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

If you're looking for somewhere that is close to hawker stalls in Georgetown, you can't be better located. The rooms were surprisingly clean and spacious (given the cost) and check-in/out was smooth. The lobby staff were welcoming, but they weren't necessarily committed to providing outstanding service.

Great hotel with great location! It's located at the heart of the city and famous food stalls are just few steps away!

The hotel is located in an alleyway between Jalan Burma & Jalan Macalister, IMHO offering the best eateries in Georgetown in retrospect to the overrated Gurney Drive locales. Rooms are clean with your no frills basic facilities. Value for $$ for the couple or small families planning to stay in Georgetown!

It's a business trip. Sure you may be asking, if it's a business trip, what the hell are you doing in this hotel??? This is my 3rd repeated stay. sadly it'll be the last one because: 1) the free wifi in the room doesn't work! And I got to go camp at the lobby. This being the case, I could... More

Stayed for 3 nights in April 2012 On the first night, we were given room 402 on the smoking floor. The odour was so bad that we asked to switch to a non-smoking room but it was fully booked. The room wasn't properly clean as we could see stains in the bathroom. The bathroom was also dirty with a stale... More

Stayed in the PPisland in mid-march. Room is small but clean. Location is centralised and walking distance to the New Lane Hawker Street food. Dim sum place at the side has good breakfast. Towels are provided, but toothbrushes and toothpaste you have to bring your own. Overall recommended for the price and location.
