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.

Went to Penang and booked this hostel with a group of 20 cyclist, very bicycle friendly hostel that lets you park your bicycles at the back of the hostel with security tag required to access. Clean washroom and comfortable room with decent price. Service is just normal. Overall not too bad.

I quite happy to choose Ryokan. Staff is quite friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi was fast, beds comfy, best breakfast, and location good. Not only the location is just perfect spot. Quiet surrounding, but actually really close to the busy street of Chulia and Penang. Near many good restaurants and also George Town's heritage. I will coming back again !!!

First of all, the staffs are attentive. The room was decent enough providing the basic necessities we need. Power plug and individual lighting for each bed. The shower was great! Love the stream of water which is so like waterfall. The breakfast was good enough as I did not know it was provided before arrival. Simple fried egg was delicious.... More

We traveled as a group for work, thus we did not spend a lot of time in Ryokan itself. Pros: Cozy rooms are good for sharing with friends, WiFi, great showers (when there was water). Staff are friendly and did their best to accommodate our requests. Location is central. Cons: During our three day/two night stay, there was a consistent... More

I stayed two nights at this hostel upon my arrival in Malaysia. I was pleasantly surprised with its quality. The room and bed were comfortable. Each bed had a shelf, light and powerpoint(s) on the wall for electronic devices. The major negative were the bathrooms. You have to collect your toilet paper before entering the stall. You wouldn't want to... More

Passed by Ryokan Muntri the last time I was in Penang and it seemed pleasant and clean from the outside so decided to book a 4-bed dorm all to ourself for 1 night. You can't beat the location, it's on a quiet street yet just behind a busier Lebuh Chulia with all Georgetown attractions (murals and food) within walking distance.... More
