We stayed three nights and found this guesthouse to be a good value. Like many guesthouses of this type in George Town, the walls are thin and the shared bathrooms are not in the most excellent condition. Especially if you get a room near the lobby, you may want earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The rooms are very... More

We stayed here one night. Staff is helpful, speaks english and location is great. However the room (single bedroom) was one with no windows and right next to the common bathrooms. No windows means absolutely no ventilation. so we had a choice: to suffocate or put the A/C on. A/C does provide relief, but this unit literally sounded like jet... More

This is a basic, budget-friendly place. You certainly get what you pay for and so our expectations were low. Eoi was welcoming and friendly upon arrival, giving us a map and tips about places to visit and how to use the public transport. There are rooms with a private bath available, though these were booked during our stay so we... More

Good central location and a short walk to some sights and a CAT bus stop. Room and bathroom clean. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. For a short stay in the interesting part of Georgetown that does not cost much this is recommended.

The staff Uncle Eoi and Hey and the housekeeper are extremely friendly and informative and there are always someone to talk to. The rooms are enough for a good sleep and with adequate toilet facilities. It is also nice to have water available at any time for FREE.

Cute old but renovated house with clean rooms and super nice staff who will help out wherever possible. I always respect good customer service! It is located close to everything in town and some REALLY good Chinese food and tandoori shops (like Capitan!) Free: wifi, breakfast, 24-hr tea/coffee, towels and linen - what more can you ask for at this... More

We left KL around 7:55AM bound to Penang by Malindo Air (trust me this airline offers one of the cheapest rate in Southeast Asia). We only plan to have a day tour of Penang but we need a place where to lodge our bags and take a shower after the tour since we are going back to KL via bus... More

We stayed for 5 nights at the Guest Inn. The good: -staff were very friendly and helpful -central location -affordable The bad: -mosquito-infested bathrooms, soaked with water (shower was combined) with sliding doors that didn't always lock -wooden floors and paper thin walls amplify the noise: when other guests walked by, it literally sounded like a herd of rhinos! -wifi...

Nice staff and delicious free coffee! Room was modest with only bed and table. Window was made from many pieces and you couldn't complete close it so the traffic noise from the street was loud. Doors of the shared bathrooms were broken.

This is new place. I only stayed for a short night as I came back from Langkawi very late in the evening and need to take onward flight very early the next day so I decided not to waste money for a more expensive place. So it was indeed very cheap at Guest Inn Muntri, the location is very good,... More
