Lang Hoose is amazing place with friendly staff. An unusual atmosphere in the style of Georgetown. Very cozy and quiet place. The first time I went there, I was shown that this is a museum. With great pleasure I will return there again. The only little negative - sometimes you can hear the steps of neighbors from above. But the beauty, comfort and uniqueness of this place take over that.

We had to choose this accommodation as there were no other nearby hotels left with rooms n attached bathroom. Else with this cost and no breakfast we would have never chosen. Pros: Double room with bathroom was clean n spacious enough. Bed was clean n comfortable. Good interiors. Location is very good as all street arts are in walking distance. But then there are lots more guest houses in same area. Next time I'll try too book earlier for a better option. Cons: Although we mentioned arrival timings in advance and reached on time, I think they don't bother. Conveniently said 'you have to wait for 30 mins, can't help, staff is out for lunch, room is not ready!' Wow! what a welcome note!We asked if we can get another room just to take little rest or freshn up quickly in that

Hi MG G, We appreciate all your feedback and rating that has been given to us. First of all we would like to mention that the building was build in such a manner and there are lots of rules and regulation we need to get approved for before any renovation is being taken. In our booking we had already mention no breakfast, so we believe that you must have known this before hand. About the waiting issue, due to short handed and fully booked we at Lang Hoose tried our level best to satisfy everyone needs with our limit. As we mention a guesthouse does not operate like a 5 star hotel and staff here are only works from 9 am till 5 pm. We want all our guest to feel like this is their home. Thank you for staying with us and have a good day ahead. Lang Hoose Management

We enjoyed our two night stay at Lang Hoose. It's a beautiful old shop house converted into a truly charming hotel. We loved our room with a romantic four poster bed and comfortable mattress. But keep in mind the building is old and quirky with steep stairs. The wifi was sketchy and we often heard our neighbors. To us, this did not matter. The location is terrific -- near restaurants, a hawker center and art galleries with little traffic at night. If you're willing to overlook the small things in order to experience a very unique hotel this might be for you. Want more travel tips? Please visit our blog at twolostamericans.com

Location is good for discovering Georgetown. It's an old Shophouse remodeled to a guesthouse, with timber floors on the upper two levels. What that means is you have to put up with the footsteps of whoever is living above you - whenever and however often they move around their room. Narrow stairs up and down from the rooms is also part of having a room here. The middle-aged Indian gentleman "Michael" on duty one of the days of our stay had great hospitality skills, was very informative, and made us feel welcome. The staff member on duty most days for the five days we stayed there did not demonstrate any hospitality skills, whatsoever. Answered questions in a functionary way when asked but in the main, did not engage with guests whatsoever making us feel unwelcome and an

I hobbled in here in desperate need of a plaster as I couldn't find a pharmacy anywhere. The owner promptly obliged and also gave us a glass of ice cold water each. He really was a lovely man. If we didn't already have somewhere to stay we would have definitely booked a room here.

Simple, clean and basic room with basic toiletries but comfortable. This old building with wooden floor and staircase can be noisy while walking around the room and climbing the staircase, due to poor sound proof, there is no TV in the room except one in the lobby where it also serve as a cafe. It is in the quiet side of busy heritage area, walking distance to heritage landmark, temples, mosque, mural painting, food heaven, 10 minutes walk to the jetty and bus station where you take the free city area transit (CAT bus) to Komtar for shopping and food.

We stayed at Lang Hoose for one day at the end of our vacation since we had to catch an early flight. For what we paid, this was great value! The hotel is located slightly away from the hustle and bustle on a quiet street. But still close enough to everything that you won't think twice about going out to buy snacks etc. The lobby and rooftop terraces have the most lovely vintage decoration. I was in love with their collection of typewriters, cameras, sewing machines etc. The staff are super friendly and helpful. We booked a car to and fro the airport. The driver was one of the staff and we had an interesting chat in the car. The rooms are also clean and comfortable. The only watch out is that we had a room on the second floor opening onto the courtyard. During the day, the

If you are looking for a quiet stay away from the hustle and bustle, Lang Hoose seems to be ideal! I stayed for 2 nights, supposedly in the room at the attic with shared bathroom. It was tiny but looked super cosy. Unfortunately, there was something wrong with the lights and I had to move downstairs to one with less character but an attached bathroom at no extra charges. Thanks boss! Reception is only available at limited timing - 12pm to 5pm. So works well if you can arrive during this time. Wifi is available but not that great in the rooms. Room is clean and bathroom shower is great as well. Not sure if the staff stays in the hotel overnight but will be good to have someone available for any sudden needs/requests. The only lacking thing is a social common area for guests to
