A Sneak Peak on The Hotel’s History


It was originally a three row, double storey, terraced building located in Georgetown that included houses and shophouses. Built sometime in the 1920s it was renovated post war.

A lovely couple bought this building and converted it into a forty-five room heritage boutique hotel.


What makes this heritage hotel worth a stay is that most of the renovation uses the traditional architectural methods and original furniture. The timber and lumber used in the building’s design was recovered from demolished colonial buildings. Even the tiles are from other older Penang buildings.


Additionally, Hotel Penaga was the first heritage restoration project in Malaysia to be given a Gold Rating by the Green Building Index. Included in this rating system are factors such as living conditions and safety for on site workers.
