First of all, the owner (Kent) is a super nice guy. He provides everybody with a map and many information on what to visit, where and what to eat (local food). He also provides a cell phone to be able to contact him if we had any questions or problems. The accommodation is simple but very special. Great cafe to... More

By writing this review-I am terrified that this gem of a guest house will be overbooked, as I intend to come back. Why? The manager Kent is charming, efficient and caring of his guests. Why? The guest house is quaint and odd, and quirky and strange, and totally awesome...from a shower and toilet on the outside balcony for the top... More

I like that the rooms are arranged and decorated as though there are house-rooms, and not hotel-rooms. The furniture, fittings, etc really suits and elevates the mood. I love that my room is on the ground floor, placed at the end of the unit, opening the door will let you see the garden straight away. The location is very near... More

This was my favorite place to stay in all of Malaysia! Kent is incredibly friendly and welcoming and gives great travel advice that helps you make the most of your time in the city. Thanks to his recommendations, we had a wonderful time in George Town! The hotel itself is in a beautiful old building, and is centrally located. Definitely... More

When you set out to create a hotel that is quirky and created cheaply,..... the price should not be overinflated. Ken the manager was great but better facilities where all around at half the price. Enjoyed the area and moved down the road.

We loved staying at Moon Tree 47 for many reasons: the very cosy, authentic style of the guesthouse, the spacious room with very high ceiling (the roomabove the bar), fast wi-fi, great food and excellent coffee, but most of all because Kent (the owner) and the staff treated us as friends. When I had stomach problems Kent gave me a... More

This is an ideal place for those who prefer to ditch fancy or not so fancy hotels in favour of a homestay experience in a lovely environment where they do feel welcome. Kent, the owner, is just marvellous and his small guesthouse a quirky and very pleasant place to stay whilst in Georgetown. We were welcome, given a map in... More

Had a lovely cup of coffee and snack at this cafe. There's a nice courtyard in the back too. Food was great and not too expensive and the staff was lovely. They also sell postcards and stamps if you want to send postcards home.

My husband and I enjoyed every moment we spent at Moon Tree 47. The accommodations are stellar and the staff is so hospitable. Kent, the owner, is INCREDIBLE. Such a genuine man that clearly loves to guide guest to the best that Georgetown has to offer. Such central location with daily suggestions on amazing food to try. Writing this review... More

On arrival the service that Kent (the owner) provided us was so informative giving us directions to things to see and do as well as some of the fabulous food Penang has to offer! The rooms were unique and homely.
