My first time in Penang and what a pleasure it was to stay at Coffee Atelier. After a super friendly welcome I was shown around and given helpful information on what to see and do in Georgetown. The location is excellent; within walking distance of temples and museums and places to eat.
The apartment is tastefully set out with beautiful heritage furniture, oriental rugs on polished hardwood floors and interesting original artworks adorning the walls. ( check out the onsite gallery ) All modern conveniences are provided; air conditioning, good wifi, bar fridge, tea and coffee making supplies and TV and DVD player, and of course quality bedding and linen. The outdoor bathroom with homemade soaps and rain head shower is an exotic experience.
Breakfasts are delicious, especially the fresh fruit salad and squeezed orange juice and bread basket.
The cafe is a great place to have an espresso or cafe latte ( it is coffee atelier!) or later to relax with a cold beer and plate of prawn and papaya salad.
Needless to say, I felt completely at home and it was a totally relaxing and comfortable stay.
If you appreciate authentic, sensitively restored heritage buildings then you must stay at Coffee Atelier.
Thank you to Stefan and staff ( Ruby, Paul, JR and Marisol) for your friendly, caring and thoughtful hospitality.
