We loved our week at number 10 and would love to return. We've visited Penang many times, but this was to best to be able to stay in a traditional Chinese shophouse which has been given a comfortable makeover. The laneway is a quiet cul de sac of similar shophouses in pretty colours. The neighbours are friendly and like it... More

We have just spent 5 weeks at Green House and loved every second. The location is fantastic and in the heart of beautiful Georgetown. The house itself, a lovely restored heritage house, was spotlessly clean with a thorough weekly housekeeping service. The house is spacious and well equipped and it really felt like we were living a real life in... More

We recently returned from our wonderful trip to Malaysia where we started off with 4 nights in Georgetown in the Green House @ Popus. I liked the accommodation without finding it brilliant. I would ideally rate this place as 3.5 stars but Tripadvisor doesn't offer such an option and my travel partners disagreed with me, hence the rating of 4... More

Was a pleasure to stay a restored georgetown home. It was to large for a solo traveler but would be ideal for a couple or small family. The Interior of the house was well fitted out and it was a very charming place to stay. The location was great and has a far better feel than staying in a large... More

We wanted to see and experience Georgetown more like locals than tourists so we booked this beautifully restored heritage shophouse a stone's thrown from the main police headquarters in the centre of the UNESCO part pf the town. It is in a little cul de sac surrounded by Chinese neighbours and all the sights of Georgetown are in easy walking... More

This is a beautifully restored house, and being there means you are in a home away from home. This is not a hotel, so the services you would expect at a hotel are not provided. Nonetheless, we couldn't have been happier having the space and amenities this house provides. We stayed in number 12. The bottom floor has a huge... More

This is a wonderful house, centrally located in Georgetown but off a quiet lane (and a lane many taxi drivers don't know, so print out the location map first) The building has been beautifully converted and offers a large lounge, large kitchen/dining room and toilet downstairs, and a large bedroom, a smaller single bedroom and large bathroom upstairs.

Very good value for money taking into account the size of the house, appliances etc provided and location. It's about the same price as a room at Traders hotel but at least 4 times the size.
