3) Malaysian law requires non-Malaysians to pay a RM10 Tourism Tax per room per night. This shall be collected from you in cash when you check-in.

4) Because of the many open and exposed spaces in the house, sound travels easily. We minimize sound disturbance by practicing quiet hours between 11pm and 7am, and by requesting guests for their cooperation to speak softly and tread lightly.

5) No smoking is allowed inside the room and attached balcony. If you smoke, please do so only in the designated areas.

6) Please entertain visitors only on the ground floor. The upstairs areas are reserved strictly for registered guests.

Beautiful place, highly recommend. Helpful check in, giving us great tips about where to go- we really enjoyed China House for food, drinks and live music. The Airbnb was fantastic- stunning interior architecture even better than the photos. The plants and artwork were a highlight in this place. The room was lovely and practical, the communal areas were fab too. If you're going to George Town this is really well located and would definately suggest staying here! Lovely people.

This is a unique place to stay to fit right into the eclectic and vibrant Georgetown. The guest house is beautifully designed and the hosts do everything they can to ensure you maximize your enjoyment of Penang. We loved staying here and would highly recommend it if you want a comfortable yet aesthetically pleasing environment to explore Penang.

It is a very cozy and lovely place. A must place to stay for art and nature lover. Good amount of natural light in the morning and it is quiet even though the place is situated in the heart of the city at night. Walking distance to a lot of good makan (eating) spot as well as the tourist area. Do support this place more as it is one of a kind :)

The room was exactly how it was in the picture. The host was very prompt in answering messages and took initiative on asking about our arrival a day before. He also never miss the chance to say hi and have small talks with the guest which is for us a plus factor when booking places to stay when we travel. The check in process was smooth and the room was nice and clean when we got there. The place is very unique and for those who are loves the arts, you will love it here. Too bad we already had our days planned so we weren't able to catch any of the shows they have at their small theater. The breakfast was just enough, with toast and jams and some local noodles and eggs. The aircon though takes time to cool but glad that there is an electrician to get you to the hot weather of Malaysia A very good place to stay because of its location as well. Definitely a place to recommend and stay again when we return!

I work in the theatre as a director. Good meals with friends, gardening and listening to stories are things I enjoy. We are a friendly bunch here at Sinkeh, my team and I. We try to maintain a space that's peaceful and calm; one that encourages people to rest, to be at ease and relaxed.
