It is ironic to find the best BnB in Penang after travelling to many places. But it is really not a bad thing! I have always been a vintage fan with my husband never being one, but we were both equally in awed and impressed with the detailed effort that has been put in to restore this quaint little gem,...

We stayed at the Skywell suite during our time in You Le Yuan. We travelled as family with young children and they were overwhelmed by the spacious bathroom. Kids can't wait to play in the bathtub while we can watched them chilling on the bed. We were surprised by the comfort of the bed which some of the 5* hotels... More

I was totally captivated with the quaint interior. My 2 nights stay here was very comfortable. You can't help but start to wonder and imagine how much effort, work, thoughts and creativity the owner of You Le Yuen has put in to restore this old town house to its current beauty. Service was great!I will definitely return to staying here... More

My wife and I were swept off our feet by the charm of the place the moment we stepped in. We had a duplex room which was very comfortable and homely, and truly enjoyed the hospitality and service of the staff and the owner. This place alone gives us enough reasons to visit Penang again.

We did not know what to expect when we booked this place online. Friends discouraged us saying it is probably haunted. Others said why digresks from the normal safe chain hotel in Batu Ferringhi. Far from it ... the service was excellent! Kit, the owner & manager, waited for us when we arrived at midnight. Our room was prepared just... More

I had the pleasure of staying 2 nights at this wonderfully restored world heritage site townhouse during my quick getaway to Penang. Booking online was a breeze and after a quick check - in, the proprietor/restorer See Kit provided an excellent guided tour of You Le Yuen, covering the history of the property, as well as his painstaking effort to...

Staying in You Le Yuen makes you feel like staying back in the heyday of Penang. From the outside it looked like any vintage shophouse but once you step inside you will be amazed at the beautiful and well restored interior! Staffs are very polite and friendly, always smiling and helpful. Since they are only 4 rooms in You Le... More
