As in my last review Sapur is a lovely, friendly host who has a spacious well appointed apartment. For me it was like coming home this time, after my 5 day bike tour from KL. I highly recommend her place as an oasis in Penang

Aunty Sapur went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and to make sure we felt right at home. She's a wonderful hostess with lots of knowledge about Penang and has wonderful recommendations on what to do, where to eat and so on! Aunty Sapur was so sweet to make us breakfast and also take us out the next day to sample some of the hidden streetfood gems and showed us around a bit too! Would love to visit her again in Penang one day! The apartment is spacious and very clean, the location is ideal for anyone wanting to explore Georgetown. Grab/Uber is reasonable and very easy to get around!

Sapur epítomes everything that's good about Airbnb. She's friendly and approachable, and knows a lot about the history of Penang as well as, most importantly, where to get the best food. She also dropped me off to a great coffee shop on the first day, took me to another for breakfast and even dropped me to the ferry. Her place is lovely, warm, central and walkable distance to interesting spots in the old town.

Sapur is such a nice host and she is very helpful and informative during my stay. Her house is very well designed and super clean. She is exceptional at cooking local food. I by chance attended her cooking class - that was the highlight of my trip! Thanks your Sapur for your warm hospitality. Surely I will visit you again if I come to Penang!

Sapur is definitely one of the best hosts I've ever had in airbnb! She is so nice and full of wisdom. You will enjoy a nice conversation with her, either about her wonderful stories with her family or history of this lovely town. Sapur's place is a very lovely apartment, well decorated and maintained even better than the photos. You have everything you need and don't miss the delicious home made breakfast from Sapur. It's located at the border of the center heritage area, but since Penang is quite small it only took a few min from the place to town center by grab or Uber. Also you can enjoy the walking from center same as me as it only took me 20min. Penang is a very nice place especially for foodie who loves to embrace different cuisines. I will come back soon to finish an unfinished hiking journey。。。 特地给会中文的游客们向你们极力推荐Sapur的家,即使你是像我一样独自旅行的女性游客也不需要担心,房子是在非常得体的住宅楼里,而从镇中心到这里都是非常大的主干路,再加上grab和uber便宜又方便,所以完全不需要担心安全问题,更不用说又有Sapur这么一位热情又周到的房东了。

Sapur and her space were both absolutely lovely. Sapur went above and beyond to make me feel completely taken care of and at home, even taking me out to breakfast and dropping me at the Thai consulate at the end of my stay with a bag of snacks to go! I loved chatting, watching a (scary!) movie together, eating brunch on the balcony (so yummy!), meeting the neighbors, and talking about our families, travel and life! Thank you Sapur, for everything. It was a pleasure.

We really enjoyed our stay with Sapur. She is a lovely lady who kept the home absolutely clean and her hospitality is beyond ordinary. She cooked breakfast for us and we all enjoyed it. She also guided us on places to visit. But beyond all these we enjoyed our interaction with Sapur, during breakfast as well as other occasions. She is very nice person and we learnt a lot from her. Overall, this is our first experience in Airbnb and we enjoyed it to the fullest. The room was spacious with clean beds and toilets. Also it was tastefully done. The location was great as it is very near to street food joints, major attractions etc. Overall highly recommend for others to stay.
