The idea of Container Hotel Penang is to transform a heritage building into a lifestyle travelodge featuring shipping containers and compact modernised rooms, by infusing smart design in the use of space, and functional elements to create a unique lodging experience for the adventurous explorers as they embark on an exciting urban quest. To foster the arts and heritage preservation in the community, we transformed the corridor into a creative space for the local aspiring artists to display and share their works of art. For that, we strive to make your stay an artful and memorable experience imbued with Penang modern and heritage charm; a dose of cultural fusion which feeds the travel bugs’ curiosity.

Prices are per person per night.
