rooms very clean, comfortable and spacious. Staff very friendly and helpful. Worth paying for a room with a balcony. There is a small, very nice, swimming pool but it is right outside the restaurant window and it did feel a bit public when swimming. The food is lovely, do try the truffle soup

Centrally located, with good facilities and great decoration. It was a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The garden is great for afternoon drinks, and it offers a peaceful and tranquil escape from the hustle of the city. My only criticism was with the breakfast, which was very basic.

If you into staying in old architechural buildings with high ceilings, with no buffet breakfast, limited other services, the desk in the room was a table not a desk then maybe this hotel is for you. It was not for me, I could take just for a few days, not a long stay

Stayed two nights at the Penaga hotel. The room was big and nicely furnished. Old style furniture and wooden floor. We had a nice big balcony and a beautiful jacuzzi and spacious shower. Staff was very helpful. Great location.

There is a spa on site which give the most relaxing facials I have ever had. It is walking distance to most areas of georgetown. I would...

A boutique hotel developed from a row of shops and cafes. Situated on the outskirts of the historical centre of George Town with most sights within walking distance. Stops for the local buses, the free shuttle bus and Hop-on Hop-off bus (not recommended, too much waiting around) are a few minutes walk away. Rooms were large with A/C and ceiling...

Had the rooms with the balcony and the decor was a great fusion of the modern and the traditional. It was wonderful coming back to the room (with the jacuzzi, if I may add) after a day spent exploring the streets of Georgetown. The staff also went out of their way to help me arrange for a little surprise birthday...

Very nice hotel though not without some issues, mostly minor. In my room facing the street I found that the street noise was noticable. I know it's an old building but I'm sure that could be improved. The bathroom was quite large, it had a shower cubicle as well as a jacuzzi style bath. Pity the fancy shower was loose...

We had a pleasant stay. The hotel location is good – we walked to the main sights and places we wanted to visit within George Town, and the hotel called a cab for us when we visited Penang Hill. The furnishings and art give a “boutique hotel” feel, and our room had a pleasant small balcony overlooking the back garden...
