MoonTree 47 is one of the best guesthouses I have ever stayed in. It has atmosphere in abundance and the decor is funky. The cafe and garden area are just lovely. Coffee and food in the cafe is very good. The host, Kent, was so welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for him - he was cheerful, friendly... More

Great service! Kent was so nice to us! He gave us a local SIM card and a phone to use during the day in case we would need anything, as well as good advice on what to visit and where to eat. The room (at the back, with private bathroom) was very cosy and different. It had two floors, the... More

Kent the owner was really helpful and truly friendly. He lend us a phone for the time of our stay and shared his favorite places to eat. Other staff was very nice as well. Free drinking water. The location is excellent. The room is basic, as well as the bathroom, but for the price, I don't think you can get... More

We booked AC room with private bath but the stairs to toilet more like a ladder and room tiny with mattress on the floor. We took a room with shared bath instead as it was larger. Left after one night because it was hot, noisy, expensive (100 ringit)and the bed was VERYuncomfortable. Moved next door to Star Lodge where we... More

We were there for 2 nights during Christmas and loved it. Dickie, the owner is nice and helpful (tho he doesn't a chatty type). The location is convenient, at the centre of the old quarter and close to many hawker stalls and cafes. The place itself also serves breakfast and good coffee (and best apricot scones). Just one thing, if... More

We had a terrible experience at this cafe yesterday. As we were travelling with extended family, some of them had already been seated and ordered drinks. My wife and I came in later to join them, and before even having a chance to order drinks the male wait-staff with curly hair just assumed that we weren't going to order anything... More

Nice place to hangout and I will not comment on the stay there as my friends and I were only there for breakfast. Everything was perfect, it was a perfect weather that morning, we thought we have found nice place to hangout, the decorations looks amazing and yes it does make me proud to be from Penang.
