We stayed in Penang for a weekend break and chose Campbell House as the positive reviews and pictures on Tripadvisor caught our attention. The impression was confirmed when I called and was greeted with a very welcoming conversation with Nardya at the reception.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Campbell House. The owners, Nardya and Roberto, did an amazing job at creating a beautiful environment in the spirit and style of a Heritage House, and all the people who work in the house were so smily and pleasant.
We rented two rooms: the Peacock room and the Silver Room, for 2 nights. Both rooms and beds were very comfortable.
The location was very convenient, as the house is located right in the historical center of Penang, and Campbell Street allows for a very pleasant stroll among traditional style shophouses. Campbell House is also close to plenty of options for eating out. Maybe one little downside was the sound of traffic from the main street. But after all, it is an urban location, and noise died down at night.
Nardya and Roberto were very gentle hosts and never failed to patiently take the time to dispense valuable advice which allowed us to make the most of the short time we had in Penang.
Campbell House comes highly recommended, and you will probably find yourself asking for more of the delicious and thirst-quenching iced tea which awaits guests in their rooms.
