a guesthouse; 2 residences; a George Town inner-city experience
SINKEH is a collection of bijoux accommodation comprising a guesthouse and 2 residences. We take inspiration from the industry and creativity of the Sinkeh, meaning "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 are conveniently located in George Town's heritage zone, within walking distance of the city's historical centre and its famed street-food stalls.
