We stopped in to take a look at the goods in their little shop at the front and couldn't help but ask about the rooms. So glad we did. We spent a few nights here enjoying the peaceful surroundings, wonderful conversation, and delicious food. They only have four rooms, so it made for a very private and peaceful stay. School...

Hotel is located in beautifully renovated traditional Chinese house. You can feel the atmosphere of old times. Hotel was very clean and breakfasts were OK. They give you mineral water every day and clean your room on request. Staff is very helpful and friendly, especially Oli and Jackie. We received flowers from hotel for Valentine’s Day, which was very nice...

You Le Yuen is one of the many new boutique hotels that are springing up in the heritage area of George Town, not all of them successfully. Set in the delightfully named Love Lane it is a refurbished and renovated traditional shophouse. The hotel has 4 rooms/suites and part of the nicely designed ground floor is converted into a dining...

I'm not really one for small boutique hotels, that was before I decided to take the plunge, we booked for 5 nights. There are 4 private rooms and to be honest it wasn't until the last morning that I realised there where other guests staying there. So peaceful and quiet. Location on Love Lane is fantastic, walking distance to a...

Not quiet but for people living in Penang it is a real enrichment to the local scene. You must pre book your dinner in this small, authentic, quaint , private hotel restaurant. It is worth it!!!!!! In this small heritage hotel we had "Indian" dinner. I think it was Indian/Nepalese but it was really a great experience. The freshness of...

Spent the last weekend of July in Georgetown, and called You Le Yuen home for a couple of nights. This place is super intimate- only 4 rooms- so really tiny, but utterly charming. Service was sincere and on point, and the staff more than willing to provide recommendations for sightseeing. Rooms were exactly as described, and well done- nothing ostentatious,...

I stayed here for 5 nights and it was an amazing one. The hotel is beautiful, lots of woods furnishing, cozy, charming, airy and well located. I was upgraded to the Courtyard Duplex Suite, it has a separate living area which is so comfortable and cozy. From my opened window I can hear the soft jazz music playing downstairs and...

This hotel was a very welcoming hotel in the town of Penang. The hotel is located within the Global Heritage area and was within easy walking distance of restaurants and sites. The hotel is unique, we enjoyed the room / suite. The bar, boutique, and overall decor are very comforting. The management were very nice and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our charming 2-storey colonial pre-war shop-house boutique bed & breakfast is the ideal "home away from home" for those seeking a truly personal and home-like cultural living experience. Enjoy a leisurely meal on your private terrace or our indoor courtyard cafe freshly prepared at your request. Read your favourite book, surf the internet or lounge idly with a refreshing beverage in our indoor courtyard garden amongst lush foliage as you gaze at the reflections of water rippling on our linear pond. Nestled between Lebuh Chulia and Lebuh Farquhar, we're the ideal sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the busy main streets. And for the adventurous, we are conveniently located a stone's throw away from Cheung Fatt Tze Mansion, Little India, Fort Cornwallis, and The Goddess of Mercy temple. Be it for business or leisure, You Le Yuen is the idyllic haven you seek during your sojourn in Penang. ... more   less
