The 7 suites of Palm Mansion is restored from a row of 7 pre-war shophouses, each room is meticulously built with hard wood as the timber flooring and the ceiling beams. The old torn down timber is recycled into king size beds ,writing tables and chairs to furnish the entire hotel. Each room has a mezannine floor. What an interesting idea, as nothing goes to waste!!

We were stranded in Penang a few days ago. We went on the ferry from Langkawi to Penang for a visit + planned to return same day. However, we were given wrong info by the ticket seller and missed the return ferry. We had to go + find somewhere to stay for the night. We found the above hotel and the owner was a charming man who was very kind and hospitable. He made us all a couple of complimentary drinks and had a room made up for us. He was so helpful and advised us where to get a good meal and where to get good views of Penang by night etc etc. The room was delightful and this small boutique suite was just the ticket. The staff were very nice and helpful too. Well recommended. Thanks to all. The 3 ladies from UK

Quirky hotel with rooms split loft-style. The manager was funny and very helpful, with plenty of tips on Georgetown and Penang attractions and restaurants. We had a nice stay for 3 nights, but after walking around in the scorching sun we started to dream about a swimming pool, which this hotel is missing. The rooms are big downstairs, but the bed is in the loft area up some pretty steep stairs, which quickly became off limits for our 3-year old. The roads around the hotel are also pretty noisy, courtesy of a couple of popular restaurants and their motorised patrons. Breakfast is across the road in a little street restaurant full of locals, good enough if you are not too picky and are happy to drink tea from a mug that has been used a few too many times before. Location wise the Palm mansion is central and walking distance to pretty much everything. It's pretty safe and secure, with electronic security door at ground level. Mr Chang looked after us with really good tips that saved us money and time.

The service and the length that Mr Chang and Dr Theng went to extend their hospitality was outstanding. They made our stay in Penang very memorable and we would like to thank them for the warmth and services. The owner and staff have definitely provided us fine personalised concierge service during our stay. The suites at the hotel preserved the charm of Penang of yesteryears and are clean, sizeable, high ceiling-ed and quaint. Definitely a good alternative to a hotel, for the space and unique historical background. We especially like that many of the furnitures were repurposed wood from the old structure recovered from when the hotel underwent restoration. In general the ambience of the suite was good however, the AC may not be powerful enough to cool the very high ceiling suites in the peak of an afternoon. We were out most of the day, so it wasn't really a concern for us. Bearing in mind the hotel does not appear to have an elevator therefore may not be suitable for people with accessibility concerns. Nevertheless staffs are more than happy to assist with delivering luggages to suites. Also noteworthy is Palm Mansion's great location and easy access to many of George Town's UNESCO World Heritage attractions. We walked to the Clans Jetty, Little India, Lebuh Armenia, Lebuh Chulia, Love Lane, St George's Church, and the Kwan Im Temple from the hotel. The proximity to some of the yummy local eateries is also a big plus for us.

Great location, great knowledgeable and friendly manager Mr Chang, always happy to help out with directions, things to see and do and where to eat !

Palm Mansion is in a great location. Near to Chulia St and Love Lane for nightlife, but just far enough away to avoid the noise at night. This is very convenient part of Georgetown from which to explore all the main sites while here. JL is a wonderful host who is exceptionally accommodating to his guests needs. I can't recommend this place enough. This is my preferred place to stay while in Penang.
