Booked "The Loft" room for an overnight stay on a Friday for something different. Great service, location & room. Overall the restoration of this hotel is of very high standard as you'd expect it to be as one of the more expensive options in George Town. I think the value is definitely there though. The hotel is right in the action of the old town and you are minutes away from Chulia St. with all its bars / cafes / hawkers & restaurants. Had a fantastic night out and will stay again. Keep up the good work.

Breakfast is included and was fantastic. Its A la Carte so you don't have the "usual" luke warm bai marie set up. The smoked salmon eggs benedict I had were perfect, the fruit platter very fresh & the croissants delicious and fresh. Will try & remember to write up a review under the Italian restaurant where you eat breakfast.

Overall great value and worth treating yourself.

Beautiful boutique hotel. Loved the fact that the restoration was so true to the historical character of Georgetown but at the same time accomodating the tastebuds of Westerners with the Italian restaurant and a nespresso machine in the room. We didn't try the restaurant as on our last day it was booked for a function. However the breakfast was amazing. The best I've ever had at a hotel. You can choose anything from the menu (wish I had room enough to try it all). We opted for the smoked salmon eggs benedict. Much prefered this style of breakfast to the usual buffets of typically large but low quality choices.

Dinner was fantastic last night at this quaint hotel, it was cooked to perfection. It was nice to have a different menu after eating Chinese for the last week, so a welcome meal was had by both my husband and my self, thank you.

We liked the idea of taking the shoes off before you go upstairs to the rooms , the rooms were very clean and had great character ! We loved the library area where you can relax and read with your choice of drinks , the rooms even have mobile chargers which I was very pleased to find !!

Stayed 3 nights in the room named INDOCHINE. Very comfortable bed and pillows. BUT there is a small step down from the bed area to the rest of the room. Not being careful enough, I missed the step twice and almost fell, so I had to put my baggage by the step to remind me about it.

Nardya and Roberto, owners of the hotel were wonderful hosts, while the Reception Staff and restaurant and room staff were so pleasant, friendly and helpful.

We were offered a wide range of items for breakfast. Their croissants were so good!
We had a good Italian dinner at their restaurant one night. Also, snacks were brought to our room every afternoon.

Will stay there again next time we go to Penang. It is so well located --- near interesting shops, restaurants, and places of interest.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the first floor because there are no elevators.
