I'm just back from my trip in Malaysia, visited Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Langkawi.
Coffee Atelier is located right on the edge of little India in Georgetown. It takes about 30 minutes by cab from the airport. CA is not just another hotel, it's an experience ! When we arrived we were greeted by Stefan the owner who put all his passion and dedication into his little Guesthouse, and we could feel, right from the beginning that CA is a home away from home. Stefan collects art pieces , pictures and old furnitures, CA is also a museum. Very much for Guests that look out of the box and tired to stay in those regular hotels...
We stayed with 3 people in flat number 49 at first floor. I couldn't believe my eyes when we opened the door...everything was so unique here...the old wooden floors, the colorfu door and window frames, little cupboards....the master bedroom was huge and the bed very comfortable. The smaller room with single bed was perfect. High ceilings, good air condition and fans...absolutely clean. The little details were amazing. I.e soap was tea tree soap and shampoo was locally made. The bathroom was outdoors on a sort of balcony...amazing experience :) :) wifi speed was ok.
We could easily walk from CA to all spots in Georgetown. Stefan always took his time to explain and recommend things, he truly walked the extra mile for us.
There is just one little thing I have to write : our room (440 ringgit, which is quiet expensive for Malaysia) was included with breakfast. Unfortunately we had to leave at 7:45 am, and breakfast starts at 8:30 am...it would have been nice just to prepare a little take away box for us to take on the ferry, as we actually paid for breakfast..
We had such an amazing stay at CA, and we thank the owner for the experience living in a masterpiece of art :)
