Old Penang Guesthouse is a heritage guesthouse that combines the charm of Penang's yesteryears with modern amenities. Conveniently located in the heart of Georgetown, a UNESCO world heritage site, the guesthouse is a stone's throw from Penang's major historical landmarks and tourist attractions. Old Penang Guesthouse offers amazing value for travelers who seeking for comfortable and unforgettable heritage stay on budget.

Old Penang Guesthouse is a beautifully restored pre-war building in the historic city of Penang, Malaysia. The building is believed to have been constructed more than 80 years ago. It is especially important as an example of a very early shophouse prototype. From the original mosaic-tiled flooring, intricate artwork, inner courtyard and to wooden shuttered windows, every aspect echoes the history of the region.

As a respect of its original design and history, we have retained much of the building's old world charm during the conversion. The design integrates old with new, modern with historic, ensuring that the total experience is one that is authentic, honouring the past while bringing every modern convenience to bear.

All our rooms are air-conditioned, spacious, clean and thoughtfully furnished with modern day amenities. The room is fitted with authentic antique lamps, mirror and decorated with picture by renowned local artist.

The ground floor is a spacious lounge area with central courtyards which sunlight is come into. Most of the guesthouse utilize the floor area by maximizing the number of rooms, however we keep the ground floor with inner courtyards as space for guests to relax and interact. Moreover, it is also one of the way to retain its original design and purpose. You can watch movie, surf internet, drive into book or enjoy tea break here.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This Guest House is located in a very good position. It's very easy to find it, and very convenient to go out for sight seeing or having meals. What's more, it's very clean inside, and I love this guesthouse. I hope to stay in it again when I go to Penang next time.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Old Penang Guesthouse is situated at a comfortable spot along Love Lane. There are motorcycle or bicycle rentals in the vicinity. It is also right smack in the middle of Georgetown so getting around is not difficult.
I stayed in the 12-person mixed dorm. The beds are clean. The mattresses are not hard or too soft, although I prefer harder mattresses. There are no windows in the dorm, making it difficult to tell the time when one wakes up in the morning. There are bed lamps and warm lightings available but when I came back after midnight one day, I was suffering a dilemma whether to turn on the lights and disturb my room-mates (there's no ambient light from the windows), or risk kicking my toes against one of the heavier luggages that I cannot see.
Everything is generally clean, although I think they could increase the frequency of cleaning the toilets. There are only 2 toilets, one on the ground floor, the other on the 2nd floor.
At about 25 Ringgit per night in the mixed dorm, I think the stay is value-for-money, especially when one compares OPG with the other nearby lodgings.
There's a TV lounge that has cable but hardly anyone watches it. A guitar, which no one touched. There are 2 computers and free wifi available. There's also a Canon inkjet printer and you can print at RM0.50 per b&w copy.
The staff are very friendly and they try to help you as much as they can. Please be nice to them.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was truly wonderful stay even at a four-person sharing room for 6 days. Because of well-organized management by an owner, all rooms including shower & toilet were carefully managed for keep clean. And its guesthouse was also located in walking-distance area from/to the main bus station in georgetown for sightseeing, and a big park near seashore for early morning exercise. It was so joyful stay for me despite the first experience to stay such a sharing room.
