Property Description

The Frame Guesthouse is our latest addition to our guesthouse portfolio since our establishment in 2008.

Situated within charming 3-storey heritage shophouses, formerly housing a frame maker shop, our restoration choices are deeply rooted in authenticity, functionality, and an appreciation for materials that age gracefully.

We prioritized preserving the essential elements of the guesthouse, leaving the existing concrete floors, walls, and surfaces with minimal alterations. Much of the space retains its original character, featuring rough, weathered walls, and even exposed traces of removed electrical appliances.

Moreover, we take pride in our spacious common areas, a unique benefit of our establishment. Our café provides an exceptional opportunity for guests to connect with locals and fellow travelers in Penang.

Located in the vibrant heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, our guesthouse offers close proximity to renowned tourist attractions like Penang’s Famous Street Art, Little India, Chew Jetty, Love Lane, Armenian Street, and more. It is also surrounded by a wide selection of delectable Penang cuisine.

The Frame Guesthouse as an ideal option for budget-conscious travelers looking for a unique and memorable stay.

I stayed in a private room. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it came with a towel. The AC worked very well. There was a mouse one night, but I don’t blame the hostel. Very cool aesthetic all around. Kitchen amenities include electric kettles, microwaves, and a toaster oven. The bathrooms were clean, the showers and toilets were separated, and the water temperature can be increased. There’s lots of hang out space downstairs and there’s also a TV room. I liked it!

在槟城这家青旅最好的选择! 首先它干净,整个设计前卫,前台的工作人员超级帮助人,他们帮助我打印了我的一些材料,非常的热心友好! 我期待我回来槟城的时候继续住在the fram guesthouse,让我感觉到友好友善. 这才是青旅应该有的氛围。

No complaints about this place! The building is cool, basically a warehouse with well nonetheless. Brilliant location, right in the centre and near everything you need. Drinking water available all the time. Some reviews mention staff shortages, but staff were always there during our stay so hopefully this is improving. Would reccommend.
