Set back from the street with a front garden and terrace, it looks really stunning. The staff is not very personable. There is carpeting upstairs which is not very clean. I have a very good nose and was bothered by the stale smell. Good airco and showers. Simple usual hostel breakfast of toast, butter and jam.

This is the second time I have stayed in this lodge and i loved it. First, its cheap and second, its clean. More over, the place is cosy,although its not the typical hotel. One thing that i dislike is the mosquitos, other than that, a good place to stay for a short gateway and enjoy Penang Island.

The hotel is well located, near the center and the restaurants. The staff was friendly and our room and the shared bathroom were average: good and clean, but nothing outstanding. We particularly liked the breakfast.

We stayed here with my fiancee for five days in June 2014 in a double ensuite. Hutton Lodges location was good and it was near to the bus stops, it was clean and new, but other than that it was average. Rooms were ok size and clean, bathroom had a great shower. During our five night stay, no one came... More

Ini adalah kunjungan perdana kami ke Penang. Setelah cukup dipusingkan dengan banyaknya pilihan mengenai akomodasi, akhirnya kami memilih Hutton Lodge karena selain harga yang ditawarkan terjangkau dan tidak memerlukan kartu kredit untuk booking (kebetulan kami berdua tidak memiliki kartu kredit), penginapan ini menawarkan jasa laundry -- yang tidak semua hotel backpacker menyediakannya. Selain itu, tepat di seberang hotel ada rumah... More

Yes, it's a good place, but book early as there are not that many rooms and they fill quickly, especially on the weekend. I loved the location, the bed was comfortable (apart from the rogue mosquito that came into the bathroom as the window in there is not glassed in - so bring a coil or similar). Even the pillow...

The room was clean and the location is close to Georgetown. The air con and shower worked good and the service was average. They provide fairly dependable wifi it cut out a few times. It is an ok stay for the price

We stayed four nights and enjoyed our stay. If you are expecting a full on hotel you might be disappointed, think hostel/guesthouse style and it will exceed expectations! Location is a short walk to the heart of Georgetown action, but in a bit quieter area. Hutton lodge is beautiful heritage building on the outside. Inside the rooms are fairly basic,... More

The hotel is a bit far away from the real action. A 20 minute walk to Little India for example. Thats to far away. The staff is helpful and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. So the quality is good, but the price is a bit overcharge. The breakfast is a fine location but is still Malaysian: Simple. I'm sure... More

The hostel is in a good location and it is easily walkable to all of Georgetown. The rooms and facilities are basic but clean. There is free wifi throughout. A free breakfast of bread and jam is provided.
