Stepping in off Armenian Street we were initially grateful for the amazing air conditioning and welcoming staff. It is definately an escape from the heat and bustle of George Town. If you have the opportunity to stay here take it! 88 Armenian exudes luxury beyond that of larger five star hotel chains. The interior design is bespoke from the baths to the coat hangers and the additional extras are so thoughtful. A menu from which you can choose the bath salts to be used when a bath is run for you, gorgeous Aesop toiletries, complimentry minibar and such a comfy bed. Right in the heart of George Town and directly across from our favourite Kopi and steam buns the location was perfect. It was really so great to escape the heat in such a beautiful space. We travelled with

The architecture is immaculate. The interior design is luxurious. The staffs were great, friendly and helpful. This boutique hotel offers free usage of wifi and provided a smart TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime, an iPad and a bluetooth speaker. The bathroom is huge complete with a deep bath tub, with ceiling rain shower and 2 sinks (just in case one is not enough). The small Aesop bottles of toileteries were complimentary as well. Bath butler service provided from 9am to 10pm. I wished they had toilet bidet though. A Japanese toilet would be a perfect 10.

You will not regret your stay here, I promise. One of the best boutique hotels I've ever stayed at, with great attention to detail, personal touches, and added perks. Personal touches like having a "Bath Butler" service where they draw you a bath with your preferred scents and set up the room/bathroom and leave you treats to enjoy a perfect before bedtime bath, curated snacks and drinks that are complimentary, the way they take a delivery order - if you order food delivery - and prepare it nicely with plates, silverware, bowls, and then serve to your room - all of it makes for a comforting and indulgent stay. The decor is classy, elegant, with gorgeous design elements (you'll die over the elevator and the bathroom, trust me). And you can't beat the location on one of the most

We stayed in the Rodin suite, which is just perfect for a girls trip between best friends. Thoughtful entertainment system with Amazon Prime, Netflix and Spotify, Aesop amenities and a bath butler service makes it easier to spend the afternoon indoors while the sun glares. When you do decide to venture outdoors, everythings just a stone's throw away, from the murals to the cafes to the Chew Jetty - the address is perfect for explorers. The hotel manager would be happy to tell you where to have the best oyster omelette in Penang if you ask, but be sure to dine in the hotel's Copper restaurant at least once. At night, when the streets become quiet, a cocktail at Copper's bar (which is theTop 4 bar of the year in Penang, btw) is perfect.

I stayed at 88 Armenian during the Georgetown Literary Festival 2019. This hotel allowed me to work, entertain, and reflect on many things. Well worth the price - the staff felt like family! I've stayed in many hotels for work and pleasure - 6 star to airbnbs - but 88 tops them all.
