              My friend and I had a wonderful stay in Magpie Heritage - Hideway. This place is so beautiful and clean. The room is so spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff, Jern is super helpful and friendly. Keep on asking on how is our stay and our trip around Penang. We only stay there for 1 night, which we hope that we can stay longer. This place is highly recommended.

              Boutique Residence next to “walking street” in the heratage area”
              Location: On the south east corner of everything you want to do. 5 minutes from the local Mall & supermarket. Staff : Jern is your man, for EVERYTHING! Knowledgeable, helpful and likeminded traveler. Always available on WhatsApp for advice or requests. Breakfast: I’m really really glad they don’t serve breakfast, just walk to Urban Daybreak, it’s wonderful and the menu has choices for all appetites. Overall: Under new management for 3 months, and you can tell. The place has 5 rooms and they cater to couples or small quiet families. The rooms are decorated to a good standard and have AC that works well. The front door and rooms all have electronic locks for added peace of mind. We had a separate shower (excellent and with basic toiletries) and WC. They clean daily, and well, and not too early either! The beds are in good order and typically firm for the region, but not solid like some. The street is pretty quiet and the main road is 75m away so Grabs are quick.

              Even it is located in the heart of Georgetown, but the room is quite and cosy, plus it is spacious. We love the room deco concept and it gave us a good sleep as well as enjoy the time we spent. Check in was fast and the staff were very friendly and helpful. If someone plan to find a place which is convenient and retreat from busy life, Mango Tree Place is a good choice.

              The host are friendly and helpful, everything in the room was good, warm lighting and spacious room. Location nearby most of the attraction, easy to get Grab as well. China House Cafe, Urban Daybreak all within walking distance. If you were hungry at night, you may walk about 5mins to a local kuay teow soup nearby, they sell delicious kuey teow there. Everything goes well, will definitely come again in next visit. (Thanks Jern!)

              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.

              Very good”
              Firstly, this is not a "hotel" in the pure sense. It's more of a BnB - so come with this expectation. The location is good, but it's not in the centre of the zone - just slightly out of it. This has it's own pro's and con's. A short walk to all of the action, but a good excuse to walk the outer to the inner of the zone. It was quite easy to fine with Grab never having an issue to get to us. I also guess that it's just outside of the zone, Grab arrived within a few minutes each time. There is also good access to 2 western style malls nearby - if you need to pick up some electrical items or use services. The rooms are large with a comfortable bed and the usual amenities you would expect - safe, refrigerator, etc. The service from the staff is very homely. It's not like a polished hotel (but as I said don't expect a hotel in this case) but it is very attentive and personal with local personal knowledge. It felt more like you were staying at a friend's home.

              Big space for just two of us. The first time staying in a hotel which got TV sets and DVD. Comfortable and clean bed. Very big space in the toilet with full facilities. The living room is comfortable with sofa and warm yellow lighting. There is access card for entering into the hotel main door and our own room, so it is very safe. Ceiling decorated with wooden block, very nice!! Definitely will recommend friends to have a good stay!!! Fully recommended!!! You Will not dissapointed. The Cons is cannot find the location by Grab so it is quite difficult to locate the place.

              Well, almost hidden - if you blinked on the way past you'd miss it; very well kept converted shophouse with quirky room layout but very clean and quiet with very comfortable bed and friendly staff. My only suggestions would be to improve the somewhat slow and unsteady wifi, and provide brighter lighting in the bathroom.

              Mango Tree Place Hideaway is a privately owned, small motel with only 5 rooms in total. Pros: 1) Lots of electrical outlets provided in the room. Cons: 1) Very narrow old single shophouse turned into a motel. Width of the whole motel in less than 4 meter wide. Each room configuration is very narrow & long. 2) Although situated in heart of Georgetown, Mango Tree is located on a lonely industrial street. Some shops are open in the morning, however at night the area gets quite eery, with only 2 very slow & quiet restaurants open nearby. 3) Since there is no central air conditioning, the room is hot & humid everytime we come back. We had to adjust the timer of aircon to turn on at 5 pm everyday. 4) The room has no proper window. There is zero air circulation. Even though the motel is only 4 years old, the room smells moldy & rusty. You can feel mold particles in the air. We woke up every morning sneezing. 5) They also have trouble with electrical cables in the motel. When we checked in, 4 lights in the room were broken. We asked them to be replaced. However one light was still flickering even though the bulb had been changed. The white neon light in the toilet also made a constant pitch sound when turned on. I suggest that you find another place to stay. There are many choices available in Georgetown. Don't be fooled by the attractive room design on photo & the reviews which are all very old posts.

              We stayed here for one night and wished that we had stayed for more. I lost my phone and the person at reception dropped everything for me and was able to chase it up. I can not thank her enough for her kindness. The only downside is that we booked for one night and not any more.

              It is a quaint place and the triple room is great as there is a living room where pple can gather once the bed is kept. However, it does get a little warm within the building and in the main bedroom which has to do with ventilation.

              I was there for business and chose it to be near the art street. Conveniently located, though uber nor grab car could locate the place. The only thing is the steps going upstairs are steep and tiny and difficult with luggage , although the care taker in the morning Mr. Teoh helped me with bags, I was terrified he would fall and hurt himself. A bit of a OHS issue. I found the room very warm, for some reason the air conditioner was not strong enough to where my bed was located. But overall a cute little unique place

              This property is about equidistant to the center of George Town and Komtar. It is a converted shophouse, surrounded by other active shophouses. The room is tastefully decorated, casually comfortable and with all of the amenities one would expect in a room in this category. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful and the room was serviced daily. This property feels more like a homestay than a hotel proper, without any intrusion on privacy.

              Firstly i would like to thanks Wei and Uncle for being a great host. Even before we travel there, they email me to arrange for a airport transfer. When we reached, we were host by Wei and she welcome us with lots of information about the place we stay and provided us with all the handy maps with all the places of interest and where are the great foods in Penang. Location have a quiet surrounding, just walking distance (10 to 15mins) to some of the great food and beautiful wall arts, its near to the Chew Jetty too. I will remember the hawker stall serving the best kuey teow soup just behind the hotel (only ipen at late night) overall a fantastic stay for me, my wife and my little girl. Taxi is cheap just to move around. Just a litte suggestion, maybe they could rent out some bicycles for the guest as it be more easy to move around freely. I hope we will be back again soon. Well wishes to Wei and great health to Uncle. Job well done.

              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.
