We stayed at seven terraces in the Argus apartment for 4 days and loved it. The location is great, the breakfasts are delicious and the service probably by Robert, Jane and Wendy couldn't be faulted. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay in Penang!

A place to dine with the Peranakan ambience. A chance to view how the Babas of old used to live. It is like going back many decades. The food served is definitely authentic nyonya. Staff very friendly

A very nice traditional house design hotel. Definitely worth to stay a night here if you love heritage feel. They have good hospitality and make you feel like home during your stay. And you can hunt for street art with just a short walk from hotel. Definitely will visit again in future.

We were travelling to Penang for the bustle and eclectic energy of George Town. We chose to stay at Seven Terraces for its charm, location and room formats that worked for us and the kids (4 & 7). It was one of those times when expectations are high after we found friends had also been there and raved about it....

This small hotel is in great location for visiting the historic centre and we stayed $ wonderful nights in a suite which was very large and decorated with beautiful chinese furniture. We had a dinner at the Kebaya restaurant for an excellent course meal and it was the best food that we ate in Penang. It was a lovely experience...
