Comfortable enough for a stay with friends. Easy access to town and if you are driving, there are parking lots provided with entry fees rm5. Dont trust the pircture since it is marketing strategy. Overall this place is comfy.

So first of all this place isn't the easiest to find. Hardly any signage considering it tucked away behind another business. Anyway I found it eventually. Reception guy was nice enough but was then informed that they had double booked the Superior King En-Suite. Was told not to worry as he had booked me in at their sister hotel on... More

They provide toast breakfast and you can refill for mineral water. This was my first and last appointment to Red Inn Cabana, better... More

This place is near the bus stops, food court and chocolate museum!!! For other places you can walk from hostel to camera museum and you'll see the bicycle rental next to camera museum, you can bike around Georgetown by bicycle! Despite everything this place so cheap and free breakfast!!!

It's just an average inn. Nothing much to shout about. Photos are different than the actually thing. The air cond temperature is unpredictable. It's next to a food court where they have karaoke session on Saturday hence it's loud and noisy till 3am. Just manage your expectation.
