Review of Armenian Street Heritage Hotel, Penang, Malaysia

During our 3 days 2 nights trip to Penang, Georgetown, we stayed at Armenian Street Heritage Hotel and this hotel is a love hate relationship. Here are some Pros and Cons of staying at this hotel.




  • Clean, new and comfortable
  • In the middle of Georgetown heritage central, 3 minutes walk to see the street art of the boy peering at the hole and short walk to bicycle rental shop
  • Less than 10 mins walk to a cluster of old school shopping malls
  • Extremely value for money, booked through Agonda and only paid SGD58 per night (inclusive of booking fee) for a double room
  • Small in house eatery, massage parlour and 24 hours mini mart
  • Good wifi available in room


  • Air Con takes a while to cool down
  • Corridor of hotel not air conditioned
  • Only 1 key card for each room, I suspect is to save on electricity, otherwise, most people will leave the key card there the whole day and leaving the air conditioner run the whole day
  • No telephone or fridge in room. My guy needs cold water 24/7, so we had to buy cold water from the mini mart instead.
  • Generally quiet and peaceful on most days, except that it is near a Mosque which will sound the prayer chant 5 times a day. Not for light sleeper as I was woken up by the prayer at 5.30am on both mornings. But the rest of the group were not affected.

Open concept corridors which is not air conditioned.

Like I said, this hotel is a one which I have a love hate relationship, I love the location, the comfort and the value for money but there are a few things which can improve. But for SGD 58 per night, I shouldn’t be complaining. Will I stay here again if I’m back in Penang, sure, why not.
