“Basic and expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

The lady at reception is just not nice at all. The room was nice, clean and big; bed linen not so clean. The old guy who show you the room was very friendly but looked to be tired of life.
I spent 1 night and it was enough because the atmosphere is not funny.
The hotel is placed in front of the chinese night market so it's good for dinner.
I went in february 2011.

Another no thrills, basic but clean enough.
No meals or breakfast and no kettle in room.
SHower with hot water. Occasionally get ants in the rooms due to previous occupants.

Important note! No Internet and no TV Channels in English Language

Located at far end of busy street, best in late evening when street stalls open for food. Near The Malaysia Hotel.
Classic, old Chinese-British Colonial style building which backs onto a cemetary.

.

Room Tip: I have no idea, sorry. Most, if not all rooms have steel railings on the windows anyway!

I stayed at the Peking at the end of the month, looking for accommodation that would not break the bank and stumbled upon the Peking Hotel. Run by a family of Chinese/Malay decent, I found the service good, respectful and helpful. The room was simple with hot shower and the bed comfortable enough. Located on Penang Road, across from the night food market and near the ferry service, with taxi stand just across the street, what more could I ask for. Very Good!!

Room Tip: I did not hear any extraneous noise at night so very quiet and a good nights sleep
