Nice cosy hostel”
I booked a single room shared bathroom and paid however upon checked in there wasn’t recorded. I gotten a free upgraded deluxe room with ensuite bathroom. It’s Bonus and I like the room concept, compact and platform bed except no windows, thin wall but was Ok for me sleep throughout for just 1night. There is no elevator staff was helpful to carry my luggage tho. Overall nice stay will be back! TQ Kim Haus.
Good Points Location in the centre of Georgetown, plenty of food available within walking distance. Great to have washing machine and dryer, Luggage lift. Recommended for young and energetic travellers. No so good points Surprised to find that the room is small just to fit 2 of us, hardly any space to move around in the room Not recommended for senior travellers as we have to climb the staircase up 3rd, 4th or 5th level.. No car park available on site. We requested for change of towels on day 2 but the towels were not changed when we can back to hotel after 10pm. We personally went to 4th level to look for the clean towels. Please look into the cleanliness of the rooms and the Water cooler. Water cooler was overfilled with water on the tray and the floor is wet. The laundry area on the 4th floor is very dim. Insufficient lighting. Some lights on the 3rd floor were faulty. None of the staff seem to notice it to replace them during the 3 days we stayed at Kim Haus.
Good location, best for backpacker”
Good ambience and breakfast. Good for backpackers since they have washing machine. Have bar and live music, so u can enjoy drinks there. They have many small space, you can grab a drink and stay there enjoy view . Cons is the water pressure is bad and no lift.
Everything was great - Great combination of hotel, restaurant and bar. Kim Haus Loft used to be a Goldsmith in the past! No Lift for the loft - had to carry up luggage up to level 5. Room was relatively small - for travellers who spend less time in the hotel
Pet friendly and with Absolute Best Location! ”
I love this place as a pet friendly hotel which my dog get to run around freely and sit with us while we have breakfast every morning. The location is also strategically located between two food streets a stone's throw away. The decoration and the room was very cozy as well. Except there's noice from the street if you're staying in executive suite. But that wasn't an issue for us. In overall I really love this place and I'm glad that we were there for the trip. Will definitely go back again!
Should hire more staff to run the loft!!”
There is only one Bangladeshi to take care of the business. People check in check out order foods drinks, preparing the food , it is all done by the same person. I have to waited 15 mins so that the staff is free to serve me. And I can see other guests are waiting too where they got fed up n just walk away. Bad experience.
Good location, antique, value for money”
It is located near local eateries (chinese noodle shop and restaurants), famous landmark (Chowrasta market). The building decor is cool, with lots of old antiques, also with live band playing at night. Overall, very much pleasant and enjoyable stay!
Overpriced for what it is”
It’s a nice guest house that is beautifully decorated with lots of art and has a goldsmith museum inside. However, the room setup on Agoda doesn’t seem to be correct. We booked a loft that was supposed to be spacious and includes a TV. The room we were taken to was tiny, almost no space around the bed and no TV. We mentioned this at reception and were told this is what we booked but were able to prove that our booking confirmation mentioned TV and a more spacious room. We were then given an upgrade to a bigger room with TV after staff spoke to the manager and sent them a photo of our booking confirmation. Staff was very helpful and dealt with all of our issues but we checked out after one night as we would have needed to pay double price to keep the room that we got after complaining. Otherwise, the place was clean and the bed was comfortable but there is much better value for the money elsewhere in the area.
A hidden treasure in Penang island”
I love everything about this hotel, I gave 5 stars without second thoughts. A must try and I guarantee, you don't want to go anywhere else. Love the design, decorations, comfy bed, the Cafe, the Bar on the 2nd floor, the free water and laundry, every corners that you can see. I can't say no more. Definitely I'll tell the whole world about this hotel. Note : the Chinese restaurant on the left, next to the hotel, must try the foods. I think they got their Chef from Heaven's kitchen, on Earth duty.
A little cramped for two people, but gorgeous place. ”
Hotel is an excellent location, has an extremely cool looking bar with live music, and very stylish facilities. Wish our room had been just a little larger, was hard to fit two people and two hiking backpacks. Staff had a bit of a panic with our agoda booking upon arrival, but managed to sort it out without too much stress on our end.
This place is great. It is in great location. Nearby had a lot of place to eat. Nasi Kandar beratur just around the corner. Hong Kee Wan Tan just next to this place. Nearby all gold shop. Kim Haus itself have a great place to hang out. Bar and dining place.
Cool place and good location”
This is my second time to stay at Kim Haus, well i still impress with the design, cafe on the first floor, pub on the second (they have small gym on the second floor court yard), this time got room on the 5th floor, quite a trip using the stairs while lifting 20kg baggage, just to realized that they have bagage lift that located in front of my room. The hotel is great! The location, the design, they have bagage lift, they don’t provide bottled water but they have water dispenser on the 4th floor, the guest can use the washing machine and dryer for free on the 4th & 5th floor. There’s a hairdryer in every room if you ever need it, they have locely common room on the 3rd & 4th floor
If privacy is what you want, this place is it... yet near enough to good food and historical buildings
Good Location & Green Environment”
This hotel is renovated from Old Building, it is good for environment, the old building transform into hotel. Vintage feel and stay in historical road. The aircon is centralised share with a few small room. Could be hot in single room and next door sound can be hear.
I stayed for two nights, the location along campbell street is super accessible around Georgetown. Alot of restaurants, eateries and pubs around. Only thing is the gym equipment provided is relatively old. And the washers and dryers provided stain one of my t shirts. So better not to wash. Think the guesthouse owner should change to new washers as its massively use for their bedsheets washing which they should just reserved for only for guests' use. I didnt have a chance to visit their bar or live band or their restaurant. The atmosphere looks cozy to me tot. Maybe more suitable for family or couples who are lazy to walk. Regards, Chia
Kimhause is an old goldsmith shop turned guesthouse. great vibes. It is like walking into a museum. There was live entertainment during the period that we stayed, but it was not so good...(unlike the other reviews, guess we got unlucky). It was a good thing we were on the highest level, away from the music room. The guesthouse was undergoing renovation and we stayed in one of the newer rooms (deluxe). Was a lovely stay. All facilities worked well.
No longer recommended ”
After staying at Kim Haus for the third time, I am sorry to say that I can no longer recommend the property. Three years ago the property was well managed, clean, provided good food and was an all arourd pleasure. The second stay, we noticed some decline in quality and customer service. Our most recent visit was truly disappointing. The room was dirty, no toilet tissue, cracks in the floor, curtain hanging from the rod, broken lamp, and no AC. After reporting the AC the first morning, we returned to see no change that evening. After reporting it again, we were told the following morning that it could not be fixed. We were moved to another room which had working AC but a constant dripping through the pipe in the bathroom, a badly water damaged wardrobe, a hole in the ceiling and a plywood patch covering another hole hanging by a couple of nails. We were informed that there was no management on site and instructed to send our concerns through our booking site. The hotel offered no remedy other than the room change. Unfortunately, I can no longer recommend a stay at Kim Haus.
Price is high for the value. Room I got has a pipe and constantly has the water sound everytime someone flushes the toilets upstairs. There was no one manning the reception in the early morning and the door was locked, and I was almost late for my flight.
lack of service”
Got a 12m2 room without widows although Agoda confirmed a 20m2 with tererasse. Hotel said it does not exist, so perhaps misleading advert from Agoda... Stayed 3 prepaid nights, room was never cleaned, no change of towels (which were very old and thin after having been washed probably 1000+ times) - the so called gym is a joke
Value for money”
The hotel has a cafe, bar a gym and is decent for the price offered. It's right in the heart of Georgetown and it's safe for solo travelers. You'll have to climb some steps so if you're travelling light, this place is deal.
