If you are looking to stay in the heart of George Town with everything at your feet, this place is perfect!! Hiring a bike, walking or finding a rickshaw are all very easily done from this space. The options for fantastic cafe food, coffee or local market food are numerous and…

Gdi's place is replete with character and steeped in history. It is suitable for couples who are adventurous and desire to immerse themselves in a cultural experience. Even though our bed did not come with a mosquito net as reflected in the picture, Gdi kindly provided mosquito c…

It has been a pleasure hosting you both too. Lately due to the more than usual rainfall, we do noticed an increase in mosquitoes in town. Apart from the spray, we will put back a new mosquito net now we found and ordered one that fits our customed bed size. Apology if it has caused some inconvenience. to you.

Good location, authentic shophouse. Communication went smoothly. Not a classical Airbnb, rather a business. Price quite high for what you get. Bed is without mosquito net (we chose the place because of the net displayed in pictures). Were bitten by mosquitos quite badly. When it …

Flora and friend were looking for discounts even theirs was a short stay, which we have politely refused. While checking-in they came into the house with their shoes on and placed them on our dining table. They were also reluctant to make sure our home is properly secured, we have never met anyone who show so much disrespect/ insensitivity to their host. We gave you a clean home, my mother washed and made the bed for your stay. But you left the used, soaking wet towels all over the place. Also, left the sheets and our home very untidy and misplaced our things everywhere in the house. Why would you do this to your host who provided you their home? They also asked for some upscale steak restaurants in town, but later complaint about the price they have to pay for even though they have enjoyed a great evening there. Georgetown is a multicultural city, so prayers from different religions co-exist here. If you dislike cultural aspects, then Georgetown is probably not the right destination for you.

We were in Penang for a weekend getaway and really enjoyed our stay. It was a unique experience in the shophouse, especially with the high ceilings, outdoor shower, rooftop and airwell features. The place was also well located within walking distance of almost all the attractions…
