Room quite big and comfortable. Towel, shampoo, and soap provided. would stay there again for travel. But need a lil bit improvement. Mirror only available in the bathroom. Would be nice if there is a big mirror on the bedroom.
Hi Eliza Thank you for your staying in Burmahtel. We are so sorry to hear that the room you was staying wasnt have a mirror. Suppose each room must have one mirror inside the toilet and one other mirror outsie the bedroom,. Because with the big mirror, lady can make themself looked more beautiful and attractive. Thanks for informing us. We will settle this mirror problem soonest possible. Hope to see you again and make sure you will have a BIG BIG mirror inside the room for your next staying. Regards GRACE
Affordable hotel at the Island”
Last minute booking. We managed to get this hotel at a very reasonable rate. 2 large beds which can accommodate 4 adults and 1 kid. We read through the previous review, some said its creepy, some said its haunted etc. After experiencing it ourself, theres no ghosts, no horrifying scenes, nothing. Only that.. the building is old. Its where an old building mall been transform into a hotel. Facilities wise is ok and ok, not much to expect, but overall its comfortable where i can say. Remember.. no ghosts.. no creepy things at all..
Hi Norhafizah Appreciate for your kindness to help us to clear all the negative doubt. Remember no ghosts. no creepy things at all. The world becomes wonderful because having nice people like you. Thanks again !! GRACE
Very nice hostel”
I like this hostel a lot, for the discount price they're offering through agoda that means a lot, this hostel is in the city, so very easy for you to find food, close to mall and glenagles hospital, room is clean, bathroom is quite small but ok, ac is ok, it is build from old house, so you will feel the uniqueness of it, i might stay again if i have to go to hospital again
Room spacious. Very near to everywhere in Penang old town. Got parking for family car, good condition in room like shower room, good water heater with great water pressure, big bed, spacious enough. Can walk 8 mins to a morning typical food restaurant with various kind of food stall to choose.
Pleasant Stay at Burmahtel”
I stay 2 nights at Burmahtel Hotel, and it was pleasant stay. The room is clean and comfortable. It's easy to find good food and store around the hotel. Easy trasport with Rapid Penang to Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi. Although the entrance of this hotel is quite confusing, we get used to it fast. It's really a great value for money
Clean and Value for money hotel”
Everything was perfect and ok except the bathroom. The bathroom was clean but not dry when we checked-in at around 3.00pm. When we request the housekeeper to dry the bathroom, we were told to dry it ourselves. We were told that it is the hotel policy that the bathroom is only wash clean but not dry clean by the housekeeper.
Central located, value for money”
We are last minute booking customer, the price of the hotel offer in agoda really cheap for us as we have 4 family members to stay in. The room of the hotel is really clean and news, two air conditional was at our room, equip with the refrigerator. We will highly recommend for those budget backpacker to stay this hotel as you can get a cheap price with a quality sleep. Besides, staff also ok.
The staff was a bit harsh and not friendly”
The staff is not friendly and a bit harsh when we checked in the hotel. The hotel lift is smelly and old. It says that it can carry 11 persons with almost 1100kg but it wasn't. We have to take different lift although there was 5 of us. Aircond is not well functioning
Hi Fathin We are sorry for your bad experience. We will look into the problem and to improve it. Thanks GRACE

Nice and Tidy Place”
Burmahtel is a nice and tidy hotel to stay. The price is right, strategic location for culinary and near traditional market. If you have appointment to hospital, it's near to Adventist Hospital and Gleneagles Medical Center.
Clean and Comfort”
Pros: Very Clean Room, Very comfortable! Staff are very friendly. Cons: The door room can be improve, anyway, i understand the hotel is currently undergoin renovation I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Clean room and also this hotel is near to the places of attraction.
Close to transportation ”
I just need to take a few walk to opposite road to have a bus to bring me travel all georgetown and also another district..culinery is about 500 metres and also the morning market is about 5 -7 minutes walk from the left of burmatel's front door..
Value for Money”
The hotel is in a very good location as it is right in town. Although it is quite an old hotel, the rooms were clean and comfortable. However, during the night, we were a little unnerved over the condition of the hotel as we had to go through very eerily quiet hallways to get to our room. Would not recommend staying here alone though. Overall it was a good stay.
Big room, wierd setup, wierd 5 person room”
Stayed two nights, first night was in a family room for 5 pax, there is a pillar in the middle of the room, feng shui very bad u know what i mean. So next day we change to a six pax room adding rm 20 for it. Then is better. Lift was old, u have to pass tru a restaurant kitchen to reach the lift, smell funny. Entrance of the hotel is wierd. Local staff was friendly, the foreign labor staff not so. Overall room was clean , water pressure strong, internet sucks. Basement parking very dark, dare not park there.
Very Rundown Accommodation and unfriendly staff”
This is definitely not a hotel for sure! We went in a group of 6 of girls, once we have reached we were greet by friendly staff (morning shift). We were happy, after drop our luggage we went out for tour without checking out the room condition. The nightmare starts as soon as we return to the "hotel" at night (~10pm). There were few gangs of foreign workers and they keep on teasing us and staring at us in front of the "hotel", one Burmahtel staff saw it, but he pretended he didn't which I felt deeply insecure and dangerous if you are travelling without guy. After rushing in to "hotel" with top of speed, we complained to one of the staff, but his reply "is okay one" to end the conversation. Once step in to the lift, the lift was so rundown with some rotten smell. This added our regret to choose this "hotel". If you want to know the room condition, it is very spacious to be fair but it was full of dust and the room seems never been housekept for months. The pillow was grey in color (literally) covered by dust and we straight away ask for replacement for a clean pillow. the same uncle replied, no house keeping staff at this hour, so you have to wait until tomorrow. All of us felt so meh and speechless. He also mentioned no room changed. With the tiring body, we really couldn't look for another room at other hotel. So we slept in this grey pillowed room with regret hearts. No more second time, a lesson learnt! If Agoda has cleanliness with negative number, we will definitely choose it. This is the worst ever "hotel" we have experienced. :-(
Nice location n plenty of parking ”
The room is nice enough, 2aircon,fan and heater that work just good. The best part is the place is near to the local market that you can find local food and stuf in the morning in just a stone throw distance. I would come back for another stay.
far from city centre near to pulau tikus”
I booked a room for 5 people. Got a room with 2 beds. The room provided with 2 AC and a bathroom. The bathroom got no lock. The hotel rooms was quite like a dorm or maybe a hospital. The elevator is poor, looks old and dirty. Saw some old patients with masker going around the alley of the room, maybe for the location near hospital. For the food it is near pulau tikus, good for morning activities like looking for food or market. But at night it is quite quiet.
Value for money”
The room is clean although the walkway from hotel entrance to the rooms is less satisfactory. The hotel is located at shop lots, there are few parking space available in from of the shop lots. Basically, it's just a room for you to sleep. There is a flat screen TV in the room with astro channels. It's a good choice if you are looking for a cheap and clean room.
