The hotel is located in a traditional Chinese building with a courtyard filled with plants. The rooms are very basic but cosy and charming. There's no glass in the windows which created natural air-conditioning for a good night's sleep. The service is super friendly! you can get help with anything you need. There's also a loundry place right in front... More

Loved staying at this old converted Chinese shophouse with great charm and history. Kent who runs the place has a penchant for collecting antiques, taking photographs, growing plants and has a keen eye in constantly improving this establishment. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good air-conditioning. We had the front bedroom upstairs with lovely antique windows to look out... More

It's a nostalgic feeling from childhood. Well preserved facade and interior decoration of the building. Its' heritage, culture and the friendly owner. Not forgetting to mention how helpful he is. Great coffee too.

Right after booking a room a greeting e-mail comes, and the responsiveness continues with details how to get to the place. Perfect start, the guy running the place keeps the same positive impression through the whole stay, providing a map upon arrival marking all the sights to see, places to eat, including the street art locations. The place itself is... More

The owner, Kent, told us that he wanted to preserve a "traditional" feel. And he did a great job at it! Kent was incredibly friendly, giving each of us a map with hand-picked highlights, from major museums to where to get the best char kway teow in the city. Although often times he's busy working the cafe, during quieter hours,... More

The most cosy place in the whole area! Feels like home. Loved every moment we spent there. The "homemade" map Kent provided was superhelpful, we followed all his suggestions and had the best time. Greetings to Kent and Mister Cat! See you soon!

We had a very positive experience at Moontree 47. I have never experienced service like this at any guesthouse before. Kent might be the coolest host I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He arranged for our airport pick-up and gave us a thorough briefing of the house rules and local tips as soon as we checked in. He... More

When you enter this guesthouse you feel it straight away: this place is artistic with a nice and friendly atmosphere. The owner Kent, a (ex-) photographer himself explains you all ins-and-outs of Georgetown by using a self-designed city map. Ask for the big front room with old-Chinese windows and shutters, you won't find it cosier than this in Georgetown.
