Out of 6 hotels visited in Malaysia, this was the best one. With limited number of rooms, basic but yet functional amenities & correct-matching decoration, it allows anyone to feel honored to stay on an heritage site. I personally loved the bathroom amenities, especially the 100% natural soap.
And WiFi was good enough for me to work at distance, just missed a desk in room.
The big plus is that staff was ultra friendly and down to earth: should you just pass-by you wouldn't tell that they are working here!
Location is really great, at an equal distance from any place of interest in George town and in a very lively neighborhood at night - Little India, still not noisy for early sleepers!
Breakfast might look simplified, but it reflect the relaxed atmosphere of the premises and believe us we got enough energy to keep walking afterwards from noon till 8 pm.
Would recommend to anyone we'll meet in the future, except maybe for those travelling with young kids and those that just don't care about history.
Our tip is to get the address ready for taxi driver (ours didn't know the place which ultimately turn out to be an auspicious sign for an intimate stay) or simply call reception to announce your arrival.
We stayed 2 nights and honestly that was just way too short to enjoy all what Penang Island could offer to you: definitely would come back!More
