The room is tiny but comfortable and the breakfast is good
Overall I liked. 5 star standard !!
Location is near from the center, and the breakfast great
Perfect breakfast, room and location
Stayed for a night at Museum hotel recently. It has a great environment and extremely friendly and helpful staff. The location is strategic, smack in the city. I got the 1 queen bedroom without windows room, its quite small but I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. My favourite is the super comfy bed! I hope they'll have a better variety of breakfast food, and a better shower. Other than that, I would highly recommend the place!
Excellent service provided by every staff of the hotel. Classic and cozy ambience. Breakfast is awesome. Highly recommend to spend time in this well managed hotel

Highly recommended
Stayed here for three nights and regret that we had to move on. Very comfortable room with great air con and spacious bathroom. Breakfast was a delight, eggs Benedict competed with crispy roti and dahl, and great coffee. Staff were delightful and seemed disappointed if we didn't need their help. Initially the hotel seemed to be quite distance from George Town's main attractions but this is not the case and it is ideally placed for some great local restaurants. ' .

Very quiet hotel with so much character!
5 stars in all aspects!!! I mean it!!! Location is far off the street arts of Georgetown which I love - it's quiet, safe, and relaxing. All attractions are walkable within 15 minutes anyway. The staff are lovely and service is personalized (rarely you can see this even in 4 star hotels). Front desk will go out their way to help and very attentive of our needs. The area doesn't come short of food stalls and restos. Room is spotless clean! The hotel is one of the best 3-star hotels I've been to! mid-range but feels luxurious! And oh, the ambiance and the hotel interiors are breathtaking!

Pleasant stay, friendly staff and suitable location - short walk into George Town
A very pleasant stay. Front reception were friendly and super welcoming to my fiancée and I - and made our stay very comfortable. Hotel was very clean, and comfortable linen and nice atmosphere in the heritage feel throughout the hotel. Easy to find the hotel, and to walk into George Town - which is about 10-15 mins away. We didn't have any breakfast in our particular package so unable to comment, but there is a nice Roti Prata just one street away - delicious indeed. Knowing it was out joint-birthday - the hotel management and room keeping went out of their way to mark the occasion with touches to the room! The shop-houses within the hotel block are now opened - there is a wine bar and shop - amongst others. Would recommend this hotel - it is slightly to the west of George Town, in a more tranquil area - but easy to walk around without much effort. The old museum is now closed (after the change of hotel ownership), but everything remains the same as before - when I last stayed 4 years back. The streets around the hotel are quite derelict - but there are renovating a few of the shop houses - so it should get better - especially walking back from the town late at night.

Quaint hotel with excellent service
Hotel staff were very friendly and very personable and their service was excellent and prompt. We booked a deluxe room for 2 but was given a free upgrade to a family suite room that comes with 2 toilets, 2 showers, 2 sinks, 2 single beds and a double bed! Love the wooden, antiques furnitures and nice interiors. Hotel location was stragetic with many nice, local delights within walking distance (hotel provided us with a very helpful food map of eating places that are all within 15min walk). Neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Penang!
