Great location & charming
Ren i Tang is a good choice for a stay in Penang for a few reasons: The old heritage building is comfortably renovated while keeping its original character. It’s located right in the heart of Little India, a colourful and vibey area - within walking distance of anywhere in the old city. There are tons of great places to eat nearby. (We loved the little hawker center across the road for koppi and char koay teow). Our room (Loft #17) was quiet with a pleasant rooftop view. The wifi is good and they offer free water (and a simple breakfast) and do their bit to reduce plastic waste. Altogether, we really enjoyed Penang.

Experience in style Penang's Little India
If you want to experience the "local color" of Penang along with its culture, food and history, then this is the place for you. Owners have converted and renovated an old Chinese medical hall into a lovely hotel that preserves the character of the old building. Staff was great. The breakfasts were wonderful -- mix of Western and Asian foods. My wife and I felt a part of Little India for the time we were there.

A perfect building for enjoying George Town
Really lovely heritage building in an old medicine shop. A great value for your money too! I enjoyed the ambiance and feel of the building, the staff was great and the amenities were great. Having the low key restaurant downstairs is a huge bonus. My room a big with high ceilings and a lovely feel. Will stay here again when I’m in Penang!

This place is amazing, book it now!
Everything about this place is amazing, such a great relaxed, homely feeling atmosphere! All the staff are so lovely and helpful, offering tips for where to eat and visit and are so good to chat to. The building has been so beautifully restored while still holding onto its original history, with beautiful old furniture and a little museum with items from when it was a Chinese medical hall wholesaler. Clean, comfortable bed, great shower. The complimentary breakfast at the in-house cafe/restaurant on the ground floor was really good, each day we got to try a different traditional meal. We also had drinks, lunch and dinner there several times and everything was so good! And there is a lovely courtyard off the cafe too. Free filtered water and very environmentally conscious, which is amazing! The location was perfect for exploring Georgetown. This is a must stay when in Penang! The Heritage on a Plate tour was a highlight too! Would love to stay again one day!
