This special place in the middle of the heart of Georgetown is not easy to find and somehow not easy to reach but if you have once been there you won't easily leave it.
It does not matter how you call it even though it is classified as boutique hotel. The rooms a built in four shop houses which are besides each other. Lovely rennovated with every room in a different style and a high attention to detail. A small gallery and a nice cozy restaurant belong to the hotel as well. The hotel is managed by a lovely swiss/hongkong chinese couple with great passion and always the view for a customer. This is even more to highlight as both do not have any background on hospitality...and this makes the different. Its not business ...it passion by heart.
The restaurant is another oasis you hardly find in Malaysia and maybe not even often in Asia. You can have a good breakfast with all you need, a simple straight but super tasty lunch...but the best of all is the "Tapas Style" menu. You have a choice of over 50 dishes...and actually you dont know what to choose first. Whatever I have tried it was just simply "yummy"... great braised beef cheek, sizzling prawns, tasty grilled eggplant, flavorfull grilled pork ribs, teriyaki salmon or or or... I make it simple go there and eat and you know what I mean. You can combine the great food with a nice bottle of wine. They do have a fair selection of international wines (try the spanish) and super fair priced.
I can only recommend the place go to Lorong Stewart, sit outside in one of the Rattan Chairs and enjoy Penang life... you will surely miss something if you dont try it out.
