Stayed in Family Room with attached bathroom & access to rooftop public area.
The guesthouse environment is cool, for those who like selfie or Instagramer, this would be a good hotel for you. tips, next door is a hidden bar for you to chill out. 5mins walk to armenian street

This is a very basic property, so I don't really understand how it could get a Certificate of Excellence. It's true that the building is a heritage shophouse, but in bad shape, badly refurbished and full of old furniture (mind you, not "antique" furniture: just old, battered, common furniture). No TV in the rooms, not enough hot water, no room cleaning service (no curtains in the shower either, so you are doomed to live in a pond during your stay, because they won't clean unless you request it). Bed linen and towels are clean, but look very old, stained and worn. In the other hand, wi-fi was good the air conditioned worked very well, and the location is very good, close to Armenian Street and the Butterworth ferry. It's a very inexpensive hotel, but you may find better in Penang by paying just a couple more bucks.

Hi alfcr,

Thank you for the review and rating. We appreciate your feedback for these. Just to update you that for the room cleaning, we will only enter your room with your permission as majority guest all need privacy. This heritage house do not comes with TV and you need to check your booking under amenities before purchasing with us. That is why we gave a good Wifi over here. For the hot water, we are using the best quality heater and we do service every month and checked it personally its working well. The maximum heating we encounter was 99 degrees which is in good condition. About the price, we already marked the cheapest among others. We hope next time you choose a place for stay, please do a review and read from majority. We have already provide the best what we can from our end and hope you have a good stay while you were here.

A bit difficult to find. Create some noise when walking on the wooden plank. Very steep wooden stair. Wonderful staff, fantastic ambiance, stand-alone bathtub and easy walking distance to most attraction.

Room tip: Fantastic ambience.

The place was absolutely lovely. I was in one of the rooms with a shared bathroom. Although I was sceptical about the shared bathroom at first, it was actually nice. The room is on two levels, the bed being on the attic-like upper level. The stairs to the bed are steep and narrow, though, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who isn't agile. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious enough, and there were two little chairs to lounge in.
The room has wifi, but it disconnects the moment you step out of the room, even to go to the bathroom.
The bathroom is quite spacious and nice, as well.
The staff is lovely, and make you feel quite at home. Although they don't serve any meals, there is a functional kitchen at your disposal.
The best part of the stay was how everything that you would like to see in Georgetown is within walking distance. I never took a taxi or a Grab to any place, but simply walked all over the town.
Loved being here, and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting.

Room tip: The attic rooms are perfect for couples/solo travellers

If you want to escape to the cozy, nice, stylish place you must be here!
It something different, but so lovely and special! It was our best stay during our travel in Malaysia.Good price, clean room and bathroom, kind helpful owner. He stored our luggage after check out until our leaving. Free coffee, tea, drinking water- self bar. You can use toaster, microwave, hairdryer.
Again in Georgetown? Definitely here! Thank you Lang Hoose.
