The hotel invites the guest to escape into an atmosphere of the past colonial times as well as to modern art with the changing exhibitions. Very centrally located but in a quiet environment, visitors can easily reach sightseeing as well as shopping places. Don't miss a fun ride in a rickshaw. But most of it all it is the friendly...

This is a really interesting and very unusual hotel - in the heart of historic Georgetown. It is a short row of 1920s Chinese houses. The end of the row is a coffee shop / restaurant, with the rest being converted into guest suites. What is unusual, though, is that the conversions have been done extremely sensitively. Most of the...

Reviewed 2 December 2015

This is a charming place! The rooms are very chic and spacious, simple and tastefully decorated with what looks like antique furniture – colonial style. The staff is extremely helpful. Food at the restaurant downstairs very tasty as it is the coffee and you can even get room service (always a plus for me when it comes to lazy mornings).

I'm not a hand out 5 stars randomly kinda guy but this place deserves it. From the location, staff, and the throughly unique suite. Needless to say the coffee and breakfast are fantastic. Had one of the downstairs suites with completely private and huge outdoor patio area.
