We spent our wedding anniversary weekend at Dwell and our stay from start to finish had been incredible. Jennifer got her driver to escort us from the airport which was really convenient since ours was a late flight in. The property is incredibly charming and we loved the comfortable bed and outdoor bath - the latter was secluded and allowed... More

Well located, with Gurney Paragon and Plaza on one side and many local restaurants/food courts nearby on the other side, this well maintained heritage property is a great place to base yourself while in Penang. The 101 and 102 bus runs past at the end of the street, providing access to most of Penang, with great shopping at Gurney Paragon... More

I've been to Dwell twice and it's my favourite place in Penang. It's a gorgeous heritage house in a relaxed are and perfect for me to spend a weekend. If you want to visit Georgetown, theres's a bus stop 2 minutes away and the bus will take you in 20 minutes to the Old Town. Personally I like the are... More

We booked this hotel for NYE thinking it would be a nice room to spoil ourselves, however were quite disappointed for the price. While the room was decent, it missed some basics like soundproofing! A warning for if you are in the room downstairs, do not expect much sleep. It sounds like there are elephants overhead and every movement of... More

Despite the unique setting, we find the accommodation over priced. The worse part is it is situation on a quiet street where the silence is shattered by the odd rude motorbike screaming down through it, whilst the room did not provide any kind of sound insulation. The sleep was intermittent at best. The most unique part of this hotel, with... More

1. Affordable and convenient location: the suites are just across the road from Gurney Drive and a short walk the other way will take you to fabulous street eats and a local morning market. 2. Adequate room space and clean linens: we booked a room on the ground floor and were provided with clean towels and bed linens. Space is... More

We arrived in Georgetown having booked the Dwell for 3 nights. However, on the first night we found that the air conditioner was not working. Furthermore, when we told the receptionist on the next morning, she initially mentioned it was going to be difficult to get it fixed since it was Chinese New Year. We were dreading the prospect of...

Penang offer an eclectic mix of sophisticated suites, refurbished shophouses and heritage hotels filled with history from the yesteryears. Dwell by Palanquinn caught my attention while i was filtering through the choices of lodging in Penang. Dwell is located in Lorong Bangkok, just on the outskirts of Georgetown. Stepping into Lorong Bangkok, you can't help but notice the two rows... More
