“The restaurant was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2017

Passing by we went in for an early evening meal. The choice was limited but good and satisfying. It is sited on the corner so you cannot miss it and it worth seeing the old exhibits at the back of the dining area.

My experience at Ren I Tang was wonderful. The hotel is located in Little India, an ideal spot for great food and site seeing. The women who run the hotel are lovely, and were very helpful with giving recommendations and directions. The rooms are clean and quaint, with air-conditioning and overhead fans. The breakfast is a simple continental breakfast of toast and eggs, and the hotel restaurant offers great smoothies and food throughout the day. I would highly recommend staying here!

We have just returned from a week at Ren I Tang, Georgetown and we can't speak highly enough of the wonderful experience: Incredibly friendly staff who went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible, accommodation in an exquisitely renovated terrace link house with heaps of character, a downstairs cafe/restaurant providing delicious home style cooking, all located in the vibrant and wonderful community of Little India Georgetown. Wouldn't consider staying any where else for our next visit to Georgetown. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Tub room, but sneaking a look at other room types, they all offered their own individual character.

We had a lovely stay here! The place is clean and cozy, and the bed was surprisingly comfortable, especially as we generally prefer softer beds. The atmosphere is very calming and the staff were friendly and accomodating to each of our requests. We didn't realise breakfast was included, which was a delicious surprise. The adjoining cafe is also a great place to spend a chill evening, regardless of whether you prefer a coffee or something stronger. We'll definitely be visiting again next time we find ourselves in Penang.

Strongly recommended for couple that prefer a relaxing hotel. The hotel is well located at the central and it is accessible to go to most of the places. The room is clean and staff are friendly. For those who like dessert can try their chocolate muffin with rum and raisin ice cream, it is awesome!:)
