Love it & Extended My Stay!!
I had a great experience during my initial stay at Cocoa Mews that I decided to extend and stay two more nights. The guesthouse is centrally located in the heart of Little India, close to the ferry, local attractions and bus lines. The rooms are clean and common areas comfortable. The host, Howie, is passionate and always available to tell you about the area, give you ideas for local activities and share with you local delicacies. It’s overall a great place to stay while enjoying Penang Island.

A great place to stay!
Cocoa Mews is the perfect place to stay while on Penang Island. Located in Little India, it’s a short walk from the pier and close to the bus lines. The accommodations are simple but clean with a shared kitchen area and a nice patio from which you can watch the bustling street vendors. The host, Howie, is passionate, experienced and full of smiles. He will share with you the island’s history, culture, walk you through the neighborhood and even show you where to buy cheap beer! There are 13 rooms and even though the walls are thin, everyone is very considerate which ensured a quiet night. I would highly recommend Cocoa Mews to anyone traveling to Penang!!
