Do agree that this hotel has seen it better days thru out the years but with the attractive price & within the city it should still be acceptable. Room is spacious and clean sheets. Bath area is clean . Location is good with F & B around the area with plenty of human traffics the moments you step out from... More

I stayed at the Hotel Malaysia for two nights and I was unimpressed. The front desk staff are not very helpful, and when asked questions they tended to mumble their answers. I had booked a room with a double bed, and was given a room with two single beds Breakfast was also disappointing, oily eggs, stale bread, and no real... More

On my way to Thailand holiday, I stop here. I thought staying only two nights, we will not need anything special. But this below that as well. Very dingy and dirty. The beds have bugs that kept us up all night. I am sure, this place must have been fancy back in the day. But now it is in need... More

This was my umpteenth time staying in this hotel for more than a decade, it used to be my top choice for accommodation when I visited the island, but sadly my most recent stay is a far cry from what it was many years ago. My room is not very clean and one of the light fixtures is not working.... More

Guys, I was there with my family (wife and 4 years old daughter) on 1st March 2014. We had a very bad experience. It's a very old hotel and they have bed bugs!!! I killed 2 of them and we have to on the light the whole night in order to protect ourselves (especially our daughter) from the bugs. We... More

we were brought to this place by a cabbie who had brought us from the border; it was expensive, especially considering how worn and barely clean our room was. the fixtures, mattress, and everything had obviously seen far better days, breakfast was the only high point, and even it was of erratic and inconsistent quality from item to item and...

We checked into this hotel after looking at lots of hotels in the area. It cost us about £25 per night including a decent buffet breakfast but for that price I would expect wifi to be included. Wifi is really important to us as we are travelling for a year & we had to pay 8 ringetts per device per... More

The hotel, being slightly older ( but undergoing renovations) has large rooms! with two comfortable lounge chairs and our had a wonderful view over the bay.....spectacular at night! Easy walking distance to Chinatown, Chew Jetty, Little India and all the wonderful old buildings, now being preserved thanks to a Unesco listing. Great staff, with good local knowledge, and excellent English

This is by far the worst place I've come across during my recent travel in Malaysia. I happened to be at this hotel as I arrived in Georgetown in the evening after a long journey and without having planned to overnight here. Thus I chose hotel Malaysia due to its central location which seems to be the only advantage (but... More
