All the photos you see about this gorgeous place are true! You can spend hours sitting in the shady courtyard looking at Penang retro paraphernalia . Service really helpul yet unobtrusive. Excellent position and staff dont sell on expensive tours but give advice about local buses and great food Loved my stay

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.

Don’t expect to be in a 5 star hotel but expect a 10 star staff. Super friendly and with lots of good recommendations around town. The owner gave us a map with places to visit and eat! To be honest at first I was a little bit skeptical mas all ended up to be one of my favorite places in... More

MoonTree is, firstly, a guesthouse. So if you're expecting a boutique hotel with accompanying services and facilities, this is not the place for you. However, if you are after a local and unique experience that takes you back to the 70s/80s, this is the place. My partner and I stayed in a double room with shared bath for 3 nights.... More
