Very pleased with my stay there. The Family Suite on the ground floor came with a queen-sized bed, a single bed and a sofa bed (convertable to another single bed) with ample space for the 3 of us to move around. Location is good and easily accessible to food outlets (eg. Line Clear Nasi Kandar), public transportation (eg. Free shuttle... More

After much research, I finally decided to stay at Wil House because of the reviews I read. Once I booked the deluxe suite, I got an email confirming my booking and making sure both sides had the information needed for pickup from the airport and check in at the house. Like another review mentioned, this is not a hotel, so... More

The atmosphere is comfortable, chilled and you would love the Maids - so beautiful ;) There is no receptionist - yes! Only Mr... More

Stayed in the 'Deluxe Suite'. It was spacious with lovely quirky decor, a very good bathroom, and was spotlessly clean. It is a fairly convenient location, on the very far edge of Chinatown and around a 15 minute walk to many of Georgetown's main attractions. However it is important to note that this place definitely does NOT have hotel-style service.... More

We stayed one night at Wil House. Wilson, the host, was very friendly and just an all around cool guy. Our room was also brilliantly decorated with old style radios, wash basins and other really cool things. The only downside was that it was located right next to a mosque, so we were woken up at 6am by prayers, but... More

A cozy boutique hotel, feel like at home, very good location. The host is a friendly guy, he will tell you where to get all the good food in Penang, where to visit and what to see, you actually don't have to do any homework.

We in Penang after an overnight train from Thailand and needed somewhere to stay. We looked at a few hotels that were nothing special then spotted Wil House and were blown away. It was slightly more than we wanted to pay but it was beautiful and well worth the extra. The service received was excellent, the rooms fantastic, clean and... More
