Tranquility of the accommodation despite the hustle and bustle of the streets! :) Very quiet rooms that allowed us good nights’ rest. The hosts were the best! If you need advice on which room best suits your needs, you can contact the hosts. The staircase may not be young children/ elderly/ pregnant lady friendly but the quaint preservation of it certainly adds flavour to the well conserved building.

Historic preservation, Fun space, Great Service!
Spent a few days in Penang on the way to a conference in KL. I loved my short escape at Ren i Tang. Loved the historic preservation, and how they created such cool rooms like loft spaces. It made our stay a fantastic escape. Breakfast there was among the best meals of our entire trip, including the omelettes and noodle dishes. Eating in the courtyard was just so refreshing with the fresh air. The location in Little India (UNESCO Historic Preservation zone) was fantastic and made night walks just perfect. I can't say enough good things about the pleasant staff who shared many tips on places to eat, shop, and explore. It was like a resort on many ways, but with a more homey feel. I hope to return someday.

The hotel is very unique, modern amenities mixed with antique decor. No compromise in the cleanliness. The staffs are very nice and attentive. We love the extra touch where 1 of the breakfast option was the most authentic Penang foodfare: Char Kuey Teow (Fried Rice Noodles)

Great location & charming
Ren i Tang is a good choice for a stay in Penang for a few reasons: The old heritage building is comfortably renovated while keeping its original character. It’s located right in the heart of Little India, a colourful and vibey area - within walking distance of anywhere in the old city. There are tons of great places to eat nearby. (We loved the little hawker center across the road for koppi and char koay teow). Our room (Loft #17) was quiet with a pleasant rooftop view. The wifi is good and they offer free water (and a simple breakfast) and do their bit to reduce plastic waste. Altogether, we really enjoyed Penang.

For a reconditioned heritage building, it was remarkable that facilities were modern & efficient... WiFi, inhouse phone, shower had good pressure, toilet flushed well, AC cooling worked well due to glass windows doubled with antique wood slatted shutters. Street noise level was minimal. Bistro Tang serves excellent western snacks - a nice change esp. the calamansi lime smoothie. Also Malaysian dishes. Excellent location within heritage district, walking distance to ferry, 5-star hotels, restaurants + typical Malaysian "kopi tiams" (local coffee shops), temples, mosques, St George's Cathedral + other historical buildings.
