Oyster in a shell
Intimate and very comfortable; very friendly and accommodating staff. Centrally located in heart of historic district for easy walkable access to unique sights and famous outdoor art locations. Excellent and variety of food choice experiences. May not appeal to all travelers who are accustomed to traditional amenities, but will appeal to those who are open-minded and appreciate life's simpler pleasures, such as: leaving your shoes near the front door; no elevator; no refrigerator in the room; no door but curtain separating toilet to bed; limited tv channels; only 8 but delightful rooms in hotel; night market and entertainment may be noisy for some.

The staff were fantastic. Location was central to all the heritage Georgetown has to offer. Being located at the busy strip, it can be a bit noisy at times. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Awesome stay in the heart of Penang!
Great concept of having a shared kitchen and lounge area. As a guest you have the choice to stay in your room or use these areas and meet and mingle with other guests. You can do whatever you prefer! It did mean, more options then your usual room has, like a coffee machine, a fridge, nice relaxing spaces to enjoy, etc. We absolutely loved it!

Beautiful boutique hotel right in the heart of Georgetown with some great street eats and short stroll to Love Lane for the nightlife. Hotel is over 2 levels, no lift so just to get to the first level is a set of stairs for those of you who would find this difficult probably wouldn't like this. Great self serve kitchen on the first level with tea and coffee making facilities and lovely undercover seating area. Second level is a lounging area indoors and outdoor pool, although no shade. Room was great, clean with a nice comfortable bed, block out curtains and double glazing on windows to block out noise, only bad thing is the bathroom is only separated by a curtain which was not sufficient when hubby had a dose of the runs. Staff are fantastic, let you know all the great restaurants in the area. Will be back again.

This hotel is a boutique hotel located on one of the main streets in Georgetown, Penang. Close to food and sights. Easy to get a Grab and delicious char siew and chicken rice downstairs, just steps away. Raj was super friendly and great to be greeted by. Breakfast was a nice addition too. Only thing with our room is that there seemed to always be so many mosquitos! Couldn’t get rid of them!

Wonderful stay!
Incredible service, all staff members were really friendly and made sure our stay was as pleasant as possible. We booked a room with a king size bed, and it was really comfortable. Room itself was a bit smaller than expected and had very little storage space, but it was in excellent condition. The breakfast was very good to have, even though you have many options for an early meal around the hotel. On that, you are within walking distance of many of the highlights of George Town, if you can bare the heat.

This is a residential hotel so no reception which can cause issues. Cooked to order breakfast fantastic but they must implement better ordering system

Clean and simple elegance are their hallmarks. However, noise insulation could be better.

The staff are LOVELY - attentive and welcoming. The location is superb - walking distance from everywhere. Being in the centre of things has its draw backs - Chulia Street is full of bars which are open until 3 am or later so there is some noise but the room is triple glazed and it didn't bother me but it might annoy light sleepers. The decor and fittings are really up to date modern. The bathroom / toilet is perfect EXCEPT only has a curtain between it and the bedroom. Everything else is so well planned that I am sure a sliding solid door could have been installed. The room is small and with limited storage. We had two suitcases anf could really only unpack one. The stairs from the entrance to the accommodation are steep and could be difficult/impossible for anyone with even moderate mobility issues. The pool is about 5m x 2m and so is a plunge pool rather than a swimming pool. There are no steps on the inside of the pool to get out so for someone who did not have sufficient strength getting out would be a struggle. Coffee / Tea facilities are available 24/7 - a nice touch to be able to come in from a sweaty walk around George Town and have a refreshing green tea! The premises are expanding and will soon have 4 more rooms with their own private outdoor terrace seating areas and at street level, the management have just opened a wine shop and adjoining tasting lounge and will be developing two other shop fronts into facilities for the hotel residents.
