The house is well decorate and 5 rooms. It's maintain the old authentic feel yet the room is bit modern, come with free wifi and kitchen is fully equipped. The down side is lack of packing space and the living room do not have aircon.

I paid to stay in no.12, but turned up to the guesthouse where there was no one in. Once the owner turned up after his neighbour called him, he tried to get me to stay in a windowless, cellar-like room on the ground-floor in no.8. I kicked up a fuss and got moved to no.12 after all, which was so...

We loved the atmosphere of the place, it has an identity, and not just a standard hotel. Clean, clean, clean. You don't hear cars, or any street noise, but walls are thin, if there are other guests may be noisy. Free parking. It is a good place, we recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Penang Old House is a purposed built old-fashioned themed guest house and it is within a 1934 years old heritage building, used to belong to the British, hence its colonial-style double-story tenements. It has an open-planned courtyard which allows natural luminance of sunshine. The concept of this guest house is inspired by the overseas youth hostel. The Penang Old House is strategically located in the central of Georgetown and it is missioned to serve the high demand of foreign students and visitors in Penang. After two months of renovation, refurbishment and sophisticated interior design, The Penang Old House is now opened for business! The Penang Old House is situated along the street with varieties of art galleries, gourmet stalls, souvenir shops as well as a mini-supermarket (7-eleven) not far from here. It is also close to some famous Penang local delicacies such as the green house shrimp noodles (Hokkien Mee) and the Dragon Pearl’s biscuit shop. The nearest bus stop is only a couple of walk away and the public transport link is making life rather convenient to get around in Georgetown. Penang Old House is also located within the Georgetown History district, which was listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008.We also provide Tour guard Car to Airport and Tour Guide With Tour Car Service ... more   less
