We chose this hotel for its heritage style and central location and we were not disappointed! We booked the Garden Suite which is on the first floor. Room size is adequate as is the storage space and bathroom. There was a problem with the sound quality on the TV but we didn't come to George Town to watchTV! Just outside... More

We stayed at Yeng Keng Hotel, located down-town and close to various restaurants, food stalls and shopping. It is with short walking distance to various historical sights in Georgetown. Unlike large multistory hotels, this hotel had a personal and friendly atmosphere. The boutique hotel is a refurbished mansion of a by-gone era. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room... More

The location on Chulia Street is excellent - close to night hawker stalls, walking distance to free city shuttle and Line Clear nasi kandar. It is a nicely restored small hotel with modern amenities. Smallish rooms but sufficiently equipped with a safe, drinking water, shower and toiletries. Breakfast is a small spread of local dishes (roti prata, nasi lemak), bread,... More

Very beautiful hotel, decorated to the last detail. Bedroom is very nice and comfortable. The hotel staff are very well trained, nd tirelessly serve with pleasant attitude. Special mention go to Hanif at the cafe ~ by far the most pleasant and attentive waiter i have come across in all my travels.

I think one of the many things that Yeng Keng hotel stood out from the other hotels it's the design of the whole building. It still retains the interior and exterior designs of a traditional peranakan building, with an extra flair of European style with its carefully chosen furnitures. The room that we stayed, the Chulia suite, is pretty cramp... More

We stayed at the Yeng Keng after reading reviews on this site. It's a great little place, full of charm and history. It's very clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The hotel is perfectly situated to be used as a base to explore Georgetown although our room was cramped - there wasn't a lot of space to stretch... More

From the moment I made my booking to our arrival at Yeng Keng, and several emails in between, I encountered nothing but excellent customer service and can't recommend the pace highly enough. Beautiful building, lovely pool, great food at restaurant, good location..... Rooms were modern and clean and staff friendly, courteous and happy to help. Can't imagine how anyone could... More

We had 5 nights here. The rooms are small but clean, comfortable and lack nothing. The hotel is charming, well renovated old style in a good location. The staff are very pleasant and most helpful. The restaurant whilst having limited offerings was satisfactory
