“Best! I love staying here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is the best accomodation i ever stay in after being anooyed by rude thais in some hotels at thailand. I ended my trip at penang as single female traveler and really feel comfort and enjoy during my trip here. Everything is worth with the price! The bed (i stay at dorm, asking for female room mates if possible and they give me the empty dorm so i can kept the whole room for my self! I really appreciate this), the toilet is so clean with hot water, and breakfast is okay (with the RM 30 i paid,it was so much okay), location at hutton, near transfer street and penang street is perfect to everywhere (i even could walk to komtar station to catch the first bus to airport at early in the morning) and staff was so helpful. And then dont forget the huttonlodge building itself is so charming. I will be back here again, for sure!

Room Tip: 108 dorm room is so quite if you are solo and choose stay in dorm.

Stayed there in December 2012 with a friend. The locations is just perfect, in the middle of everything. TOTAL value for money. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite comfy and clean. The common bathroom was quite clean but not the best idea ever. Breakfast is more of a snack really.
would definitely be my choice if i head to Penang again.

Room Tip: Make sure to pick a room with a private bathroom.

Clean friendly good value b&b in a great location, rolling distance to the bus stop outside 7-11 on Jln Penang all the culinary delights on offer in Georgetown. Wifi accessible on ground floor but patchy on 1st floor.

Travelling solo, there is a lounge & courtyard but I didn't find these to be the place to meet other travelers. Other guests seemed to be mostly couples and families.

Overall highly recommended though, I'd stay here again.

This charming old house, greatly located in the old town, made a great stop over place. Super efficient and easy booking procedure, family room (4) at 150 RM with breakfast (coffee,juice and toasts), nice terraces, AC, clean, what more to ask!

This place has a good location, friendly stuff, AC in the room, cozy outside terrace, free WiFi and breakfast (although small). The rooms are good maintained and good decorated, common bathrooms and showers always fresh and clean. We could stay here again if we would go back to Georgetown.

We stayed here for two nights in a double room with private bathroom. Very cheap at just RM 100 per night. Wi-fi is free, which was an added bonus. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is also included - it is standard, but good. Location is also ideal - we got around to the main sites on foot and was in a safe area. Would definitely recommend for backpackers.

I don't have any very strong feelings about this place. It was functional - double rooms ensuite with aircon in a good location with good wifi.

Breakfast was fairly standard and included. No complaints except having to pay to use Internet on shared computers. Wifi is free.

Reception were helpful and organised onward travel to KL, with a shuttle bus to the station.
