MUNTRI MEWS RESIDENCE is a refurbished shophouse offering affordable luxury accommodation for today's flashpacker in the heart of Georgetown. Located within walking distance to the key UNESCO heritage landmarks in the city and a 20-minute drive from the beautiful beaches and hills.

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

64 Muntri Street is Straits eclectic style, typical of late 19c shophouse architecture in Georgetown. The outstanding features of this terrace are the depth (200 ft, with a land footprint of over 3000 sq ft) and the 3 original interior granite courtyards.

The interior showcases much of the original architectural details -including the intricate wooden staircase, recessed wall cabinets, high ceilings, wooden floors and shutters upstairs and faded original floor tiles downstairs. The entire shophouse features only four suites- allowing for generous common spaces -including living room and multiple courtyards, as well as dining room cum reception hall. The entire shophouse can also be booked for house parties with a minimum stay of two nights (sleeps up to 14).

Muntri Mews Residence is the latest jewel developed by award winning hotelier Christopher Ong (previous projects, www.clovehall.com, www.seventerraces.com, www.noordinmews.com, www.muntrimews.com and www.galleforthotel.com – three of which have been cited in Conde Naste Traveller's Hot Lists). The Residence has been meticulously restored with its original character kept very much alive- but without sparing any modern comforts.

Once again Ong has revitalised this historic property 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 relaxed furnishings, accented with a gorgeous selection of local, historical and quirky paraphernalia.

All suites come with en suite bathrooms with separate toilet, LED tv and spacious sitting area, tea and coffee facilities as well as a mini fridge. There are only 4 suites creating an intimate feeling of social conviviality but also allowing for privacy when desired.
Three of the family suites are in excess of 600 sq ft, the average size of a Hong Kong or Singapore apartment. Full time housekeeping on site and concierge facilities from Muntri Mews.

Full a la carte breakfast is included and is served at the Mews café across the road or on the front veranda. The Mews café prepares the best fresh local produce for a menu inspired by Malay and Asian cuisine. 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 on the patio, open from 7:30 am til 11pm for a quick bite or a glass of wine.

Dining can also be arranged at The Residence, with food prepared fresh from the Mews Café.

Muntri Mews Residence combines the clean lines and textures of contemporary design in a fresh, bright tropical palate that is rich in character, with a 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 tropical garden patios 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.
