The spacious Loft with 3 king beds was perfect for our family of 5. You feel as if being transported back to centuries past within these walls. Beautifully done, thoughtfully preserved. Yet, modern enough to give you maximum comfort. The lounge, room and especially the bathrooms were super clean. The bed had just the right hardness for a peaceful sleep. The food in Mews Cafe was delicious and you will be spoilt for choice in Lebuh Muntri as well as the adjacent Love Lane that had so many fancy eateries and bars to hang out in. Even the famous Original Nasi Kandar Line Clear is only a 7-minute walk away. The staff at Muntri Mews were friendly and helpful. Everyone was pretty quick to respond from the point of reservation months before your stay to check-out. A point to note though, the Loft had many steps that were quite steep, so this may not be the best choice for families with young children or aged members or those with mobility issues. Will definitely go back to Muntri Mews, or any of their sister hotels. Keep up the good work!…
We had a family wedding to attend and there were 8 of us. We had one of the Heritage House(1) with very generous rooms and communal areas. Facilities were great with easy access to the Mews Cafe and reception to accomodate all our varying needs. Being in the Heritage zone we were able to walk to all the sights, spoilt for choices of cafes, restaurants, bars and street food. The location is perfect for the family with varying tastes and interests. The rooms were very generous in space and the decor were tastefully appointed with great attention to details and thoughtful extras. A wonderful experience for us all in a heritage house that had been restored to its former glory. Thank You Linda and all the Mews Team.
Having visited many places around the world, stayed at many hotels and AirBnB, Muntri Mews is definitely a memorable experience, beautiful boutique hotel full of characters and charm. A restoration of a row of late C19th communal mews for horse carriages to a stunning hotel full of tasteful furnitures and beautiful decorations with architectural details, very comfortable and large room. Owner Chris Ong's passion for preserving unique George Town history and culture shows in every details. Had the opportunity to join his special private tour to learn about Peranakan culture/history and taste of Nyonya cuisine, seeing his amazing private home that can be a history museum of Peranakan home. Can't wait to bring my whole family to visit George town and stay at the hotel again.
Lovely place. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. However, guests driving cars would face a problem as there are not enough car parks. The hotel is situated along a narrow street so taxi and Grab drivers would find it stressful to pick and drop guests. Stressful for guests with bags to load or unload from the vehicle.
With an ideal location, far off the touristic areas, this boutique hotel is most likely one of the best lodging options on the Eastern side of the Penang island. Rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and easy to access. Within a 5 mn walk: motorbike-for-rent shop, restaurants/bars, supermarkets etc.
I stayed there for 3 nights with my mother. We both had a room across the main hotel in the annex which is essentially a townhouse with lounge, courtyards and 3 bedrooms. This is an old place and guests will have to take it for what it is: uneven floors, windows and shutters not or opening or closing well, padlocks on the rooms' doors, antiques (in locked cabinets), black and white pictures on the walls. My mother's room was quite large with 2 beds and up stairs. Fairly squarish room. I had an L shaped room also up some stairs - but narrower ones- with a large and pleasant bathroom area. Once a month the owner invites guests at his townhouse two doors down the road for dinner and a tour of the place and antiques. Of course it is at a cost but it is worth it. Up to 16 guests and no child under 12. The food is from the cafe so good except the rice which is a combination of turmeric rice and herbs and that was amazing. Good company. All nice but to improve: - I asked for an accessible room for my mother. But she had stairs and these 2 massive beds next to each other. So I had to support her in the stairs every time she used them. Also she would have had to climb over the 2nd bed to open the shutters so apart from the bathroom and toilet windows, she had no daylight. - Reception staff never took my bag up the stairs (but did for my mother but she specifically asked for it), I should have kept my tip. - The food at the cafe is good except from the breakfast as the choice was limited and one of the option (the egg whatever way you like it) was boring .... that chicken sausage was horrible. No condiments too. And the Indian breakfast was never available. What about adding a fruit salad, - One evening the cafe was booked for a private party and we didn't know. We were told to book in advance. A bit upset but the manager offered to deliver food to the dining room of the annex. Good solution but we went to the hawker centre nearby. - Beds a bit hard but I am used to it in Asia and the queen mother didn;t complain so acceptable. Check out staff kept asking for feedback. It was sweet. Recommended if you don't have mobility issues.…
Fantastic place. Great service, great rooms and great food. Nice staff too. Nicely appointed rooms. It's a small hotel with not many rooms and that's partly why it is special. It's on a quiet street in George Town, with many of the historical sites within easy walking distance. There are tables outside for meals and a few inside also. The breakfasts were well priced and delicious. The place really creates the ambiance of the Straights Chinese culture. There is one common room - huge - with period furniture. Took many pictures here. Will recommend it to friends coming here.
Beautiful colonial style hotel, well located in George Town of Penang Island, with tastly decorated rooms and a lovely common space, offering a friendly and loving hommey atmosphere. The garden is lovely and the breakfsst is very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
Good points: 1) Good location. 2) Food at Muntri Mews cafe is excellent and a must try. 3) Reasonably clean. 4) Complimentary bottled water Room for improvement: 1) Electrical power down during a particularly hot afternoon with no air conditioning. 2) Had to drag my luggage up during the stairs check in and check out. May not be suitable for some folks. 3) Stairs was narrow, painted black and not lighted at all. Almost missed a step when I checked out before sunrise. Surprisingly another unit had stairs which were well lighted. - 4) Bed is rock solid hard. I prefer hard vs soft mattresses but this is really hard. 5) No telephone in the room to contact the front desk for any issues. Had to go down the stairs, cross the street to inform the front desk of any issues such as the aircon being down. Several years back I visited a friend who stay in Seven Terraces and we had dinner there as well. I was very impressed. This pales in comparison.…
Utterly charming and very comfortable! The rooms are spacious, airy and stylish. Good bathroom facilities, efficient Wi-Fi and air con. Can’t really think of a negative thing to say. The rooms are in an old town house so you also have access to lovely sitting areas.
