We stayed from April 2 to 6, 2017. We had a great stay for 2 nights at their courtyard double room and also 2 nights at the garden suite. Each room is beautiful, functional and very clean. The open areas/courtyard with beautiful furnishings and wall art upstairs and downstairs made the "feel at home" experience. Daily breakfast buffet food and service is excellent at the Yeng Keng cafe and restaurant.The pool is nice and wifi connection is great. All the staff are friendly and accomodating especially Mildred and Trish. We love the fresh flower decoration on our bed for our anniversary treat. Definitely will return with our children next time.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled as a couple

We recently had our third stay in The Yeng Keng Hotel and will always stay at this hotel when we visit Penang. Having lived in Penang in the early 80's, the Yeng Keng brings back positive memories with its heritage building. The rooms, although smallish, are always spotless, its location is fantastic for those wishing to explore Georgetown. All the staff from the Managers, reservation personnel through to the restaurant staff are warm and efficient and are so welcoming. A great place to stay

Room Tip: Views are not necessary, but you can get rooms overlooking their pool

We spent three nights here, but wished it had been longer. Our room was 'small but perfectly formed': very well equipped with a comfortable bed and lots of hot water. The public areas of the building are particularly attractively furnished with lovely plants and quiet seating areas.
The hotel is in a good location for exploring Georgetown.
A bonus is the exceptional restaurant which is all the better for being separate from the hotel. Its colonial style with beautiful wood made it very appealing and indeed it attracts many people not staying in the hotel for its Nonya specialities. Breakfast was excellent, particularly the home-made cinamon rolls.
Clever use of space has enabled the squeezing in of a small pool and a few loungers, which provides a pleasant place to sit outside. The outside seating area at the front was quite sunny when we were there and rather hot.
The service was excellent. I was particularly grateful to the staff for sending on to our next hotel some items which I had left behind. This was dealt with very quickly.

this is a really unique boutique style hotel. the staff were amazing and really helpful. it was our anniversary when we visited and they gave us a lovely cake to celebrate! the pool is small but just perfect to cool down after a day of sightseeing or scootering around the island.

A lovely heritage hotel right in the middle of Chulia Street. Old world feeling! The rooms are not exactly the biggest but then being in Penang you would be probably coming back in the early evening. Chulia Street is quiet by day but if you stroll along it you may well see some ancient craftsmen at work - like the aging tinsmith I chanced upon. And when the sun sets Chulia Street comes alive. Great street food, tons of bars. There is a decent car park at the back of the hotel and bus stops and a convenience store close by. The breakfast was smashing and it was a delight eating 'nonya' delicacies I hadn't had since my youth.
