      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.

      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.

      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.
