Well, promise me you won't tell anyone else ... this is my secret tip for Penang. I always love to stay in the historic center of a city, so I choose this hotel, and did not go to Batu Ferringhi. And I like boutique hotels which usually give you the personal touch.
All my expectations were exceeded. Nice hotel, 18 suites only, nice woodwork, nice courtyard, spacious open loggias where you can hide reading or relaxing even when the rain is pouring, a library, a good bar with an outstanding bar keeper, and a nice antique shop in case you are looking for the next special present.
Nice breakfast - the best cappuccino and espresso ever! Wonderful restaurant, the Kebaya. Not for the purists, because it is Peranakan cuisine developped further and modernised - but so delicious.
I will be back soon ;-)
