Don't judge the hotel by the look of it~!
At first when i saw the look of the hotel...i went OMGosh~~~am i going to stay here...then when I went in, and I saw those old uncles as in 70+ yrs old...i totally lost my confidence and will to stay in the hotel.
Because of the budget and the time went is quite pack every where, I decided to give it a try and when the uncle open the door for the Deluxe Room, I'm left without words...All i can say is I'm definitely staying here and it is worth the price at RM105/night for two queen size bed that can fit 4 big guys in it.
Fine looking hotel
This white colour hotel looks interesting for those who are into old architecture and low budget. Room costs RM69nett per night for 2 persons. It's basic room with tile floor. Good location as there is a hawker center opposite it. Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion is located just opposite.
Unique Quality: Basic mid range hotel
Directions: Opposite Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. You won't miss this bright white old mansion style hotel.
Haven't stay there but this hotel looks like Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. I mean in the same style of accomodation in a very old Penang house.
The price is of course much cheaper than the famous mansion and I guess the service is less experienced but if you look for new experience, this may be the place.
If I remember well, the price must be around 50 USD.
Unique Quality: location
a step back in time
The cavernous Cathay Hotel is not big on services. Just a neat looking place, with clean, basic, yet large rooms, with cold, cold a/c....which is a big priority in the heat of Penang.
Unique Quality: You can walk out the front door, and look straight at the amazing Chung Fat Tze mansion. The staff consists of about five very elderly men, one of whom still has a British accent from his days of being educated by the British during their colonial rule.
Directions: Across from 'the blue mansion.:
Charming Colonial Joint
If you're still yearning to stay in a colonial mansion but want to pay a fraction of the guests prices in the E&O, then stay in Cathay Hotel. This joint is just opposite the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and next to the clubbing area of Leith Street. A double room with air con here goes for less than US$30.
Unique Quality: I explored this cavernous hotel and absorbed all the lovely details. Unlike Cheong Fatt Tze, the friendly caretaker over here didn't even blink an eyelid when I took pictures. I saw lovely english tiles, ancient wooden swing doors and latticed windows.
Note:This place is extremely traditional so they don't accept internet bookings or credit cards. Pls call ( details in the weblink below ) ahead to book a room.
Elegant mansion converted to hotel.
Good idea to try one, but it doesn't look cheap !
The Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion is just opposite the road ?
Unique Quality: Stately building. Near to the hot spot Penang Road - the place for Penang night life !
