Review by Traveloka users

4 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

very beautiful hotel, I really enjoyed my stay. will definately recommend to others.
Stayed for 2 nights. You will never believe hotel this small can bring you the sweetest memories. Very calm and ver clean.
Very cozy place to stay however need someone to always sit on desk because I arrive at night to check in and have to wait outside waiting for someone to open the door. Or at least leave you phone no on desk or door so that we can call you if we need something.
I really enjoy staying at Sweet Cili Boutique Homestay. The only downward thing is that for the free breakfast, you have to walk or drive to another shop. Other than that, the place is really clean and comfortable. The room is spacious as well even for a single room. I'll definitely stay at Sweet Cili Boutique Homestay for my next visit.

Wonderful Little Sweet Cili!
We had such a lovely stay at this gorgeous little boutique hotel! And would definitely be returning if we're ever in Georgetown, Penang :) On the day of check-in we got a call from a lady asking what time we would be checking in & we told her late as we were taking a late train from Kuala Lumpur. No problems when we got there as she had informed us to call a number when we arrive and a staff at their sister hotel would check us in. True enough, we called the given number and the staff was there within mins to checked us in without any issues and she was such a lovely girl (mind you it was pretty late at night) Pros: 1) Loved the fact that there are only 7 rooms.. We enjoy our privacy so not having to bump into many guests was definitely a plus for us. 2) The decor and furnishing of the room and hotel is so well done. You just feel so so cosy and comfortable from the minute you step into Sweet Cili. 3) Room was small but very comfortable and enough room for you to move around without any issues. 4) The hotel and rooms are very clean! Water pressure in the bathroom worked very well and was very comfortable to use despite it again, being small. 5) Loved the fact that there's an air-con AND ceiling fan in the room. As sometimes if the air-con gets too cold, you can always just turn the fan on to circulate the air. 5) Comfortable dining area with complimentary teas and coffee provided. (Don't know why people complain bout there not being a fridge in the previous reviews! Open your eyes or ASK! The staff will gladly show it to you and share the fridge space with you) 6) Location is excellent! Walking distance to/from the Ferry Port, within the UNESCO site of Georgetown and lots of little shops, restaurants and cafes within the area. 7) The staff at Sweet Cili are so so polite, helpful and kind! They made our stay that much better! Cons: Not to nitpick, but just to share a little bit of issue that personally bothered us. 1) It's not very sound proof :( We didn't have any noise issues from the road or the vehicles like previous reviews have mentioned. Maybe because we had the bedroom that was on the first floor and towards the inside (Room Serrano) BUT the sounds and noises are from people talking downstairs and in the corridor. They were not being intentionally noisy, it's just that the sound proofing of the room is not very good which is a shame as that's the only negative point I see this hotel having.. It got a bit difficult to take naps at certain times of the day. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and would recommend Sweet Cili for sure! Shout out to the wonderful Pinay (I had forgot to ask for her name) who had been so so kind and helpful during our stay! She went above and beyond and I would just like to thank her for kind hospitality and genuine kindness :)

Wonderful little hotel
We were so happy staying here at this beautiful hotel. The place is renovated with great care and attention to details leaving you with a good size room with a wonderful bathroom. It's within walking distance of Armenia street, little India, Chinatown and all it's restaurants but it is in a very quiet area. Absolutely love it and will for sure return for our next visit to Georgetown

Sweet Cili Indeed!
My family loved the hotel. Very cozy and comfortable despite the small lobby and hallways. You get the nostalgia of the olden days when you peep through the windows. Well renovated, clean and neat. Responsive front desk. Will definitely stay with them again.

Comfortable stay for couple
We stayed here for 2 nights @ loft room. Upon checked in, i was amazed with the lobby which is very clean with nice vintage furniture. Common area are set up nicely with shared refrigerator, kitchen area and a dining table. Room is clean. it's a big room which is suitable for 4 pax. But only 1 bathroom which is may takes up longer time to get prepare. Shoes are not allowed upstairs due to cleanliness, but you can bring up the shoes to the room. For light sleepers like me, you may need earplug at night as a lot of motorbikes love to pass by the small street which is just right in front of the hotel. It's not a problem for me as I am always ready with ear plugs due to my sensitivity to noise.
