                The hotel itself is an attraction! Cute little historic building with tons of charm. We used it as a base to explore the whole of George Town. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nice to laze by the pool after doing our 20 000 steps for the day!

                It's our first time in Yeng Keng. It was a great stay for us although a little pricey for a family room (3 pax). Staffs were friendly and helpful. Our room came with breakfast - simple local selection. We booked a car to move around in Penang and there were parking lots at all times for us which is great as parking lots are limited in Penang city. Hotel is also within walking distance to popular eating places. Can try if you want to stay in a hotel with a heritage.

                This hotel is great find. location great. it's very close to lots of food choices including hawker stands. there are two rapid bus stops close by for connecting through Komtar or straight to other great locations. the pool is lovely very clean and so very refreshing. the garden view room was perfect. bed the usual hard mattress. the aircon worked a treat and the ceiling fan a surprise addition that helps too. we're really glad we made the choice to stay here and would happily recommend.

                really feel like at home!”
                My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the hotel. Location: it is very well located in the heritage town. For the food lovers, it is within close walking distance to a few delicious local food places eg Wai Kei cafe (char siew and roast duck), Hon Kei (pig innards and Loh Bak) and also the hawker stalls at Chulia and Kimberly Street. Comfort: very comfortable room, just nice for 2 of us. Room is clean too. It also provides international channels eg HBO, CNN. Provides bath and hair shampoo. More outstandingly is the design of the room which is very nostalgic. Even the wardrobe reminds me of the good old woody furniture. Service: staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We went to the hotel earlier before 3pm and the room was not ready. Instead of telling us plainly that room is not ready, staff asked us whether we already had our lunch. If not, we can walk around to explore food and be back in about 2hrs. We were recommended to Wai Kei cafe for char siew and roast duck. On the last day, without making the request for late check out upfront, we were offered a late check out at 1pm Food: breakfast is good. They provide small packet of nasi lemak, roti canai and many nyonya kuehs. On the whole, we were very pleased with the stay and we will definitely opt for Yeng Keng again for our next trip.

                A terrific spot to get to know Georgetown, back at the hotel after work you can set out to explore the many different faces of the heritage site. Always something new. The hotel is comfortable, the staff are so, so friendly and helpful. If you are very reliant on WiFi for work, the connection speeds are a bit slow. That said, the comfortable environment is distinctive and memorable.
