Stunning stay in Kent's little piece of Georgetown paradise. Service, facilities are all fantastic. A great affordable way to experience Georgetown without having to do the backpacker hostel stay. Kent gave great advice for things to do in the area as well.

When my friend and I arrived at Moontree 47, we were instantly blown away by it's relaxed atmosphere (especially the cats). The owner, Kent, is probably the friendliest man i met in Malaysia, and i still miss him! The rooms were filled with personality and style, as well as having all the basic amenities needed. The location is also excellent,... More

In the old town, this charming place offers stylish rooms and a nice backyard - perfect for chillling. This is a ideal spot to go and discover George Town. Plus, the kindness and the tips of the host make this hostel even more special.

I have just returned home after a week's stay at Moontree 47. My friends and I came to Penang for a wedding, and although my friends stayed at a big hotel around the corner, I wanted something less western. And it's exactly what I was looking for. Kent, the owner, from the 1st booking email was helpful and friendly. He... More

Kent the host couldn't be more friendly and helpful but the other staff aren't much of either. Breakfast isn't very good and isn't included in the price, rooms are atmospheric but no noise protection from neighbours (walls don't reach the ceiling). Good location.

Spent 2 nights at this beautiful small hotel. The owner, Kent, was helpful beyond Imagination. He helped us to the best spots in the city. When we had to leave because of that he was overbooked, he helped us find a New place. Beautifully decorated rooms and cosy café!

This little boutique hotel was lovely. Kent, the owner of the hotel was very very friendly, funny and helpful. He designed each room simply but nice and also the staffs there they were very nice as well. I had good time in this awesome hotel. If you are going to Penang, I highly recommend this hotel.

The place has a cute vintage decoration, but unfortunately my experience here has been awful. We were supposed to stay one night in Penang, but when checking in I informed the supervisor that my husband was sick and since fever is unpredictable, we might have been forced to extend our stay, due to his illness. The supervisor Kevin answered that... More

We stayed for two nights and the experience was very good. Ken, the owner, was very helpful and kind. The room had what we expected for the price. It's really worth it. If you are looking for a cheap place with clean and comfortable room this GuestHouse is a good choice.
