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

The Mingood should change there name the Mingreat. Excellent location very close to the main restaurants and bars but still quiet. Super affordable and good value for money, friendly and helpful staff, this is great place to stay on a budget in Georgetown.

We stayed here for one night as part of a a tour. The lobby is fine and staff seemed pleasant. The room we were placed in was terrible. The walls were all different colours (dirty green, pink and off white), it smelt very smoky and the bedsheets were dirty. The bathroom had an infestation of ants and the mouldy shower... More

Cheap and pay for the price. Stay for 2days at family room. Aircond cannot be adjustable so it stays cool. Breakfast was good and nice view from the top. Perfect for budget stay and last minute booking.

Booked at the last minute so we didn't have many options for our budget. I picked the hotel for it's location - the core of the town pretty much walking distance from the hotel. Most of the buses pass right by the hotel or the nearby Penang or Transfer road. The hotel is old, but the room has the standard... More

This Hotel might not look much from the outside, but once you enter, you will find friendly helpful staff with a very welcoming attitude. I read the reviews but when i initially saw the place I was a little disappointed. However they rooms are big, they have a nice breakfast on the 5th floor and the staff from reception to... More
