Nice homestay experience. A hidden gem in town - one gets the feel of living in an actual Peranakan house. And the staff were very friendly. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants an authentic heritage experience in Penang

Lovely place”
Clean and comfy bed. Bathroom was not a shared one and very clean. A good stay. Just that I dont like the hotel policy that every guest has to leave room key at the reception when we went out. Didnt feel safe eps when the hotel said it is at your own risk.

Excellent location, rustic hotel”
This lovely rustic hotel is located within walking distance to many great food places like Chowrasta Market, Green house, Swatow Lane Ice Kachang, Hassan Briyani and many more. La Belle bike rentals are within walking distance too. The hotel is housed within 3 old heritage shop house, so do not expect shiny bright modern facilities. Think rustic, think character. Rooms are clean, sheets are clean. Air conditioner well maintained without musky smells. Staff are friendly. There is a little pantry where complimentary coffee, tea, warm/hot water and biscuits available to the hotel guests. One minus is there are no attached toilet to each room. Every room has a locked toilet assigned to it and can only be used by the guest of the room. You'll have to come out of the room and to the back of the house. That's the nature of a hotel in heritage house. Minor issue to me.

Beautiful place. Pillow smells bad. Mouldy room smell. ”
This place has so much potential and it’s a beautiful heritage building. Staff attended to us professionally. Only down side was the room smells mouldy and the pillow was utterly smelly as if haven’t been change for ages. The sheets didn’t feel clean and crisp. The room just felt like needed mopping or disinfect.

gorgeous hotel”
Such a beautiful hotel! Felt, at times, we were staying in a heritage museum which has been passionately put together. Reasonable close to lots of Georgetown sites and entertainment (10-20 minutes walk). Slight odd bathroom access, but not a deal breaker. Also in a residential side street which made us question our choice but once we walked in, we were absolutely stunned. If you want a well crafted, character place to stay, this is the one!

Excellent Property with Poor Service”
The property is recently renovated shophouse with good Facilties, the only trouble is that there’s no service at all. Even after repeated requests we couldn’t get our sheets changed, room cleaned. To be true, you are pretty much on your own. P.S. - the washroom is not attached to the ‘so called superior suite’ and there’s a walk to the washroom.

BEST FOR SHORT STAY”
i have 1 night stay in this house. What i can generally , i have a pleasant stay.. i love the concept of this hotel, Old Chinese house concept. I can feel the good feng-shui. Comparing between the price & the concept, i would say it is VALUE FOR MONEY. Good : - Located at city centre - very calm surrounding , didn't have noise pollution even at the city centre - Friendly & helpful staff Things that can improve : - Not sound-proof. I stayed at ground floor & we can hear to the walking sound from upper floot - Toilet is a bit smelly though All in , i would give 4 star for my stay & i recommended everyone to stay here..

Definitely recommend! ”
We stayed for almost a month in this beautiful terrace house... And it definitely felt like we were living in another time. It is beautifully decorated and it has a bit of a homey feeling. It is very close from the heritage area and we walked around it every day. I would recommend this place and I would like to say thank you to all the people that worked there that guide gave us all their local knowledge to enjoy this city. Very happy with this hotel.

Peranakan Heritage House”
Beautifully decorated heritage house about 4 minutes walk from Jalan Penang. Original features and artifacts. And each room is named after one of the heritage streets eg Armenian Street. The bathrooms are separate but one for each room. Friendly staff. You feel like you are in a neighborhood.

Cheap and traditional”
If you are looking for traditional old style accomodation this is the place. However jalan kelantan is at the edge of George town but still walking distance to muntri street. Tv was no clear. Unable to see anything. The staff said they are in progress to install cable TV. .true or not I am not sure. You will get your own room and out side toilet. For example I got Armenian st room thus I ll get my own toilet which will be written Armenian st on the door. You will be give 1 key for room and another for toilet..it is not luxurious but if you are looking for cheap and traditional. .this is the place..

Beautiful old lanehouse in an ideal location”
For us it's a good location, not in the busy touristy part of Georgetown. It's a 10 minute walk to the more exciting areas but without the plethora of motorbikes and cars, so it's quiet here for a good night's sleep. The rooms are clean, you have a private bathroom, and the staff are helpful, friendly, and makes this place a very nice stay. We enjoyed our 4 days here. I would come back and live here again the next time I visit Georgetown.

Heritage ”
Stay was average, there's a day that they're carrying some renovation. toilets are clean, clean room, comfy beds and plushy pillows, but the room lighting was rather bit dim for ladies who wants to have some beauty enhancement. We just take grab car everywhere, rather more convenient than driving around using own cars to save some hassle to look for parking and pay for parking charges. Free flow of drinking water on the ground level. There's a few spots within the premise that is great for photo-ops.
