Our family of three stayed at Coffee Atelier for 3 nights. The shophouse is lovingly restored to reflect the ambience of what it's like to live here decades ago. The feeling of coming 'home' once you stepped into the living foyer is refreshing and the area is simply but elegantly furnished. We have the whole space upstairs - spacious master...

Stayed a couple of days here and the suite we were assigned to was not only very roomy with a nice reading area but it was also full of old-world charm. From the exquisite chinoiserie to the netted 4-poster bed, this place almost transports you back in time. But don't be fooled. It has modern amenities like flat screen TV's,...

Perfect walking distance to everything needed and lovely staff. Very helpful and polite. Beautiful settings and lots of thought into room layout. Lovely hot water and a great relaxing space for the evening out back - obsessed with the courtyard. We had a great stay and would be back without doubt if going back to Georgetown. Lovely antithesis to the...

We wanted to choose a hotel in an old restored house ( Heritage House) , there are many, this seemed to us to have a good value for money. When we arrived it was a surprise because the bathroom is in the backyard, outdoors. But as soon as we got used to it we found it very nice.Of course there...

I stayed here for a week on business. The rooms are spacious and very unique--almost like having an entire apartment to yourself. The staff was incredibly accommodating. I arrived late at night after the restaurant had closed. However, the night manager stayed up for me and even made sure I got a bite to eat. The location is great. I...
