Impeccable service, clean facilities”

Spent 3 nights here. Staffs were helpful and accommodative. We were given an early check-in, and a late check-out, which was extremely helpful and much appreciated! Location is within walking proximity to most major streets, but quiet enough for a restful sleep. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful building, has a pool, incl breakfast ”

Amazing location, the people working there are super friendly and kind! We travelled with a baby and they provided a baby cot at no extra cost. Also, they have a wonderful pool that is well needed after so much walking in the heat. There’s also a restaurant that belongs to the hotel where breakfast is served, and you can eat other meals. It is delicious

Beautiful hotel, convenient location, helpful staff”

My family and I decided to break tradition this time round, and stay at a heritage boutique hotel downtown instead of a modern beach hotel. And I have to say, Yeng Keng Hotel exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The hotel building has been beautifully restored. It is complete with all the modern comforts that one would expect from modern hotels, yet it still maintains the rustic charm of its century-old architecture and decor. Conveniently located along Chulia Street, you could hardly get closer to the centre of all that is bustling and beautiful about historic Georgetown, from food to shopping to sight-seeing. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left, the hotel staff have been helpful and courteous. For any traveller who is apprehensive of staying at a hotel that is over a hundred years old, I strongly encourage you to put aside your preconceptions, and give Yeng Keng Hotel a try - you will not be disappointed!

Amazing Location, Staff and Experience”

What a wonderful place to stay. I'll try to break down my review into a few categories Hotel: The building itself is so full of rustic charm and has such an amazing history There are multiple area's to relax and chill, from the pool, the front courtyard and the upstairs lounge The room is clean and comfortable, air con is nice and cold, there is parking onsite and off street motorcycle parking also available (will look to return with my motorcycle club at some point) Staff: The staff at the hotel are super warm and friendly, always ready to provide assistance or recommendations and are extremely knowledgeable not just about the local area but also about the history of the hotel itself. If I have to say anything, the staff made it feel like it was a home more than a hotel, Kudos to them. Location: The location is great, quite central and strategic, loads of things within easy walking distance, from sight seeing, museums and of course the local food and night life. I will be back again!

Historic Hotel in the heart of Georgetown ”

Beautiful architectural features in this classy yet unpretentious, historic hotel in the heart of George Town. We stayed in a garden room - small but perfectly appointed. Staff were very helpful and accommodating re. A change of itinerary. Having the small courtyard pool to cool off in was a welcome bonus after a days sightseeing.
