“An ok choice, the location is the key”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

The rooms at Broadway are uninspiring, but decent enough. The bed was ok, the room was relatively clean and basic. The bathroom smelled bad but didn't seem dirty

The best thing about this hotel is the location as you can walk to everything - Little India, Chinatown and the waterfront. If you can put up with it, Broadway's a decent enough choice.

we have stayed for five nights in triple room and the air-cond is cold cos' it's new. It's locate almost centre of the heritage core so most of the attractions are in walking distance.There is no kettle in the room so will be inconvenience to get hot water.The staffs are friendly and helpful.Over all it's worth to stay if you are not too particular traveler.

Room Tip: Room 11 at First Floor might too tight for triple

My wife and i, both mid-sixties, booked in online, and stayed for 4 days. Newly renovated, the rooms are CLEAN with clean attached toilets, hot water etc. 2 minutes away from Little India, Chulia street, and the bus stops for most routes. Ample choice of food stalls minutes away, for all meals. The 303 bus from outside Nibong Bus Terminal drops you 200 mtrs from this hotel.
We recommend this hotel for a comfortable stay. The staff are very pleasant and helpful.

If you are in penang and intended to discover the BEST of Penang, it is the place to stay. Most of the heritage sites are 10 - 12 minute walking distance.

You can go to any part of george town from here easily and take the FREE bus for CITY tour

The main bus terminal is only 10 minutes walk, and chulia and muntri street ( Backpackers Zone ) is only 5 minutes on foot.

As it name suggests, it is mainly for the budget travelers. I brought my parents and were in a family room and paid super pick price RM 150 ( normal price is RM 130 for 4 person)

The room is good with new air conditioner and new furniture. They renovated the hotel few months ago and the rooms are still in good condition

As a old building itself, all the rooms have attach bathroom and they provide towel and basic toiletries

The management is really good and helpful. They even assisted me with finding the cheap transport to Cameron Highland

We all are really happy with the room + hotel + customer service

Highly recommended for Budget travellors

Room Tip: Try to take Room 14 or 15 in the First floor .... spacious and face little india.

We stayed there for one night and were really happy about it. Clean and big room, hot shower, aircon, tv (if you want), wifi... Friendly and helpul staff. Good location.
If you can afford some more ringgit for accomodation, go there and not to the Love Lane..we wished we had gone there the first night

After reaching Gtown we planned to stay in a different place. But the attitude and overall impression made us look for a different space. AND GOOD 'cause we found this wonderful, welcoming and all you need to have a good sleep place. Look no further, book Broadway budget Hotel in Gtown. THEY ARE JUST GR8 ;) Double with bathroom, tv, free WiFi was only 80 MYR!!!! If ever in Gtown again we will stay at the same place :)

Room Tip: Room 34, double with bathroom & tv.

We booked for 1 night (70MR, no tv) so we could get a feel for the area and decide if we like the hotel. Location wise we found it perfect. Between KOMTAR and the ferry pier it meant we were a 5 minute walk to both of the main bus stations in Georgetown so had easy bus access to all the attractions on the island and being in little India we had great food options within a 2 min walk. Add in the fact that the hotel has been renovated within the last month we really enjoyed this place and ended up adding another 6 nights to our stay here. The staff were all friendly and the island in general is full of good things to do. One tip (for Malaysia in general!) bring ear plugs to quieten the noise of the 6am call to mosque!!
