“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

If we must pick that 1 element that makes our Penang trip so fulfilling, it has to be MTP (Mango tree Place).

We came to Penang for many reasons. Rich heritage and culture, nice food and most important, its people. We found all these in one fell swoop, right here in MTP.

The 80 years old houses, furnished with clever and tasteful makeovers, makes this even a more special B&B. Very nostalgic settings yet complete with modern equipment and appliances. Certainly brings back fond memories of my younger days living in similar environment.

A well managed B&B and a warm hospitality by the inn keeper, WEI, very passionate and unpretentious person. Our highlights of this trip turns out to be those intriguing conversations with her and that was some awesome time we had for the makan experience in Air Itam.

MTP is conveniently accessible to 7-11, short walk to Giant shopping mall, good Penang food centers serving both day and night. And yes, MTP served authentic local food for breakfast and if I get up early everyday to eat, it must be really something.

People asked if we will visit again. I think the question should be; when will we return? There is only 1 choice to stay when that happens.

My husband and I and 3 kids under 12 stayed at one of the mango tree houses April 2013. We had the run of the top floor with own bathroom and 2 bedrooms and as there were no other guests the first 2 nights we had the whole house to ourselves. Due to delayed connecting flights we didn't arrive till after midnight but the staff were still very welcoming and accommodating. Mango tree was very clean , very comfortable and very reasonably priced. It is within easy walking distance to old town. The absolute highlight of the trip for my kids was going to breakfast at the mango tree cafe every morning and seeing what was in the breakfast tiffins. The food was excellent and kept us all going until well after lunch. Highly recommend this guest house.

The luxious differents Hotels we have stayed during our four weeks Malaysia Tour were smoked by this Mango Tree Place! A real design style in each detail made by masters not like hybride style looks like nothing or come from no where, the room is spacious, clean, good mention for the bath room particularly when you came back from outside after 2 or 3 hours visiting Georgetown under 36 degree C you will appreciate the showers. Also there are 2 fans, 2 splits air conditioner in the room. The nearby corners are very quiet and peaceful, nice staff (Wei can drive you after big breakfirst to the center of Georgetown every morning)... Bref, If you want to visit Penang Mango Tree Is The Place to be!

The staff in the hotel was really nice, helpfully and thoughtful. We like the rooms we had. They were spacious, clean and new. The nearby environment was so peaceful. Here gave us an unforgettable memory in Penang.

By far the best hotel I stayed in during my holiday.

Wei, the owner, really went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Free WiFi, close to the centre of town and very attentive staff. Could not have asked for more.

Would certainly recommend to anyone looking to spend some time in Georgetown.

We stayed one night in a top floor apartment that had a huge bedroom, then a separate shower room and toilet. We have the whole floor to ourselves and it was really relaxing. Hotel is located outside of the main Georgetown area but it is easy to get cabs and the staff are really helpful with recommending restaurants or giving directions.

Our stay was fantastic. We had 3 nights over a long weekend in Penang and we couldn't have asked for more from Wei and her team.

We were 3 pax staying in the family suite ( 2 br loft style apartment). We felt very safe and secure in our gorgeous town house in surburban Georgetown (MTP consists of 7 town houses in a small street). It was only a 20 min walk from town, 50 m from the bus stop, and we were lucky enough to receive a lift into town in the morning.

The breakfast was a sumptious feast of local delights that was different each day and was suitably filling for long days exploring the old town, street art, and hiking in the national park!

There is a 7-11 50m away for all of your needs.

The main room had a huge king size bed and loads of space. With both a fan and an ac unit we were very comfortable.

The family suite had 1.5 bathrooms with 2 showers which was very handy!

I would return to MTP for my next visit an highly recommend this place.

Great value for money also!
