Little Penang is situated in a quiet residential area. They offer rooms without and with en suite bathroom. Rooms are clean. Bathrooms are equipped with warm shower. Room without en suite bathroom (room no 8) on the first floor is rather squeezy and close to an automatic water pump so every few minutes you will be disturbed by the pump... More

Excellent information provided by Raymond, lots of maps covering public transport and tourist areas. We stayed in the Lavender room, which was comfortable, with an en suite shower room. The only issue we had was this room is also next to the shared bathroom, and unfortunately there were three very noisy/giggly guests staying in the room which used this shared... More

I loved staying here. I would come back if I return to Penang. What made my friend and me choose this when we were actually looking for a hotel was the really good reviews, and we don't regret it. We were in Dandelion, since the twin room was taken, but since it had its own bathroom we didn't mind sharing,... More

We stayed here during a longer trip and found excellent hospitality. I was ill and was being taken really good care, including hot lemon. We even got a lift to the ferry terminal and had our ferry tickets to Langkawi booked for us - brilliant service. It is a true home stay - a home away from home.

The staff very nice enough, but this is a very basic room with many disadvantages. The room itself is tiny, as is the bathroom. The shower is basically over the toilet bowl. The room smelled musty as there was no air circulation. Worst of all--the mosquitos! They bit us all night, and we had a hard time sleeping.

The homestay is located just off Jalan Burmah and therefore convenient to some hawkers area, although not walking distance to the UNESCO Heritage area. Our hosts were pleasant and helpful, and offered us maps and brochures of attractions in Penang. We took one 2-single bed room with shared bathroom, which were both clean.

Pros This is a very cozy and heartwarming place. While it is slightly more expensive than your usual Hostle, you rooms that are more private. The rooms are clean and spacious with individually controlled aircon. The bed is very comfortable. I got the single private room with shared batheroom, but the suite have its own private batheroom. Although theres no... More
