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
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.
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.
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.
We were a little concerned about being somewhere without a pool with two small children. The staff are so nice and the cafe is such a great place to hang out... we really couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks to everyone at Ren i Tang. I'm sure we'll be back.
A classic heritage hotel”
A rather unique location in yet another heritage spot in Georgetown. Lovely, cosy and nice bed. Stairs can be kind of tricky and not friendly for elders and kids. Tang Bistro was not bad and convenient. Highly commendable.
You make me wanna come back for more”
It was a great stay for me and my husband. The owner Karen was so great. Honest, warm and really passionate about what she is doing. The food in the bistro is great too. Not too pricey. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Only thing is the scary stairs. *NOt COMPLAINING* But they were so smart to have a great way of having the luggages transported up the various floors. Not gonna reveal it here, check it out when you get there! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and I would definitely be back for more!
Beautifully Restored building”
Excellent stay, the building is beautifully restored. Friendly Staff and very helpful. Nice to hangout at the courtyard. Rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. Love the wooden tub in the bathroom.
Want to Stay Again & Again”
Staff is very kind and friendly, and of course, very professional. You can ask the staff any advice on your trip plan. The hotel is clean and has a nice atmosphere. Every tourist spot is in walking distance. Excellent stay is guaranteed if you decide to stay here. For the elderly, only one consideration is needed; the hotel is ex-warehouse and stairs are a little steep.
Plesant, Inspiring and definitely will come back!”
A weekend in Penang made special with my stay at Ren I Tang. Reading it on Agoda already created much anticipation about how beautiful this restored heritage property is but staying there made it all more amazing, especially with the amazing staff who are ready to make the stay even more magical. The place is definitely world class, as it serves to both preserve the heritage and reputation of Penang, as a holiday destination of choice. I will definitely come back for more stays here. To the owners and staff, keep up you good work. I am truly inspired by your passion!
THE AIRWELL ROOM”
Spent our night in the airwell room on a separate stay,LOVED IT TO BITS. The room is further back from the main road, and on the topmost floor so it was quiet and very private. Steps to the upper floors are steep and creeky but that's just part of the charm and we totally lap it up.Will return!
Will Definitely Return!”
Our stay in Ren I Tang was a very memorable and enjoyable one. The staff were very friendly and accommodating of our 8 month old baby and entourage of 7 adults. The rooms were beautiful, the location was convenient, the cafe serves good food. Our only grub was for the amount we paid, one would expect some basic amenities like toothbrushes and shavers to be provided as well. But, we'll return definitely!
Beautifully restored building with a real heart”
We would definitely go back again - there are so many good points I'm not sure there's enough space to list them here. The bed and pillows were excellent and gave us a good night's sleep - yes, despite the footsteps and occasional creaking floors (as expected in all heritage homes)! We also loved the layout of the room, the walking distance to all major sights in George Town as well as the great job the team did in restoring this building. Kudos also to Karen who represented the front desk (and Penang) very well. This is a genuinely great place to get to know George Town...
Good location and nice place”
Nice staff, nice breakfast. A pleasant stay.
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.
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.
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.
