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

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...

Small and cozy, but the quaint old charm will definitely rub off on you. And there's breakfast served at the balcony overlooking the Penang town. Staff are friendly and helpful. Ever-willing to offer advice for the best makan area in town. There's also a carpark area behind the hotel.

We decamped to Hotel Mingood after a disasterous night spent in a very expensive, noisy boutique heritage establishment in the heart of Georgetown. Hotel Mingood does not look much but we found it to be extremely good value and in a good location despite not being in the touristic heart. There is easy access to buses (one is a free... More

What I like about this hotel is: the bathtub, room quite spacy, lcd tv with few satellite channels, 1 elevator and free parking. What I dont really like is: breakfast too simple with bread and cereal only, room have an upgrade but could be better (cant imagine how bad was it before upgrade), got a window view of the next...

Must be one of the better value hotels in its rating category - not the Ritz but clean with large rooms and comfy beds Breakfast is basic but adequate if your on a tight budget . WiFi OK. fairly central. Had some family problems and had to leave early staff could not have been more helpful.

Arrived late in the night, and as it was during chinese new year it was almost impossible to find available rooms in the Old Town of Penang. Ended up in Hotel Mingood and paid 222 RM (!) for a night. It was their last room. What a joke! Room was old, dingy and uncomfortable with a noisy aircondition. The only... More
