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.

Our family room was large, comfortable and spacious. It had a great warm power shower and working air con. Whilst the room was great what I really want to rave about is the owner Kent, he really made our stay. Kent was amazing! So helpful and kind, a genuinely lovely person. He gave us a map on our arrival and... More

The personal service that Kent and his team provided made our stay unforgettable! We arrived late in the evening and was apprehensive, as the streets were dark, but Kent greeted us with a warm sincere smile and addressed us by name. The motel is unique and eccentric. My wife and kids loved the historical authentic feel and was over the... More

So, yeah, were going to Penang and was looking for a place, found this,, went. Kent. Kent is the new owner of this place, and in endless, constant 30+ years of travelling, I've never, ever, ever, ever encountered a more purely incredibly staggering human being to welcome me anywhere, anywhere else. This guy is madness. The warmest. Well, he welcomed... More
