Great Location for Stay in Little India!”
Great place to stay with big groups or even as a solo traveler/ couple. Rooms are clean and bedsheets are clean as well. Towels are also provided and do not have any funky smell. Location is near to Sri Weld Food Court - Great Nasi Lemak, near Little India numerous stalls and near pubs for those who look for drinks at night. Parking might be an issue during the day, but there is a nearby multi-storey parking lot if you drive.

A Heritage Experience”
It was a first time trying out a Heritage place in Penang. And I loved it. Even though my bedroom did not have an ensuite bathroom, I still had total private use to it. Beautifully refurbished - has a nice rustic feel to it, yet comes with modern facilities. A must go-to place if you want to enjoy a heritage experience of Penang. Main downside is that parking is only available after 6pm when the banking district area shuts down for the day as there are only public parking bays outside of this mansion. But it's a good excuse to gallivant around the island and come back later in the evening.

Very nice old boutique hotel but NEVER EVER booked ground floor room”
So.. got myself a good bargain boutique style hotel in penang. these kind of boutique is not cheap so i was kind of happy i found a good rate in agoda. Once you walk in inside the hotel you transport yourself into old style peranakan penang home. Love every bit of the house decoration. The hotel have few lounge area where you can just hang out all day long. They even have pantries and dining table where you can cook your own food. Though kitchen a bit dirty. I dont know whether its the old style kitchen make it look dirty or me who obsesse with cleanliness. Close one eye and i think it should be fine. I got myself a ground floor room. Its huge and what amaze me how clean the bathroom is. There are windows but i shut it most of time as people can just see through the room from the window. Also, yellow light does not help. Just make the room a bit gloomy. Now is the down side. The upper floor consist of just a layer of wood floor so every single time people walk on top, the sound reverberate to lower room. Its very very very LOUD. The sound transmission loss is totally none existant. You can hear whatever the conversation outside and even upstair balcony. Worse still when people still walking and talking at 12 in the morning and you cannot have a good nice sleep. For a sound sleeper I advise you to avoid the lower room. Talk to the hotel employee and they said they cannot do anything to fix the sound disturbance. Even putting up a carpet do not dampen the sound. Location wise.. for a tourist there are plenty of interesting place within walking distance. Esplanade is less than 1km. and every Sunday morning Penang close some of the road and some stall selling handicraft and foods. All in all.. if you want to experience boutique stay, this is a nice place to stay.

old old mansion, just that we are prohibited from making noise from 10pm-8pm, so if you're coming with kids, this is not your place! take note that you need to walk slow, and try not to make noise. other than this, the room was huge and its a old-kinda feeling to stay in a mansion, love it!

A very special stay at such special old architectural treasure. The place has been well-kept, tidy and clean at the same time. An enjoyable stay. Very close to the little India, with plenty of eateries. Also conveniently located in the heart of Georgetown.

Bed bugs not worth it: Heritage house not maintained ”
It is a beautiful mansion for common/shared areas, but rooms are not good. Bed bugs, bed frame dirty and dusty, yellowed sheets, no way to open windows unless you open shutters, dripping air conditioning, no working internet, no breakfast. Staff is really friendly and nice, too bad management isn’t maintaining the house properly.

We love it ❤ ”
Staffs are sincere & polite. There's a kitchen with utensils ready for guests to cook. Beautiful architecture with big room & very clean~ But we don't have a TV in the room, and the downside is, it's not soundproofed. We couldn't sleep well due to kid crying & teenagers laughing and stomping until 1-2am... so it wasnt peaceful. Other than that, we really really love this place.
