An absolute haven, set in one of the quaintest streets in the old quarter. Staff were super helpful, from the moment we arrived (to a cooling nutmeg welcome drink!) to the moment we left. We stayed in the Jack Roof room - incredibly spacious, enormous bathroom with complementary L'occitane toiletries, quirky, retro artwork everywhere. Plenty of spaces to explore as... More

This is a wonderful, well put together hotel. It feels personal, quaint, yet classy at the same time. Service was amazing. On check-in, we were greeted by pretty much the entire staff, who dropped by one at a time to say hello while we sipped our welcome fizzy nutmeg drink and munched on tropical fruits and local cakes. The landscaping... More

I would call the stay perfect! The beautiful room aside, everything is thoughtfully arranged and included in the lovelane hotel. From complimentary in-room minibar, afternoon tea, loccitane amenities to a mini library stocked with refreshments. If there was a downside, it would be that you ll not want to leave the hotel to see the rest of Penang. Service is... More

We booked 2 Straits Eclectic rooms for 2 nights recently. Located in the colorful area of Georgetown, this beautifully refurbished property is a delight visually. Nice touches included afternoon tea and all-day bananas, green apples and biscuits. The bedroom is rather big with a comfy queen-sized bed and huge bathroom. No bathtub though. What I didn't like was the spotty... More

Took a Muntri Suite for 4 days for 3 families and the house must be about 300 to 350 sqm. It is decorated with pictures, artifacts, artwork, tradtional furniture yet has the modern amenities like washing machine, dryer fully functional kitchen. Wifi works well and the kids like it. Great local food in the vicinity but parking is a slight... More

First the bad: 1. Noisy location. On the first night we tried sleeping using the ceiling fan only, but the songs playing from some nearby pub/club were too distracting. Turning the aircon on helped - whitenoise is easier to sleep with. 2. To be very very picky, the mechanism of ringing the bell (using a rope) when returning in the... More
