Tourists and visitors to the island of Penang in Malaysia now have a new option when choosing where to stay with the opening of the Armenian Street Heritage Hotel.

The hotel is located within the World Heritage zone of George Town, which together with the historical city of Melaka were declared world heritage sites by Unesco in 2008, in recognition of its rich multi-cultural Asian heritage with considerable European influences.

Located at 139, Lebuh Carnarvon, the Armenian Street Heritage Hotel is managed by international hotel brand Tune Hotels and offers 92 rooms designed for solo travellers, couples and families.

Each room features an en-suite bathroom, luggage rack and a working desk.

Fitted out in heritage style, the hotel also offers modern amenities including 5-star mattress, television, hot power shower, hair dryer, in-room safe and WiFi connection in all rooms.

Offering guests an experience of the old world charm hospitality, the 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 coastline of the island.

The hotel also serves as an extension of the George Town World Heritage Incorporated (GTWHI) office, which is located right opposite the hotel. It is also host to the largest model of the heritage area which is managed by GTWHI.

The Armenian Street Heritage Hotel is a project undertaken with much love and passion especially for George Towns heritage values. We look forward to working very closely with the State Government and its agencies, especially heritage and tourism bodies to bring in more visitors to the heritage zone. The opening of this hotel cannot be more timely to usher in Visit Malaysia Year 2014, said hotel owner Dato Yong Chai Seng.

The Armenian Street Heritage Hotel is just steps away from the heritage trails of museums, temples, eateries and the world famous "Little Children on a Bicycle" mural hand-painted by renowned artist Ernest Zacharevic.
