Really spiced up our day”

Our first time here, we booked a family loft and a family room. When we first entered the lobby for check-in - we already fell in love with the ambience and concept. Everything was just instagramable . They have coway water filter at their lobby very convenient indeed. Staffs were friendly during check-in and check out. The loft room was just nice. My family really loved it. Good size, s really clean and comfortable. The water pressure was good. In fact, everything was perfect. Will repeat again next time.

It was a very pleasant stay with Spices Hotel. The house itself was an very old building but well maintained and in good hygience. Location is in the town centre in George town and easily accessible by walk or by Grab. There is a temple next to the house and hence the prayer sound may disturb your sleep. My family and i are ok with that and we are not very bothered, but very depends what type of sleepers are you. Anyway, with the very reasonable cost, warm welcome and gesture by the staff and clean and warm accomodation. I recommend it much.

A Beautiful, Hidden Gem”

Right in the heart of Georgetown's heritage zone, Spices Hotel is a stone's throwaway to all a tourist want to see: murals and beautiful architecture. Yes, the location is absolutely wonderful! The hotel itself is cosy; it feels more like lodging in someone's home that's tastefully decorated. Sit around the living spaces to soak up the Moorish atmosphere! The room that I booked, Clove, has high ceilings and doesn't feel cramped, albeit the small floor space. The bed is very comfortable and the room was made when we were out, very attentive yet unobtrusive service. If you're looking for a beautiful place to stay in the heritage zone with an affordable price, this is it. I will definitely return when I am able to!

The location itself is convenient because it's near various artwork that George Town is known for. It's approximately 5-10 minutes walk from the Jetties. Even the people we encountered outside the hotel were very friendly and helpful.

Spacious and quiet stay in the middle of Georgetown ”

This hotel is located on a quieter street and it’s nice and peaceful. Some commented on the prayers coming from a nearby mosque. While it’s audible, it didn’t bother Malaysians like us who are used to it. We got a 3 bedder and was pleasantly surprised it came with 1 king bed and 1 single on the upper floor and 1 single with a pull out bed on the lower floor. While it’s possible to eat out after the lockdown, we prefer to get take out from hawker stalls when it gets too crowded. The room is spacious enough for us to enjoy our meal in peace. The only thing I thought the room should have would be a small fridge or minibar. With Penang weather, it would really help to have a place to store cold drinks
