Property Description

Old Penang Guesthouse is a heritage guesthouse that combines the charm of Penang's yesteryears with modern amenities. Conveniently located in the heart of Georgetown, a UNESCO world heritage site, the guesthouse is a stone's throw from Penang's major historical landmarks and tourist attractions. Old Penang Guesthouse offers amazing value for travelers who seeking for comfortable and unforgettable heritage stay on budget.

Old Penang Guesthouse is a beautifully restored pre-war building in the historic city of Penang, Malaysia. The building is believed to have been constructed more than 100 years ago. It is especially important as an example of a very early shophouse prototype. From the original mosaic-tiled flooring, intricate artwork, inner courtyard and to wooden shuttered windows, every aspect echoes the history of the region.

As a respect of its original design and history, we have retained much of the building's old world charm during the conversion. The design integrates old with new, modern with historic, ensuring that the total experience is one that is authentic, honouring the past while bringing every modern convenience to bear.

All our rooms are air-conditioned, spacious, clean and thoughtfully furnished with modern day amenities. The room is fitted with authentic antique lamps, mirror and decorated with picture by renowned local artist.

The ground floor is a spacious lounge area with central courtyards which sunlight is come into. Most of the guesthouse utilize the floor area by maximizing the number of rooms, however we keep the ground floor with inner courtyards as space for guests to relax and interact. Moreover, it is also one of the way to retain its original design and purpose. You can watch movie, surf internet, drive into book or enjoy tea break here.

- Breakfast included

    It's an ok place. The single room felt like a prison cell. No character. For the money what can you expect. The breakfast is toast and coffee with some fruit. The location is right in the party area of Georgetown. Nice staff here. Social atmosphere is mid range.

    Good

    It's a guesthouse and not really a hostel. Only 2 dorms (4female and 10mixed) and as a solo traveller you never meet anyone. Most of guests are couples or friends in private rooms. Breakfast is simple with toast and jam. Free drinking water available! Rooms don't have windows and AC is super cold! Lockers are too small to put a little backpack in. It's located on love lane so you hear a lot of noises until night time. Would not recommend it.

    The location is fantastic and it's a fairly cheap place to stay, but the facilities are not great. The dorm room was freezing and there was no natural light, but staff gave me an extra blanket, so that was nice. The bedding was not very clean, and the neither were the bathrooms. Beds were not comfortable and no privacy. There are lockers but they are outside the dorm room and they do not provide locks. Staff was not overly friendly and the atmosphere was not good for meeting fellow travelers.
