Thanks to the staff and owners of this establishment, I had a great stay in Penang, due mostly to staying at the Yeng Keng Hotel on Chulia Street, Georgetown, Penang.
Ill be going there again soon, hope that they are still doing a really good job, it'll be good to be there again.

A very nice hotel no issues to report. This hotel has an interesting history of past use and development posted in the room. Property in well decorated and the facilities are maintained to a high standard (no mold to be seen anywhere). Reception staff very pleasant & helpful. Room had both AC & ceiling fan along with full opening window. Good size swimming pool catches the sun most of the day. Breakfast was included and the bar/restaurant menu was not lacking and catered for western & eastern tastes. Hotel has its own off road parking for cars & motor bikes.
Good location easy short walk to various bars, the Hop On Hop Off" bus stop, the Penang Mall & main bus station. I was able to extend with a better rate than available online. Grab taxi service can be arranged at reception.

Room Tip: This hotel is of a colonial style of architecture some people might consider the rooms on the small size view room if possible

Yeng Keng Hotel is an excellent choice at its price point. It is not a high-end boutique hotel and it is not a budget backpacker hotel--it's right in the middle and executes very well at that spot. It is an interesting historic building that is walking distance to all the main historic center sites. Great service from all the staff we interacted with. The hotel was recently renovated and has nice decor in the common areas. Our room was small but clean and functional. We got the package that included transfers to and from the airport and a one hour tri-shaw tour of George Town and I was very glad for both those added benefits, as we had a late night arrival into Penang airport and an early morning departure, and the tri-shaw was a fun way to get oriented to the historic center on our first morning. My only small complaint is that the complimentary breakfast buffet at the connected restaurant was mediocre in quality and variety.

Stayed: February 2017

This hotel is a real gem. Located in a crusty neighborhood of George Town, the hotel stands out as a superb place to stay. The open spaces of the interior, especially on the second level where we stayed, are decorated with valuable antique furniture. We toured a museum that contained similar furniture, but the Yeng Keng furniture was nicer.

The hotel is well located. The staff are eager to help. The hotel is clean and spacious. The swimming pool is small but very nice. Breakfast was good. Sitting on the front courtyard having morning coffee and evening wine was especially enjoyable.

There are only two downsides to the hotel. There are a high number of mosquitoes in the area - bring repellent. Second, the hotel staff have a tendency to leave items in the corners of the second-floor common space - a ladder here, a cot there, a box of cleaning supplies elsewhere. They must have no storage space.

We highly recommend the Yeng Keng.

We stayed two nights in a mansion double. The hotel is set back from the street so it was very quiet both day and night. My wife loved all the Chinese furniture and decor throughout the hotel. Breakfast was good, lots of Malaysian items to try. There is also a nice seating area outside in front of the hotel. Very nice when you get back from exploring Penang!
