An oasis
We recently spent a few delightful nights at Kelatan House and loved it. The staff we met, Mr Chew, Yap and Kevin were great. They gave us a lot of information and a lot of laughs. The atmosphere is something special as the house has been sensitively restored. It is very quiet and calm which is perfect after a day seeing all the wonders of Penang.

Cosy with a heritage touch
We didn't wana get out of this place after checking in. A well-appointed inn with a touch of heritage. We didn't mind the detached bathroom because it gives a true experience staying in a heritage house. You still get your own bathroom all for yourself except it is outside the room. The only drawback of our stay is the noise by the barking dog of the opposite house affecting our sleep. Do not miss this hidden gem, you will not be disappointed!

Unique Interior Design
Superb decoration
Overall is fine. Staff is pleasant. Complimentary tea, coffee, refreshment. Rent bike at free of charge. Free parking lot at night at first come first serve. Superior Suite is big and clean with detached private bathroom. However, internet is unstable, sometimes is fast sometimes can't even use. And both of us can't sleep well at night due to the water sound from the decor fountain as we stay downstairs. Hope management will improve it soon.

Totally fine though lacking personality
Location near to the bus station
We booked three nights at this hotel. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it it just lacks a little je ne sais quoi. The staff are super polite, the room was nice and clean with good air con but our room was on the ground floor where the bathroom was across the court yard. I ate something that didnt agree with me so getting dressed finding the key in the dark trying to open the door without waking the hubbie and running across the courtyard bedore i had an accident wasnt ideal. It would have been nice to have a breakfast option. They do have free bikes to use which is fab thoughh we didnt use them. It was nice but have stayed in better for less.
