Both rooms are located on the first floor, and access is only from wooden stair. Not suitable for wheelchair. Drinking water is given unlimited. The only missing point is that mosquito may get into the bedroom from bathroom. Breakfast is not...

Lovely homestay in an cozy environment. Hosts, kelvin and his wife were very hospitable and friendly. Rooms were well kept with a nostalgic feel with attention paid to the decorations. Stayed in the loft suite, with a living room to chill (sofa bed and lounge-couch). Location is 40 mins walk / 15 mins taxi from Georgetown and 20mins walk from...

This is the 2nd time that I'm here. Stayed here about a year ago and just loved this place. Best thing is that even though it has been a year, everything is looks and feels the same, the rooms, the staff...no regrets. Very convenient location, especially for food and it's just a short walk away. This will be my first...

We stayed in the downstairs Terrace. Spacious bedroom and spacious bathroom, high ceilings and great character. There was even a small sitting area outside where you could enjoy a coffee and the heritage nature of the street (all similar 2-storey character houses). Quiet street, especially at night. When we arrived Jennifer told us about the great eating spots within waking...

Located on a heritage street just out of the bustle of Georgetown. Close to markets, street food, shopping and transport just around the corner, Palanquinn was an excellent place to rest and recover from visiting all the sights to see in Penang. Rooms were comfortable and spacious with excellent AC and all you need. Special mention to Jennifer and Kelvyn...

We had an extended stay at Palanquinn in the loft and really enjoyed it. The staff was exceptional and friendly, helping us with many things. The street is a bit noisy during the day but is quiet at night. There are many great eating places close by, a grocery store, and not far from Gurney Drive. We preferred to stay...

Lovely place located rather far from the busy centre, but bus stop just around the corner. Very good street restaurants and markets near the hotel. We found this spacious place with pleasant atmosphere just right for us - two adults and one kid. The staff was extremelly helpful.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Palanquinn. Jennifer and Kelvyn go out of their way to insure the comforts of their guests. The property is located about a 5-10 minute bus ride out of the busy part of Georgetown, but the bus stop is an easy 2-5 minute walk away. It's located on a quiet street, but...
