East Indies Mansion, Penang, Malaysia

Great peaceful and classic heritage building
My only complaint would be that there should have been a lamp on the nightstand and a small window or transom for natural light would have made the room perfect.

The Mansion is located along a side road on the boundary of Little India. The Nutmeg suites are on the ground floor, and because the flooring is wooden, footsteps from the upper floor can be easily heard throughout the day and night. Wifi was very weak in the room. Towels were not changed by housekeeping, and only upon request. The only good thing is that the mansion is centrally located, and within walking distance to most attractions in Georgetown.

A stay to remember...
The service is what sets this accommodation apart from the many others I have stayed in the past with a special thanks to Jess, Linda and Vijay for going out their way to make me feel at home. The accommodation itself is a 250 year old heritage building thus comes with many of its original features and character still remaining. It has a sense of a calm ambiance which is a nice change from the hustle and bustle of Little India where it is situated which means you get the best of both worlds. We stayed in the Cinnamon room situated at front of property made up over two floors (with interconnecting spiral staircase) double beds on each floor (bathroom situated on 1st floor). The only improvement I would make here is that they need an aircon on the ground floor of the room (currently only upper floor of the room has aircon unit but Jess helped us with a temporary air cooler) as it can get really hot at night, both floors do come with ceiling fans though.
