    We have stayed at The Southere Boutique Hotel 3 times so far, and we will continue to return as it is one of the loveliest places we have stayed in. The building is beautiful, the rooms are super clean and comfortable. The best part is the lovely staff, that are always welcoming, accomodating and helpful. Thank you very much 🙏🏻

    Superlight & clean room and bsthroom. The location was great and straff very friendly and helpful. I felt safe there because of proper locks on the door. Good value for the money, though I stayed there during Chinese New Year so prices went up. Would be nice with a fridge in the room. I would definitely go back :)

    Location is really nice. Near delicious food and dessert (rollney). Also near great Thai massage and blue mansion. Next to 24hr minimarket. Staff really helpful, minimalist room but enough. Need improve for the pillow maybe. Free flow hot and cold water. Small inconvinience in my room, theres little water seepage at the floor near table. At roof garden we can see komtar building.

    Pleasant but a little basic for the price”

    Cosy and clean boutique hotel and well located. Attentive staff. Comfortable and functional room. Nicely decorated. The only reason i would not recommend this place is that for the price paid, was expecting more amenities like at least a room service/breakfast area (even if basic and simple toast), or some bar/drinks service. Toiletries was also fairly basic. It may be appealing to some but i would explore elsewhere in future.

    As this hotel is converted from a commercial shoplot, one side of my room is a locked wood window and door, another side is room door, the only bad thing is soundproof, I can easily hear people walking and talking on walkway outside my room, also the wood window and door seems flimsy and can be opened easily. Other than these it’s a nice place, very nice to walk around for sight seeing and food hunting.

Great food hall just on the main road by the hotel also their recommendation. Only gripe, WiFi didn't work in the room, it's brilliant in reception and just outside. Would def stay there again.

    The hotel was nicely decorated. I loved the furnishing. Parking was available but on daily basis, so please seek more info from the info counter. Room was small but cozy. Only downfall is there is no lift, so travelers with huge luggage will find it hard to go up the narrow staircase. The stay was decent and i will definitely return in the future.

    Upon our checked in to the room, we were a little disappointed, we paid additional for the balcony and it happened that the balcony was just the corridor outside on the ground floor, my wife felt and I were feeling rather unsecured as the door to the "so called" balcony was at the outside where people can just break in to our room.

    Great location, stone throw away to many attractions ”

    The Southern Boutique Hotel is new, bright & clean in a refurbished vintage building. Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Although the room is small, it’s very cozy and sufficient enough for a good rest. Sound proof is not strong, thus it might get abit noisy at times. There’s no kettle in the room but they do have water dispenser at the lobby. Enjoyed the white coffee and peach tea from the coffee machine. There’s a nice tokyo yakitori nearby which serves nice yakitori but they take quite some time to cook your food. Tai Tong restaurant is just about 10min walk away, they serve good dim sums and roasted chicken! Overall, everything is good except for the WiFi connection which becomes very slow and unstable from evening onwards. Would recommend future visitors to check with the hotel staff and I do hope that they improve on this because we forgot to feedback to them.

    Overall is ok but could have been more clean”

    The room size is ok and the concept and design of the room is great but the towel look not so clean. There were stain on our white towel and it made us wonder about the hygiene. Also when we first get in the room there was strong smell of the chlorine which I think was from the bathroom. Blanket was a bit too small so if you love to toss and turn a lot in the middle of the night, there will be a problem who gets the blanket! Staff was friendly :) and we love that they have water tank which we can refill our water both hot and cold

    Fantastic room but the night staff was awful!”

    Love everything about it except the bathroom. It looks fantastic in pictures but the curtain in the bathroom was not very practical. With the open layout, the toilet gets wet all the time. Frost glass would have worked better. The staff was wonderful when we checked in during the day. But the night staff was terrible. She is seldom in the reception, and when she is, she treated the couch in the lobby like her own living room, invited friends over to hang out... and was sitting in the open area with her shoes off and foot on the sofa! As this was a converted heritage building, the stairs was very steep and narrow. So beware if you are travelling with a big luggage.

    We stayed for 2 nights. As others have said, the place is really small - but that wasn’t a problem. The WiFi was in and off the whole time we were there and we never had hot water in the shower. There are no drawers or shelves so all our stuff was on the floor. Otherwise the staff were nice and the location is great.

    Will Return”

    Basic accommodation but comfortable, clean and attractive. It suited me perfectly and I look forward to returning next time I'm in Penang. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There was a drinks counter in the corridor where I could make my early morning cup of tea and a bedtime drink. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and it is in a very interesting part of George Town. My only peeve was the shower kept giving me cold water - I didn't work out how to get the hot water to come out the tap initially - I think a little demonstration when you are shown to your room would be a good idea for idiots like me! A few more channels on the TV would be nice.
