I stayed in Orinetal hotel last week with my family. We booked a family room for just $55 per night. The hotel is ideally located in the heart of George town in close proximity to the famous UNESCO world heritage site, restaurants and shopping centers. Although the hotel is a bit old the rooms are very spacious and clean. The... More

about Geogetown: it has a teeny-tiny downtown, do not worry about the location of the hotel,.... in the downtown everything is in half an hour disctance by foot. about the hotel + pro: central located if you are on visa run, it is perfect for you, it is end of the Chulia street, 2 minutes far, from Banana House (...

Having scoured the city in a taxi for hotels, this was the cheapest one (excluding guest houses) at RM87 per night. Very courteous, efficient staff, even a doorman! This hotel was probably quite grand thirty or forty years ago, but looks tired now. That being said, the place is very clean, the rooms are spacious with excellent views and the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights on a visa run, it's all you need if your on a low budget! The location is central & within walking distance of restaurants and bars. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful! Location is Very very close to the party strip- which had its disadvantages... Every night all we heard was 'boom... More

Dirty sheets, towels with holes in it that felt like sandpaper, very outdated interior (1970s something), weird smelling elevator. Very noisy due to single glazing, we were kept awake by the bar in the street, the people on the opposite of the building were woken up by the mosque. The staff was very friendly, but it couldn't make up for... More

This was a good, centrally located budget hotel (about AUD$28/night). The room and furnishings were dated, but for the budget price, it was clean, comfortable and quite (our room was a number of floors up) with lift access. The staff were very helpful. I stayed in March 2011, and would stay at the Orient Hotel again.

My family stayed for 3D2N in adjacent room. 1 is the family room while another is the standard. The family room is rather spacious with good view, equipped with a fridge, yet there is no tea-making facilities provided. I feel that a kettle should be provided in the family room. As for the standard room, well...it's just "standard". Just two... More
