      Excellent”

      The place is tucked away (hidden) in the heritage district of Georgetown. You wouldn't even guess that there's a hotel there as it sandwiched between two restaurants and has just a small glassdoor entry. I'll start off by saying that the place is considered a bed and breakfast or boutique hotel, which may be off-putting for some as you do not have some of the amenities you typically have with the big chains. Jern, the gentleman who runs the hotel, made the place feel very wamr and welcoming, and my girlfriend and I felt right at home. He also goes out of his way to explain the heritage area and fun spots to visit/eat. He was able to explain the heritage area in ways that most would not. The room was very spacious, clean, and trendy. You enter the building and the rooms using a swipe card attached to a lanyard and can move around freely throughout the common areas of the building. There are a few negatives to point out. For one, the building is older, and as such, has thinner walls. Not in the sense that you can hear someone's conversation in the surrounding rooms, but enough to hear the water running from the restaurants or guests. Another problem we had was the smell of sulfur coming from the toilet room. Again, the building is old and likely is the plumbing. The toilet room is separate from your shower area and leaving the door closed seemed to make the issue seem minor during our stay. The last, but likely my biggest gripe, is that the closest power outlet to the bed was at the foot of the bed on the opposite wall which made it a bit of a challenge to use our phones while charging. All these issues are very minor and did not take away from the enjoyment we had of being in such a fun area and trendy living situation. Overall, we both very much loved the stay and would highly recommend anyone looking to stay in the historic area of Georgetown to give this place a try.

      different experience”

      location, room facility

      have been to penang many times, but first time staying in a heritage hotel. The location is very good, in the center of georgetown, near to many nice eateries and famous murals. The room is very spacious, neat, and comfortable, facilities are complete, and there is drinking water machine downstair. The only thing that is slightly incovenient for us is that they don't have private carpark. I would still consider to come back to his hotel.

      Warmth in hospitality, big room chic design”

      Service, Size, Location

      It wasn't my first time to Penang, but first staying in GeorgeTown. We chose Mango Tree Place, Hideaway for its location as it is basked in the shophouses stretch along Beach Street (Lebuh Pantai) which is a busy street. This hotel has only 5 units which is good in a way for the quietness and more attention catered to each room's guests. Having said, there is only one front desk staff, her name is Karen and she is the most friendly hotel service person we ever met. The hotel goes by access tap card through the entire place. I think we bumped into Karen’s lunch hour upon arrival that got into our impatience at first, attempting to enter the hotel without success due to the card system. Despite that, it was all in delightfulness upon checking-in. We felt exclusive treatment as Karen prepared maps and information of famous and natively preferred eateries around the hotel vicinity. There was even tourist attraction customized map from the hotel spot. Places like the famous wall paintings, to the clan jetties and various temples. Each time we moved around the hotel, Karen will shower with more tips on where to go, what to eat. Felt the warmth in hospitality. As it a shophouse-style, noises are inevitable from the wooden flooring as it tends to echo through heavy footsteps even from other units of the same floor. There are awkward angles of walls and small stairs in the longish suite room, so those with children or elderly may have to take note of the steps. The rooms are huge so that compromised for the layout as we enjoyed the stay overall. Recommended for couples!

      My husband and I stayed at the mango tree place hideaway in March, 2016 and absolutely loved it. It's a beautiful gem of a hotel hidden away in penang's busy streets. The owner greeted us on arrival and gave us several maps of the area and suggested things to do during our stay. She also drove us to the airport and told us about the history of Penang, which was quite interesting! Our room (orange room) was large, but cozy and felt like home. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel to others.

      Accommodating Guest staff. Unique living environment almost homestay like. Saves time from getting onto the streets itself where the Murals attractions are 500m away ... and you do not need wait for lifts serving 1000 other guests unlike major hotels. Grab or Uber is the way to go in Georgetown Penang. Unfortunately Grab does not has Mango Tree Hideaway as a pre-marked location to choose from despite seemingly very low fare compared with Uber.

      Before arrival we were given clear instructions by Jern as well as upon entry to the hotel and room. Jern is very accommodating and nice. Actual room is really nice and gigantic compared to the pictures in Agoda. Worth every single penny. Hotel is close to georgetown street art, malls, street food and shisha places or bars, massages and 10mins drive (if no jam) from Penang Hill.

      Fantastic spacious room with very nice artsy decorations”

      Arrived at the hotel and was greeted by Wei. She even took the time to recommend the attractions and food in Penang. We were given the free upgrade to the yellow room which was twice as big as the normal ones. A big thumbs up for the customer service. As for the hotel itself, the decor was way too mesmerizing and enchanting. It is evident that the owner spent a large amount of effort in decorating, the whole decor just fits and blends in nicely. There is also a collection of dvd movies and books if you are looking to kill boredom in the hotel room. The room was equipped with a hi-fi system, plenty of power plugs, clean and comfy bed, spacious bathroom with rain shower. It was quite a steal considering the quality of room and customer service. Will definitely be back again for my future stay in Penang.

      A home away from home, clean and safe, tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Kids love it.”

      We stayed in the yellow room with our 4 and 5 yr old. Our arrival was anticipated by Wei who gave us a very Airbnb homestay feel, it felt like home immediately as we walked through the cosy lounge area into our room, without all that checking the system for my booking, boring paperwork and cash deposit upfront. The room is indeed a hideout, that despite the heritage building facade, the room or rather our "house", is equipped with modern contemporary finishings, furnitures and quirky decor. We could really stay in the room all day! Location wise, we love that we're close enough to the art street, walking distance to a variety of local fares, hipster cafes, international cuisines (a nice and cheap Vietnamese fare is just next door!), And drinking places, yet not too crowded and noisy.

      Worth of $ and the spacious room and the design may make you feel totally relax when you're back from the town. Homey feel and the staff really really treat you as a family. The most impressed is the breakfast they served is totally different from others hotel. They served local penang food with kuih, friend meehun, roti telur and etc. the food is nice. Try the Mangoes Cafe which you can spend your little time to relax after the long journey if you're travel from outstation. I will definetely come back again when i come Penang! ❤️❤️❤️

      First hotel I rate for 10 out of 10. Staff, room facilities and interior, location, also the bed are nice. We have a perfect stay here. Will be definitely come back in future. For anyone who are not local Penang people, if you are driving, you have to find a parking at the roadside around the hotel. I park my car at the shop lot opposite the hotel for around 4 hours. There are no signs to show that is not a parking lot ( foreigner will not know that place is a private parking as there are a few car parked there too ) .When I pick up my car a lady come over and hit my car, she was very angry and warn me not to park there. She must be annoyed by tourists who often use her private place to park. Anyway, beware of angry private parking owner and ask the hotel staff for public parking.

      One of a kind experience”

      I enjoyed staying this hotel. The staff is great. Very attentive and friendly. The room was one of a kind and I enjoyed a lot. Pretty spacious and unique. It was very hard to find this place even good location because no mango tree place name on sigh.... just to find "hideaway" on sign. But overall I enjoyed very much and would love to come back again!!

      Excellent Accommodation”

      Location, Room, Excellent service

      Enjoyed the stay at Mango Tree Place. It is located along Lebuh Pantai, "hidden" at a corner. Upon stepping into the hotel, I feel so much at home. Karen, the suitekeeper, was very friendly and helpful. The warm hospitality was impeccable. She provided us some tips on the places to visit, nice food around the area and how to get around the island. They are very flexible with the check in and check out time, provided there is no guests checking in. Now about the rooms - very comfortable, clean and it just feels like a little "hideout". Wifi connection, however, can be better as it was intermittent during our stay. Overall, I would strongly recommend Mango Tree and definitely will return to stay in this place the next time I am in Penang.
