The location is just nice and it brings the feeling of nostalgic. Very peaceful environment with nicely decorated classic interiors. It had all we needed and the reception is very helpful. I am very happy for price too, will definitely go back to Muntri House again!

Tucked away from the busy Chulia Street, Muntri House speaks character and chill vibes through the Peranakan style architecture and friendly staff. We got a room upstairs with good AC and fan, the shower is great and there's minimal socializing. Helpful staff and convenient laundry service (cheaper than going to laundromat), they also provide walking tour map and commute advice,... More

Had a really good stay here, reception are very helpful and the location is perfect in the middle of George Town. The room was very spacious and clean and it's great value for money. In terms of food it couldn't be better with plenty of great restaurants and niche cafes within walking distance (with some even on the road)

The guesthouse is in a heritage building and much of the original features of the property can be seen here. The reception area has a soothing garden feature with old-style tile flooring. I stayed in one of the private rooms with shared bathroom. The rooms are the typical Southeast Asia guesthouse style of partitioned box rooms. In this case the... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Muntri House. I stayed in the female dorm room. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the a/c was great to have in the hot and humid weather. The shared bathroom was nearby. My favorite thing about this guesthouse is all the space for relaxing: there are multiple rooms with chairs, a hammock,... More

We stayed for 4 nights in one of the rooms on the upper floor. The room was basic but looked clean and was really okay to sleep in. Walls are paper thin though so you definitely need ear plugs. Staff was nice, polite and helpful with laundry and bus tickets. Breakfast was toast and peanut butter and jelly and oranges,... More

Room was okay. Just find it strange that I booked for 4 pax (all ladies) in a mixed dorm room but the mgmt shifted us to an all-girls room. And another strange thing is that they insisted which bed you should take. I mean, if I want the empty lower bunk bed then it should be it instead of asking... More

We booked the double room for two nights and the room was quite spacious. It was clean and very comfortable. There were two power plugs in the room, the air conditioning worked great and a mounted wall fan was provided too though we didnt use it. The only cons of the room is that the walls were very thin.

We have stayed at Muntri House for three days and there is absolutely nothing to complain about. It has one of the best value for money that we found in all of Asia. It is very clean, well organised, cosy and everything works. Beds are comfy and it is quiet, we slept very well. There is good water pressure and... More
