Good stay at YMCA Penang

clean room, low price, close to Thai consulate
I stayed at the YMCA to be within walking distance from the Thai consulate. There is no 7/11 or market nearby, and the front desk staff have pretty much no clue. There is Island Hospital just across the street. They have a food court with bakery, and a separate cafe. If you need to get a cheap meal, sandwiches, bottled water, etc., go get it there. I'm fine with the YMCA. The price is really low, so what they offer for it is fine. (Except for the front desk staff, who could cheer up a bit.)

Great value for money

1)Good food 2)Quiet surroundings 3)Nice room
I had a pleasant one night stay. It was great value for money- for a mere RM90 you get an air-con room with 2 beds, complimentary coffee, TV with satellite channel(Fox movies), your own private bathroom plus breakfast for 2. And you don't need to go out for your meals as they have a restaurant on the ground floor which serves good food (for lunch, tea, dinner) at very reasonable prices. I will definitely return for my next trip to Penang as this place is a gem.

Hotels near Island Hospital

Close to the hospital, Reasonably priced, Breakfast was delicious
I spent several nights at this hotel, I choose because it is closer to the hospital I wanted to visit. In the hotel room I was staying, have air conditioning that when you turn on will blow dust, dirty. You should not sleep under the air conditioner.
