We stayed here for 11 nights and really enjoyed the refurbishment of this old Chinese Shophouse.If you dont enjoy the confines of the typical Hotel room but do want comfort and space this is the place for you in Georgetown!!The location is great and within walking distance of some of the best food and historic attractions. The only downside is... More

Thanks again for staying with us and glad you enjoyed your time in George Town and at Coffee Atelier. By the way: Our restaurant is only closed down from 11am-2pm in order we can take care of the hotel suites. Otherwise we are open and serve breakfast and some small bites in the afternoon/evening.

Loved everything about this property. It had a great colonial vibe, interesting location, within walking distance of Georgetown's street art, and great for families. I loved the semi-outdoor shower, and the separate kids room. We received a warm welcome, and only regretted that we had only one night.

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is well-located, we had the entire upper floor of one shophouse, consisting of one large bedroom and one smaller bedroom. Nice decor, and we liked that much of the "old" shophouse remained - the doors and locks, the wooden floors etc. At the same time, all amenities were provided - we... More

This place had everything. Boutique charm, located in the heart of everything, a la carte breakfast included every morning, friendly staff and a vintage green Jaguar out the front! The building itself is in a Chinese-Colonial style and must be at least 100 years old... it has been sympathetically and lovingly refurbished by the owners, with much or its original... More

We had a great 3 nights stay with Stefan and his team. The place was small, as in there were only the rooms and a small cafe, but the room is by no means small. We stayed in suite 49B which came with a big master bedroom and an additional single room. Stefan has kept the authenticity of the place... More

If you want to experience a taste of old Georgetown right in the centre of the street art and heritage buildings this is the place. This refurbished building is surprisingly spacious inside. Luggage is delivered to your room which is spacious, clean, air conditioned and comfortable. Toilet and shower are private, but semi outdoors. This adds to the experience. The... More

Stayed on the first floor of the shophouse for 2 nights. Clean and very spacious rooms. The staff were very helpful with directions and attractions around town. Within 5 mins from the main thoroughfare where theres plenty of cafes, pubs and local street food. Will be back!

I stayed here in aug 2012. A wonderful retreat tucked away from the bustle of Georgetown. Very comfortable and clean. An outside bathroom which I loved and a suite of three rooms with my own courtyard. I would love to stay here again when next I am in Penang. So much history and heritage. I felt very much at home.
