Cosy, Historical and Beautiful
We booked two rooms at the Nam Keng Hotel for a short weekend visit to Penang. Its in a great location, within the historic area and walking distance to many good eateries. The staff were very helpful (I locked myself out of our room twice) and friendly. The breakfast isn't fantastic but nice nonetheless. I will definitely stay here again.

Nam Keng Hotel
Stayed in Nam Keng from 15th to 18th Oct. Booked via Agoda, hence even though there were only 2 of us, we booked the family room (triple sharing) anyway. No regrets at all. Air Cond is good. Staff had the air conditioning running so that we will check into the comfort of their clean nice hotel. Contrary to other reviews, a kettle is provided with coffee and teabags. Towels are clean and fluffy. All the usual toiletries are provided as well. Nam Keng is in a good location that is close to everything and everywhere in Georgetown because Georgetown is a small place to begin with. From hotel, turn left to go towards Komtar. Turn right to go Chulia and Jetty. Go straight to go Chowrasta Market. Cons : Half hearted provision of breakfast. 1st breakfast,there was only bread and yoghurt even though it was only 9am. 2nd day, it was better, nonya kuehs were provided but they were dried up at the edges. Disappointing! Quantity is disappointing as well.

Best Value and Location
Excellent architecture and decor, the room was better than I expected for its price (fixtures, blow dryer, automatic toilet with push button bidet, glass shower partition), and walking distance to most of Georgetown’s points of interest.

Namkeng is the best in penang!!
Woww!! Lovely 8 rooms boutique hotel in Georgetown. Relax facilities near lobby and breakfast area.What I love the most is water pressure in bathroom is really good, bed is very comfy and double glazing of window make soundproof and room decoration is nice&friendly. Nearby hotel so many Food stalls within walking distance for both breakfast and dinner. We also try lunch in Yengkeng hotel(sister's hotel). The food is very delicious!! I feel this hotel can rate at 5star boutique hotel and really value for money. We pay cheaper on promotion rate but receive 5 star feeling. I will definitely be back!!

Extremely pleasant
We had a very nice stay at this hotel. The rooms were spacious and cool, the shower was nice and hot, and the beds were very comfortable. Staff very friendly. Only room for improvement was the breakfast (included) which was satisfactory and tasty but somewhat limited.
