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.

Very Penang, although the room is aged, it's clean and safy. Speedy wifi! The host Kent is a super nice guy and show you many authentic dining venues and places to visit. Kent can make a good coffee as well. Will visit here again.

Kent is amazing! As soon as you walk in the door he will provide you with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Penang and then some! A cell phone, a detailed food map and a run down of all the local attractions are included before you even see your room. And the rooms! The rooms are delightful! If... More

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
