The accommodation and facilities were first class. Breakfast was served promptly and satisfied our needs. The staff were most attentive.

With all the good food around at night and the great wine shop just downstairs, where else should 1 stay?! The only concern that I will have is the noise of traffic at night. But other than that it is will worth it to stay there.

    The hotel is furnished with beautiful, classy modern design. Great that they used some sort of sound proof window which filters out much of the noise from the busy streets. We had an awesome hospitality with Rynald whom introduced us the best makans around the town to fest, places to go, shopping malls. Definitely don't mind staying again next time.

    Boutique hotel at a very good location with friendly staff”

    A niche and quaint boutique hotel with just 8 rooms that is conveniently located where food and pubs are aplenty! No worries on getting hungry n thirsty! The hotel comes with a big pantry and a long table that one can enjoy drinks and food with friends. And it has a big fridge which you can store your drinks and food. Shafiq, the front desk cum manager com many other things is sp helpful and friendly! He made our stay really enjoyable and comfortable. Downside is that they should check the coffee machine often as it has ants. Housekeeping wasnt as clean as i expected as i still see hairs and dust in the room and dirt in the bathroom. Hopefully next time when I visit, they will improve the cleanliness of the room. Overall I will still recommend this hotel.

    A home away from home”

    Tien Hotel was really good find for me. I had wanted to stay near the good food and old areas in Penang and this was such a place. On top of that, the hotel itself was still new and the staff were super friendly. The hotel itself was converted from an old building into its current self. Once you step in, it feels really homely and cosy. The hotel cannot accommodate a lot of tenants so it is a good thing, you will still get your privacy. What I love about the hotel is that it has a kitchen area which you can sit and work or surf the internet, or you can go up to the small pool area, where there is a bar or you can also choose to go all the way up to the very top, where you get a 360 view of Penang. One of the nights, I had bought a bottle of wine and went up to the kitchen area to drink in comfort. It really felt like my own house. Staff were really friendly and housekeeping was really prompt and fast. Location wise, you are at the heart of everything. Good food is all around.

    I was in love with the room. Their staff was attentive and helpful especially Mr Rynald who assist and shows us around from the very first step to the premise. The only minus point is parking lot. I find it difficult as the premise is situated in front of the busiest road and during the night to find the parking lot was a bit challenging. Nevertheless will be my first choice and cant wait to try out their new suite when it is available soon.

    Great place to stay”

    The hotel is quite small with only 8 rooms which is very nice. The staff is super friendly, helpful and tries everything to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast is good, rather focused on Asian taste. But you can store your own stuff in the fridge. The rooftop pool is small but enough for a dip. The rooms are small but ok. The onyl 2 downsides were that the bathroom is open within the room and there is no door between the toilet and the room itself. Also the doorbell rang a couple of time during the nights very loud. Overall, I can clearly recommend the place.

    Hotel is located at the heart of Georgetown, above a store that sells nice char siew and chicken. upon reaching the hotel, was greeted by friendly staff (Raj) and he handed me a list of restaurant to go in Georgetown. Was also told by the staff that hotel is currently under renovation which will be completed in March. hotel was made to make you feel like home, so would gladly stay at there again.

    Tien Hotel is by far the best place I have ever stayed at! Everything about it made it such a great experience. The room well designed and super clean, the staff were exceptional, the location was perfect and the hotel had everything you would want on a holiday (pool and little communal kitchen for breaky). I would definitely say it is value for money and I hope to go back to Georgetown to stay at this hotel again.
