A delightful week at the Areca Hotel!
We spent 7 nights at this new hotel, and were very pleased with how convenient and comfortable it was. We were within walking distance of the bus station, shopping areas, mansions, and other sights. The service from the friendly staff was truly excellent! This is a hidden gem but deserves to become well-known. Looking forward to a return visit in the future. Thank you!

If you need a heritage hotel, to match your destination of George Town, look no further. Newly renovated hotel with all of the modern luxuries still maintained the old flair of a private estate lodging. Very welcoming, helpful and a personalized service is making your stay an enjoyable experience. The managers Mrs. and Mr. Othman, their staff could not have been more helpful, even flooding on the roads could not shake them and helped me to get to the airport on time! Not only are the rooms great, but the restaurant will need a special mentioning. A unique fusions style is mixing Thai, Malay and a hint of Italian in the dishes. It is fresh, seasonal and healthy on top of everything super yummy. I let Chef and Manager Mr. Azman to create a dish for me, was more just than pleased. Perfect stay for single travelers and families alike. Little India is walking distance, shopping is around the corner. We will be back, hope sooner than later!

Amazing place with amazing staff
Stayed there for 4 nights Oct 2017. Emailed them to book and communication was great. Staff through out our stay were lovely and very will to offer advice and help in anyway they could, even using personal money to change larger bills. Rooms very spacious, clean, quiet. Love the combination of air conditioning and fan. House keeping were excellent, even doing small things like fluffing up the pillows! Great place, close enough to everything, but far enough away that noise was not a problem. Special mention to Kevin who was such a helpful, friendly and kind person. Thank you Kevin!

Ditto all the "Excellent" reviews
Ditto all the reviews with "Excellent" ratings. They pretty much sum up the experience my wife and I had when we stayed at Areca Sept 1-6 2017. It's a wonderful boutique hotel with a staff that wants to be sure you have a great stay. Whenever we had a question (hotel or tourist related), they were more than happy to help. One staffer even walked us to the free CAT bus stop that circles the town when we weren't sure where it was. We ate breakfast every morning at the hotel, and the chef was happy to make special adjustments when requested. The staff is happy to chat or give you your privacy, whichever you prefer. Very good at reading this. We will stay at Areca again next time we visit.

Pretty boutique hotel
This boutique hotel is 10 min walk from the unesco historic center. Rooms are very small but the hotel itself is beautiful in the purest Peranakan style with pretty tiles and nice patio. The breakfast menu needs improvement.
