Muntri House is a hostel offering different types of rooms - from private (single or double) rooms to dorms, all with shared bathroom facilities. While air-conditioners are provided, in case of our room hot air was simply pumped into a leaky chimney, which made the entire process somewhat ineffective. The guesthouse has an excellent location within walking distance to major... More

Stumbled upon and stayed at a heritage homestay guesthouse in the heart of Georgetown-Penang. The delightfully redesigned place provides an intimate, cozy and accomodating ambience with a touch of a homely-feel for a pleasant stay for us. We will surely go back again on our next visit.

This guesthouse bears the memories of the 70s or earlier. It preserves a lot of 'oldies' and mix with the present, it give the back to future feel to the stayers. The location of this guesthouse is rather convenient for most travelers. All the basic needs, food, beverage, alcohol, necessities and must-see areas, are reachable within 10 minutes walk.

The building was beautiful, the staff friendly and the location was nice and central. The communal areas were especially nice and it was great that you could get free tea/coffee/cold drinking water througout the day plus a nice breakfast in the morning! We had a large double room which was very clean. Even though they obviously have tried to keep... More

Shared bathroom facilities were clean and functional.Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious but let down by portable air con units that were not really up to the job.

The converted heritage shop house is beautiul with the public/communal areas being extremely attractive. The staff are helpfull and friendly. The location is perfect for everything, food, sights, shopping and only a short walk from the pier. However, the rooms have paper thin walls and the portable aircon units are loud and not very effective. All rooms are shared bathrooms... More

Hungover and sleep deprived, I happened upon Muntri House after a few wild nights at a party hostel around the corner; it was a welcome respite. The place is beautiful. The staff is friendly. The beds are comfortable. Everything is kept very clean. There's a lot of talk in the other reviews about the amazing breakfasts-- the variety offered, the... More

People tell us there’s no such thing as a budget boutique hotel and we know that superb service with heritage concepts rooms all come at a price but it doesn’t have to be at Muntri House.
