I stayed there for 4 days and 3 nights. Peter and Mei have been very helpful in my stay at Penang, giving tips on where to go. The house is super clean and looks exactly like the pictures. Ally, the cat is super nice and I like it very much. The location is pretty accessible. There is a direct bus to Penang Hill. Most of the time, I just used Uber because it is easier :)

If there were 10 stars of rating, I would give 10! The actual place was way better than the description and photos. I truly enjoyed my stay at Peter & Mei's place. They are very hospital and their house is just amazing! Will definitely come back here again if I'm traveling to Penang next time.

I will definitely go back to the warmth and homely house if I were to visit Penang again! Location is convenient, just 15 mins walk away from the Heritage. 10 mins walk away from the New Lane Hawker. 1 min walk away from the bus stop, to Kek Lok Si or Penang Hill. 3 mins walk to famous Ah Leng CKT. Quiet neighbourhood but I dont think its dangerous. Perfect place putting the location aside, Peter n Mei hospitality was perfect! I went to Penang without any prior planning but Peter did a great job and explaining about what i can do during my stay cleaniness Their house are really comfortable and I am missing Ally alrd, the cat. TY Peter n Mei !

Peter and Mei were wonderful host throughout my stay in Penang. Peter was very patient and accommodating. I was 2 hours late on arrival date. Took longer than expected to arrive at Penang via motorbike from sgp :-( They were very helpful in guiding and sharing about the wonderful and good places in Penang. Nasi Kandar, Chendol, Roti Canal; ask them! They know where to get the good ones! My room was very clean and simple. Perfect for the single traveller. Bed was comfortable and pillows were soft. No complains here. It was perfect for me. I would recommend Peter and Mei's place if anyone is travelling to Penang. Everything is walking distance. Overall, it was a good experience :-) Was my first time in Penang and won't be my last! Danial

Staying at "24 Merican Road" has been the best experience I've had so far using Airbnb. Peter & Mei are very friendly and helpful. Once I arrived at their place, Peter gave a short introduction on the places of interest and where to find delicious food. Mei also helped me with my day 2 & 3 itinerary planning. Their house is very clean and nicely decorated, and is located within walking distance to Komtar, where one can take the free C.A.T bus to get around the core & buffer zone. Ally is a shy but cute cat ♡

This was my first experience with AirBnB. I had met the wonderful couple, Peter and May are friendly. I go Penang with no itinerary planing beforehand. I was lucky to get all the ideas of travel information from them and save my headache. Peter even messages and guided me on how to reaching their home before arriving. We had a nice chatting time together with others travelers. The room is clean, location near to Georgetown, price is reasonable. Good hospitality had provided by Peter and Mei. It's highly recommended to book and get such good deal with a good hosts in Penang. Thanks again to hosting me during my stay :) Definitely I will go back visit again someday. Cheers!
