100 Cintra Street (GPS: 5.41701, 100.33287) is a 19th century mansion along Cintra Street, George Town. Presently used as a guesthouse, 100 Cintra Street. It is believed to have been built by one Myroon Koon Nye Sone, a wealthy Thai lady, around 1881 (according to 100 Cintra Street, it was in 1897). The mansion has been readapted for different purposes since then.

In the pre-war days, 100 Cintra Street served as an inn. Later on, it became a communal home of the black-and-white amahs, a group of women servants from China. The building was acquired by its present owners, the Lim family since 1938. In 1976 it housed a modern air-conditioned department store (I remember buying a monopoly set there). The department store was destroyed by fire in 1986. At the turn of the third millennium, it was also a budget hostel, and recently, restored as a cultural bazaar and heritage centre.
