Stayed in early November with mum and sister after a couple weeks travelling around Malaysia. CA was hands down the best place we stayed in terms of providing the full package. Great location, great rooms (with a wonderful private courtyard) and fabulous staff. Whilst I regularly rely on trip adviser for reviews and tips, I've never felt compelled to post...

There was a sitting area on a closed off balcony where the robe was. Netting over the bed. Shower was pretty cool - all in one room, partially open but loads of privacy. Clean! Cafe was...

Was walking around one morning and stumbled across this cafe then we decided to have breakfast here. I really love the ambiance here. There's also great breakfast selection in the menu. Coffee and service were okay.

We were a little unsure about our choice before we arrived as we had selected somewhere that seemed quirky and right in the centre of everything. We loved it. It is quirky and it delighted us. Our bedroom was lovely - beautiful Malay furniture and an enclosed balcony which could be closed off at night so we were never disturbed...

When I booked this place I had high expectations from it already. Only there was a little doubt about the location, as I felt it could get noisy if it's so close to the centre.

The best place to stay in the heart of the old George Town. Super nice, quiet, special building & rooms. The staff takes care of everything with great attention to details! Very clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Feels a bit like home! I could have stayed here much longer! Thank you!

A tour of the Georgetown heritage site is never complete without staying in a heritage house. Coffee Atelier are heritage houses adapted to hotel operations without destroying the old architecture. We chose Coffee Atelier for its location, old architecture, good ratings and availability of a triple-shared room. Little did we know that the very efficient, friendly and accommodating staff is...
