This hotel is conveniently located at the center of Georgetown whereby there are plenty of hawker & street foods, bars, available within a few meters away from the hotel. If you love walking, then venture out on foot to the Unesco World Heritage site which will take about 15 mins walk or alternatively, you can hire trishaw to chauffeur you... More

This is an oasis in the middle of Georgetown. Right on Lebuh Chulia, within striking distance of all the major sights and on major bus routes as well that take you to the outskirts. Reception and service is unobtrusive and yet very responsive - a request for a packed breakfast due to an early flight was accepted without even a... More

My wife and I both enjoyed our stay in this clean and friendly hotel. If we return to Penang , we would stay here again. We have spent 6 nights here, every one pleasant. There was a little street noise on Merdeka night .. But that was understandable. All in all, a great holiday

Good location in Georgetown, all major site within walking distance in historic center. Level of service is high and management and maintenance of the hotel seem to be very high. In Chulia suite 1, of course street noise of the street can be hearded as describe on previous review, but not so high as expected to be reading other review.... More

We stayed there 3 nights in August 2014. This is a nice hotel with a helpful staff. The best part about the hotel is the location. You can walk from here to all the points of interest within the heritage zone. Lots and lots of eateries within walking distance as well. Take left and go to Queen street and the... More

It is located in the heritage area so there are lots attractions nearby to explore. 2. Customer Service: Rooms were clean and the room service was quick to respond to any needs. Everyone at the hotel was... More

Beautifully restored old hotel with modern amenities. 5 star quality small boutique hotel. Located within walking distance to many interesting sights (Khoo Kongsi, Chew Jetty, interesting buildings etc). Rooms are clean, large and beautiful. They managed to get a pool made for a reasonable small hotel. Breakfast was interesting with a good selection of local cakes but do not expect... More

We stayed for 4 nights last week. Plus points - excellent location for food and exploring, polite and helpful staff, simple but appetizing breakfast, cosy ambience (more like staying at home) and tasteful design. Minus points - located in busy street (can be noisy for rooms at the front), only 2 of tv channels worked, repair works at 10pm, sole... More

We booked two nights as part of a self fly-drive trip around Malaysia. We liked both Georgetown and in particular this hotel so much we extended our stay by another two nights. All the good reviews are justified, best breakfast selection even compared to top 5* hotels around the world in my opinion; great selection of local favourites including seasonal... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The place was clean, safe, unique, and we were always very warmly greeted. The hotel is small and personal, and our needs always seemed to matter to the staff. Its like they were looking to see where they could help (e.g., "what are you doing today? Oh going for a... More
