About Coffee Atelier


Situated right in the center of the UNESCO World Heritage city of Georgetown, Coffee Atelier is a collection of 5 beautifully-restored shophouses dating back to 1927. In 2010, the building underwent a soft renovation, conserving as much as possible of the old building substance.

Coffee Atelier features a mix of 6 spacious suites appointed with all modern amenities , 55 Cafe & Restaurant, the Gehrig Art Gallery and its own Kopi coffee museum.

Most major tourist attractions are within walking distance. It is a 2-minute walk to bustling Chulia Street, a 10-minute walk to the Blue Mansion and Khoo Khongsi. Coffee Atelier is a 15-minute drive from Gurney Drive and a 30-minute drive from Penang International Airport.

Fitted with either tiled or wooden flooring, the approximate 500sqft air-conditioned suites feature a spacious bed room (or two in the case of the first floor suites) and a private bathroom. A flat-screen TV with a DVD player, tea/coffee making facilities and a mini fridge are included. Housekeeping is provided.

Return guests still impressed
Our third visit was like coming home. The staff who had made us so welcome on other visits were there to greet us warmly and we were to stay in the same downstairs room we had enjoyed before. The owner Stephan was also there to welcome us with a drink and later in our stay was able to recommend an excellent Malaysian Chinese restaurant Teksen a short stroll away. Breakfasts remain of high standard, fresh fruit, muesli, yoghurt, choice of eggs and their coffee excellent. With the Old Town right outside our door we spent our days walking the streets of our neighbourhood exploring and revisiting the places we had enjoyed before. If you enjoy a good flat white and fresh-baked goods Mugshot is just around the corner. Must comment again on the professionalism of the staff who take such good care of their guests.

Great Boutique Hotel
A warmth welcome from the staff, showed us the facilities of the suite. A well furnished and cozy room. The room is so big like can accommodate 6 adult in a time, but you must bring your mattress. Hahaha! However we find the staircase is a bit dark for elderly, as my mum missed her step twice, luckily no felt during the stay. Overall, we like it very much!

Great staff, clean rooms
Staff are very helpful and will give you tips on local sights and services. Rooms are very clean and made up daily. You have your own toilet and shower and ground floor rooms have their own courtyard (no smoking in rooms so handy for smokers)

Great all around
A nice little boutique hotel with nice staff! The room was as described, I wasn't expecting the big backyard/bathroom so it was a nice surprise. Breakfast was quite filling in the morning. Great experience all around!

nice room, good coffee, breakfast so so
good location, good coffee, nice staff
It was a nice stay. It is a bit overpriced, especially for the boring breakfast.

Step back in time but not in comfort
Staff/Owner - Beautifully renovated building - Central location
It was not the first time I stayed in this hotel but I enjoyed it's ambiance just as much as the first time and my company did it, too. It's in a nicely renovated and tastefully furnished old building close to Little India. We especially enjoyed the attention to details wherever we looked and the spacious living areas. Few years later I found the same friendly staff there. Hope to be back again.
