We stayed at Hotel Mingood for one night after we decided to spend another day in George Town and most hotels (including the one we stayed in first) were fully booked because of the Chinese New Year holidays. We booked it through an Airbnb ad that did not give us the impression to book a room in a big old... More

Hotel has a nice lobby area with refreshments for sale. The room we stayed in was ok and we had a little balcony and all, i don't know what for as there is only a view of dilapidated buildings. The room is spacious and the breakfast which was included was a good breakfast. It is a budget hotel so don't... More

the rooms are adequate with all the basic amenities with even free wifi. however, for kids or people used to stay in 3 - 5 star hotels, it might be a 'scary' place to stay as the whole setup is so old world charm that one might usually associate with 'scary movies'. but rest assure, the hotel is value for...

The hotel offer is clean, all the basic needs are there. Clean bed, comfy pillow, clean towel and clean toilet. The room I was in is facing the main road, a bit noisy at times due to house and shops opposite but I wanted a balcony to its a trade off. Stayed on the 4th floor, can hear the dragging... More

My parents have been going back to this hotel years after years even though it needs a massive renovation. The place is extremely dated but the service they provide is amazing. Every single staff is very smiley and helpful. The location of this hotel couldn't be any better as you are just a few minutes walk away from plenty of... More

I like visiting George Town and I chose this hotel because it is near the old town and the management would handle my Thai visa application. The hotel needs investment and a refurb to bring it up to standard but my room was a good size, everything worked and the staff were very helpful. They arranged my Thai visa efficiently.... More

When we first arrived we weren't that happy with our choice as the rooms are old and tired. Then you see that whilst it is old it spotlessly clean in our room. We have a balcony, loads of space and the team gave us brand new pillows. The reception team are so helpful and friendly. The ladies serving breakfast are... More

If you're looking for a budget, quiet, average requirements on room and most importantly you're driving here, this is definitely the one. Hotel - good location that nearby the main road, Jalan Penang, Quiet, average quality that matches the money you've paid, classic designed lobby and resting place, free parking (save cost), don't expect too much, it's a hotel with...
