The heritage hotel is centrally located in Georgetown, within walking distance to many delicious food stalls that the island is famous for. Rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff friendly. Their restaurant serves Hainanese and western meals and the standard is pretty good.

We really liked this hotel. The presentation is great and the staff very nice and friendly. The room was a little small but to be expected for a historical hotel building. The building renovations are well done and the hotel is very clean and a credit to the staff. My daughter and I enjoyed staying at the Yeng Keng. The... More

On arrival the staff were very welcoming and hospitable, served us a fresh juice. Very good example of renovated shop house. Comfortable and homey room, lots of nice personal touches . Breakfast could do with some more choices, basic but ok. Would recommend to stay there, easy walk to everything

This is why tripadvisor works. I would never bother to write a review unless the place really was special. This place gets it right from rooms, decoration, cleanliness, service, location etc etc. Brekkie could be a bit more interesting but that's the only area for improvement. I saw a review on foursquare about room size and someone related to hotel... More

We wanted a hotel away from the beach area and we thrilled by the Yeng Keng. We had a beautiful room with all the appropriate facilities, the staff were charming and efficient and the café was fun and convenient. The pool is smallish but welcoming ( we didn't see any other guests using it!).

We have travelled all over from Russia, turkey, China, Thailand,India, morocco, Portugal, USA, etc. Usually disappointing especially for the price you pay.most places are lacking in the vital area of service. Yengkeng scores high on location and overall value for price. Most of all we were struck by the excellent service. Staff were anticipatory of our needs, very helpful and... More

stayed here for two nights in room 204. The hotel has a lot of character and very clean. Location is convenient enough to Georgetown POIs. Comfortable bed, clean updated bathroom (no tub). My family had a very pleasant stay here. Side tip, uber is on Penang now and we used it to go everywhere to escape walking in the heat.... More

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
