We stayed there for 3 nights. The hotel is very near to Komtar bus station and shopping malls. You can find a lot of hawker stalls in the area days and nights. There's a dim sum house next to the hotel which open every morning, you can find the best dim sum in town over there.

This hotel is located in Chinatown near Komtar Kompleks which has a shopping mall, bus station, restaurants etc. It is a short walk from Little India area, the main strip of bars and many of the tourist sights such as Penang museum, Fort Cornwallis, Old City Hall and many mosques and temples. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable, offering... More

We stayed at the New Asia Hotel for three nights in December 2012 as part of a tour month tour around SE Asia. We initially booked one of the cheaper double rooms for $28 a night - when we arrived our room wasn't quite ready but the gentleman we met on reception was very friendly and helpful and offered us...

We arrived at the hotel at 10PM, since we'd been travelling all day from Koh Phangan to Penang on minibuses, taxis, boats and pretty much every vehicle imaginable. The staff were very nice and polite, I think they prefer you to inform them if you arrive after 5PM, which we had done by email the day before. The room was... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel recently. Pro: We arrived early in the morning by overnight train from Kuala Lumpur and the hotel graciously allowed us to check in early to our room. Room was clean and decently big and had a balcony, which was a nice place to watch the night stalls on the busy street below. Hotel... More

The hotel staff are lovely and this is a good option for Georgetown. It is easy to reach the historic parts and also handy for the Komtar by terminal nearby. The rooms are spotless and spacious and are top value for what you pay. Unfortunately for us there was some roadworks going on outside and it was ridiculously loud -... More

This budget hotel is a wonderful place to stay if you are travelling in Georgetown. The staff there are very friendly and helpful which makes you feel like home especially with the way how the interior was built. We travel in 3 person and so we add on an extra bed for RM10 per night. The room is not very... More

Though I was a solo traveller, I stayed in the large Family Room as this was the only one available. Finding the hotel can be a bit difficult, but once there, it is easy to relocate one of the two entrances that front onto different streets. Note that there are no elevators so one must carry all luggage up the... More

Stayed here for 5 days early January. Located right in the middle of Chinatown, it can be a little intimidating when you first arrive. However when you settle in, you will soon realise that this place is all you need in Georgetown. Rooms are basic but serve all your needs for a budget price. Staff are all excellent, especially reception... More
