A very pleasant experience overall. The location is excellent to experience Georgetown first hand. The bedroom downstairs is beautiful and quiet. Nice upstairs bedroom but more narrow and next to the street. So not ideal from the point of view of noise, but bearable.

We stayed here for three nights with two young children. Location was fantastic, right great street food, coffee, love lane and easy to access via taxi. Only issues we had was with the stairs not really being suitable for kids (super steep) and with noise - Saturday night was so noisy with music pumping loudly till 4am. Street noise in the room upstairs (facing the street) was quite loud also. Overall it would be a great place to stay if you were heading out and not fussed about noise, probably wouldn't recommend for families with young children.

Location is fantastic. Guan's place is near all the places of local food, western food, place to chill out and most of the place of interest was all within walking vicinity. There are a lot of places for reflexology and massage. There is even a coffee cafe called Pitstop which was listed as one of the 23 must visit coffee cafe opposite Guan's place. Fort Cornwallis is just 20 minites walk from here. So is Penang Road Famous Teochew Cendol, Toh Soon Cafe, which is Penang CM's favourite coffee place with toast bread. Place cleanliness was good. If you like old and heritage place, this is definitely for you. Staffs are friendly and helpful.

The place is excellent! Everything is just like the photoes showed. Love the interior and decoration very much. Close to many local foods and famous tourist attraction. It is so convenient and we really enjoy the stay. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.

Great location, interesting interior,display and furniture make the house look like a museum of the old time. We found the bed sheet was not replaced on the first night, but the host has asked the cleaner to change them on the next morning. The house is nicely air-conditioned.

Guan's place is very clean and centrally located - within walking distance to many of the tourist attractions and good food in town. The unit was beautifully furnished with hot water, coffee and tea provided. Upon arriving, there was even a note stating there was simple complimentary breakfast provided next door each morning. When contacted, Guan was very prompt in his responses and also very kind to make up an additional bed for our 5th occupant in the bedroom upstairs. However, a few areas that could have been improved would be the lack of noise insulation which allowed even the tiniest of sound to travel into the bedroom at night. Additionally, the wifi was very slow and the line constantly broke during our stay. Finally, a heads up that there would be a cleaner entering the unit between 10am - 2pm would have been great. It really took us by surprise when we came back to find that someone had entered the unit as it's not common to get cleaning services in abnbs unless it's a long stay. Apart from that, if you are a light sleeper and looking for a centrally located, beautifully peranakan decorated unit, I would recommend Guan's place.
