Clans Kongsi Georgetown

Penang | First Class

These unique houses which fringe the Khoo Kongsi Temple have been carefully restored into 43 guestrooms, providing an unforgettable insight into the culture of UNESCO Heritage site of Georgetown. The houses, built in 1860, are within walking distance of many other heritage sites - a perfect location for those after a dose of culture and history.

Five different types of room all showcase individual styles, with some overlooking the garden courtyard and others the skyline. Interiors are a tasteful mix of traditional Malay and Chinese influences, with dark wooden furniture and rich colours. Bathrooms are a feature rather than a necessity, with outdoor showers in some of the larger suites.

Breakfast is the only meal served at the hotel, but you’ll not go hungry as there are plenty of charming local cafes and restaurants in the surrounding old town. Complimentary afternoon tea is worth returning for, with Peranakan delicacies to sustain you until dinner.

Spend your days exploring the Khoo Kongsi Temple, artisan craft markets and food scene of Georgetown. All the staff at the hotel are local and will be pleased to explain the history of the Clans Kongsi in more detail.

We Say
Khoo Kongsi is one of Georgetown’s most well-known attractions, and the close proximity of this unique guesthouse allows you exclusive access at times when the tourist crowds are not permitted.
