Great Historical Hotel
We were met like old friends by the staff... a wonderful historical building in heart of Penang historical district. I had a two room suite which was lovely! The buffet breakfast was fine...western and Malaysian Food. It also serves as a great restaurant the rest of day. We were given an extra two hours for check out... I look forward to returning...

We Love It!
A gem of class and culture, Yeng Keng has everything you want. The rooms are not large, but they are perfectly appointed. The pool is a delight after touring about on a hot Penang day. But the service is what elevates Yeng Keng above others. Raj and Nanda can solve every problem! We can't wait to go again.
