I started out in one room, but was so unhappy with it because the a/c did nothing to help cool the room down, I was moved to a "renovated" room, which wasn't much better, but the a/c was effective. Consider the following comments to be about the renovated room (except for comments about the balcony). The relatively good things: Large... More

If you can avoid it then do so. I only ended up here because I booked a visarun from Phuket with a company called TVR visarun. The accomodation was supposed to be at banana boutique hotel but on arrival it was full and some of us were sent to this hole. I imagine this is how they get a lot... More

This hotel is so tired and run down. Our room has water seepage on the wall and ceiling. The carpet is wet and dirty! Everything in the room is old and tired. Room is not soundproof. It's my worst nightmare!!!!!

Hotel Mingood was located conveniently on the border of the Georgetown historic district and comfortable walking distance to all attractions in Georgetown. Hotel rooms were adequate and clean but a little dated. Breakfast was pleasant and basic in the top level. My only issue was the morning we left, the credit card machine wasn't working and the staff expected me... More

I booked this hotel through asiatravel.com. The only good point is location which is near to heritage place of Georgetown otherwise rooms were really shabby and washroom was among worst. I didn't try for their restaurant as I wanted to see the eatery outside. For the same price, I stayed in Hotel B-suite while return which is fabulous though B-suite... More

Average kind of place, fine for the price. Room a bit gloomy and dated, but clean enough and not cramped. Included breakfast is just toast, cereal and oranges, but there's nothing to stop you bringing in a yoghurt or other fruit as well - rooms have fridges. Located close to 101 and free Central Area Transit buses, so easy to... More

Staying here for a week on Business early November. It is only 200 metres from Penang Road and easily accessible. Our room was already ready when we had check- in by 12:00 noon. The receptionists were friendly and offered us helps on attractions. The room was a bit out- dated that needs somewhat renovation, but rather spacious. The cleaning maids... More

18/06/2014 to 25/06/2014 Not a bad hotel, rooms clean but on the tatty side. Good location for buses and sights. No restaurant but some good options nearby. Hot and cold water, TV & WiFi in room. Recommended.

The staff were friendly and helpful however I could not recommend this hotel. The double bed was a little small. The bath towels were a disgrace. They were very old, worn through and very small size. The blanket on the bed was very thin, old and too small. The decor was dated and had seen better days. Our room had... More

This is a good budget hotel, well situated for restaurants and within reasonable walking distance of most of the colonial centre. The rooms are large, and the services - air conditioning, water, internet - all work perfectly adequately. But the whole place seems a little tired and in need of a coat of paint, some new fixtures, and brighter lighting.... More
