Fabulous 8.8 From 18 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great stay!
Had booked another hotel but had to relocate due to some problems there. Arrived at its doors within 30 minutes of booking, and the staff have already prepared my room for me. They were super helpful and gave me lots of useful tips about where to go in Penang. There is also biscuits, tea and coffee laid out in the courtyard common area for free consumption. The hotel itself is a delightful little heritage building with only 10 rooms. The one deterrent is some of the rooms do not have en-suite bathrooms, but instead there are stand-alone bathrooms down the corridor. It is not too inconvenient though, and you are the only one who has the key to the bathroom so it's quite private. The location of the hotel is also great, just off the main tourist area of Georgetown, but within easy walking distance to everything. Would definitely stay here again!

Very Good 8.0
A little gem of a place for people like me
It's like staying in a well to do relative's house which has been refurbished and updated. Have your mental faculties and five senses stimulated as all around are lovely bits of furniture and rescued or recycled objects put to innovative use. If you can't climb stairs to the second floor ask for one of three ground floor rooms. Quirky and not for those who want the usual highrise type hotel. You can't help bumping into other guests and staff now and then. No en suite but personal bathroom and toilet with your own key at the rear for each room. Lovely small central courtyard like a little oasis of peace and calm, make your Boh tea or instant coffee with grape or strawberry biscuits to sit at the KopiTiam table and chairs to relax a while. The fridge there has Spritzer water and beer to purchase with space to put your own stuff for breakfast or food. No cooking facilities but you would want to eat out in Penang. The Moody Cow cafe just down the road facing the hotel, turn right and turn left, has "Durian Madness" cake, an enormous slice enough for three costing 42 ringgit and gigantic 10' chocolate cookies for 12 ringgit, a must go to cafe.
