Our featured room features modern style in the historic centre of George Town. Conveniently located on the edge of the heritage enclave, we are literally "around the corner" from some of the most locally well-known street-food stalls in the city.


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.

Accesso ospiti

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.

Interazione con gli ospiti

There will be staff in the house during the day to check guests in and to handle questions. If you will be arriving after 6pm, please let us know so we arrange for someone to meet you.

Located in (secondary) one way road, minimized noise from busy traffic. The green ambient offer a sip of peace, divided the outside world. Good for authentic exploration, stay with the old neighbor. 5–10mins walk to major tourist attraction. Must try "Lobak King" and prawn soup noodles just a few shop away from the home.

The house is very beautiful, simple but with a style. When I left, Sek kindly helped me to check out and call a taxi for me at 6am in the morning. Nice stay, short but sweet:)

Sek and the other staff members were very welcoming, always available and gave some great recommendations for food. The shared library, terrace and atrium are very peaceful, perfect for reading. The bedrooms and beds are simple, the pillows are soft. When I stayed there was a breakfast of bread or noodles with egg. But there is also a duck noodle shop that opens for breakfast next door. I suggest exploring Penang from Sek's starting as early as 8am since the area is active with breakfast shops and morning stalls. I very much enjoyed my stay.

It's my second time here. Definitely the best place I've ever stay in Penang. Local food stalls and hipster cafes are around the place.

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 r…
