I lived in Georgetown Pulau Pinang in 2011 on Love Lane. I was here from February until April 2011. I came back on September 29, 2022 on a visa run from Thailand and was recommended Hotel Hong Ping, off Chulia and Lorong Seck Chuan, by The Brew bar. I stayed for 4 days in Room 314. Average room, nothing special. It didn't take me long before I was calling the front desk staff Auntie and Uncle. I left The Kingdom of Siam for good and went back to Pinang on November 16, 2022. I decided to check-in to Hong Ping but Room 314 was NOT available. This was a good thing. Auntie gave me Room 414 and I am in Heaven. Already 7 days. The room has a larger bathroom and better energy or Feng Shui. These are good people... an older crowd... and very warm and friendly. I recommend this hotel. But don't be too "hi-so" or stuck up... be friendly and say hello and they will treat you well.…
In the centre of Chulia St. and 2 minutes from Love Lane . A great place in a great town ! Clean rooms and friendly helpful staff . Has a good falafel place next to it too ,what more could you want !!
The location is perfect and the staff are really nice and helpful. We stayed as part of a group tour and Hong ping was definitely the worst hotel on our itinerary by far. The room that I was put in initially stank horribly of cigarettes. I don’t usually cause a fuss as I have worked in resorts and still work in hospitality, but I honestly couldn’t stand it. I asked if I could change rooms. The second room I was placed in was still in the same corridor but so different. No stink, a modern tv (which didn’t seem to work) and a much cleaner bathroom. If you’re not happy with your room just ask - you might be in the gross one I was put in. The wifi in our corridor didn’t work. I heard that it works in other parts of the hotel. The tiny elevator is kind of creepy and very claustrophobic. The mosque will wake you up at five am and then at six am but I actually thought it was quite beautiful and interesting. The worst part though was getting an upset stomach from the bottled water. I know it was from that because the food is been eating was of high quality. I didn’t realise the bottles weren’t sealed which is sort of my own fault. However, I wasted half a day and a bunch of medication because of it and I think that’s incredibly unfair and poor practice on the hotels behalf. Don’t let people smoke in your hotel in future and please provide proper bottled water. It would be much more moral and right to have no bottled water than this questionable stuff. …
5 mins drive to Chew Jetty and Komtar. Evening food stalls downstairs. Walking distance to pubs, bicycle rental and convenient store. The location is very good and reasonable price. Strongly recommend to backpackers / budgeted trip travellers. Note: please bring your own hair dryer and water bottles. There is a water station at lobby which you can refill your water bottle. Car park provided.
Contrary to the previous review, we found our room and bathroom (No. 314) to be super clean with comfortable bed/pillow. Location is superb and the staff is helpful and friendly. There is a new city tax which made the cost of our room $23, an excellent value. Only thing missing was a fridge. Would definitely stay again. Our room had a good view, including the small mosque and we were not bothered by the calls to prayer. WiFi is a bit spotty.
Well the only good thing is the location. Its not far to walk to some really great places. The bed was uncomfortable. Pillows hard. Next to a mosque and you get woken up at 6. Bathroom was dirty and the free water in the room comes in an unsealed bottle so I didn't drink it as I had no idea if they were just filling it with tap water. Wifi is non existent.
We had a wonderful stay with two nights in the 5th floor and were really satisfied about the view from outside and also the room has big windows where you get a lot of dailylight. Our room and bathroom was very clean and it was a good quiet area. TV was not really working but that was okay. reception is very kind and wants your best. The location is perfect near Love Lane and restaurants , cafes, comfortable bars. We can't complain !
Staff helpful and friendly, but (depends on person), have problem with English. Rooms are clean spacious but noticeably worn. Great location, just few steps form Love Lane. There is free wifi, but not working.
The hotel at USA$22 is good value with bathroom BUT the main point is it is right in the middle of all the excitement of Penang's UNESCO Georgetown and you can walk along streets for days like we did. Good meal $2 or 3 at the Hawkers stalls. If you see it is cooking it will be ok. Restaurants often warm up stuff you cannot see and belly pains set in. The round penang bus is good to visit all the stuff over 2 days. enjoy penang
There was nothing really special about this hotel. It was central to a lot of things in town. It was fairly clean, but had one small working elevator. The room was a nice size but the bathroom was very tiny. Our room faced a mosque, so we were woken up every morning around 6:15.
