Set behind their cafe restaurant area right on Chulia Street, the Yeng Keng Hotel offers 20 smart rooms in a restored 19th century building.
Originally a private residence then later in life a budget hotel, the Yeng Keng in its present form opened in 2010. The decor is more understated than some properties in Georgetown, and you'll feel less like you are staying in an antique shop here. The rooms are smart and very well kept and going by the way the staffer was scrubbing the shower floor in the room we were shown, they keep the bathrooms very clean. There's a small atrium-like area at rear and we'd recommend going for a room towards the rear of the property to escape the racket of Chulia Street. The hotel is competitively priced for the standard and if you'd otherwise be leaning towards something like the towering Citidel, this could be a better, more "Georgetown" experience.
