Wonderfully quaint boutique Hotel, which we initially thought was a bit out of the way but soon discovered that it was smack in the middle of where we wanted to go. The staff were very helpful and courteous and we couldn’t have had a nicer stay. In fact we have joined their loyalty program as we plan to stay there again on our next trip to Penang. You cant have a higher recommendation than that.

A beautiful hotel central to amenities as well as attractions. All staff from the front desk to cleaning staff were awesome, friendly and helpful. I can’t recommend this hotel enough! Best hotel I’ve stayed in so far during my 3 month tour of SE Asia.

We had a wonderful experience at Areca Hotel. The front office desk staff were always very helpful and friendly to us and all guests. The hotel itself is lovely and very well situated. We wish to visit Penang again and when we do we know where we will stay - Areca Hotel.
