燕京酒店座落于 Chulia Street,建于 1800 年初,如今已有大约两百多年的历史,特别的是曾经被印籍回教徒和华人拥有过,它亦曾是住家别墅、广东会馆和海峡英籍华人会馆,所以这里的建筑风格融入了不同文化和背景,设计别具一格。是槟城其中获得世界遗产殊荣的精品酒店。这里的服务也是一流,非常亲切,房间简单干净。想要安静的度假,这里是非常推荐的☺️ recommended hotel if you want to have a short holiday but not recommend for family cos the room is small and whoever stay here is looking for quiet and privacy . Bringing small kids might disturb other guest .

Pretty lil boutique hotel and is strategically located in the city centre. With just walking distance to many cafe & restaurants, at night you will have plenty of hawker stalls along the Chulia street, bars, near to Armenian Street, lil India, family mart and etc. Every corner of the hotel is so picturesque and the staff was very friendly, thoughtful and warm. Room was very clean and cosy. Will recommend this hotel to anyone who plan to travel to Penang and will stay here again next time.

We stayed here three. Ights. This is a lovely hotel. Beautifully Renovated. Very clean and comfortable. The service is first rate. Raj really helped us out and the hotel manager could not have been more attentive and accommodating. The room was very clean Our only criticism is that the bed was a little hard. The parking out the back was very convenient and the location is central to many great sites and restaurants however it is back from the road and very quiet. We will be back!!

This historical building has 200 years of history. Equipped with vintage furniture and deco make you feel like living in a old house. Friendly staff + good environment. they even prepare a cake on my birthday and keep it in mini fridge. It was a surprise to me! Thank you YengKeng team for the effort. Definitely recommended and will stay here again if have chance.
