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... More

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.

Have stayed there on many occasions. Centrally located. The front desk is very helpful and friendly. Rates are competitive with the other budget hotels in the vicinity.. Only if the wifi can be enhanced into the room.

Old budget hotel with perfect location in Georgetown. Old but clean, safe and friendly! Staffs were brilliant, helpful and accommodative. Get all basic amenities, no wifi but can always walk to nearby cafes for free wifi. Will definitely worry-free for food. Plenty of options to choose from. Worth staying!

Amenities are all basics but overall rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Staff in the hotel are mostly senior citizen but most of them speaks fairly well English so communication would not be a problem They are helpful and friendly so you can ask them any information. Location wise, the hotel is in the middle of Georgetown, so you can... More

I Stayed in this hotel With my tour group so not by choice. It's fairly basic but clean and tidy! The beds were slightly bigger than a single which was nice. Just be careful in the lift!! The hotel is close to basically everything you need to see in Georgetown we did it all by foot in an afternoon.

The staff were helpful and generally friendly and the location was ideal for exploring Georgetown. Some of the hallways, etc were a bit tired but room was clean and shower good. Ideal for a short stay to discover area.

I stayed here for three nights at Christmastime 2014. $24/night first two, $27 for Christmas Eve. The lady at the front desk during the day is first-class. Friendly, efficient, extremely helpful. When my taxi driver didn't show up (twice) for a planned island tour, she made many calls until she found a driver who was free and spoke English. I... More
