Areca Hotel Penang, Penang
Very nice boutique hotel in Georgetown
Very nice boutique hotel in Georgetown. It may seem far to attractions, but everything is close by via free bus or Uber, which we found easier and very cheap for our family of four. We didn’t get a chance to try the included breakfast as we had a very early start both nights we were there. Our family room was very big and well furnished.

If you need a heritage hotel, to match your destination of George Town, look no further. Newly renovated hotel with all of the modern luxuries still maintained the old flair of a private estate lodging. Very welcoming, helpful and a personalized service is making your stay an enjoyable experience. The managers Mrs. and Mr. Othman, their staff could not have been more helpful, even flooding on the roads could not shake them and helped me to get to the airport on time! Not only are the rooms great, but the restaurant will need a special mentioning. A unique fusions style is mixing Thai, Malay and a hint of Italian in the dishes. It is fresh, seasonal and healthy on top of everything super yummy. I let Chef and Manager Mr. Azman to create a dish for me, was more just than pleased. Perfect stay for single travelers and families alike. Little India is walking distance, shopping is around the corner. We will be back, hope sooner than later!
