Great Historical Hotel
We were met like old friends by the staff... a wonderful historical building in heart of Penang historical district. I had a two room suite which was lovely! The buffet breakfast was fine...western and Malaysian Food. It also serves as a great restaurant the rest of day. We were given an extra two hours for check out... I look forward to returning...

We Love It!
A gem of class and culture, Yeng Keng has everything you want. The rooms are not large, but they are perfectly appointed. The pool is a delight after touring about on a hot Penang day. But the service is what elevates Yeng Keng above others. Raj and Nanda can solve every problem! We can't wait to go again.

Excellent customer service and Well-decorated
Excellent customer service. Room was nice, well decorated and clean. Location is also excellent, as it is nearby Chinatown. The only nitpick is the price is on the high side, but everything else is great.
