noble hotel is well situated in china town. it is basic and clean, however, the greeting could be improved, especially by the proprietor. we had just arrived from the long train ride from bangkok. we found noble hotel, and was greeted by very hostile couple-owners. the fan was not working, lights were fluttering, so we asked if the bulb could...

I've been living overseas in different places for going on 10 years now. In Asia for about 6 years. Every time I come to Penang I come here. Why? Because it's minimal, cheap, clean and private. I could not stay in a dormitory, I need my own room. For under 30 ringgit I get that, if I want more, I... More

Everything you are looking for in a budget hotel. I discovered the place by wondering around, and for about the price other hotels charge for a dorm bed, I got my own room with window and a shower/sink inside. The room is basic, but spotless. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is right next to Little India, so... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend for a week and we had a great time. It is basic but spotlessly clean, shower attached to room and then shared toilet but if your a budget traveller then this holds no problems. As it is in a backstreet then its very quiet at night. Its possible to book travel at reasonable prices and... More

Our stay here was all good apart from the second morning when the staff started drilling and hammering our adjoining wall with the room next door, and they did this for the entire morning. After a little while I asked how much longer it would go on for and they offered us another room across the hall, but to be... More

Good, clean and well maintained budget hotel in a very central location. The staff is also a great source of information about the island! We're already looking forward to our next stay! Note that, although you have a shower in your room, the toilets are shared.

Stayed there many times over the years and the owner has put time and effort into the place over that time. It's basic but has a charm of it's own and has people come back time and again. The rooms vary in size and depending on what you want and like? The rooms upstairs at the front are huge, but... More
