Unfortunately our memory of this hotel is not so good, because of the incapable receptionists who couldn't even tell us where the main bus station in the city is. Which is no problem but at least she could have checked online?!? Well, she didn't even try to help us or at least tell us whom else we could ask. Even... More

We went with family of 5 persons & had booked 2 rooms. Our stay here for 2 nights was really nice. Good value for money. All staff were co-operative. Rooms are a bit small but the arrangement in the room is really nice. I will definately recommend this Hotel. Pros : In the Georgetown area & very near to Little... More

In November of this year (2013) my wife and I spent six nights at the Victoria Inn in Georgetown, Penang. Our stay there was a positive experience. The hotel is quite small (four storeys) and within walking distance of the ferry terminal (even with heavy cases we found it an easy walk). The immediate surrounds are very quiet by Penang... More

Price list on website is higher than walk in. Aircon not cold even though it's set at 16 degree celcius. Wireless service slow and expires 12 hours even though a day package is bought. In toilet, the pole for shower curtain is not secured well and collapsed.

Small Hotel across the street next to Ferry Pier. Rooms not very big, but for a few days ok. WiFi has to be paid in all areas of the hotel. Rooms get very hot during the day because facing the south and you can run the A/C only when in room (if it is running). Included breakfast with option eastern... More

Have stayed one night to transit to the airport in next day morning. A very good location within the UNESCO area which accessible to all public transport terminal (Jetty, bus, taxi) and food. Room wise no complaint at all, clean and likely considered a boutique hotel. Nevertheless service is still the main issue when staying a hotel, they hire all... More

While the hotel itself is acceptable, when I arrived I noticed a sign advising of drilling next door. I asked the guy on reception if it was likely to be noisy before paying for 2 nights but he told me I would hear nothing. I paid and having arrived from a night bus went straight to bed. Less than 1... More

1. Location Hotel is located just a walk away from the jetty, bus & taxi stations, which makes it very convenient. You just need to cross the sky bridge and walk a little further down to the hotel. Next to the hotel is a hawker stall which sells breakfast & lunch, makes it easier for you to get food around.... More

Comfortable bed. Air conditioning uses inverter, so pretty environmentally friendly. Attached toilet comes with heater but the unit I had was a little noisy, at least hot water is available. Walls and door a little thin, guests or staff can be heard walking along the corridor. Counter staff friendly and efficient. We had free breakfast but only tried the coffee...worst... More

Victoria Inn is located just near the ferry terminal at Penang. I was exhausted so needed somewhere to sleep so even though a bit overpriced (99 ringit on sun to thurs, 110 other nights with breakfast). I stayed 2 days. The staff had no idea of local services (even laundry!) and were unwilling to find out. No local maps. Razor... More
