Muntri House
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"This old house is beautiful and recently renovated. Preserving the original structure of the old house, the decorations are simple but elegant. The location is excellent as it is just near Lebuh Chulia where you can reach all the main attractions such as Kapitan Keling Mosque, Little India, Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion easily on foot. I stayed in a single room which is located on the ground floor for three nights. No air-conditioning in the single room, the host explained it was due to some building restriction. But it was cool at night, so it was not really a problem. But if air-conditioning is a must for you, you should choose its dormitory. Not many furnitures in the room, just a bed and a small cupbroad, Would be nice if there is a chair and reading lamp. But can't ask for more as the room rate is a bargain. Besides, you can always relax in the common area. The hosts are friendly and helpful, making me feel like home. They also keep the guesthouse spotless clean. Will definitely stay there again if I visit Penang in the future. "

Carnarvon House
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"I stayed there for a night with three of my friends, and I write this with a pang of regret because Carnarvon House was so good I wish my stay was longer! The best thing abt this guesthouse is its owner Terry and his cousin, Eunice. Without them, our stay would have lacked the personal touch and that intangible extra something, the x-factor, that makes you want to come back to Penang just so you can stay with them again. I'm in the service industry too, and I sure know a thing or two abt the hallmarks of good service. The passion both Terry and Eunice have for what they do and their warm "Asian" hospitality comes across so naturally as they sit down with you to talk to you. Who needs a guide around Penang if you stay at Carnarvon House? What impressed me most was that Terry voluntarily sat down with us for a long time to share with us the sightseeing and gourmet spots in Penang in such painstaking detail. He also has done up a map of good food places complete with pictures and descriptions of the food available. Even though we only had a day in Penang, we managed to go to more than six places thanks to Terry's detailed explanation and pointers. We didn't even need to use google maps to locate these places, and the food he recommended like Penang Assam laksa, fishball noodles, char kway teow and cendol were really to-die-for! I am glad I made this choice and my friends are thankful that I chose this hotel. Thank you Terry for going out of your way to be such a fantastic host! Also, Terry shows genuine care for his guests and I feel so comfortable at Carnarvon House, as though I'm putting up at a good friend's place. My friend wanted to meet a friend at Komtas, which was 17 mins on foot according to Google Maps, but Terry overheard and offered to take us there despite his busy schedule. I'm really overwhelmed with gratitude by his generosity, patience and the lengths to which he goes to for his guests. Thank you Terry and Eunice for making our stay such a fantastic1"

"At first we think that we stay just three day at Penang. Guesthouse and old city was wonderfull so we ended up to stay there eight nights. Place have very warm and cozy atmosphere, thanks to friendly owners. Room and shared bathroom were clean. Breakfast was toast and coffee. They had delicious local jam kaya which was hand made.

Rope Walk Guest House
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"We loved staying at the rope walk guesthouse. We were lucky that we had already been in Penang a few days and were able to go and have a look before making a booking. I was initially unsure as it had no ratings or reviews on agoda but that was because the place is brand new! That's right, new beds, new bathrooms, new kitchen, new everything! The location is great, only a 5 min walk to little India, the mall/bus station, temples, mosques etc. Because it's new we were the only people there for three out of our four nights, we Initially booked 3 nights but chose to extend. The breakfast is good, bread with jam and spreads (3 toasters to use) coffee plus the staff made scrambled eggs for us and one morning brought us roti chanai. The staff were exceptional, they asked us lots of questions and gave advice, when we mentioned we hadn't found some particular street food the staff went out and brought it back for us to try and wouldn't let us pay for it! Showers are fantastic, lots of pressure and they have separate ones so no sharing with the toilet. I would definitely stay again, honestly look no further, you won't regret it. "

Marina Oriental Hotel
Butterworth,Penang - View on map
"There are many types of rooms available. However, I had accidentally chose the single bedded room that has the size of 6m sf. I was quite surprise to know that the bathroom was outside of the room, but it still not a shared one - individual room was alotted a dedicated bathroom which is locked and secured. However, the room and bathroom were clean. Friendly staff makes your stay more enjoyable. Parking spaces available but on a first come first serve basis. The only con I faced was to ensure that I am fully dressed to go to the bathroom! Hehe.. So choose the correct room option. "
