A superb luxury boutique hotel

Review of 88 Armenian
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 May 2024via mobile
To the many lovely boutique hotels in Georgetown, 88 Armenian is a new jewel to add to the collection.
Converted from a burnt out shop house, the owner and architect has spared no expense to make it stand out.
Pros: Good sized rooms. Great beds, linens, pillows. Stand alone bath tubs with a bath butler menu. Spacious bathrooms with double sinks and large shower stalls. Lovely lighting. Super efficient air cons. Good breakfast sets.
Superb staff service.
Good location.
Cons:
Super efficient aircon. It's really cold and setting it higher only sees it revert to the coldest setting when the electronic lights settings are changed ( several times a day and night). Noise seal could be improved as people in the corridors and downstairs dining can be heard. This didn't bother us too much after 10pm as the hotel is quiet by then.
Hangers in the Bartholey Suite are difficult to use as they are fixed into a high hanger that vertically challenged will have difficulty reaching. We also stayed in the Mackenzie Suite which we liked.
Date of stay: May 2024

Small boutique hotel right in the center of Georgetown. Gen and her team take extemely good care of their guests, small but very nice breakfast, changing on a daily basis. Rooms are equipped with all modern amenities (complementary mini bar, coffee machine, Netflix etc.) but maintain the colonial charme of the original building. Great experience!

We have been to Georgetown but we have never stayed in such an amazing hotel surrounded by so much culture and heritage, much to see and do just within walking distance. The hotel itself and the hotel team were amazing, with such attention to detail and care, bath butler service plus specially brewed iced tea & evening snacks and different breakfast served on our 3D/2N there. 5-star at its best.

From the arrival, with the very friendly staff and the great tips in George Town, every restaurant recommendation was a dream, to the fantastic huge room and the breakfast, everything was great. They even took care of the parking app as we didn't have a Malay number. I can recommend this hotel to anyone without any ifs and buts.
Keep up the good work!

I had a truly memorable stay at 88 Armenia Penang. The loft was wonderfully spacious, and the bathroom setup was impressive. We were pampered with the finest amenities, and the staff, especially KC the matre d, were exceptionally helpful. Belinda patiently planned our street food journey, making our overall experience truly unforgettable.
