We stayed in the opium room which had the most wonderful four poster bed and bathroom as well as being really well equipped. The staff were brilliantly helpful with restaurant recommendations and answering all our questions and there were so many... More

The hotel and its staff are amazingly welcoming, friendly and unique. This was our second stay and there are more to come. Although hotel food is generally frowned upon in Penang, please do not miss trying the excellent Italian food served in the lobby restaurant. The owners and staff are full of tips and tricks to make sure you can... More
