Tune Penang is a small hotel, nice clean bed with good air-conditioning, ideally located in Jalan Burmah. If you're traveling with tight budget, this is definitely a good place to stay. The room is budget size small but perfect for a short stay.

You simply pay a few dollars extra for what you really need beyond what your $16 gets you. $2 for a towel, maybe $5 for air conditioning for... More
