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

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

Pros: Great location, heritage flavor, polite staff Cons: Staff is not available after 6pm, so you are on your own in case there is a problem. Rooms are too small. But I understand that can't be changed as it is a heritage house. I would never put it in the category of a hotel. Guest house...maybe. But homestay is what... More

After looking through lots of good reviews about this hotel, I found it a great deal of disappointment after experiencing myself. Air-conditioner was not functioning well, Astro(tv channel) couldn't be turn on, and hot water for bathtub is cold. Nothing can be worst than these 3 most important facilities in the room not working. After mentioning to the staff, the... More
