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.

    I called to check regarding parking my car & when I entered into the guesthouse, Ying Ling already had my room key ready. I love the ventilation in the ceiling in the otherwise windowless room. Open air private car park next door at RM8 for overnight was very reasonable. Just don't park under the trees. Make sure to drive out b4 8am as its a different operator n they'll charge you RM6 per day if you overstay even for 1 min. Free parking after 6pm but limited marked parking bay along roadside.

    The guesthouse is in a great location! Love lane is full of bars and has a great night time atmosphere! If you find it difficult to sleep I suggest bringing ear plugs as sometimes the music outside can be a little loud.

    Overall, great stay. Jay at the desk is super friendly and helpful. I stayed in a single private room and found it to be comfortable and spacious - but in no ways sound proof. If you are bothered by noise, it might not be for you. For me, it was fine. I was able to teach English online in my room as I was close enough to where the router is. In the evenings, the connection wasn't as strong because more people were on it. My only compliant is that there isn't brighter lighting in the room.

    Very Good

    We had a dorm room which was more than satisfactory. Room was dark so had a good nights sleep mostly other than being woken up by the lights turning on by the owner and other guests late at night. Breakfast area nice though some members of staff were a bit rude to begin with which was weird when others were so welcoming. Private rooms and upstairs looked so much nicer than downstairs and dorms - if I stayed again I would book one of those instead! Best location too.

    Got kept up all night by the loud music that went on until 230am. Rooms were fine. Downstairs only has one shower qnd toilet. Not enough for so many beds. Clean enough. Owner was nice. Too bad about the noise or would be a decent hostel.
