Nam keng Hotel - About Us


Hoo Kim Hotels Sdn Bhd has established another pearl in the heart of George Town, Penang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


With the success of it's first hotel venture, Yeng Keng Hotel, the owner envisaged an idea of a Heritage “Business” Boutique Hotel, a hotel which exudes beauty and vibrancy and is yet accommodating to business travellers who prefer to experience the living heritage of George Town.


Nam Keng Hotel is named after one of the earliest established cities in China, which was also the capital city of China for 6 dynasties.


Our hotel consists of 3 combined units of shop houses, which were built during the early 1900’s. With 8 elegantly appointed rooms, each room is tastefully decorated with antique furnitures, handpicked personally by the owner.


Located on Cintra Street, Nam Keng Hotel is in the centre of George Town World Heritage City, just minutes away from religious buildings, guilds and attractions.


For much of the 19th and early 20th century, Cintra Street was a red light district. The section between Kampung Malabar and Campbell Street was where brothels with Japanese Geisha’s were found. Today such activities are no longer operating along Cintra Street.


In the 1960's, People's Court, one of the earliest housing estates in Penang, was built along Cintra Street to provide housing to low-income earners. It is today the heart of Chinatown with a number of traditional Chinese trades.


Upon check-in, be sure to ask our reception for a guide map to experience the wonders of the heritage trail and gastronomic food spots.
