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

There were only a few parking lots.breakfast choice was too minimal.overall a bad hotel.not worth the price. staying here spoiled our trip.

The hotel is well placed close to the Colonial district and walking distance to Armenian street and Little India. For those who want to tour the whole island the hop on hop off bus is good value 45 rm for 24 hours and you can catch at stop 11 on chulia near Little India .Gets you to all major attractions...

Room quite spacious but bathroom is in bad condition. Shower is not working and room quite dull and need serious refurbishment. Looks very vintage and restaurant only serve limited breakfast. Only good for sleeping since the bed are comfortable and big.

We wanted a place to stay for 3 weeks and did not want to keep changing hotels for this period. Having read the reviews we took a gamble and booked this hotel. As usual we keep an open mind and let the place do the talking. It was nothing fantastic to look at on the outside but we knew that... More

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
