Hotel: Muntri Mews - Muntri Street, Georgetown (Top Pick)

I was taken to this hotel by a very good friend of mine one evening and thought I would post the details here as the Muntri Mews is another very nice boutique style hotel in the heart of Georgetown. Often I prefer these boutique hotels to the large corporate offerings as they generally offer a more relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and a more personal service. Some are better than others though and I am pleased to say that the Muntri Mews definitely falls into the 'better' category, much better.

The hotel is nicely designed with cooling whites and contrasting colours in a tasteful style which flows through the whole hotel from the Mews Kafe (the hotel restaurant and cafe which is situated at the entrance to the building), through the courtyard (where guests can also take breakfast) to the relaxing bedroom suites all of which have LCD TVs and seating areas which open on to the verandah of the Mews. The hotel is decorated with a nice mixture of local art and paraphernalia and free wifi is also provided for guests.

On Friday and Saturday the hotel also offers a restaurant style meal in the Mews Kafe. We tried the Nyonya specialities last night which comprised a very tasty range of dishes from the 'Top Hat" spicy starter with Asian vegetables and spices in a light and crispy pastry basket, through to the nicely presented and tasty Nyonya mixed plate (curry, vegetables, salad, and rice), finishing with a very light and tasty caramelised banana fritter with ice cream. The price is very reasonable indeed and the meal can be accompanied by a range of wines, beers and/or soft drinks with a bottle of Tiger at RM9.

I have to say that the Muntri Mews is a lovely find and thanks to my good friend for taking me there. Much of the time you will be in the good hands of the very welcoming, charming and helpful Chona who will I'm sure ensure your stay is a pleasant and relaxing one. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for the more quaint, atmospheric and relaxing type of hotel, particularly one located so close to the heritage sites of Georgetown. At around RM 300 a night I will certainly look to stay there in the future.
