Hospitality Begins In The Heart
Yeng Keng Hotel is a 19-room restored heritage boutique hotel located in one of the oldest surviving and intact 19th century buildings at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage City of George Town, Penang.
The Anglo-Indian bungalow belonged initially to Shaik Eusoffe bin Shaik Latiff an Indian-Muslim family and remains unique in Chulia Street for not being relegated to the rear of a row of shop-houses blocking its facade. In 1897, trustees of the Cantonese Club ‘Ying Han Pit Shu’ bought the building on behalf of the association, later donating it to the trustees of the Straits Chinese Building Association in 1939. The building was later leased to Yeng Keng Hotel. Hoo Kim Properties Sdn Bhd, the present owner of the renewed Yeng Keng Hotel, took over its conservation and upgrade last March 2009. The property was completed a year after in April 2010.
Whether you’re here for business or leisure, you can be rest assured that you will receive with open arms and wholehearted hospitality throughout your stay.
