      The location is superb with local flavour! The room is unique! The stay is totally value for money! A must-try for travellers who wish to be close to the real Penang!

      The entrance/reception is on the obscure side and may be difficult to spot. Some signage may help.

      I loved this place as they only have two suites and we booked them both so it was very private. The staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive and were keen to ensure that we were comfortable. It is beautifully restored and it was fun to stay in an original Penang house. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

      The colonial style of the suite with 2 living areas and balcony shows attention to detail and excellently executed. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable of surrounding area and history. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast superb

      The room I stayed in was lovely and furnished in a style that was both comfortable and sympathetic to the history of the building. However, it was the service provided by Jeremy and Kelvyn--the owners which was really outstanding. It went above and beyond expectations and felt really personal distinguishing the Palanquinn from the other options in Penang.

      My room was on the ground floor and in front of the road so I could hear the traffic. Personally it didn't bother me as I live in the middle of London but I would recommend asking for the room on the other side or upstairs if this is an issue.

      We received a warm welcome by Kelvyn and Jeremy and this set the standard for the whole stay. Excellent hosts & amazing breakfasts!. We stayed in the ground floor room which was clean and spacious, with a nice heritage style design and open style bathroom. The 4 poster bed was comfortable. It seems that jeremy and kelvyn have thought of almost everything, providing excellent coffee and tea (every englishman needs this on his travels!), as well as TV with DVD player, a local sim card to call if you need anything, as well as local foodmaps etc. If you like faceless boring hotel rooms, where you could be in Berlin / London or anywhere, then don't stay here. if you want a high class B&B with character, then this is for you.

      If you go at Chinese New Year (typically) late Jan / Feb then be ready for some fireworks in the evening, but this is the same for everywhere!

      Size of the rooms, big bathroom

      Noise at night, no serious breakfast availability over Chinese New Year (no coffee offered, juices were lemonades only and had to be requested). Room makeup only after request.

      I work in a 4* hotel in the Netherlands. But I could definitly learn something from the hospitality from Jeremy and Kelvyn. We had a fantastic stay at Palanquin! The room was fantastic so beautiful and totally in the english style like the rest of the lovely street where the hotel is located. There is a lot to see in the neighbourhood. The central zone of Georgetown is easy to reach by cab or bus.

      The hosts were wonderful, helpful and friendly. They made a special effort to welcome us and make our stay comfortable and easy. Each morning we were provided a different local breakfast on the terrace and suggestions and arrangements were made for local trips. The rooms were very comfortable, spacious and full of nice touches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palanquinn.

      Autentique place with very nice and big rooms. Staff is also very friendly. The hotel is located in a nice street with colonial houses

      The place is a bit noisy (busy road nearby). The hotel is also not so central located (about 45 minutes walk to the centre), but a taxi is cheap. Also the breakfast was a bit poor. And last but not least: there is not a permanent reception, so if you want to check out early you have to call a phonenumber and wait till someone comes over to do the checkout.

      Kelvyn and Jeremy were the perfect hosts, great information of the building and area. Quality bedding etc made for a very comfortable stay. Great location, close to restaurants, Gurney Plaza shopping centre, an all round a wonderful experience!

      Can't fault this accommodation at all.

      Wonderfull owners and excellent accomodation. The location is also great.

      Just a bit of noise from downstairs if the air on is switched on by guest, other than that it was wonderfull

      Fantastic hotel, we both really enjoyed our stay. Kelvin (one of the owners) and the staff are friendly, very helpful and speak perfect English - they have recommended places to eat, to see and helped us to buy tickets for the bus onwards from Penang and to mail a parcel home. The room is lovely, clean and comfortable, beautiful Balinese furniture and a large, spacious bathroom. This is a small hotel - more of a b&b - and you can either ask the staff to get you breakfast in the morning, or walk around the corner to the local food market for delicious Chinese & Malay breakfast food. The Gurney Drive hawker centre is about 20 minutes easy along the beach front, and there are other places to eat as well. The street is quiet and pleasant, and has very interesting history. Highly recommend this hotel!

      Palanquinn Heritage Suites is a great place to relax just outside of George Town, Penang. It is on a quiet street and just steps from the local bus which runs into George Town and all over the island. The staff was very helpful with directions, suggestions, etc. The breakfast was also fantastic! When my train was running late they texted me instructions to check in which was greatly appreciated. In all a great place to stay!

      Fantastic boutique residence with exceptional and friendly staff. Really took the time to help in any way possible. Would happily recommend staying there if you enjoy highly comfortable boutique residences with a genuine soul!

      Nothing can be disliked lthough you are not in central Georgetown so you need to be aware of this.
