The location is fantastic, as it is a short walking distance to local attractions and eateries. The staff are warm and friendly. The room was beautiful with modern design & amenities which we loved. It was a perfect romantic getaway for couples, and an ideal place for people who love their privacy. We look forward to come again to Penang... More

excellent location and room is decent except wall is not soundproof that you will hear the movement of the water pipes. generally, it's okay and value the money considering the location and great service staffs assisting us.

We were very lucky to have met the owner Andre who was very warm on the day we checked in.

And every time we came downstairs there was always a service staff... More

I had to look around online for another hotel because the one that I was eyeing was all booked up and I came across the Boutique Residence Hotel and decided to go for it because of the close proximity to the many places I was keen to explore. And I spent 4 nights at the hotel and was pleased with... More
