A nice budget hotel near the historical part of Georgetown. While the building itself is very nice, the hotel itself is basic and feels like it. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it's a perfectly good, affordable base to explore from. Many rooms use a common bathroom, which is large and clean (and they thoughtfully provide flip-flops). Don't know... More

Last time we stayed here it was a world away from our experience this time. Six years ago we stayed in the same room as this time and we were really impressed. This time, management has definitely changed and we were distinctly unimpressed. The showers (most rooms have no private bathroom) are still hot with plenty of water and are... More

This is my second stay here. Nothing much to expect. Value for money since we only have to pay rm40 each person. Very old place but clean room. We choose this place since it have car park. Basic breakfast which was okay .

We stayed for 3 nights as the position of the hotel was the deciding factor, being in the old town of Georgetown it is in walking of little India, love lane, shopping malls and china town, the hotel itself was very old and basic with a musty smell but absolutely fine and clean. A basic breakfast was supplied, no choices... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights. Hutton lodge is a 5 minute walk to little India, Chinatown, lebuh chulia, love lane etc. Rooms are clean and the aircon is good and cold. Breakfast of tea and toast is provided free of charge. Staff are helpful and friendly. Perfect for exploring Georgetown.

We are satisfied with our stay in Hutton Lodge. People working there are very nice (except one guy but he was only one time on the reception-at night). The man who is working in the morning is great, very helpful. We were in room 202 and it is close to the street so it's noisy. Rooms was basic, sheets was... More

Good location, friendly staff and clean rooms & public washrooms. Very accessible to all the eateries. Limited parking available. Old vintage bungalow mansion converted to several rooms. Some rooms have attached bathrooms while some use common bathrooms

I stayed a few times here and tried the Family Room, Double, and Single. The rooms were indeed very clean, including the common bathroom. If you are not staying in the Family Room upstairs, you need to walk to the end of the corridor to access the common bathroom, but that is not a very long distance. When we were... More

My wife, niece and I stayed in two rooms at the Hutton Lodge in Georgetown for 5 nights. The outside of the building is impressive, but the rooms are nothing special. The air conditioning worked well, but the shared bathrooms were quite a distance down the hall. These bathrooms were consistently well maintained at all hours of the day. The... More
