Armenian Street Hermitage, Penang Malaysia, Western Malaysia
A superbly located heritage home close to the major UNESCO sites of George Town, Penang. With well-appointed rooms incorporating local history, it makes for a very comfortable stay for couples and families.
Penang is a famous port town with fantastic street food, art and culture. From old Chinese temples, to street art tours, to Indian food outlets serving delicious roti Chenai and flamboyant teh tarik (hot milk tea) there is so much to see and do.
The Armenian Street Hermitage offers a characterful and comfortable stay. Whilst not luxurious, it’s a good place to base yourself whilst exploring the various delights of the city. With 92 ensuite bedrooms, for couples and family groups, the hotel is not so big that you feel overwhelmed and small enough to retain a relaxed anonymity.
There is no swimming pool at this hotel but those really interested in the city’s culture may not mind.
Comfort - This is our lead in category. There will generally be a no frills approach and while some will be characterful, some will do exactly what it says on the tin - provide a clean, comfortable and good value place to spend the night. These places are normally 3* hotels.
We arrived back in the UK at 7.00 this morning and I couldn’t wait to thank you for organising such a fabulous holiday for us! Everything went so smoothly and we were really impressed with the quality and style of the hotels you chose for us, the convenient locations, and the local services - absolutely First Class! We had some wonderful food, did some great activities and we particularly enjoyed the Elephant Day which was something we shall remember for the rest of our lives. Also we really enjoyed the trip to the River Kwai and the amazing River Kwai Resotel. I shall certainly recommend your company to anyone who is considering a holiday in South East Asia – thank you again!
