Yeng Keng Hotel is located along Chulia Street, one of the best and most popular areas to stay in Georgetown, Penang. Yeng Keng caters to the more wealthy travelers, instead of to back packers. It is a beautiful boutique hotel. Yeng Keng has two floors with only 20 rooms in total. There are 7 different room types, ranging in size and price. The cheapest room, Mansion Double, costs RM300 per night. The most expensive Yeng Keng Suite costs over RM500 per night. All rooms include breakfast and wifi broadband.
The hotel has a small pool in the back which is very nice if you want to relax and cool off for a bit after walking around in Georgetown. During the day but especially in the evenings you can enjoy a beverage at the Yeng Keng Café Bar. We loved their cocktails and desserts.
Breakfast is always included in the room price. The breakfast was very nice. The local treats were delicious, the bread was fresh and the coffee was of very good quality. Non-guests can also have breakfast here for RM20 per person (which is a steal).
Rooms are all very tastefully furnished. They are spacious and cozy at the same time. The same goes for the area outside the rooms, where you have multiple seats, chairs and sofas where you can sit and relax. Overall the hotel has a wonderful atmosphere. If you are looking for a nice boutique hotel within the historic center of Georgetown, be sure to visit Yeng Keng.
