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.

    Great location in the heart of historic Georgetown. Free breakfast which consisted on cereal, toast, fruit and tea and coffee so it was ideal for me. Staff were lovely and willing to help with anything you need. The building is lovely with places to socialise or just chill out. Very clean and comfortable. Shared bathroom was always clean and the shower was good. Ask for a room at the back as it can be noisy at night. Would stay there again.

    I loved the layout of the hostel, such a beautiful colonial style building. The staff was very friendly and the hostel was easy to find. The room was clean. You may ask for a room towards the back of the hostel because it can get very loud with the music on the street, but nothing ear plugs can’t fix. Thank you very much for the nice stay!

    I stayed here two years ago and it’s still really great! A little loud on the weekend nights but they have earplugs. Also their credit card machine was broken. But the staff are nice and the location is great! Look for the Kang Tao guide in town for excellent recommendations and The Ais is my favorite ice cream in the world. I recommend staying here! It’s frequently cleaned.

    The hostel is great but it was a little empty at times. More Malaysians should stay here to support the establishment through the lockdown.

    The lady on reception was really nice & helpful. However the 12 bed dorm was not great. My plug kept not working, the bed was a bit wobbly/not very comfy, my light by my bed didn’t work either. It was clean & had a good communal area. Breakfast was fine. It’s located on Love Lane so was very noisy at night.

    Was really disappointed with my room. I stayed in the female dorm room and it stank like mould and had no window or ventilation. The bed was also extremely uncomfortable and had springs sticking out of it. The hostel is in a good location and included breakfast was good, just the room was a big let down

    the place is not bad, but it's located at the most loudest area in Penang, if you stay in any room closer to the street there's no way you will be able to Sleep. There's a lot of clubs with loud music, and drunk people with cars and music at high volumen right in front of the hostel all night long (until 7 am) and Leon Dance practicing with drums. not their fault just the location, is you stay here ask for a room in the back, but you won't be able to have internet in your room.
