I was recommended this place by a friend, and booked by private email. Easy to find, this hotel is in Little India, a vibrant and colourful part of Georgetown, walking distance from most attractions. It is minutes from the shore, near Fort Cornwallis. The attraction for me was price. Penang is more expensive than some Asian areas, and I am... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of weeks because it was the cheapest place we could find that would give us a double room with 'air conditioning' (I'll get to that). They charged us RM35 per night. The room was very small with no window. There was a double bed with an uncomfortable mattress, a... More
