Muntri Mews

MUNTRI MEWS is affordable luxury accommodation for today's flashpacker in the heart of Georgetown, aUNESCO world heritage site. It is within easy walking distance to the key heritage landmarks in the city and a 20-minute drive from the beautiful Batu Feringghi beaches.

Muntri Street has perhaps the best preserved rows of 19th Straits Chinese architecture in Malaysia, equivalent to Singapore's Emerald Hill.

The grade 2 listed building was formerly the stables and carriageworks of the street's grandest terraces. Carriages were kept below while drivers and staff were housed above in 12 worker's quarters. In the Edwardian period it became a garage for some of the smartest cars in Penang.

Acquired in a dilapidated state in 2009 by award winning hotelier Christopher Ong (previous projects, www.clovehall.com and www.galleforthotel.com have both been cited in Conde Naste Traveller's Hot Lists) the Mews has been meticulously restored with its utilitarian spirit kept very much alive but without sparing any modern comforts.

Once again Ong has revitalised this historic premises by infusing it with the Malay, Chinese and European influences that have made his entrepot hometown world famous. The interiors are bright and spacious with comfortable and relaxing furnishings, highlighted with a gorgeous selection of local, historical and quirky paraphernalia.

All suites come with en suite bathrooms, LCD tvs, spacious sitting areas which open to the verandah upstairs or the lush private tropical gardens downstairs. WiFi, a small shop and a compact business centre are also provided for your convenience. There are just 9 suites upstairs and downstairs creating an intimate feeling of social conviviality but also allowing for privacy when desired.

The Mews café prepares the best fresh local produce for a menu inspired by asian cuisine combined with a selection of tasty international favourites: steak sandwiches and beer battered fish and chips sit comfortably alongside a spicy curry laksa and luxury nasi lemak. Air conditioned inside and al fresco in front, the café sits comfortably at the entrance to the mews and is popular with locals and visitors alike. Beers and latte are served all day.

Muntri Mews combines the clean lines and textures of contemporary design in a laid back tonal palate that is rich in character, with its warm cozy ambience. It encapsulates the grand terrace lives of Muntri Street residents in the early years of last century.

Antique, deco and retro furniture and a tropical jungle garden make this both a convenient base to explore all that Penang has to offer and a perfect escape from the urban delights of this amazing merchant town.
