Comfortable and sensible with plenty of natural light, our featured room offers modern style within George Town's heritage enclave. Conveniently located, major sights are within walking distance and street food stalls are minutes away.


SINKEH is a guesthouse located in the heart of George Town, Penang, that supports culture and the arts.

We offer 8 en-suite rooms in a 19th century Straits Chinese house, re-imagined by award-winning Malaysian architect Lillian Tay. The traditional open plan with its quintessential courtyard ensures ample ventilation and allows for easy social interaction. The modern rooms on the other hand, are compact and provide privacy. Like the rooms, many aspects of the house are contemporary, but the past is never far away. The walls, timber beams, building layout, views of the city and our name, link us to history and heritage.

Our name SINKEH means "newcomer" in Hokkien - a commonly used Chinese dialect in Penang. The sinkeh were Chinese immigrants who came to Penang in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Comprising traders, craftsmen and coolies, they formed part of the vibrant mix of communities that made up the population of this colonial trading post.

We love the arts at SINKEH. Performances, rehearsals, lectures and discussions are regular occurrences in the studio. Should you see and hear things that excite your senses, rest assured they are merely the creative expressions of artists who pass through.

Sek Thim's place must be one of the most gorgeous stays that I have had with Airbnb. The space is charming, beautifully designed and charmingly styled. Every corner is a photo opportunity. My room is spacious, bright and affords a great reach to the charming exterior via full floor to ceiling glass. Sek Thim himself came to greet me upon check in and we continued to stay in touch throughout my stay.

Walking distance to everything you need. My mum is so in love with this part of Georgetown, she said that she felt like she was in an old HK movie. We only had 2 days in Penang and we'd only hope it was longer. Sek Thim is an absolute awesome host and his place is just beyond wonderful. 10 minutes on the patio in morning brings all my good old memories back so make sure you check it out. What can I say? I'm looking forward to going back already.

Beautiful place, highly recommend. Helpful check in, giving us great tips about where to go- we really enjoyed China House for food, drinks and live music. The Airbnb was fantastic- stunning interior architecture even better than the photos. The plants and artwork were a highlight in this place. The room was lovely and practical, the communal areas were fab too. If you're going to George Town this is really well located and would definately suggest staying here! Lovely people.

I work in the theatre as a director. Good meals with friends, gardening and listening to stories are things I enjoy. We are a friendly bunch here at Sinkeh, my team and I. We try to maintain a space that's peaceful and calm; one that encourages people to rest, to be at ease and relaxed.
