Fifteen abandoned double storey shop houses and terrace houses have been painstakingly converted into a very unique art deco boutique hotel, complete with guest rooms, suites, and even an artist’s residence. Located in the heart of downtown Georgetown, this hotel offers artistic flair, beautiful facilities, and great service.
Just a short walk away, the Blue Mansion is waiting to be explored. Dining options and plenty of other historic and cultural sights are minutes away – try Restoran Jaya for roti in the morning and the Red Garden for fantastic nightlife. On-site at the hotel, you can relax in the library, and the courtyard is a beautiful green oasis of calm.
The lodgings include Clarke Terraces for families, Transfer Suites, Hutton rooms, or the roomy Penaga Suite. Most of the Deluxe (Hutton) rooms have great balconies, so make sure to discuss the options with your travel expert. Enjoy the Jacuzzi, recline on the Chinese antique furniture, and admire the artwork on the walls.
We like this boutique hotel for its unique character, history, and for all the painstaking effort that went into its restoration. If you need absolute quiet, the nearby traffic noise might bother you, but you would be hard pressed to find a more interesting boutique hotel in Georgetown, particularly if you have the family in tow.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
