“Excellent boutique type history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Not yet had its hard opening, so new the obliging taxi driver from the airport went to considerable trouble to find it. Beautiful building, beautiful furnishings, right in the centre of Georgetown. Obliging staff. The restaurant and bar are not yet opened, but there is no shortage of places nearby. The antique furnishings, and peaceful sense of the past are a real pleasure. Not an 'active' family holiday hotel - plenty in Penang, but if you are looking for a historic, comfortable , boutique, experience, even allowing for it still being a work in progress, give this one a try. Staff could not have been more obliging

Stayed February 2013, traveled solo

I was invited to stay there for a night just to try out the newly open museum hotel. It was a great experience. They have a varieties of great antiques collection and i was amaze that most of them were genuine. Well trained and very friendly stuff. Although its still new but over all was good. Great architecture, cozy atmosphere & great hospitality.
