A group of 4 greedy friends on a mission, " Food Trailing Penang". Besides the minor inconveniences of not having any shower curtains (wet floors), having to request for a hair dryer & of the air conditioner blowing directly at you, all else was great & more. Sheets were clean, mattress firm & with our Food Trails beginning right at... More

My last stay was a couple of years back, and it's good to see everything has remained more or less the same. It's quite clean, and the bed is comfortable, and the standard inclusions, while basic, they cover for everything that's reasonably needed. The location is within walking distance to the food places on Jalan Mcalister, Komtar, and the nearby... More

Not a bad hotel at all for the value. We chose a budget hotel for our stay in Penang and it served its purposes. Our room was quite small so we upgraded to the next class so the 3 of us could be more comfortable. The room had pretty strong AC as well. Located in a good area convenient to... More

It's less than 10 minutes walk to Georgetown. Great dim sum places just across and beside the hotel. Room is big and clean. However, bring ur own toothbrush and hair & body shampoo. The neighborhood is quiet and safe.

Small lobby, no restaurant, only a vending machine Rooms 706: nice view, small size, dirty bedsheets with two hole! , bathroom doorknob rusty to the state of unacceptable!, mouldy ceilings, shower head went wrong but...

I stayed here again last January, and it isn't my first time staying there. I always recommend this place to my friends whenever they ask for affordable yet comfortable accommodation. PPIsland has only two kind of rooms, Deluxe for Twin Bed and Superior for Double Bed. The price we paid was fair. No breakfast included though, but don't worry, it's... More
