The beautiful heritage hotel is located behind the main road and is very centralised to some attractions in Penang.The hotel staffs are very friendly and their room is spacious & gorgeous.The hotel breakfast is tasty and has a variety of choices for us to choose from.Just behind across the main road is the Famous Chendol place at Penang Road and it is near to The TOP as well.

Enjoyed my stay at Areca!
Love the heritage building. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Location is excellent. There is an India roadside store just beside the hotel and their mutton soup is so good. And directly opposite it is the famous chendol store, which you can easily find due to the perpetual queue. Hotel is quite central and near good food and museums. Also we took Grab wherever we went. If its your first time at George Town, do seriously consider this place.
