This is one of the best places I've stayed since I left England which was 7 months ago. The cafe below is such a lovely environment to relax in, beautifully quaint and with always great music playing. The rooms are lovely and even though shared bathroom this is on the roof with only 3 others so really not an issue...

Only good things to say about the place and the lovely host Kent. We will definitely be back! Nice room with both a fan and aircon, in the middle of Georgetown and still on one of the most quiet streets. Very friendly host, bikes you can borrow and great instructions from the host including a map about where to go...

I stayed here for a week, doing research in Penang. The owner was very friendly, helpful, and approachable. It's a very small hotel with only 7 rooms, which creates a more intimate feel. It doubles as a cafe/souvenir shop during the day, but wasn't busy during my stay. Other guests were very friendly, as were the four resident cats. However,...

Four of us stayed in the upstairs family room and it was perfect . Good amount of space and such a beautiful setting with all of the tropical plant life. The Location of the property is so handy to the popular Love lane for a drink at night as well as for day excursions in Georgetown. Kent was an excellent...

If you want to take a step back from luxury hotels and typical rooms, choose for 47 Moontree! With its ultra-relaxing atmosphere, its quiet garden with nice music, the friendly owner but especially the very old-styled rooms it's the best place we have stayed in Malaysia!

Stayed here for a couple nights. The place is great and very clean. The owner was very welcoming and helped us a lot with finding things to do. The cafe is a nice touch and it is near some great places to eat as well. Would highly recommend. I will definitely be booking again if I am back in Georgetown!

I stayed there for 4 days with my young son and a friend, in the family room at the back of the courtyard. It's a lovely place! When you enter the shop at front, you don't expect what comes next. A hallway and courtyard, open space and lots of trees and plants. The room is rustic and full of charm....

Great place if you want to stay in a traditional Penang house. Perfect if you want local charm, but dont expect any luxury. Note, for people with cat allergic conditions, there are many resident cats.

Moontree47 at 47 Muntri Street is easy to miss. The front is a shop that sells postcards and stamps (post box provided). It's a quaint place to stay, but not suitable for people who have kids, don't like cats (there are four) or steep stairs as the double rooms are duplex. If you're not used to wetrooms and windows that...

“We had the room on ground right in the end of the building, you will have to pass through the lobby, cafe and courtyard to get to the room. The room has attached bathroom which you dont have to share with other guests. The room opens up to the courtyard which is really amazing to me.”
