I would have given a rating of 4 stars if the hotel has kept the mosquito nuisance at bay. My friends and I were greeted by those pest the moment we step into the hotel. Perhaps the hotel could have prepare more mosquito traps? Finding for parking nearby the hotel is another inconvenience, as the hotel does not provide parking... More

great building, interior is like your home. if you like heritage building and looking for places to stay. here is the right choice. its included breakfast. then, if u guys solo backpacker same with me, ryokan is the best place. near to komtar. just walking from there. otherwise, if you guys looking for nighlife, just few minutes walking. recommended.

Clean, white, comfy & attentive to the great details! We stayed for a night here. Not sure about the check-in process as it was handled by my friends. But definitely LOVE the dorms!! It was neat & complements well to the flawless white interior. Each bed comes with individual power point, personal lamp, a small compartment attaching to the wall... More

We where very happy with our 3 night stay at Ryokan during our quick trip to Penang. We had to check in pretty late during the night as our flight had been delayed, we had emailed the hostel to say that our flight had been delayed and we would be arriving very early in the morning. As we arrived at... More

Was very very satisfied with my stay. The staff do serve with a smile, but it is looks very forced, other than the lady with a tattoo and the chinese guy, makes making enquiries and requests a bit unpleasant. Rules are given but not enforced, while i was there, there happened to be a bunch of teens staying (not that... More

Stayed here for 1 night last weekend. The location and service is excellent. The rooms are clean, toilets are clean as well. Checking in and out is pretty much easy and hassle free. One thing to note, the floors are made out of wood, and not everyone knows and understand the concept of "walking quietly". While I was there, there... More

This place was definitel our best stay in out whole SEA backpacking. Located to almost everything (if not, the busstop is just 3 minutes from there), great 24h service, clean beds and rooms. Also is it an old pre-war building which still have the same wooden floors from then. Very cool place!

This is the second time return to the same hotel and it is still as lovely as it was. The hotel was already a lil tired, hence the management was trying to do some refurbishment, and I am looking forward to its new feature in my coming trip!

This is my second time staying this is wonderful place and I think it's still a great place to stay in Penang. Penang has changed a lot since my last visit but it's a good thing. A lot of cafe and museum has opened just along Muntri street which is only good news for the visitors staying in Ryokan.

It's a great experience to stay in Ryokan @ Muntri Street where the rooms were with wooden floor concept. Basic facilities are provided with reasonable price. Good located where you can reach the famous/must go interested places by just walking or rent a bicycle.
