A hotel with character”
Nicely decorated hotel, slightly hidden among the old townhouse of George Town. Staff were cheerful and courteous, room was clean. However, request for late check out was met with reply of RM20 per hour...
Nice boutique hotel with enthusiastic staff.”
We stayed 2 nights at this beautiful hotel and were really impressed with the enthusiasm of staff. They've been so hospitable and helpful that make our stay feel like home. Surely will come back again for our next visit.
The Museum hotel is a lovely building, well located in the heart of the heritage quarter. It’s possible to walk to a lot of the sights and is close to the tourist bus for those further away. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only element to be improved was the breakfast as it’s ordered the day before and the reality of the portion size doesn’t always live up to the photo. I would go out for breakfast if returning.
Okay for some”
Friendly helpful staff, room not okay and unable to change due to other bookings, unwilling to upgrade or honour welcome drink with booking sheet. I think this hotel may be okay depending on room allocation but there are lots of others to close from so I wouldn't stay here again. Nice decor in public spaces, but no customers using restaurants. Very poor wifi worst I've encountered in Malaysia.
Great, but not for everyone...”
I love this hotel because it is a furniture museum with lots of period pieces. I also like the hotel itself, but it is not new with ultramodern facilities. This is a niche hotel, and it really depends what you like.
A wonderful stay in a lovely hotel”
I would highly recommend this historic, beautiful hotel to anyone visiting Penang. One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in anywhere. From the moment we arrived, the staff did everything they could to make us feel welcome and special. From what I have seen, they extend this courtesy and hospitality to every guest. The rooms are charming, cleaned to a high standard daily, and the beds are super comfortable (nice pillows!--a big plus). We upgraded to the deluxe room for a special weekend. It is spectacular, and pretty affordable. The hotel is in a quiet location, just a few minutes' walk from the main part of the old town. We opted for the no-breakfast option but did have breakfast here one day. Simple, clean cooking at an affordable price. I really enjoyed my stay here and would certainly choose the Museum Hotel again on my next visit.
A fantastic hotel in Penang”
I stayed 1 night in here and it was fantastic experiences - a beautiful, distinctive hotel that was around 15mins walk to the centre of the heritage zone in Georgetown. You also can rent a moto during ur trip and park at hotel car park. The staff were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed during our stay here. We will return.
Quiant, heritage hotel. Love it! ”
Pro: 1. We booked Quadruple Room. Beds are comfortable. 2. Bathrooms are clean but has a musky smell. 3. Excellent hotel location. 4. Cafe next door serves really good and unique pastries and beverages Cons: 1. Although hotel listed check-in time at 2pm but our room was only ready at 4pm! 2. Our bedroom has 2 functioning units of aircon on the upper floor but we could only turned on 1 unit due to high occupancy rate. Therefore, it was quite warm during the night.
It's a lovely place to stay. Felt quite adventurous since it's an old building. Love the interior decor. We stayed in Deluxe Duplex which resembles an attic. My kids loved it! Melia Benggali bread is just around the corner to have scrumptious breakfast. Oh yes! Superb bathroom.
I felt special and was treated so”
A great venue, reeking of historicity. The staff were consistently helpful and the management were extremely interesting to talk with. And when I asked about hiring a bike, the receptionist declined with a smile and offered the use of a bike for free - they had 5 of them.
Friendly staff and clean place”
I would recommend y'all to stay in at this property as the property is clean and the staff is friendly. The property is with heritage design which make the tenant feeling like the staying in the 80s.
Nice staff, so friendly, so helpfulExcellent hotel location.
nice hotel with strategic place. awesome!
Great place - a bit noisy but to be expected”
Beautiful, traditional hotel, packed to the brim with old memorabilia, very sympathetically kitted out. It has original windows, hence street noise, but a bargain and beautiful room with colonial style marble bathroom. Lovely!
I stay in quad room where provided 2 single beds and 1 queen bed. The bed and bathroom on 1st floor and sofa TV on ground floor. This room type bathroom has 2 shower area & 2 toilet. Even thou quite small space for each shower area, but alright for us asian size people. The receptionist very helpful.
Slightly out of the way down a side street for some peace and quiet, however despite that, very easy to find and not too far from the main attractions. Bus stop just a few minutes walk from the hotel and there are some good restaurant options nearby too. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Lovely historic building. Bed very comfortable, air conditioning worked great in the Malaysian heat. Breakfast options limited but overall just enough to get the day started. Would certainly book here again.
They are very kind. There are bicycles in hotel and can take it.
Good location and nice heritage building. ”
The hotel is nearby to some local famous food stalls or shops. Free parking is available for hotel customers. I was completely attracted by the heritage building once I reached the hotel. The room is very clean and I really enjoyed and relaxed with the facilities provided by the Museum Hotel.
Great value for money. Affordable nice vintage hotel with great location. Walking distance to roti canai transfer road. Friendly staff with welcome drink. Room is old, bed and floor creaks had to be careful everytime. Towel and bathroom aren’t that clean. Got ants and mosquitos in the room. Had to pay rm100 deposit when checked in and must hand over room key whenever leaving the hotel.
Good location with quiet environment. Room and bathroom are clean. Smooth check in and the staff, Sam brought us to the room (good hospitality), thanks Sam! I'll definitely come back when I visit Penang next time.
