Ke-lan-tan House, Penang, Malaysia

A little gem of a place for people like me
It's like staying in a well to do relative's house which has been refurbished and updated. Have your mental faculties and five senses stimulated as all around are lovely bits of furniture and rescued or recycled objects put to innovative use. If you can't climb stairs to the second floor ask for one of three ground floor rooms. Quirky and not for those who want the usual highrise type hotel. You can't help bumping into other guests and staff now and then. No en suite but personal bathroom and toilet with your own key at the rear for each room. Lovely small central courtyard like a little oasis of peace and calm, make your Boh tea or instant coffee with grape or strawberry biscuits to sit at the KopiTiam table and chairs to relax a while. The fridge there has Spritzer water and beer to purchase with space to put your own stuff for breakfast or food. No cooking facilities but you would want to eat out in Penang. The Moody Cow cafe just down the road facing the hotel, turn right and turn left, has "Durian Madness" cake, an enormous slice enough for three costing 42 ringgit and gigantic 10' chocolate cookies for 12 ringgit, a must go to cafe.

Authentic old Penang living
Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. They make us feel at home. Family suite was very comfortable. Those who seek for authentic old Penang feel...will love this place. My only disappointment is the detached toilet!
