The Best Boutique Hotel in Penang – The Malaysian city of George Town is a destination filled with a rich history, incredible food, and intricate street art. If you are a fan of these things you must make a pit stop here on your trip to Malaysia! A UNESCO World Heritage destination, George Town is bound to be any history lovers dream. We came to the island of Penang in search for some killer street food and an ultimate cultural experience.
Back in the day, George Town was established as a trading post by the East India Trading Company and under British rule. With just one look at the intricate architecture of the buildings around us, it was clear to see the British influence in the colonial style of buildings.
Today, Penang serves as a melting pot of a city. Culturally diverse, with influences from Chinese, Indian and Malay. When the harmony of these cultures come together it makes for one beautiful town.
With tourism on the rise, the streets in Penang are lined with hundreds of boutique hostels and hotels. Boasting to be Penang’s newest boutique heritage hotel, Noordin Mews is the perfect boutique accommodation for today’s flashpacker. A wonderful oasis of tranquility, this hotel has a beautiful garden and private swimming pool for guests to enjoy after a hot day of exploration.
Back in the day, Noordin Street was home to Penang’s Wembly Cinema. The street was known for offering an array of entertainment- be it dance halls, or billiard parlours.
Using restored retro furniture, the interior design of this hotel takes you back in time and brilliantly captures the city’s heritage.
Housing sixteen air conditioned bedrooms, the property maintains an intimate and private feel. As a result allowing you to feel special during your stay. The staff at the hotel were also very helpful. Offering tips on where to explore and what to eat, they never made us feel like a burden. Each room came equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, LCD TV’s and complimentary coffee bars. We must say, our stay at Noordin Mews was some much needed relaxation for the two of us! The pool at the hotel was also one of the major highlights. With temperatures on the rise reaching up to 34 degrees. Trust us when we say having a pool is a MUST in this town. If you happen to be by the pool in the afternoon. The hotel also offers a complimentary tea for the guests.
Now when it comes to food, we generally are ones to stick to the streets. However, the breakfast at the hotel was phenomenal! With an assortment of options, you can try something new each day and enjoy your breakfast outside by the pool.
