    During our recent stay, Alan went above and beyond to ensure that our requests were handled efficiently and that we felt heard and valued as guests. His professionalism and dedication to his role did not go unnoticed, and it significantly contributed to the positive experience we had during our stay. Exploring the local culinary scene, including Teksen Restaurant, Plus Eatery Cafe, Uncle Lim’s Kacang Tumbuk, and many others, was a true highlight of our trip. Having such a diverse selection of dining options nearby added immense value to our stay. Thank you for providing us with a comfortable and convenient accommodation experience. We look forward to visiting again and indulging in more of the delicious offerings near your hotel.

    UNESCO site, old buildings well kept, very clean streets all around. Friendly neighborhood, most business operators are very welcoming too. CAT Free shuttle bus service is excellent. We had great time visiting Kek Lok Si, The Habitat, Penang Hill, Peranakan Museum Penang, Blue Mansion, War Museum. "The Top" at Komtar is very disappointed visit though, staff are not welcoming, very bad attitude. facility around is poor too, access to entrance is somehow confusing. Overpriced & not worth the visit. The city council should pay serious attention in maintaining walkway of shoplots as we noticed many of the shop operator blocked their front walkway by using huge pots & plants, chairs, signboard, motorcycles and so on, forcing pedestrians to walk on the road side & fight with oncoming traffic, which already packed with double parked cars, potentially causing unwanted accident, this to me is totally unacceptable in such a beautiful city. Tourism board/City council should erect more signboard for main tourist attractions too, it definitely helps tourists to walk around.

    Charming city with a long history.

    Charming city with a long history. The local food is amazing! Try the hawker stalls, local nyonya food/ restaurants. But if you want something fancier like modern western food, there are many new restaurants opened by the younger generation. Lots of coffee cafes operated by young people and they are great! It is easy to get around Penang in a Grab, and cheap too. Spend 1/2 day in Penang Hill - take the train up. Its only 4.5 min over a 2 km steep climb. The visit is worth it.

    Georgetown was delightful. Full of old-world Asian charm. The street food was amazing. If you like pristine places, I would recommend Singapore. We preferred Penang Island to Singapore as there weren't as many cameras and rules mind you.

    The two large historic mansions - Cheong Fatt Tze and the

    The two large historic mansions - Cheong Fatt Tze and the Pinang Peranakan Mansion - are fabulous, especially the former, also known as the Blue Mansion. Plenty of information about the history of Penang as well as some really beautiful artefacts to look at. The Penang War Museum was also well worth the excursion - it's huge and also full of historical information about the various conflicts that have affected the area, but particularly the occupation by the Japanese in the second world war, all set within the amazing fortifications built by the British. The old town of Penang is interesting to wander around - but beware, it was hot season and there is very little shade to be found. I really wish I'd had an umbrella as well as my hat and long trousers and long sleeves. There is a really strong emphasis on street food here and it is of varying quality. A long queue doesn not necessarily indicate this is a good restaurant - it just means that it's been featured by someone online. So look at the food yourself and judge your own instincts if you think something looks worth trying. Auntie Gaek Leen's restaurant was the most interesting we tried - really lovely food.

    Having stayed at Muntri Mews previously, we decided to make a booking for Noordin Mews for our next trip to Penang and it was a great choice. The location is accessible and you can walk to various hotspots in Georgetown with ease, the staff is friendly and very accommodating and the hotel itself is clean and extremely pleasant. Recommended! Go for their Asian selection for breakfast, the food is very tasty. Do note: this hotel is pet friendly, so there are pets roaming around on the hotel premises during the day.

    Well-maintained heritage house in the middle of all the best places to eat in George Town! The real asset of Betel Nut Lodge though is the owner himself who told us wonderful stories of George Town, of turning his teenage dream of running a hotel a reality and who was also kind enough to prepare a map of all the must eats in George Town. Hands down would definitely, definitely stay here again the next time we come for a visit!

    The hotel is located within the town area. Which is very convenient for tourist to walk to most attractions within George Town. Easy to walk towards the Chow Rasta Market, Komtar, and a kilometer away to the Esplanade walking distance. In terms of the hotel outlook, I would say it's good not the best. Room cleanliness is just great. The transparent elevator is just bonkers.
