Absolute Above Satisfactory Level”

Totally no complain about our 3D2N home stay with Rangoon Residence (during Chap Goh Mei & Thaipusam 2017). The home stay is located at a very strategic point to get all types of Penang hawker food & entertainment (during cultural festive season) from the head to tail of the road just within walking distance. I have to express my gratitude to the management (Mr. Chi-Ly) about his responsibility and hospitality to make sure all his customer enjoy the travelling within Penang for either food and attraction at the right time. Car park space and hotel safety & security (even during mid night) are totally at our peace of mind during the stay. The duplex room cleanliness, room space, comfort level, and even upper & lower deck room temperature are all at the top control level. We will consider to stay back with Rangoon Residence for our next trip to Penang. Thank you.

Wonderful!”

We loved Rangoon Residence. Chiley was a great host and provided lots of great recommendations for food, activities and travel. My kids spent hours playing in the cars in the lobby. The room had two floors and a balcony, which was such a nice treat and felt very homey. Rangoon Residence was the perfect place to stay in Georgetown. We celebrated my daughter's 12th birthday it was very special.

Best stay ive stayed”

Service is just like a stay in a 5 star hotel, no other places i could get such a great service and place to stay at this very low rate. Very highly recommended to all, especially to families. Location is also very convenient, both host and staff are super helpful and friendly, who went the extra mile to help my family. A recommendation to all travellers, you do not need to spend so much investing in a high end hotel, when you can find one like Rangoon Residence with equally immaculate room and service at a low rate. Big thumbs up to Rangoon Residence!

A good base”

The Rangoon Residence was a good Base to stay in Penang. Download the Grab APP and getting around by cab was so cheap, however just 15 mins walk and you are in the main district for food and nightlife. Jenny the owner was more than helpful and had a lot of advice to us newbies in Penang. Even after our departure Jenny was helping with a few issues from the destination before.

Nice room at the central of the city”

The room we got was really nice and comfy. I really recommend anyone who are planning to visit Penang and explore the touristy sites to stay at this place. The owner also provided suggestions on where to go and eat. Although it's located in the middle of the city, the street is quiet and safe. One thing that might need improvement from the owner is the signage. We had a little bit of trouble locating the building because the signage was not very clear, the letters were faded and google maps/waze didn't bring us to the exact location. For travelers, Rangoon Residence is located on a one way street, just about 100m away from when you enter the street, and to your right. I hope this helps.

Fantastic stay, highly reccommended”

I stayed in Rangoon Residence for 1 night and I love it very much. I stayed in quadruple room with balcony - Trishaw room. The room was clean, cosy. My kids love it very much since they got to choose the bed located at the upper side of the room. The toilet, bed-sheet and towel were also clean. Simple deco at the balcony - I even had my nasi kandar for breakfast there. The mini coopers were definitely the highlight of the place. Fred, the manager was so helpful and very kind. I will definitely come back and stay at this place again.

Excellent space, with loft bed and balcony”

We stayed in a balcony room. Our teenage son slept in the upstairs double, and us downstairs, so there was lots of space. Internet was great. Balcony a real plus. Chi-lee, the manager, was extra helpful. Clean, comfy beds. AND ONLY a short work to Komptar/Georgetown central, ie China town and Little India. A Giant supermarket across the road. Great price, and clean, with kettle and fridge in each room. We needed to get Australian Passport renewed and the Consulate is 2 min walk away! Amazing!. Thanks for having us. I totally recommend, and I will be back.

The staffs are really polite, friendly and helpful. The room is very comfortable and big. ”

I booked a room with 2 king sized beds but when I arrived at the hotel, the room is not available. Agoda might made a wrong advertisement for the available room. However, the staff (lady) was really helpful until we checked out. She tried her best to provide enough facilities for us. This hotel is also very near to street food area such as padang brown. It is just 4 minutes by car and you can have all the best food in Penang. However, this hotel needs to add clearer sinage as the street is one way. So we have to drive for one more round to find the hotel if we missed it. Overall, i would love to stay here again!
