This hotel is for the discerning traveller who enjoys understated elegance while being located in the heart of Georgetown's vibrant old China town, where things have little changed in several hundred years; for the spice, smells and hum of the east this is the authentic place to be for the traveller who does NOT want the big homogenised and soulless hotel experience. At Campbell house you know you are in a foreign and exotic country and enjoyment of the Asian experience starts right outside the front door by rickshaw or by foot; no need for long taxi rides or buses!
The rooms have the understated colonial chic that is the mark of this establishment. everything is refined, elegant, spotless. The bathrooms feature the classic style of tiling which was original to the building before its immaculate renovation but the plumbing provides the best of modern showers with a wide plate rain forest type fall of water.
The matresses at least equal the most comfortable and sleep inducing in my life's experience while the linen and room fabrics are exquisite. The decor of each room varies but the understated colonial chic, four poster beds, wooden floors, louvred windows, and retro ceiling fans [backed up by air-con] are universal themes.
The hotel is backed up by a fantastic Italian understated taverna-chic style restaurant, with great food at great value, for the moments when you are dim sum-ed, noodled or curried out. [see fab restaurant reviews for Il Bacaro at Campbell house]. Breakfasts are also a real treat. The hotel, constrained by its historic building and location, is fairly short on ammenities or common spaces but guests come here because the ammenity of old China town and little India is right on their doorstep.
