The UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town in Penang, Malaysia, has welcomed the latest addition to its hotel accommodation offering for visitors with the grand opening of the Armenian Street Heritage Hotel by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

The hotel is located within the Core Zone of the George Town heritage site, which together with the historical city of Melaka were declared world heritage sites by UNESCO in 2008, in recognition of their unique status as multicultural heritage communities, fostering and benefiting from the rich cultural exchanges between East and West.

The Armenian Street Heritage Hotel is one of more than 1,700 buildings that stand within the Core Area of the World Heritage Site.

 Offering guests an experience of the old world charm hospitality, the Armenian Street Heritage Hotel features a viewing deck on the top floor, allowing guests to enjoy the scenery of almost the entire heritage area right up to the coast line of the Penang island.

The hotel also serves as an extension of the George Town World Heritage Incorporated (GTWHI) office, which is located right next to the hotel. GTWHI will have the largest model of the heritage area to be displayed at an area covering 1,500 sq. ft. on the second floor of the Armenian Street Heritage Hotel. The gallery will be open to tourists, members of the public and anyone who would like to learn more about George Town World Heritage Site.

Just steps away from the heritage trails of museums, temples, eateries and the world famous street paintings by Ernest Zacharevic, the Armenian Street Heritage Hotel is a perfect accommodation choice for any visitor to Penang.

Located at 139, Lebuh Carnarvon, the hotel is managed by international hotel brand Tune Hotels.

 The hotel offers 92 rooms of various sizes, fitted out in heritage style and equipped with modern amenities to suit families, couples as well as solo travellers.
