The Overview

The 19th-century Anglo-Indian bungalow housing the Yeng Keng Hotel was one of George Town's first lodgings when it was converted from a private residence over a century ago. Following a top-to-bottom makeover, its 20 character-rich rooms and suites, all set around a small swimming pool, are an oasis of cool terracotta tiles, walls painted in saturated yellows, greens and blues, and crisp white linens set off by dark timber antiques, vintage dressers and desks. There's an alfresco café–bar for post-sightseeing refreshments and, though the Yeng Keng is located on one of George Town's best streets for hawker-food grazing, it serves up a compelling reason to stay in for breakfast: a jaw-dropping buffet of morning specialties like roti canai and curry laksa.
