Noordin Mews is a passion project turned reality
A 1920s Peranakan shophouse turned boutique heritage hotel in Penang
Set within a working class neighbourhood known as the Seven Streets Precinct, our converted Straits Eclectic shophouse was originally for the trishaws and hand carts that populated Noordin Street in the early 1900s.
Abandoned after its purpose declined over the years, the main hotel building was rediscovered by an acclaimed hotelier, who skilfully restored it to its glorious years, coupled with modern times’ finer touches.
An authentic and unique stay in Georgetown
With five-foot ways, classic symmetrical floor tiles, ornate archway carvings, and framed photos from the early 1900s adorning the walls, Noordin Mews seeks to lead the renaissance of uniquely Penangite heritage shop houses.

“Will be back again!”
We stayed at Noordin Mews in June and gave it a top rating. 6 months on, we visited Penang again and this place and more importantly, the people, continue to impress us. My daughter was participating in a badminton competition which was some distance away and when we bought takeaways for her and her friends, Belinda arranged for us to use the crockery from Noordin Mews. Unfortunately this trip, we overate and when one of us threw up in the room, the staff cleaned it up quickly and were super nice about it. We felt so bad about messing up the place and wanted to give the cleaners a tip for the extra work but they declined. Again, a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Definitely our top choice for any stay in Penang.
“Als ik ergens voor een tweede keer zou komen dan zeker hier!”
Wat een geweldig plekje! Op loopafstand van het mooie Georgetown. In andere reacties lees ik: als je de straat in rijdt dan.... dat klopt, maar als je vervolgens de voordeur doorgaat dan is de goede sfeer direct voelbaar. Bij het inchecken krijg je meteen veel informatie en dit is heel prettig. Je hoort waar je lekker kan gaan eten, wat er allemaal te doen is. Alles is af. Bij een kopje thee krijg je een lekker stukje cake, bij een cocktail een 'knabbeltje'. De kamers zijn geweldig. Heerlijke douches. Kortom: als ik ergens een tweede keer zou komen dan zeker hier!
This place is really adorable, cared for in every detail, clean and with a very professional staff. It is a colonial house with a nice pool and the decorations are very elegant. Breakfast is also very good.

“An oasis of calm and great service”
We had an incredible stay at Noordin Mews. Penang was a brilliant city to enjoy for 3 days with plenty of culture and great food. However, a real highlight was staying at this hotel. It is quiet but conveniently located. The courtyard was a beautiful place to relax both in the evenings and during the day. The rooms were tastefully decorated with excellent bathroom facilities and a very comfortable bed. But the thing that stood out the most was the service. Edric on the front desk deserves special mention for being both incredibly charming and helpful, offering useful advice on where to eat or visit, as well as organising taxis and transport. The rest of the staff were very friendly but at no point was the service overbearing, the balance was perfect. Thank you to all the staff at Noordin Mews. We wouldn't have to think twice about staying at this hotel again.
“Wish we could have stayed longer”
The hotel is in a beautifully restored old building which is located very near to the historic area of town as well as one of the malls for all of your modern conveniences. The breakfast (which was included for us) was very tasty and a great way to start the day. Even beyond this, the staff were infinitely friendly and really made our stay great, if only too short. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
“Excellent Place to stay”
A lovely hotel in a great location. Room was nice & spacious, pool was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was also great. Would definitely recommend to stay here. The staff are extremely helpful.
