Description from owner

Description

A new renovated space in a 100+year old three-storey townhouse! The ground floor is a bedsit with a queen-sized bed and a convertible sofa (firm and comfy!) so it works for a couple and an extra person. It comes complete with an ensuite bathroom, a simple kitchen and dining area. Only a microwave (to heat up food) and kettle (for hot drinks) are provided because guests are literally surrounded by Penang's best hawker foods available throughout the day. One 2hp air-con and two ceiling fans keep the place cool, and the room's centrepiece is its lovely airwell. Despite being in the city, you could be woken up by the chirping of birds in the mornings (courtesy of a big tree at the back lane) and in the afternoon, the warm, yeasty aroma of baking bread will waft in from the next door bakery - one of the few around still making traditional Hainanese bread.The Shophouse is in George Town which was listed as a World Heritage City in 2008 and is within 10-15 mins walk to all World

The place is suitable for those who want to experience George Town and a traditional shophouse space and living, but modified for modern needs. * During your stay, the first floor could be occupied by the host, or the second floor could be occupied by other guests at the same time. All share the main front door and a common staircase but each floor has separate entrances. Dato Koyah is off Penang Road which is a paradise of the best hawker foods in Penang. This is a great space for foodies who want to enjoy the rhythms and pace of George Town. The street is largely residential with low-traffic businesses, except at night when one end of the road draws in the supper crowd. Staying in a George Town shophouse will mean ambient sounds of the city. There will be some ambient traffic sounds, ie muffled drones of motorbikes whizzing by and the beeping sounds of automatic car locks. But this suite is relatively "embedded" within the building so the noise is muted. **If you're looking for absolute silence, this is not a suitable space. Hawker highlights around the corner include my neighbour's charcoal-warmed toast and soft-boiled eggs (7.30am-6pm at Campbell Street), wonton mee (morning), koay teow th'ng (morning to early aftn), pork broth (12pm till late), roti prata and fried maggi mee (9pm -4am), Nasi Kandar (24 hours). ** A food map will be provided!

Location description from owner

The Penang region

Dato Koyah is right in the heart of George Town, just off Penang Road, the main artery. But it's on a street that doesn't get continuous traffic or heavy traffic - making it an ideal residential location. Every attraction of G'town is within 15 mins walking distance.

George Town

This is the buffer zone of the World Heritage Zone of George Town.
