Amazing Location, Staff and Experience”

What a wonderful place to stay. I'll try to break down my review into a few categories Hotel: The building itself is so full of rustic charm and has such an amazing history There are multiple area's to relax and chill, from the pool, the front courtyard and the upstairs lounge The room is clean and comfortable, air con is nice and cold, there is parking onsite and off street motorcycle parking also available (will look to return with my motorcycle club at some point) Staff: The staff at the hotel are super warm and friendly, always ready to provide assistance or recommendations and are extremely knowledgeable not just about the local area but also about the history of the hotel itself. If I have to say anything, the staff made it feel like it was a home more than a hotel, Kudos to them. Location: The location is great, quite central and strategic, loads of things within easy walking distance, from sight seeing, museums and of course the local food and night life. I will be back again!

Beautiful hotel, convenient location, helpful staff”

My family and I decided to break tradition this time round, and stay at a heritage boutique hotel downtown instead of a modern beach hotel. And I have to say, Yeng Keng Hotel exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The hotel building has been beautifully restored. It is complete with all the modern comforts that one would expect from modern hotels, yet it still maintains the rustic charm of its century-old architecture and decor. Conveniently located along Chulia Street, you could hardly get closer to the centre of all that is bustling and beautiful about historic Georgetown, from food to shopping to sight-seeing. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left, the hotel staff have been helpful and courteous. For any traveller who is apprehensive of staying at a hotel that is over a hundred years old, I strongly encourage you to put aside your preconceptions, and give Yeng Keng Hotel a try - you will not be disappointed!

Amazing service, fantastic location”

Our stay was most pleasant in YK Hotel. You will find everything you need nearby, the rooms were clean easily accessible for young children and elderly. The pool was really useful to cool us down at the end of a hot day walk. Breakfast was really good, they change the food everyday, we had Penang laksa, hokkien noodle, chee cheong fun, ban chien kueh, all sorts of nyonya kueh, nasi lemak in banana leaf etc etc. A good spread of fruits and western croissant and bread and cereals too. Staff helped us in ordering Grab taxi most of the time. It was really a very pleasant stay for all of us!

Fantastic service and nice historical building ”

We stayed in Yeng Keng for 3 nights and loved it. It’s a historical building turned into a small hotel. The deco is nice and cosy. Breakfast is served in the restaurant next to the hotel. Good selection of local and western. choices. We also tried their dinner menu. A good choice if you are travelling with children and elderly. The hotel is located in the heart of George Town. There is lots of eatery and a street food market at night. What good about the design of the hotel is that there is courtyard in the front, which kind of keeping the premise off from the busy street but yet still convenient. Staff are all friendly and helpful. We would stay there again if we visit Penang again.

Wonderful jewel right on Chulia Street in Georgetown”

This hotel did not disappoint. A wonderful boutique hotel experience in a heritage building that has been modernized enough to prevent mold and unpleasant features of many old buildings, but retaining its charm and beauty. Terrific staff support, great comfort, solid breakfast, a pool, parking lot, and just a couple minute walk from the restaurants on Love Lane and Campbell Street. Such a wonderful experience!

The location is at the same street as all the night food stalls. Rooms are away from the road. The breakfast... is just epic. If you haven’t tried Peranakan, you should just book dinner at the hotel restaurant. They serve one of the best curry chicken. Every dish they serve illustrates their passion in cooking Peranakan food. The reception staff was so friendly. They would help us with bags and give advice on food places and greet us every time we leave or return to the hotel. Parking is secure even for a Porsche with 24hr security and carpark barrier. We would stay here again!

Good location & Friendly staff. We were greeted with welcome drinks immediately at arrival, we also managed to check in without hassle. Within 5 minutes, we were lead to our room which is located at the ground floor. The ambient light of room is on the dimmer side but it’s good overall. There is also a small pool, my dad enjoyed it. The location is great, it’s walking distance to many local cuisine at Lebuh Kimberly, Chulia street and Lebuh Carnarvon. I would recommend it to smaller travel group and will definitely stay here again next time I come to Penang Georgetown.

Beautiful Boutique Hotel ”

The hotel is very beautiful inside out. In the heart of Georgetown surrounded by all kinds of food and attractions. Right behind the hotel is the famous Nyonya Kuih restaurant. One thing that the hotel may improve. The hotel Yeng Keng cafe kitchen ventilation is blowing directly to the sitting area beside the small swimming pool. Making the sitting area not possible to sit most of the time. Suggest to build the exhaust higher to top of the roof and facing up.

Peaceful, Professional, Authentic - Stay here!”

This lovely heritage hotel is located right in the heart of the old town. There are lots of little bars, restaurants and cafes nearby. The rooms are bright and immaculately clean, and the mattresses are great. Breakfast is not brilliant, but it is good. We love the character and charm of the hotel, with intimate public spaces, often furnished with antiques. The pool is always sparkling clean and refreshing. The bathrooms are modern, with plenty of hot water and water pressure. Of special note is the extremely helpful staff, who are always willing to take the extra step to make guests feel welcome and to see that their needs are met. Special thanks to Allan and Raj, who extended themselves to accommodate our crazy arrival time and late departure.

Perfect Hotel with Friendly Staff”

This hotel is located in the middle of the historical area, so it was very convenient to get to any sightseeing places. As you can see from the appearance of this hotel, it is very nice place to feel historic atmosphere. But what I would like to recommend is their staff. Everyone was freindly and sincere, I could relax and feel like I was visiting my friend's house. I will stay this hotel again when I visit Penang next time.

Ideal location, best service”

Location is strategic and walking distance to local food. Parking is available which is good in Georgetown. We packed lunch and arrive to check in. Hotel staff saw that we haven't had lunch and offered to serve our lunch on plates to be brought to our room. Thanks so much for the room upgrade too! Definitely recommend this place!
