The hotel is  located strategically in town along Leith Street and just a stone's throw away from Penang UNESCO World Heritage Site - Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion. The hotel houses 140 rooms ranging in various sizes from 183 to 366 sq ft. 

The design of the hotel is very much inspired by Penang’s unique identity in architecture which can be seen from the walls of the property. You will be welcomed by the vibrant textures of Peranakan tiles, fixtures, finishings and skilful use of repurposed wood elements from the moment you step foot into the hotel right until the rooms. The  hotel also uses sustainable elements such as double-glazed windows which is thermal insulation. This helps in reducing energy consumption needed to cool down spaces, while the energy efficient air conditioners and water heaters does play a role too in further reducing the hotel’s carbon footprint.

“The foundation LOOP is built upon incorporates the texture of diversity in Malaysia which we have
grown up and fallen in love with. This neighbourhood is the perfect setting as it is surrounded by
layers of history from our multi-racial neighbours and colonial influences, allowing us to channel
these into our hospitality services, aesthetics, and favourite Malaysian food. Along with
mushrooming cafes, museums and heritage sites, LOOP is a natural when it comes to the beautiful
Penang inner neighbourhood experience. We also see an area of growth in the local art scene
which has already attracted thousands of visitors to Penang. This is why we are making a
concerted effort by using our space to promote and nurture budding artists and their artwork,” said
property owner of LOOP On Leith George Town Penang Hotel and Project 10 Sdn Bhd
Chairperson, Yeoh Tze Shyun.

“There many opportunities to further enhance Penang’s attractiveness ahead of Visit Malaysia
2020. In the first six months of 2019, Penang successfully attracted investments worth RM9.21
billion which put this state in the lead in terms of investments. Looking ahead, a collaborative effort
is crucial in bringing together an overall outstanding experience for our visitors. We welcome new
players in the hospitality circuit as it promotes healthy competition, raises the industry’s benchmark
and offers greater options for the benefit of consumers and tourists. I believe LOOP has entered
the market at an opportune time as we prepare for an exciting year ahead,” said Penang Chief
