My wife and I enjoyed the privilege of a review stay at Areca Hotel on 24-26 November, 2017. The hotel is housed in a row of beautifully restored townhouses along Khoo Sian Ewe Road, in the heart of George Town, Penang. During our stay, we were given the very spacious Heritage Room, which is on the ground floor. The room measures 40 square meters and has a queen-size bed. It is comfortably furnished with period furniture, but all the modern amenities are available, from multi-channel television to fast wifi.
Our daily breakfast was taken at the hotel's inhouse Areca Cafe. Although the hotel is of modest size, the breakfast selection was quite good. After breakfast, I was taken on a hotel tour, so that I can have a chance to review all its facilities. I was surprised that the hotel has its own meeting rooms to cater to executive meetings and off-site functions.

Size of rooms and length of swimming pools can be measured, but hospitality can only be experienced. Understanding this, the numerous hotels in Penang have extended to me the opportunity to experience their hospitality so that I can showcase what they offer to guests on this website.

Thank you for visiting my website. I started it in 2003, and today it has over twenty thousand pages of information. My name is Timothy Tye. You can call me Tim. I have been writing my website full time since 1 November 2007, and I am enjoying every moment of it. I write my website to satisfy my own curiosity, but I am glad if the information is useful to you.
