Location is great. Near PAH and Guerney. Very convenient. Staff is helpful and friendly. We had a room with shared bathroom. And that's rather a minus. I had a problem with the toom doorlock. And as all staffs have gone out instruction was given by phone. and I had a call late in the night to help open the main... More

First thing to point out is this is a home stay or boutique hotel, so don't expect typical hotel rooms with toilets in each room. Just think of it as a shared house and you will not be disappointed. Rooms are clean, owners will help out with anything, location is excellent, price point is good, what more could you want.... More

We rented the whole house 4 bedrooms, only one room had attached bathroom, the other 3 rooms had to share a bathroom, that's a minus. This bathroom had no ventilation fan. Rooms were clean, tidy and had fresh bed linens unfortunately my room had a slight lingering odour and no windows at all, not even a ventilation fan, that's a... More

The homestay was very clean and really gave us the feeling as at home. The operator was helpful and guided us to familarise with the surrounding shopping plaza and shortest ways to the main roads where buses were available. However, the homestay was not easy to locate though it is not far from the main road. The accomodation fee was... More

Only problem was taxi driver initially could not find the place, however once there a great place, great location very close to Midland and Gurney Mall's. Meals not provided but there are enough things to get a quick snack in the lounge, just drop the money into the communal tin, otherwise lots of good cafes/restaurants very close by. Also great...

The best thing about 12 Inn is the people working there. They are so sincere and make you feel welcome. You can make friends with them and they'll remember you. I had breakfast with them one morning and we talked about difference in culture, Penang and etc. I really enjoyed their company. The manager can arrange whatever you want to... More

I stayed for a total of 6 nights and really enjoyed the whole experience! It's situated in a residential area so it's very quiet and laid back, and it's also within walking distance to a hugh shopping mall where you can get anything you may need. The hostel is very well maintained, sheets, towels, bathrooms, and kitchen are very clean.... More

It is converted to homestay from a double storey house. We enjoyed the harmony environment that made us fell like we were at home. They provide towels,... More
