The room was fitted with a Doraemon lamp, Doraemon back rests,... More

We stayed in the old house 12 and really enjoyed it. A real homely feel and a very nice and helpfull owner who makes you feel right at home. Walkable distance to Georgetown and nice eateries right around the corner.

I paid to stay in no.12, but turned up to the guesthouse where there was no one in. Once the owner turned up after his neighbour called him, he tried to get me to stay in a windowless, cellar-like room on the ground-floor in no.8. I kicked up a fuss and got moved to no.12 after all, which was so... More

The house is a lovely old colonial style from the 30s. The atmosphere in the house is lovely, the decor makes it feel very at home. The owner Koh is very friendly and helpful. We had the family room, which was very spacious, with it's own bathroom. The room was clean and very nice. The distance to the old city... More

We loved the atmosphere of the place, it has an identity, and not just a standard hotel. Clean, clean, clean. You don't hear cars, or any street noise, but walls are thin, if there are other guests may be noisy. Free parking. It is a good place, we recommend.

I stayed in the Japanese style room last year and I will definately stay at this place again this coming Chinese New Year. Clean room, location is good, it's not far from town. They have almost anything I need, attached bathroom, laundry room, fridge, wifi. This place is strongly recommended!

Just walk to main road Jalan Burma, there are 2 food courts (non halal) same roll with Union Chinese school with good food... More

Stayed there for 2 nights in 2 different rooms. The rooms were clean and had a great aura of mystery surrounding it. The staff were very helpful ad kinnd. Didn't meet any open-minded travellers there, lot of people in the lobby didn't seem friendly. Mybe it was because we were a travelling couple?? Can't knock the hostel though!

We were staying the Tokyo Story room, we had a very nice and comfortable stay at there. And most important thing is, the location of the guesthouse is super good! Just in the middle of Georgetown area and Gurney Drive :)
