What a great experience! The suite I was in was simply amazing and so comfortable, you’d never want to leave the room. The room comes with a bath and bath service, perfect to end the night with.

Overall, great ambience, amazing decor, great service and very comfortable!

This hotel managed to exceed the high expectations and hopes I had from the moment I arrived in my (kindly upgraded) sanctuary, the Rodin room. People look for different things in hotel rooms at different times... if you’re looking for pampering, hours of beautiful sleep, or want/need to hole up somewhere in a cocoon of comfort, 88 Armenian is your place. There’s the huge dreamlike bed, welcome cocktail and free minibar of local delights, the tv stocked with Netflix and whatever you need... and then there’s the bathroom of glory with perfect bath and shower and an absolute wealth of Aesop products. Request the bath butler from the bar downstairs then carry up your glass of wine when it’s all set. Doubtless great for romantic visits but also decadent indulgence if the trip is all for you.
Everything about the room is perfect, with the exception that you can’t open the shutters across the windows yourself. Meaning you’re locked into unnatural light until housekeeping visits. That and there’s no lobby or by- the-window sitting area to relax. But honestly, so many hotels have those features. The bath and bed here are worth those trade offs and the hotel’s location in the absolute heart of the tourist quarter make this a clear winner. Value for price was outstanding - long may that last!
Service from all staff was flawless throughout the stay. Breakfast is excellent. Cocktails in the bar are fine but not the best in town but wine by the glass is excellent value and quality. Will definitely stay here if visiting Georgetown again - or in need of catching up on sleep!

We spent a week at 88 Amernian in December 2019-January 2020 and absolutely loved our stay.

The rooms are beautifully furnished and very spacious. We were in the Rodin Suite, and the large bathroom faced out onto the street. The bath tub is great, and the Bath Butler offered by the hotel is wonderful.

We were so well looked after - a special shout out to Skye.

Breakfast at the hotel was wonderful - fruit, croissants and great choices on the menu. The granola was a particular favourite.

The hotel is also conveniently located in the heart of Georgetown, close to lots of other attractions.

Thank you so much to the wonderful staff at the 88 Armenian!

Stayed here for 7 nights with my girlfriend in the Rodin Room and was impressed from the minute we arrived. The hotel itself is situated in the historic heart of George Town, making it perfect for sightseeing and strolls around the city. The building is a renovated heritage site with only six rooms. Ours was huge, wonderfully lit and featured a spacious bathroom with full size bath. The service was impeccable - particularly from Sky, the Bar Manager - and we enjoyed having breakfast each day in the hotel's stylish restaurant. The owner and staff had clearly thought about every detail. A most memorable experience.

Stepping in off Armenian Street we were initially grateful for the amazing air conditioning and welcoming staff. It is definately an escape from the heat and bustle of George Town. If you have the opportunity to stay here take it!

88 Armenian exudes luxury beyond that of larger five star hotel chains. The interior design is bespoke from the baths to the coat hangers and the additional extras are so thoughtful. A menu from which you can choose the bath salts to be used when a bath is run for you, gorgeous Aesop toiletries, complimentry minibar and such a comfy bed. Right in the heart of George Town and directly across from our favourite Kopi and steam buns the location was perfect.

It was really so great to escape the heat in such a beautiful space. We travelled with our parents and it was heart warming to see how generous the team at 88 Armenian were to them. They are having the holiday of their lifetime and a big part of it is due to our experience at 88 Armenian.

If you are looking for luxury in Penang, this is where you will find it.
