Jalan Pintal Tali, 10100 Georgetown, Penang
*************************************

Each suite is named after a wellknown Chinese surname like Yeoh, Lim, Loh, Lee, Tan or Chua. The biggest suite is Seah suite named in honour of the owner! There is no Kee suite strange to say but then we Kees are very small, clicquish and super exclusive as there are so few Kees left in this world and my branch will die after me as decreed by Buddha.

The row of old buildings are around 130 years old and there has always been a hotel here since 1881. In fact the original name is Chong Tian hotel which catered to wealthy Chinese merchants of the 19th century who came to trade.

Every suite is different as it is impossible to duplicate since the original antiques are from the personal collection of owner Seah Kok Heng who has been collecting Chinese and Peranakan/Straits Settlements antiques since he was in his twenties. There is even an inhouse museum on the topmost floor housing his most valuable antiques like vases, plates, cups, statues and small, portable items that can be squirreled away in suitcases and thus too risky to be placed in the rooms!
