    Good location, Helpful and friendly staff, Clean and tidy rooms and lobby

    We had a very pleasant stay at the Georgetown hotel and I will not be exaggerating if I say that our trip to Penang was even better, partly due to the great hotel. It was not only comfortable, but had a great overall ambiance. It is not for people looking for luxurious options, but nevertheless, every penny spent on this hotel was more than worth it! For a budget hotel, it really exceeded our expectations.

    Affordable and Strategic Location”

    The hotel is placed in the heart of Georgetown, so it's easy for you to reach out to some of the places to eat or visit. The room was acceptable, the only problem is the room didn't have any mirrors inside, so i had to get ready inside the toilet (i can only found the mirror inside the bathroom). eventhough the room size was quite small, but there are plenty of spaces for me to store my personal stuff without blocking my way around the room. they have their own parking spaces for the customers too, but it might be a trouble for the customers to get a parking space during peak seasons, as it is very limited. overall, i enjoyed my stay here even just for 2 days and 1 night.

    Nice stay!”

    The room is quite clean with a good bath room, and air conditioner works well. Wifi is good. I can tell hotel staff is working to keep an old building better day by day. I would like to recommend some solutions for improving the service >>You should get rid of the "hospital smell" (by using fragrant oil or spray) at the passage leading to rooms, especially on the second floor where i stayed. The smell along the passage is too strong, i felt like i am at the hospital but luckily the room does not has that smell. >> Tv should have more channels in English for foreign travelers >>Put some indoor little plant pots in the room that definitely makes an old hotel lively. I noticed that there is a lovely plant in the public toilet on the ground floor. This idea is pretty cool. Keep doing that in rooms for guests that will definitely improve our stay with your hotel. >>Lobby should have a sofa for guests to sit Cheers!

    Decent budget hotel just outside city cetre”

    New and clean hotel offering simple rooms with a sensible list of features that don't leave you feeling like you've stayed in a budget hotel. Nice bathroom/Shower that would have fitted well with a more luxury hotel.

    The Georgetown hotel is located in the business district just a few minutes walk from the New World Park shopping complex. If you want absolute city centre with everything on your doorstep, then this might not be for you. However if you want somewhere new and clean without breaking the bank, and don't mind a walk, then it could be for you. Little india is about a 20 min walk away, and as such pretty much everything else in G'town is less than 20 mins. I liked it and would stay again.

    Stayed for 3 nights and found the Georgetown to be a good clean hotel, in a pretty central location. I rode a motorbike to Penang and they offered off street parking which was a bonus. The rooms were a good size and clean and for the price I would say fantastic value. Over all I would recommend this to anyone on a budget who want a good clean room.

    1st night was having problem with internet access, but resolved it by hotel staff. Noisy during night time, we can hear next door disco music until 2am. Then followed by motorbike roaming sound. Car park spaces were limited and traffic flow was very heavy as it located right after a turning. surrounded by shops and eating stores, consider a walking distant to anywhere , but have to be careful when crossing road in Penang. Penang people never like to give way.
