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

Despite its curious name of "Pulau Tikus", which translates as "Rat Island", Pulau Tikus is actually a small suburb of George Town. It is neither an island nor is it infested with rats. Instead it is actually named after a small rocky islet located off the north-east coast of Penang. Pulau Tikus has in the past been home to small... More
