Travellers' Choice
Muntri Mews is affordable luxury accommodation for today's flashpacker located in the heart of Georgetown the UNESCO world heritage site. Every room comes with spacious lounge areas opening out to the Verandah upstairs or to the lush private tropical garden downstairs. Muntri Street has one of the best-preserved rows of townhouse residence in Malaysia. An elegant expression of 19th-century straits Chinese architecture, equivalent to Singapore Emerald Hill. these grand terraces invariably had mew- private stables for horse carriages, with staff quarters upstairs which then became a garage for motor cars during the Edwardian Era.

Very friendly, clean and professionally efficient. We really enjoyed our stay here in Muntri News, a stylishly renovated old Penang home very close to the Heritage Trail and old town.. all within walking distance.

Friendly and well located, this hotel is quirky but comfortable. The building is a conversion from the old stables used by the large house on the other side of the mews. The mews itself is well planted and decorated with chinese lanterns and serves as an outside seating area. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was pleasingly different and simple compared with the usual buffet style hotel fare. We loved it.

This is the 4th time I have stayed at the Muntri Mews and the experience never disappoints. Very traditional Malaysian style rooms and decor, much nicer experience than the chain hotels if you want to experience true Malaysian culture and style. The staff were kind, courteous and helpful. We booked return transfer through the hotel as well.

Pleasant boutique hotel. Spacious rooms and tastefully decorated. Restroom was impeccable. Hospitality/reception staff has a room for improvement. Made me feel like an unwelcome (non-paying) guest and condescending like a teacher to a student. Would not return nor recommend.

Great stay as expected. Hotel/rooms/bathroom all Good. Very clean. Very cozy relaxing stay. Prime area, everything just walking distance nearby. Staff all friendly and helpful. Hotel maintained the origins of history, this what makes this place special. Only street parking is available in front of hotel,but public parking available nearby. TV channels is very limited, hope can upgrade with more channels. Thank you Muntri Mews team for the wonderful stay.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Muntri Mews. This hotel has been created with cultural sensitivity, attention to detail, and much love. The restorations, some parts to a museum-like quality, capture a delightful memory & spirit of gracious Peranakan living. The elegant decor of the common spaces show off its magnificence in generous yet relaxed social spaces, lined with intricate artwork & artifacts. The staff welcomed us & served us with warmth & hospitality. At our departure, they even noted my recent birthday and honored me with a little celebration, in true Peranakan hospitality! The different room offerings gave us options. Our (detached) shophouse unit was more casual, and the price more suited to our budget. The simplicity & ease of our Loft Room with open plan layout was perfect for our gathering of friends. Fresh clean bedding juxtaposed against the older floorboards & wood shutters gave it a quaint, old-world character which I liked. The abundance of gathering spaces outside our rooms, reflective of a typical Peranakan home, makes this a good family or group vacation destination. We are already thinking of gathering more friends for our next trip here! We came to Penang to experience the heritage of this wonderful city. Muntri Mews is centrally located in the heart of Georgetown, walkable and close to restaurants & shops. Much like the city itself, where many parts still remain old & unrestored, I feel it is wonderful to see this collection of buildings of Muntri Mews given a second life, true to its history & heritage. My experience at the Mews was delightful & memorable.

Second time stayed here. The staff are very welcoming and attentive. The room nicely separates sleeping area from seating area in front of TV; bed is huge and comfy; shower is strong, water heats up fast. I enjoyed the food here even though we wanted to sample Penang's well known culinary delights.

I stayed at Muntri Mews ten years ago and loved it so was delighted to find it is still lovely. The rooms are perfect, the bed comfortable, the bath beautifully tiled and fully functional. But is is the details that make them so appealing: a comfortable couch, a useful little desk, a hand quilted bed cover. A tea table with two chairs. Very good food is available in the cozy dining room and patio, and the included breakfast is delicious. But as with most places it is the staff that either makes or breaks a place and the wonderful people at Muntri Mews went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we might want including a great driver.

Muntri Mews was an amazing step back to an old time Malay house with all modern amenities. Such a special experience. You could imagine a wealthy family living and entertaining there. The location was just right. A couple of blocks away is the bar and nighttime street. Across the street is the best bar in town - Mish Mash. Just a lovely BnB.
