Stayed in two standard rooms (travelling with friends) located adjacent to reception. Very clean. No noise. Heritage building. Great facilities. Excellent location for hawkers, town shopping etc. Fairly small but inviting pool for a refreshing dip. Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Any enquiry followed up and a solution/answer found. Two couples and all of us would stay there again... More

Well located just minutes away from the Georgetown UNESCO heritage site, cafes, eateries, museums, and even the famous Penang Road. The hotel itself is a very well preserved and maintained with detailed furnishing. Top notch and helpful service by the staff. Yeng Keng cafe serves one of the nicest prawn noodle ever. We were sad to find out that prawn... More

This lovely boutique hotel on a busy Georgetown street was a lovely surprise. It's in a noisy area but was peaceful and relaxing. Our room wasn't big but it was perfectly big enough and very pleasant. Food was good and the pool was a pleasant place to relax.

Very good hotel. Close to public transport and some of Penang's more popular attractions. Lots of food choices, cafes and markets, all within easy walking distance. Bus route runs past the hotel. The hotel itself is well presented, friendly staff were more than helpful with anything that we needed. Breakfast was included in our stay and was more than satisfactory... More

Nice hotel. The room was good and clean, One small issue was there seemed to be a small stain on the quilt cover. Overall, the friendly and helpful staff made the stay a pleasant one. Leo, the front desk staff, deserves special mention for this. Great job, Leo!

Hotel is no frills, but beautifully decorated and is relaxing. Old Colonial style with various trinkets in the room like old flasks, lamps etc. Centrally located within a 10 minute walk of most of the tourist attractions. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We were given a late check out until 1430 no problem. Bar/Dining room is very nice to... More

We stayed at the Heng Keng 5 nights and would recommend it. One of the cleanest hotels I have stayed at. Restoration work is very good, staff is the best. Location is in the middle of George Town. Food at the resturant was ok.

We, where do I start. We stayed here in March. As you walk through the front gates it almost takes you to another world. Beautiful heritage building with a lovely décor.
