I booked this hotel on Agoda, so did not see the room before I committed to three nights. If I had seen the room before-hand there was no way I would have stayed here! It was like a prison cell, as tiny as a closet, with no window and no ventilation. I paid 48 ringett, and even had to share a bathroom. Maybe if it had its own bathroom it would have been somewhat acceptable, but at that price to have a room that size with no window and to share a bathroom was ridiculous. The bathrooms were new, but so dirty. It was very unpleasant having to shower. The building is old, with wooden floors, and everytime someone walked past the room it sounded like a stomping elephant. They advertise as serving breakfast with their over-priced room rates, but then sheepishly told me bfast was just do it yourself white bread toast. The location is excellent and it is cleaner than the guest-houses on Chulia, but give this place a few months and it will be a dump, since they don't even clean now. A real disappointment.

Stayed here for a few days and it was great. It has a really cozy feeling to it, the staff are so nice and helpful if you want tour or restaurant recommendations or whatever. There is a nice chill area with pooltable, small bar, tv and fish swimming around in the fishtank. they always play jazz. It's a pretty new place so everything is in good condition. Bathrooms big and clean and bedroom is all you need. Btw. We stayed at one of the hotels at Love lane first and it was more expensive and not nearly as good as this.

We booked in for 3 nights, but stayed 4 nights in total. The hotel is brand new and very nice. The staff is awesome and the rooms are very clean. The staff tries to help you in every possible way - even if they have to drive to a copy shop to get a copy for you.
The location is very good. You can walk within 5 minutes to the mainbus station. You can find many nice foodplaces within 2 minutes walk.
We definately reocmmend those place to stay.

We found Guest Inn Muntri by chance when we where touring the area looking for accomodation, and it turned out to be a great pick!
We stayed 10 nights in a double room with shared facilities. The rooms are very clean and stylish in a simple way (the guesthouse opened a month ago, so everything is very modern). There is AC in every room and they are good quality AC machines too, so you won't freeze to death ;-)
The shared bathroom and toilets are perfect: clean, large and with powerful showers. The common areas offer comfortable seating with a chilled out atmosphere, and wifi works fine. There is also free tea and coffee, free drinking water and free breakfast: all added up, that's a nice amount that you won't be spending every day.
There is a bar area with a pool downstairs: it's not a party place, but more of a nice hangout, which was perfect for us!
Last but certainly not least, Guest Inn Muntri boasts a super-friendly team, starting with Claire, who manages the place : she gave us plenty of tips and information on Penang and even took us out with her husband and another guest to a local night market where we were the only tourists (the food was delicious!) Everyone was very attentive to our needs throughout our stay. On our last day, we left in the evening and were encouraged to use the shower and to change in a spare room after a long afternoons walking around, which was a really nice touch.
A great, confortable, nicely decorated guesthouse with invaluable friendliness!
