This is the 2nd time that I'm here. Stayed here about a year ago and just loved this place. Best thing is that even though it has been a year, everything is looks and feels the same, the rooms, the staff...no regrets. Very convenient location, especially for food and it's just a short walk away. This will be my first... More

We stayed in the downstairs Terrace. Spacious bedroom and spacious bathroom, high ceilings and great character. There was even a small sitting area outside where you could enjoy a coffee and the heritage nature of the street (all similar 2-storey character houses). Quiet street, especially at night. When we arrived Jennifer told us about the great eating spots within waking... More

Stayed in terrace suite 39 with 2 small kids. Room was spacious with an outside terrace to have bfast whilst watching passerbies. Bangkok Lane itself is a row of full heritage houses with 2 (halal) kopitiams at the end. Our room , plus the street and the easily available kopitiam food made our whole stay have an authentic heritage feel.... More

Located on a heritage street just out of the bustle of Georgetown. Close to markets, street food, shopping and transport just around the corner, Palanquinn was an excellent place to rest and recover from visiting all the sights to see in Penang. Rooms were comfortable and spacious with excellent AC and all you need. Special mention to Jennifer and Kelvyn... More

We had an extended stay at Palanquinn in the loft and really enjoyed it. The staff was exceptional and friendly, helping us with many things. The street is a bit noisy during the day but is quiet at night. There are many great eating places close by, a grocery store, and not far from Gurney Drive. We preferred to stay... More

Lovely place located rather far from the busy centre, but bus stop just around the corner. Very good street restaurants and markets near the hotel. We found this spacious place with pleasant atmosphere just right for us - two adults and one kid. The staff was extremelly helpful.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Palanquinn. Jennifer and Kelvyn go out of their way to insure the comforts of their guests. The property is located about a 5-10 minute bus ride out of the busy part of Georgetown, but the bus stop is an easy 2-5 minute walk away. It's located on a quiet street, but... More

I stayed 2 nights in the lower level suite. The room was spacious with huge bathroom and terrace for 'people watching' out front. While it is listed as a B&B on Trip Advisor, breakfast is not provided, but this was no problem as there are so many choices nearby. Less than 5 min walk to Pulau Tikus markets which is... More

coming from a fast paced city and wanting to slow things down a little, Penang is probably a great place to visit. there are many hotels in Penang but we are so happy to have discovered this great place.
