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. Numerous email correspondence with Jennifer from PS made me eager and we looked forward to the visit very much and certainly... More

Actually stayed in the Loft Suite here back in 2011 (not 2013). The room was fantastic and the owners really pleasant and helpful. The suite has a portion of the balcony set up as the bathroom, which is still private, fantastic, bit different and cool. A great place to stay.

I'm glad I chose to stay at this place. It was a little difficult to find coming from the ferry, but it was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The room really had an antique feel to it, especially the furniture and the main door. The owner was extremely helpful and nice. Upon finding out that I was... More

We stayed here in January 2013 - one of the most enjoyable stays I've experienced despite my initial reservations. Nothing fancy here but it has all the charm and ambiance of pre-war Penang/Asia that you could want. We got the terrace suite, which adequately accommodated our family of 2 adults and 3 kids. No maintenance issues - they provided extra... More

PalanquInn, Manager at Palanquinn Heritage Suites, responded to this review

Dear DedeepyaSunil, We apologize that the air-conditioning did not meet your expectation. Because Palanquinn is a restored heritage house with higher ceilings, the rooms may take some time to cool down. Nevertheless we have taken your feedback constructively and are looking into ways to improve this. Thank you for your feedback. More
