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.

    Very nice staff. My flight was really delayed. I called and staff was so kind. They even waited until 2:30am for me to arrive, making sure I could get into the gate. Upon arrival, they made some last minute accommodations given how exhausted I was. Really nice old building too.

    All staff were really nice and helpful. The guy running the hostel during the night shifts went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I wanted and was just such a nice guy. I don't normally write reviews for hostels and have stayed in them across Thailand and Malaysia, this the best service in a hostel I've been to. The decor is brilliant as well, such a rustic feel that's so different to most hostels I've stayed in prior. Located on the best street for fantastic food and cool bars.

    Nice place in an old colonial building. The staffis s really friendly and helpful and the place was really clean. Great location, with lots of hawkers markets, restaurants and tourist attractions on wlaking distance. The atmosphere was rather quiet inside the hostel. The street itself is really lively with lots bars, but no noise bothered us in the room. The staff also offered earplugs, but we did not see the need for them. Would definitely recommend and come bock another time.

    Really lovely hostel in a great location, stayed in the 12 bed mixed dorm the beds were comfy and had plugs accessible. Real social scene so easy to meet people. Appreciated the fruit included in breakfast! Special thanks to the kind man (didn’t get his name) on the night shift who provided me with an extra blanket as the AC is pretty fierce overnight and I get cold easy!

    Good clean hostel. Bars nearby make it a bit noisy so be cautious if you're a light sleeper. Great location.

    Nice Place. Looks nice. Middle of bar street so lots of food and drinks. Good staff who are helpful. Would send friends or go again. Free good coffee all the time. Price reasonable for room. Nice if they had a TV and not just DVD in common area. Ask for room in BACK as bar noise at night. There was an EXTRA tourist tax that Hostel World did not include. Maybe hostel world problem. I will complain to hostel world. Tax about 10% of room charge.

    There was 24 hour front desk service. Locked gates after midnight. Breakfast available, coffee & toast & fruit. Private room was clean. Music from street was loud and played late. Not a place to stay if you want peace and quiet. There are always people arriving and leaving so quite noisy as the walls are thin and the floors creak as it is an old building. Great location to easily walk downtown Georgetown to tour and lots of places to eat nearby.

    Terrific authentic and atmospheric hostel on love lane. It gets a little loud in the evenings due to its central location, but it’s a beautiful spacious place.

    Good hostel, extremely loud though. They gave us ear plugs but they didn’t do anything. Because it’s such an old building the walls were super thin too. good hostel but wouldn’t recommend if you want a good night sleep

    A new bar went in next door that blasts club music from their OUTDOOR speakers until 3 am. Impossible to sleep.
