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

    Really enjoyed our stay here! Location was great. Right beside the bars but you couldn't hear any noise from the dorm

    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.

    This was my second time staying here and I enjoyed my stay. You really can’t beat being right on love lane if you are planning to go out at night. This time I stayed in the female dorm rather than a private room and my only complaint is that on the bottom bunk you don’t really have space to sit up and there is no light for your bunk since you only have one outlet. I hit my head a few times because of the limited space. Opt for the top bunk. If you’re looking to sleep early don’t stay here lol

    This was a really nice hostel, with really lovely staff however it's proximity to the bars meant that it was impossible to get to sleep due to the noise. Could hear the band as though they were in the room with me.

    Perfect location, breakfast was great every morning, staff couldn’t do enough and the beds were comfortable, only issue was the lockers for your valuables was very small but would definitely stay here again when I return to Penang.

    Fabulous

    This was a super old guest house RIGHT on Love Lane, which is full of shops and bars. However, it was super loud. We stayed in a private room with no windows, and there were gaps in the floor boards to the lounge below. Every night, the live music outside began at 10pm and went for hours, even on weekdays (super loud). Breakfast was normal toast and cereal and coffee/tea. Staff helped when prompted but left reception unattended when taking lunch breaks. Bathrooms were clean and spacious.

    Very cool hostel with everything you need. Sadly I did have some flip flops stolen from the downstairs common area, which wasn’t great but not the end of the world. Apart from that the stay was very enjoyable. Great location and twin room was comfortable and in good condition.

    Very Good

    We had issues with bed bugs whilst staying here. The woman was very apologetic about it, stating she would sort out the rooms for us and refunded us the cost of washing our clothes. Upon arriving back however it was clear she hadn't done much except put down some repellent and changed our sheets. This resulted in us being bitten for the second night. We feel she should have fumigated it straight away. This was a shame as was a pretty lovely hostel with great breakfast and location.

    Pretty basic facilities (e.g. kitchen, breakfast space). No atmosphere. Communal area plain and uninviting. Limited showers and toilets for the number of rooms. Loud neighbourhood.
