Classic 'Khor Cha' Hotel
Love the at home feeling, clean surroundings. Brings back memories of peranakan heritage. Great, helpful, friendly staff. Yummy food beside the hotel, the chef we met was friendly, he whipped up the once famouse Hainanese fried mixed vegies, commendable chicken pie !

Lovely Peranakan experience
If you wish to have the old Peranakan experience in Penang, Yeng Keng Hotel is a perfect place to stay. It's one of the most well preserved building in George Town. It was built in 1800's and yet the building is clean, well-maintained and very lovely. It still has the old ornaments and yet equipped with modern facilities. The staff are really friendly and helpful. When I stayed, Penang experienced the worst storm and the water was dripping in my room. The staff who handled the night shift was very helpful and gave us another room to stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to George Town!

Home away from home
When on holidays, Yeng Keng Hotel is our home away from home. It ticks all the boxes for us - convenience, location and ambience, not forgetting the wonderful, friendly staff at our beck and call. Yeng Keng epitomises the beauty and heritage of Penang - steeped in history, full of charm and character. It's like stepping back in time but with all the conveniences to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Worth a mention is the buffet breakfast of western and local fare, the perfect way to kick off the day.

Peranakan experience
I chose this hotel as I wanted to experience the peranakan heritage. This hotel offer just that. Was told that the building itself is more than 200 yr old, the owner renovated and maintained its heritage . The staff were truly attentive , helpful and friendly. The location is strategically situated to many street food areas tht is less than 10mins walk away. Two lanes down is love lane and it's full of pubs to chill during happy hour. Truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again in the future.

A Gem of a Hotel with the great GM Mr Poh!
This hotel in the heart of Georgetown is a real gem. It is a restored Chinese style hotel and it has been done in a magnificent style! It is really charming and the bedrooms are wonderful with very comfortable beds and an excellent bathroom. All the staff are charming and couldn't be more helpful! However undoubtedly the star of the show is Mr Poh! Poh is the General Manager of the Yeng Keng and he is one of the great features of the hotel. He is such a character and having lived in London for nearly 40 years speaks great English. He is full of stories and will really help you in your adventures around Georgetown. He really made our stay in Georgetown. The hotels location in Chulia Street is fantastic. It is right in the centre of Georgetown and it is where you will find dozens of hawkers stalls from late afternoon onwards, the food is delicious. You are also close to Love Lane which is full of bars and backpackers. I would definitely stay at the Yeng Keng next time I was in Penang. Oh and btw Yeng Keng is very gay friendly!
