I stayed at this hotel in 2013 when I visited Penang with my wife. It is a cozy and well maintained boutique hotel. Kumar, the front desk manager was extremely helpful and provided us with great information on activities and food. Breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend staying at Campbell.

Have just returned from Malaysia where we spent 4 nights at Campbell House. It was one of 6 hotels we stayed in and was by far the best. The staff are very friendly, the owners Nardya and Roberto such a lovely couple, the decor, the comfort, the roof terrace, the food...the list is endless. The amazing reviews of this hotel...

Cute unique hotel. Our room was small but totally doable. Shared 'living room' on the second floor allows you to have a little more space if your room is small (like ours). The staff was amazing. Absolutely would come back here. Very nice breakfast.

We spent 4 nights at this delightful 100 year old hotel on our recent our trip to Malaysia. The owners are on-site and hands-on….we found the staff were very polite, welcoming and super responsive to our requests. Our room on the 2rd floor was large, had a massive comfy king-sized bed, was quiet and very well appointed with colonial style...

Stayed here for three night, and it was fantastic! Lots of lovely little touches, especially liked the local products. Staff always friendly and gave some amazing food recommendations. Campbell House was excellent value for money and would definitely stay again.

If you like small boutique hotels with character and personal attention then the Campbell House is for you. With only 8 bedrooms the personal attention and warmth of welcome given by the Italian owner's staff was second to none. Every day we returned from exploring the sights of Penang there was a little pastry in our room to go with...

My husband Christopher and I had high expectations for Campbell House having once been delighted by the lunch we shared at Il Bacaro (the hotel restaurant) during a trip to Penang in 2013. We booked the Rose Suite on the second floor - a beautiful, sumptuously decorated room to say the least. Our trip was going reasonably well until I...

Dear Gayathiri P, Thank you for submitting your review, again we sincerely apologize for the accidental damage that occurred with your dress. Unfortunately the member of staff was new and did not seek any guidance or advice regarding the service and in her willingness to please took on this task on her own initiative; the damage was certainly not intentional....

Location is great, everything is walking distance: bars, cafes, shops. Service is phenomenal, their first question was if we would like to check out later than regular. Rooms are awesome, they really give a home-like sensation with a dash of luxury. It just feels good being here! One of the best hotels I've ever been to. Love it!

“The hotel has 11 rooms in 3 floors no elevator so if stairs are an issue ask for a low floor. Was not a problem for me at all and I am 57.”
