Vacation in Penang during the Christmas period . Spent 2 nights in this beautiful shophouse hotel. Nice breakfast. Great location in Gerogetown as well. One of a kind experience as compared to staying in a conventional multi storey hotel . Staff is also very friendly and cheery.

We had such a smiling happy welcome here when we came in for breakfast, we returned the next day. The food was good, the fresh orange juice delicious. The owner gave us a brochure for the characterful hotel, which looked really lovely.

After a stay for a couple of days in this hotel this November I went on a trip to Thailand and felt myself forced to come back for another two days, since I kind of fell in love with this boutique pearl. The manager is at the same time a serious business man and a very cool guy and his...

Super friendly staff, great location in the heart of old Georgetown, beautiful shop-front building. We had a room with a gorgeous courtyard bathroom but not sure if all the rooms have this. Highly recommended for a unique stay in Georgetown.

Stayed in early November with mum and sister after a couple weeks travelling around Malaysia. CA was hands down the best place we stayed in terms of providing the full package.
