This budget hotel is super cheap, always fixed price no extra charge during the high season or any holidays. It is located with less than a minute to Penang Road and bus stop where you can catch up the bus, and walking distance to many places around Georgetown. Only few rooms are attached with bathroom, but the common bathrooms are... More

The room was decent, clean and the shower had really good water pressure too. Air-cond was strong and cold. The lounge area downstairs were nice but the caretakers of the place weren't as friendly as we initially expected. Cons: the walls are rather thin so you'll hear conversations from the room down the hall. Only two extra plugs in the... More

This is a 2 star hotel, everything is basic as expected. We booked a 4 shared room with an ensuit bathroom, and a nice view into the courtyard. - Towel and soap is provided. - Aircon is not cool enough, but at the same time a powerful wall hung fan is available. - A thin blanked is provided instead of...

If all you're after is a clean room in central Georgetown at a cheap price, then this place could be perfect. It's a big old building, kept spotlessly clean, but with all the ambience of a prizon (think cement floors, stark white walls and low lighting). Showers are hot and have good pressure. Breakfast is free and includes tea or... More

I was really worried to stay there for very low price and did not expect a lot. But on arrival it was nice welcome from receptionist. All info was provided. Room for 4 of us was large with A/C and breakfast on the terrace very good start for your day. Thanks... Petr

Pros : To me, Hutton Lodge is an elegant and a beautiful 'old lady'. What impresses me most is, the staff keep the place spotlessly clean. In fact, I would recommend this place for long-stay because this old colonial bungalow really makes you feel like home. If you are one of those who live to eat, all the good food... More
