Excellent stay
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

Great to stay in Georgetown!
I just sent one night here because of limited time, but I will stay longer in next time in Ke-lan-tan house. The staff I met on 28th May are very friendly, warm hospitable and helpful in giving much information for my sightseeing in Georgetown. It is really recommended to stay.

An oasis
We recently spent a few delightful nights at Kelatan House and loved it. The staff we met, Mr Chew, Yap and Kevin were great. They gave us a lot of information and a lot of laughs. The atmosphere is something special as the house has been sensitively restored. It is very quiet and calm which is perfect after a day seeing all the wonders of Penang.

Cosy with a heritage touch
We didn't wana get out of this place after checking in. A well-appointed inn with a touch of heritage. We didn't mind the detached bathroom because it gives a true experience staying in a heritage house. You still get your own bathroom all for yourself except it is outside the room. The only drawback of our stay is the noise by the barking dog of the opposite house affecting our sleep. Do not miss this hidden gem, you will not be disappointed!

Unique Interior Design
Superb decoration
Overall is fine. Staff is pleasant. Complimentary tea, coffee, refreshment. Rent bike at free of charge. Free parking lot at night at first come first serve. Superior Suite is big and clean with detached private bathroom. However, internet is unstable, sometimes is fast sometimes can't even use. And both of us can't sleep well at night due to the water sound from the decor fountain as we stay downstairs. Hope management will improve it soon.
