“Perfect for family gatherings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2015

I was here for a wedding held there last weekend and was impressed by the size of the rooms provided here - it was definitely perfect for a wedding or a big family gathering, because the rooms are SPACIOUS. There's a yard at the back of the house should you wish to hold any events or parties.

The only improvement that I can think of would be that there were uncleared stuffs at the garage area (most possibly from previous visitors of the place? IDK), and that it was a bit off the main road so you may need to have a car to drive around. Otherwise, it was lovely indeed.

Room Tip: Morning Dew room faces the sea. Chocolat and The Studio would be perfect for sharing (three single b...

We booked the hotel based on the highly recommended and good review given by others tourist.
This hotel is really fantastic, clean and comfortable for us. We have given Aquamarine room for our night stay. This room was large and extremely comfortable.
We're also very happy to recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Penang Island.

Nice stay in Chymes Penang during our short escape to Penang.
Clean room, good pillow and mattress, quiet surrounding.
Well, I do feel Chmyes do need some small maintenance anywhere =)
We were fully charged after the short stay there in Chymes.

Room Tip: Morning dew room is large and facing sea (but I think there is some on-going construction there )

Blame it on the poor house numbering system, 547J is not anywhere near 547K. Tugged away along a small lane, the bungalow has a backyard with a door to the beach. Don't expect a Waikiki but rather rustic disorder. There is a bus stop along the main road and have services going into Georgetown and Ferringhi.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There is a TV room with mahjong table. Don't hold your breath for the almost non-existent wifi, The rooms downstairs are larger.
Vivien the proprietress and her husband are helpful. She offered to pick us up from the bus stop on Thaipusam night.

There were 12 of us and four children traveling together and we managed to get a good rate for the entire bungalow. It was perfect for us, enough space for the kids and adults to lounge around, with a TV room, mahjong set and big comfy sofa. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms are new and clean. The location is convenient - about 15 minutes to town, depending on traffic, and a little away from the hustle and bustle.
Our hosts were welcoming and pleasant. Breakfast is served outside, and on our second morning, they were kind enough to buy us some local delights - Penang Hokkien Mee and char kueh teow. We would definitely consider this place again.

Room Tip: Vanilla Black has a good view of the beach and the neighbour's house with a beautiful swimming p...

My family and I found Chymes through booking.com. Recommended access by car would be most convenient. We stayed in the Studio, very spacious, able to accommodate about 5 people comfortably, with about 2-3 people sleeping on the floor.

Kitchen is open for use (microwave, stove and fridge are available). There is access to the beach and a games room which has a mahjong table and TV set. Speakers (music playing) are provided in the living room and in the Studio room.

Our company had a dinner party and booked the whole hotel for the event. The grounds were spacious enough for us to have various activities. The main selling point of Chymes are its uniquely themed rooms, which are all fabulous to stay in! The house owners have not forgotten to provide the small stuff that are so easily forgotten, such as handphone chargers and stationery. In our excitement we broke one of the glass water containers in the kitchen, and the owners were very gracious about it. Also, I was allowed to borrow two books to read for 3 weeks! It is indeed value for money to stay here, and you are assured of excellent service by its caretakers and owners!
