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.

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

Superb location. Big local foodcourt serving large selection of penang delicacies and lots of heritage landmarks in it's vicinity. Spacious and clean room with attached bathroom. Served by friendly staff. Worth for money.
