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.

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
