Its my 2nd time staying. Low rise hotel and believe it was converted from shophouses. Lift is available. The deco of the room is full of antiques. It's cozy and comfortable. Just take note for those staying in the loft suite. The stairs that connect from the bed room to the living hall is very slippery. I fell twice during... More

Beautiful Rooms. Nicely preserved building. Great staff. Very friendly and helpful. Location is good, walking distance from all there is to see in town and from great places to eat and drink. They have a nice spa with very good offer on massages and treatments. Loved it

A very nice, homey and comfortable place to stay. It is an old existing old shop lot converted into a hotel. Very interesting with a combination of new, modern and old furniture and room furnished. Enjoy your stay there and if you wish to eat.. Nasi kandar restaurant is just across the street.

Very charming boutique hotel! We had a double twin room, styled like a loft so there was plenty of space. Clean room and neat touches like stained glass and local art. Location is great. Beds were very Western-style comfortable. Within easy walking distance to many good food stops like Tai Tong for dim sum and Kimberly Street. Staff were kind... More

The staff at the Hotel Penaga greeted us warmly and when we were showed to our rooms we were very pleasantly surprised. Spacious rooms that were a lovely blend of old and new. Bed was very comfortable and the room had everything we needed. The pool was a welcome relief when we got back from walking around the old area.... More

I have stayed here twice, always in the converted shop front "townhouse" which has a kitchen, spa pool, balcony, 2 bedrooms/bathrooms, and living area. The decor is a mix of traditional and contemporary but works well. The bedrooms are very comfortable and having the space to relax in your own living room is great for a group of friends or... More

This relaxing hotel, formed from several beautifully restored colonial era shophouses, may be a short way away from George Town's main streets, but don't let that put you off. The rooms are tasteful and comfortable and the staff friendly and welcoming. As others have noted, though, I wouldn't eat in the hotel's restaurant. You can find far better (and cheaper)... More

We stayed for a long weekend and it was perfect. It allowed us to walk all through George Town, it's in a great location. The rooms are spacious and thoughtfully decorated. Lacked for nothing, the staff were helpful and friendly and the restaurant was great. We loved it.

I stayed here as a special treat for a friend who visited me out in Penang. We didn't eat here or use the pool but my friend did use the spa facilities and was very impressed. The room we had was double balcony; breakfast wasn't included but we are across the street at a local place. The facilities within the... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in a Transfer Suite. The staff were very helpful & hospitable, the rooms large, clean & comfortable. It's a family-friendly hotel & reasonably quite. It's located outside of the main tourist areas so the experience in the near-by street is very local. There is a famous Roti chanai street stand in Transfer St adjacent... More
