Clans Kongsi Georgetown are unique boutique residences inside Penang’s heritage jewel – the Khoo Kongsi right in the heart of the Georgetown Unesco World Heritage Site. The residences now occupy what was originally known by the Khoo Clan as Sixteen Houses. They were so named as they were built as 16 units of terrace houses flanking the alleyway from the main entrance to the central Clan Temple and courtyard. Clans Kongsi Georgetown's guests will gain a deeper appreciation of the area's rich history as we offer free morning walk (45 min) with your "host" (subject to weather conditions). In addition, guests will be able to enjoy multiple entries to the Khoo Kongsi Clan House itself (during their operating hours, 0900-1700).

Excellent boutique hotel in a central location, walking distance to everything. The staff are exceptional in their service and will go out of their way to assist and helped us out when my partner was unwell. The rooms are beautiful with a wonderful tasteful tropical colonial aesthetic and space. The room is equipped with a nespresso machine and you can access filtered water, non alcoholic drinks whenever you want. They also have a delightful afternoon tea which is complimentary and served to your room or in the lounge area. I will definitely be returning here on my next trip to Penang.

Don't be fooled by the street appearance of the building since it looks like an old and shabby shop houses, but inside is a clean and well maintained old building. Operated in very simple way with not many facilities, but offers you a quiet and unique atmosphere.
