    We stayed here about two years ago; family run place.

    China Tiger - George Town, Penang
    2 suites within a restored merchant house & 2 studio apartments in the heart of Georgetown – Unesco World Heritage Site – Penang, Malaysia.

    When you're there, check my other answer about a place that does the most AMAZING fish head curry. Well worth the effort to find it. almost 5 years ago

    I have two boutique recommendations for you in George Town (which is the best place to stay to explore):

    - 23LoveLane
    - Hotel Penaga

    23Lovelane has just 10 rooms (plus a couple suites nearby), all in antique buildings that have been conserved and restored to the highest standard, plus modern amenities like AC and bathrooms added. They serve a lovely afternoon tea too, included in the rates. You're in the heart of the UNESCO zone here.

    - Hotel Penaga has 45 rooms and is a touch more modern (but still restored old Chinese shop houses). Just outside the UNESCO zone (a couple minutes walk), this hotel also has a lap pool and conveniences like room service. The owners have put a lot of care into ensuring this is a true environmental hotel, plus have really cool art throughout (and a artist in residence program).

    I'm happy to answer any other questions for you!

    I stayed at Super 8 Hotel. Pros: very clean and cheap. I booked Deluxe 2 double beds for 4 persons. We ended up pay USD 7 per person. Cons: a little bit far from main road. You have to walk about 500 meters to the nearest bus stop. almost 5 years ago
