure, they prepared a miserable bread with jam and coffee, not even egg, yogurt, fruit, bacon.... It is ~ US1 worth for the RM 300 hotel per night stay. Not coming back. By the way, no parking, just a public road side that is available only after late night as the stretch could be parked by the pub goers.

Lovely little gem!
This is a real hidden gem! Doesn't appear on any of the "top lists" for Heritage hotel stays in Penang, but we booked it based on the stellar reviews on Trip Advisor and the outstanding rate in Hotels.com... and were so happy with it when we arrived! Big bedroom, lovely internal courtyard to have breakfast, beautiful heritage features in the building, quiet location in a quiet street off Lebuh Chulia, and nice friendly receptionists. The positive points: > Big bedroom with comfy firm bed & soft pillows, good air conditioning > Quiet peaceful room in the back (the "Majestic" room) > Lovely décor to give guests the heritage hotel feel > Fantastic location -- easy walk to Chowrasta Market, Chulia street night hawker, Love Lane bars, street art, and easy walk to anything in Georgetown! We were only there for a weekend hence wandered around Georgetown mainly. > Friendly reception staff who made you feel welcome! > Simple breakfast of nasi lemak and very tasty nyonya kueh > Powerful showerheads in the bathroom! Downsides: can't think of any....! You will need to walk upstairs 1 floor to the bedrooms, but there are 2 rooms downstairs as well.
