Absolutely loved this place. It's beautifully done out, and has retained "the old days" atmosphere. Lady serving was really nice & friendly. We had beautiful tuna baguettes & fresh juice for lunch. Would have gone back if we'd been staying longer.

Basic, but don't let the it stop you from staying here. The place is very clean, beds comfortable, shared bathroom has really strong shower, good wifi, and location is smack in the heritage area where all the wall murals are (and easy access to food outlets...within walking distance). Owner Khim is very friendly and accommodating, and allowed us to use...

This is hotel is very basic. It's okay if you're only staying for a night. No tv and internet is pretty slow but it's handy if you only plan to look around George town area. More expensive than next door. Not coming to stay here again in the future.

Comfortable bed, good wi-fi, friendly staff, clean shared bathrooms and toilets, at quite reasonable price (less than RM400 for 3 nights). No breakfast served, but I found out that many hotels of the same type don't serve breakfast. I can totally understand it. With so many chinese coffee shops around the city, why would small hotels bother keep kitchen staff?

Armenian House is situated at a very good location - it is at the heart of the UNESCO heritage part of Georgetown, close to most tourist spots and mural art in that area. We stayed at a private room with ensuite toilet, which is on the second floor, and took some flight of stairs to reach, but it's okay for...
