Heritage hotel in historical centre”
Nice hotel in historical style. Very friendly staff and very clean. Our room was somewhat small and had 2 separate beds. Nice continental breakfast including a small dish from the opposite Chinese restaurant
Nice friendly hotel”
The hotel and nice features and the room was nice also. The main lady is very helpful. The hotel is in little India but it is easy enough to walk or get a grab to get chinese food.
Staff really make this a top place to stay in Penang. Lively neighborhood. Convenient location. Smart renovation of an old medicine hall.
A fantastic stay in Georgetown”
Beautifully restored heritage building. Our room (airwell room) was bright and quiet and the breakfast was delicious. The location was ideal for sightseeing and we enjoyed trying out some of the many lively cafes and restaurants very near by. All the staff at Ren i Tang is friendly but we found Uma particularly attentive and kind and she gave us very good advice about what to see and do in Georgetown. This is definitely one of the best places to stay and one we will definitely stay again.
Good location and nice place”
Nice staff, nice breakfast. A pleasant stay.
Penang short stay”
The Ren I Tang is ideally situated for exploring Georgetown, located as it is in the heart of the World Heritage area, in Little India. It is an old Chinese medicine hall and the original character is retained, complete with pulleys and baskets for hauling goods up and down through the building. The rooms are spacious, if quite basic, and they are clean and well-maintained, and are equipped with both fans and air-con. One disadvantage for those who have difficulty with stairs is that there is no lift and the stairs are narrow and steep. The breakfast is simple but caters for both Western and Asian tastes. The Bistro has quite a good 'fusion' menu. The staff were helpful and friendly. Almost everything you might want to visit in Georgetown is within walking distance.
Budget prices for a good reason”
The room we had was spacious - but no refrigerator. The free breakfast was good, but first started at 8:30am.... too late for early risers. The 2 long sets of stairs were dangerously steep and narrow to get to the rooms. When they are wet from cleaning, it’s a major hazard. The hotel seemed closed most of the time. The front doors stayed closed until 11am or so, and all day in Tuesday. There was not a safe in the room. No “do not disturb” sign” there either.
Quant treasure in the middle of it all!”
Booked here on recommendation from a friend and it's a wonderful place to stay! It's right in the middle of the UNESCO world heritage area, and a perfect base to explore Penang. The rooms were very nice and tastefully remodeled. The staff were also all very nice, as were the owners who made every effort to take care of the guests.
The Airwell room was amazing. A different view from the 4 sides of the room. Building has much history yet the place has been refurbished to modern standards.
Beautiful at every corner. You must take of your shoes and climb the stairs to enter guest hotel area. They had the unique way to bring up and down your luggage. The family room was very big, it was consist of 2 bedroom with bathroom at the center. Hotel's bistro is at downstairs. A lot of indian food nearby, hence it located at little india area. The staff was helpfull.
I LOVE THIS PLACE”
This is a gem. I would deff stay here again and again.
definitely will stay again”
I stayed for 3 days in room 12. Ren i tang located in Little India and it near to everywhere. The staffs are very friendly, helpful, and speak English well. The room is nice with wood elements, however it a bit noisy when people walk around your room (since the floor from wood) and the noise from outside Hotel. For breakfast, you will get a simple breakfast but the staff will offer you a food beside the cereal and bread on the table. Overall it is a pleasure to stay here ! definitely will stay again here when I go back to Penang :)
Great hotel in the hub of the Heritage area”
We loved the location of the Ren I Tang and the building itself which is a renovated Chinese medicine wharehouse. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The hotel bistro serves excellent food but there are many very cheap Indian and Chinese street stalls and restaurants surrounding the hotel. The hotel is on a crossroads deep within the heritage centre. There is a hive of activity and traffic from 09:00 ish to 10:00 ish, great for people watching and you soon get used to milling around the traffic! The stairs are steep, especially up to the 2nd floor, but bags are hoisted up on a pulley system to avoid having to negotiate the stairs with heavy bags. So be mindful if you cannot climb stairs, this hotel may not be the best for you. Another point is the room walls are paper thin, so you can hear folk in the rooms around you but this was not a problem for us as no one made noise after 11ish anyway. Thank you Ren I Tang, we had a fab time with you.
Clean room, attentive staff, but a little noisy due to its location
Quaint historical cozy hotel in a convenient location with helpful, friendly staff & good coffee.”
A bit noisy due to location in Little India. And not too private as access to hotel is through bistro area.
Too big a room for one :-) !”
Good location with lots of nice eatery around. Enjoyed the ambience as well as the hotel.
Authentic ambience, attention to detail, and sincerely caring management. 查看全文”
Staff are helpful and sincere. Area is very convenient and many good food around. Price is reasonable and suitable for friends / young couple (Have to walk stairs to room in a historical building. FUN experience!)
I had an incredible stay at Ren I Tang. As a woman in her early 30s who travels alone often, I frequently have to deal with rude comments from hotel staff about why I am on my own, but there was none of that here. The entire staff was lovely and so welcoming. The location is perfect for exploring George Town on foot and is very close to the bus terminal at Weld Quay, providing for easy access to the bus network that covers the island. Other than going to and from the airport, I didn't have to take any taxis during my stay thanks to the excellent location. My room at the inn was beautifully decorated in a classic style that felt both modern and traditional. It was extremely clean - probably the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at. The bed was very comfortable. I couldn't have asked for more from my stay. I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Penang!
Nice heritage boutique hotel..but..”
Pros: - Nice cozy rooms, very well maintained and extremely clean! - Comfy bed, great shower - Attentive and friendly staff - Loved the local food breakfast Cons: - Mosquitoes (had at least 15 stings on both legs near reception area during check out) Had to see doctor afterwards. Do wear repellent at all times to avoid mosquito bites. - Street noise (if you are a light sleeper, choose the loft rooms or stairwell rooms) Overall a nice experience.
