We stayed in the family room and it has a simple but comfy layout. There are toilets and a basin for guests at 2nd but showers are shared at 1st floor..small shower space but love the water pressure. Overall a typical simple guesthouse yet clean and comfy. Recommended.

very friendly and charming hotel but noisy if you are a light sleeper”
Very charming place, had a beautiful room with a lovely window. Very welcoming host. However it isn't a quiet place. There are 2 mosques nearby, 5am prayers, which sets off the dogs nearby and then the shops roll up their shutters and scooter traffic starts. If noise isn't an issue, I am particularly sensitive to it, then it's really a great place. All the heritage places will have the same problem.

Good choice”
If coming from the airport, be sure to tell your taxi driver exactly where it is. There is Armenian Place, Armenian Hotel and Armenian House. When I arrived, it was locked at all lights were out. It looked like it was closed down. I went next door and asked the lady next door to call. When the owner arrived she was apologetic and very friendly. I would recommend staying here. The cafe interior is nice and airy, a good place to do some laptop work if that's your thing. The room is quite small but thankfully it has windows (can't say that about many in Penang) that open wide, giving you some air and space. There is no wardrobe or closet. Just a bed, two nightstands and a coat rack. Bed is very comfortable, shared shower has great pressure. During the day hours there is a rhythmic, low-frequency hum of electricity from the cafe. I didn't mind, but it may annoy some. Location is perfect. Right in the heart of the tourist area but it's very quiet, as the rooms are set back from the street.

Such a lovely place to stay”
This is one of the nicest places I have stayed in for a whaile for the money. It is located in the heart of Georgetown located on Jalan Armenian. The building is over 200 years old and a lovely period property with a coffee shop underneath. The owner was such a lovely person whio made sure we had everything we needed and even gave us a life back to the bus station the morning we left. The rooms/shower blocks are so clean and you have spacious rooms with air con....def worth staying here.

Relaxed Stay in Georgetown”
Casual laid back feel, location, value for money
We chose Armenian House based on the excellent reviews it had been receiving. We also wanted to try something a bit different from the standard hotel type accommodation we usually book when in Penang. We were not disappointed. The owner and her family put a great deal of energy and themselves in to making Armenian House a relaxed almost homestay style experience. They have retained the simple, shop house feel of the orginal property which adds to its charm. This includes squeaky floor boards and the like - so once you tune in to the rythmn of the building you feel right at home. The shared bathrooms were very clean, private and efficient - so don't let this put you off. The location is great and is on one of Georgetown's better redeveloped streets/lanes with many interesting shops. Overall this place is excellent value.

great stay because of location and old-world charm”
friendly local staff; great location, charming old house
This was my second time at Armenian House and we had a really nice room overlooking the street with quaint windows with shutters. The day I arrived (Saturday) was atmospheric because the street in front was closed off to traffic and there were little stalls like a mini-bazaar day. I didn't mind the noise and singing in front of the hotel (which fortunately ended before bedtime) because it made for charming and lively street scape which I was able to look down on conveniently from our room windows.

friendly staff, charming old house”
Great location in the heritage area of Georgetown; run by a hospitable local Penang family in a quaint and quiet old house
My stay was short but nevertheless I got a taste of the essence of the place. The owner and her family /relatives are friendly local Penang people who are ever happy to share stories about Penang. The setting, with a very casual olde-worldy cafe / lounge at the entrance/foyer is inviting and makes one want to linger on for a coffee and/or yarn. The rooms are basic, clean and simple but the attraction of this place is the charming restored heritage house it is in and the staff which make you feel like you are a guest in their house. I enjoyed being a room with windows overlooking the internal courtyard.

Good location & atmosphere, comfortable stay
A great place to get away and relax. The cafe downstairs serves great coffee and cheese cakes. Traditionally renovated with great details. The stairs to the room is steep. The staff is friendly and easy approachable. The hotel location is right in the heart of the Heritage site. I spent almost 4 hours walking around the area. Armenian house offers great values and the owner is friendly.

Great value rooms in the centre of Heritage area”
Location was terrific in the centre of Georgetown heritage area,bedding and linen was very comfortable, family run hotel made it very friendly indeed with the use of a cafe lounge area downstairs
Good value for money given the bedding and room standard.The location was great in the heart of all the sightseeing to be done and the cafe downstairs is available to relax around with wifi.The breakfast was fine with great coffees served up as and when you need it.All in all a lovely heritage house with a great feel and ambience to it that immerses you in the heritage area surroundings.I would recommend for people who want to get connected to the people and place.

A wonderful guesthouse in an amazing location”
I highly recommend staying at the Armenian House. It is a wonderfully atmospheric heritage house that has been nicely restored.. It keeps the feel of a historic building while still having all of the modern touches including very fast wifi. It is extremely well maintained and very clean. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. This place really can't be beat for value or overall quality.

Perfect location right in the heart of George Town. Khim the owner was so knowledgeable and welcoming. The room was super clean and we had the best nights sleep in Asia! The shared bathroom was immaculate all the time too so we didn't mind sharing. The welcome drink and use of the washing machine just topped it off! I can't recommend this place more... a truly wonderful place to stay!!!!

It was a great stay. In the middle of Georgetown within a few minutes walk to the ferry station as well to the bus terminal it's a perfect spot to check the heritage area of Georgetown out. The host is a super friendly and open person. The helped me a lot with getting around and finding good food places. The room was comfortable and clean. Same goes for the shared bathrooms. I can highly recommend the place.

Love Armenian House!”
Awesome staff, great location in the old city, clean, comfortable rooms
Loved it so much, we stayed two weeks! Armenian House is a hotel and cafe in an old Chinese shophouse (so it has a lot of character). The rooms are clean and the beds and pillows are super comfy! The location is great too - close to Little India and there is a hawker center just down Armenian Street where you can get a buffet breakfast for less than 7 ringgit per person (suitable for vegetarians too!). The staff is so friendly and always smiled and greeted us when we got back. We would highly recommend Armenian House for any stay in Georgetown!

Very well located in George Town, room is basic but clean and comfortable, shared bathroom is also clean with a washing machine that can be used free of charge. The only minus would be the very thin walls, so inconsiderate neighbours stomping through the hall, slamming doors or making lots of noise can be quite annoying. But overall we had a lovely stay here

I highly recommend Armenian House for flashpacker types. The location is perfect - right in the heart of Georgetown, and close to Little India. I was a bit wary about sharing a bathroom, but the design and cleanliness of this place meant it was no problem at all. The service here is most excellent. My needs were very well attended to, and I felt well taken care of. A very well run business and a pleasant atmosphere. Thumbs up!
