Budget accommodation near the Penang Hill Railway”
We arrived late at night from a bus that was late from KL. A friend of the owner was there and welcomed us, and came for food down at the local Chinese outdoor food area close by - very friendly people who were very happy to suggest Chinese dishes we could try! Tunas Restaurant is also close by the downstairs entry - great roti and egg plus coffee for breakfasts, and plenty of options for main meals if the Chinese food stalls are not open. The staff are very happy to help you understand what you might like to eat. All-in-all the local food options are friendly and tasty. The "attached bathroom" is only a shower. You still have to use the shared toilet - just for information for those booking. But all the facilities were very clean. The Check Inn is about 10km out of Georgetown past the Ayer Itam shopping/market area. Get the 201, 203 or 502 bus from the Georgetown Jetty bus terminus for RM2. You need exact change on the RapidPenang buses, so make sure to save your RM1 notes to use on the bus. The Penang Hill Funicular Railway is 25 minutes walk away back towards Ayer Itam - quite easily reached - as are various Buddhist temple and statue. To get to other places you really need to get the bus back in to Georgetown first, then change to a bus up to the northern beaches...
A comfortable stay with very low price”
It was very comfortable stay. The room, bathrooms and overall inn are very clean and tidy like home. Although at night get disturbed by some noisy residents chatting loudly at the hall. And also I can smell smoke from one of the shared bathroom. Not recommended for elder members as you would have to walk 3 floors of stairs to reach the inn.
worth it and more than that”
good stay, and a lot of great food just near "check inn"
Feel like home”
It's a very comfortable,cosy & clean Inn.they provide lots of facilities to the guest-water heater,hair dryer, water boiler, washing machine (RM8/wash with detergent) & etc.i stayed in double deluxe room & we asked for extra bed(RM10 /night only)including blanket & pillow.4 persons in one room definitely a good choice if u looking for budge hotel.the uncle is friendly too!!
Clean Comfort Convenience ”
Private bathroom but no toilet bowl. Have to go out from the room n shared with others. Value for money.
Hybrid between dorm & hotel”
Very clean good location friendly staff”
We had spent time in butafringi and George Town. We stayed here for a change, it was easy to get to on the 402 bus from George Town. The staff are so so friendly, they gave us maps and chatted to us. They even gave us tea. The whole place is so so clean, don't worry about a shared bathroom because it is very clean. Hot water in the showers. The aircon worked great and the bed was clean and comfy, it's very simple but that's all we needed. It is in a perfect location to see the temple on the hill and penang hill, just 25 minute walk. Local food stalls right outside the hotel or McDonald's 25 minute walk. There is a gym above that you can go to for 5 ringgit. We would definitely recommend this place as it is possiably the cleanest place we have stayed in our three months traveling in Asia.
Overall ok.Got 1 staff there a bit arrogant. ”
Very clean, quiet, far from old town Penang ”
The hotel is very clean, quiet and near food stalls that offer food at night. It's not near central Penang though and requires a 40 minute bus ride into the city. The showers and bathrooms are spotless BUT the manager was not honest with us about money. He told us to leave the next day's money in a box in the front office. The next day he claims we didn't put the full amount of money in there. We were 100% sure we did though. The day before he was also not pleased with how cheap of a rate we were getting with Agoda. I would think twice about staying here if this same man is working. Your money/belongings are not safe here.
Staff is kind and willing to share informations and advices. The room is quite spacious and clean. Private bathroom is only for bathing purpose, still need to use the shared toilet outside. It's worth the money anyway.
Very Cheap price with nice room(i will come back)”
Very satisfy with this cheap price Rm 37 , but one things if we check in after 6 pm we need to call the hotel owner to give passcode for us to go in and take to room key from the locker , room 1 and 2 near to window is very noisy at night because down there are kedai mamak usually they play loud music until 4am and many ppl down there .
Overall - OK”
*Hotel yang murah *Kebersihan penginapan pada tahap yang tinggi *Walaupun tempah bilik yang mempunyai bilik mandi tapi tandas tetap di luar bilik. *Terdapat Kedai makanan 24 jam, kedai serbaneka, famasi dan gym berdekatan *Terletak di tingkat 2, letih nak turun naik. *Parking pada waktu malam agak sukar, kerana ramai orang lepak dikedai makan waktu malam *Tiada tunjuk arah kiblat *Staff bagi alasan utk tidak housekeeping selepas hari pertama dengan alasan risau barang customer hilang. * untuk kategori hotel 1 bintang, keseluruhan memang puashati.
hotel bajet yang berbaloi”
lokasi mudah dicari..tetapi urusan check in sangat teruk kerana kakitangan hotel tidak cekap..bilik biasa-biasa sahaja..tidak ada apa yang menarik..sesuai untuk pengunjung yang hanya ingin bermalam dan tidak ada anak kecil..ada restoran muslim di bahagian bawah kalau anda malas keluar jauh mencari makan..secara keseluruhan hotel ini berbaloi untuk wang anda..
