Loved this low key guesthouse, we opted for a fan room with shared bathroom. Had two large windows, spacious room with nice wooden furniture, ceiling fan worked great. A mosque is nearby so every morning we woke up to prayers, might annoy some but loved it. Stayed ten nights, 42rm per nite

If all you are looking for is a safe, inexpensive place to crash after a day/nite on the town, this is a good choice. Hang Chow, more of a backpacker spot than mainstream tourist hotel, is clean and economical, tho it is a bit Spartan. A ground floor fan room was quite adequate for our needs - two nites in... More

I love this kind of hotel in Asia. For just 50 RMB per night, I had a large double bed, a big fan, a nice clean room with dark wooden flooring, a private shower and basin and a towel. OK, it's a little rough in places and the walls aren't the thickest but the hotel is in a great location,... More

We were supposed to be there for a couple of days but we finally decided to extend our stay as the staff was very friendly, the room was quite big and not expensive at all. There's no breakfast but the location provides a lot of good options, especially some good Indian restaurants. Be aware however that there is Mosque just... More

Really clean budget place (35 Rm per night / double room) Simple but big rooms (not wet), high ceilings Really nice people. Little misunderstanding by paying at the end of staying. Better to do check-in at the start of stay :-) Good position: in the midle between Comtar and old town

The owners and one staff are quite friendly and the place is clean. But, my first night in an AC room on the second floor resulted in an attack by bedbugs. I had bites all over and had two large bedbugs killed for proof to show the one staff member. I explained to her and one of the owners that... More

We stayed in the Hang Chow for four nights. Good, clean hotel. We stayed in a fan room for 35 RM. The room was on the corner at the back, ensuring a nice air flow and good light. Beds are good and they provide towels. Only downside is that it is fairly noisy, even at night. The 50 RM AC... More

I went to Penang with my girlfriend in April for four days. On the first night we went the Crystal Guesthouse and stayed in a double room with washroom. The room was quite small, dark and needed a bit renovation and a better bed. The room cost us 60RM per night and we thought we should treat ourselves better for... More
