El lugar

SINKEH is a guesthouse located in the heart of George Town, Penang, that supports culture and the arts.

We offer 9 en-suite rooms in a 19th century Straits Chinese house, re-imagined by award-winning Malaysian architect Lillian Tay. The traditional open plan with its quintessential courtyard ensures ample ventilation and allows for easy social interaction. The modern rooms on the other hand, are compact and provide privacy. Like the rooms, many aspects of the house are contemporary, but the past is never far away. The walls, timber beams, building layout, views of the city and our name, link us to history and heritage.

Our name SINKEH means "newcomer" in Hokkien - a commonly used Chinese dialect in Penang. The sinkeh were Chinese immigrants who came to Penang in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Comprising traders, craftsmen and coolies, they formed part of the vibrant mix of communities that made up the population of this colonial trading post.

We love the arts at SINKEH. Performances, rehearsals, lectures and discussions are regular occurrences in the studio. Should you see and hear things that excite your senses, rest assured they are merely the creative expressions of artists who pass through.

Disponible para huéspedes

Guests have access to a common lounge area where they can hangout, and help themselves to coffee or tea. There is a reading room for a quiet retreat, and the courtyard which is open to the public, is where guests can have friends over.

Atención a los huéspedes

There will be staff in the house during the day to check guests in and to handle questions.

Otros aspectos destacables

Wifi signal is weak in the room but works fine in public access areas.

Our guesthouse is not suitable for children aged 12 and below.

The room is very bright in the morning. If you like to sleep in, please bring along an eye-mask.

If you have allergies, please take note that walls are coated with a layer of lime-wash in compliance with heritage guidelines and are hence, powdery.

We have a dog in the house. Her name is Luna.

We had a lovely stay at Sinkeh this past weekend. The location is unbeatable and the place is the perfect mix of charm and function. Sek Thi gave us the best recommendations for food and how to plan our time (as we only had 2 days). He helped us maximize the experience in Penang. We would give him (and Sinkeh) the highest recommendation :)

Sek Thim was very welcoming and helpful. The space was very peaceful and exceeded expectations. Would highly recommend to anyone considering George Town. Located down the street from excellent street food and nearby lots of street art.

Sek Thim is a fantastic host at a fantastic place! Himself and his team are very friendly, helpful and had good tips for us. Especially for those, who are interrested in arts is this the right place to stay. We were lucky to see a theatre in the guesthouse during George Town Festival. It was amazing!

Sinkeh is a beautiful little heritage house with everything provided for. From the moment I walked in to when I had to check out, Sek Thim and his team went above and beyond in ensuring I was comfortable and had enough places to visit in Gerogetown. As a solo female traveller, this made me feel very safe and comfortable in a country I've never visited before. Will definitely stay here again when I head back to Penang.

Super Unterkunft mit sehr schlicht und modern eingerichteten Zimmern im Herzen von Penang. Das Zentrum mit sämtlichen Retaurants und die Street Arts sind fussläufig schnell zu erreichen, einen Roller zu mieten empfehle ich jedoch jedem wärmstens. Der Gastgeber ist super freundlich, immer zu erreichen und kann gute Tipps zu einem Aufenthalt geben. Er hat uns persönlich empfangen und wohnt selbst in der Unterkunft. Ich würde die Unterkunft jederzeit wieder buchen. Als einzigen negativen Punkt kann ich das Frühstück anführen, welches meiner Meinung nach etwas zu spärlich war. Wenn es einem nicht genug ist, kann man ganz einfach in einem der vielen Bars/Restaurants super lecker frühstücken, insgesamt hat uns bei Essen das China House total begeistert!

Sek Thim is a great host, very kind and helpfull. We had to take a cab very early in the morning to the airport and he arranged everything for us. Our beautiful room looked just like the pictures. If we go back to Penang we will definitely book this accomodation again :)

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.
