Spices Hotel (GPS: 5.414830, 100.335877), or simply Spices Hotel, is a boutique hotel along Lumut Lane in George Town, Penang. It occupies a row of four townhouses that have been restored and converted. The idea behind Spices Hotel is to create a homey atmosphere for discerning guests.

I made a visit to Spices Hotel on 4 August 2015, and was warmly greeted by Michael Ong. Michael is one of the business partners and owner of the premises. It feels like visiting his own home, for as soon as I entered, I had to remove my shoes and put them away in the shoe rack.

Rather than squeezing a room out of every inch of space, Spices Hotel offers just 8 rooms, each named after a different spice such as turmeric, star anise and so on. Each is spaciously furnished. In addition, some 60% of the hotel is common area, so there are many cosy corners for the guests to feel right at home, cocooned from the hustle and bustle of George Town.

Located at Lumut Lane, Spices Hotel is a mere stone's throw from Acheen Street and Armenian Street, where the guests can explore the many heritage sites of the city.

There is a big banyan tree growing out of the centre of the house. According to Michael, it was upon seeing the tree and how homey it feels to have it there, that persuaded him to eventually pick up the place - originally with the intention of making it his own home, but as things turn out, he decided to convert it into a boutique hotel.
