Stayed here with friends and it was excellent-cultural, heritage, historical, beautiful decor, helpful, friendly and funny staff. Central location in George Town and walkable, a little oasis tucked away. Will go back again and again. Thank you Gushi x

The hotel staffs were very helpful and hotel is in good location. But room was noisy as you could hear people talk from downstairs and upstairs. In addition, the window was not shielded, so we had some mosquito in the room at night

Hi my friend, thanks for your review. As we are preserving the heritage interior of our building, our interior are made of solid wood that may not provide a very strong sound proof. Using cement and concrete may demolish the initial purpose of preserving the heritage look and feel. We will take note about the volume made by guest next to each other in the future. Please accept our sincere apologies for your inconvenience during your stay with us. Your review and suggestion will be noted for further improvement. Much appreciated and have a nice day. Cheers :)

Is comfortable, average place to stay. Cleanliness details could improve. Access is good and its location is fantastic. Air conditioning in room was not usable during the stay and water was cold for one night.

I have just spent 5 nights at Lang Hoose. I had a single room on the 1st floor just behind the reception. The room was clean and of a good size and better priced than anything else I could find similar in Georgetown. The hosts are extremely hospitable and helpful and can assist with anything from laundry to arranging the Thai Visa. The location is 5 minutes walk from some of the best food I have tasted on my travels and 10 minute walk to the mall. I would probably say overall this is one of the best places I have stayed of which there have been many.

A fine stay in a beautifully restored (but eccentrically decorated) old building. The staff are great; helpful, talkative and happy to provide advice on local history and sightseeing. I look forward to visiting again!

We had a triple room for 2 people. The room was very spacious and clean. Good sized bathroom and great shower! The hotel itself is super cool, it's like living in a museum! And the staff are really the best! They were always helpful with restaurant recommendations, taxis etc. The location of the hotel is just perfect! Right next to Armenia street and Little India. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Our short break in Penang was wonderfully complemented by the lovely staff at Lang Hoose; Chew, Guchi and Ngo were friendly, good source of local knowledge and went out of their way to help us make our trip beautifully memorable. The hotel is centrally located for all the Georgetown sights and food places, but in a quiet street, and was the perfect base to return to after a hot, sweaty day out among the crowds. We did not manage to enjoy the rooftop bar but the central koi pond in the lobby was a perfect place to unwind. Just be careful with the steep staircases. We'll happily stay there again if we eventually return to visit Penang.

The staff were very helpful here. We loved our room with the decor. The hotel was located just out of the Unesco zone, a very close walk to attractions such as Armenian Street and some of the famous street art. The bathroom was spacious with a good shower.

Thanks for making this place as pets friendly residence, the hotel is located at the center of George Town, just a few steps to the local attraction such as the art painting walls, you can easily get eateries around the hotel! This is not the first time to visit Penang but this hotel is one of the best I had ever stayed! Chew is the person who make us feel homely, he told us that there will not be any television in the room cause he wants everyone to get together at the lobby(with TV)and spend time with each another!will be back soon, thanks !
