      Satisfied ”
      Antique hotel which is renovated from traditional house of perinakan. The room was spacious and well set with queen size bed and digital tv and hanger and dressing table.. Since I was offered a room on 1st floor there was not window but I saw some pic of room with many big antigue windows on 2nd floor.. If you want to see window view It would be better to require the room on 2nd floor. Although they didnt serve breakfast You can have coffee and some cookies in share space. Then you have to note each rooms doesnt have there own bath room inside. So you have to go to outside to get your own bath room. I guess it would be little bit inconvenient. But overall value for money and I had good sleep since around here was so silent.

      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.

      A satisfied place to stay. Good money value”
      Pro - Cheap price for an excellent hotel service. - Beautiful, Very satisfied Chinese hotel design, feels like home, very calm and traditional style. - Great location, at the centre of Georgetown. Walking distance to Roti Canai Transfer Road. - Friendly owners, talkative and very responsive on any problem from customers. - The hotel got bicycles and free to use for customers. - Facilities was great, aircon, water heater and all other things in a well maintained condition. Complete preparation with towel, 2 bottle of mineral water, mosquito repeller, set of teeth brush. Got Astro some more! Cons - Some rooms detached from bathroom. Need to walk at the back of hotel for bathroom. Every room has its own bathroom, no sharing. But still comfortable. - key need to pass to the reception counter when we leave the hotel, feels like unsafe to left any valuable goods in the room. - dusty bathroom

      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..

      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.

      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.

      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.

      This place is really cute. The location is a from the center but if we would go back to Georgetown we'd stay somewhere a bit closer. Staff was helpful but advice on where to eat weren't very clear, so we couldn't find some of the places. Note that the bathroom is private but not ensuite, so it's on the other side of the building.

      It was quite a surprise for me. I couldn't get a hotel due to some marathon in town. But when I arrived here, the hotel reminds me of the time when I was small when my grandmother tucked me in for the night. I will definitely go back to this "house." It is a home, not a hotel. I do feel like home.

      Staff friendliness, interior design, comfort
      My stay at this hotel was with some friends, it was a great time and the hotel is beautifully decorated. It is obvious that someone put some thought into it. While there was no food options at the hotel, the tea/coffee options allowed for biscuits etc. There was a bar fridge with an honesty policy. The staff were very friendly and took care of the hotel well. They were knowledgeable of the area and helped sort things out. Highly recommend this cosy hotel for something different. However airport taxis find it difficult, so maybe make a map or have the hotel phone for the taxi to call.

However, this will be better if the rooms are more sound-proof cause i can hear people talking and walking outside. Besides, the description should mention bathroom is not attached, but we have our personal bathroom outside.

      We really enjoyed our 6,day stay in the hotel. The friendly staff made us feel like staying at friends home. The room was clean n the price was totally worth it. We borrowed the free bicycles every day to hang around in George Town. The location makes it easy to see all the main attractions, as well as trying out all the amazing local food. The only shortcoming would be the unattached bathroom which is few steps outside the room.

      Design and staff
      The hotel was beautiful and although not right within Georgetown, it was just a couple of minutes away. Staff was so friendly and helpful with all my questions. Only downside was the bathroom. You have your own private bathroom allocated to your room but you must walk across the hall to get there. But if you don't mind that then I can definitely recommend this hotel.
