#8 of 156 Specialty lodging in Penang Island
The Frame Guesthouse is three storey heritage shophouse in Georgetown, Penang which previously a frame maker shop. Based on the belief in authenticity, functionality and material that age beautifully, we chose to restore the highly necessary in the guesthouse and hence preserve the rest. Much of this space was left as it was found before the renovation with rough, peeling walls and electrical cables installed on the surface. The guesthouse which is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, near to most of the famous tourist attraction. It is a best accommodation for traveler who looking for unique and unforgettable stay on budget.
