It was a stayover business trip from Thursday to Saturday. Staff were really friendly and there was ample parking spaces. The hotel is located not too far from the street foods. Although it could have chosen better beds for sleeping.

Don’t let the pics fool you! ”
Shame on me for not reading the reviews, but like has been mentioned by others, the rooms are nothing like the pictures. Staff was ok, location in the city is great, but our room was right next to a foodcourt with nightly (off key) singers. The guesthouse put up a warning sign, but would’ve been great to know beforehand. Also, WiFi didn’t work. At all.

Bad service & poor facilities”
I was check in to this hotel, but when i enetered the room, the toilet was for me is not clean because the floor is slimey, & the aircond was broken & hot, Few times i told the staff to change my room, then they give me such a dirty room & so damn dirty, & i get pissed off then they changed me to another hotel, & not even give towel for bath, they answer me with bad answer rude staff. So for me its such a bad & worsed hotel ever in my life because i thought i was nice hotel in picture, but its so dissapointed.

Clean Hotel and Nice design. ”
I have booked room at Red Cabana once i arrived at 9pm the hotel told us the room was fully booked and we have transfer to The Sovereign Hotel,everthing was good in The Sovereign Hotel the hotel is really amazing.just a bit disappointed the staff should email or call us to inform we have to transfer to The Sovereign Hotel. So that easy for us direct to the hotel once i arrived at cabana inn the staff there no apologies at all. for some advise you can improve your service to not get scold from guest. overall the hotel is ok. we will come back and stay with you again. thank you.

Booked this hotel before the 5 star hotel the next day due to late arrival around 10pm in Penang. Try to save cost and stayed one night and my kids call the room is old creepy and aircond not working the whole night. Thankful to the staff provide a simple fan that allow us to sleep thru. Food court is located next to this Lodge and chill out bar is around the corner.

Do not stay here! The rooms in the pictures are not the same as the room you will get in any way. Instead you will get a dirty bug infested small room with mosquitoes. There is no wifi, the blinds were broken, screws sticking out of the furniture, 1 plug socket, dirty bedding and the toilet leaked into the room. I showed the receptionist the room I had booked and asked why this was completely different and she said that the photos are from when the hotel was first built (highly doubtful as its not the same hotel as in the images at all) and when I asked about why they stated there was wifi in the rooms when there isnt and never has been she simply could not give me an answer. No place can be as bad as this, do not stay here.

Great Stay, Great room, great Location”
Location, Staff, Room Size
Staff were excellent and very helpful, especially the Lady from Papau New Guinea, Mr Kamran and the young Malaysian Man. Very centrally located in Georgetown's UNESCO world heritage area, nothing is too far to get to (and that's coming from a guy who needs the assistance of a stick to walk). Plenty of street food and restaurants nearby as well as the main tourist attractions and funky street art. In Short an excellent stay. Only minor gripe is Sh*t slow Internet but this is an island wide problem, not limited to Red Inn Cabana.

Id stayed only for 1N with my husband and friend. Very convenience and strategic place. Only few room are provided with the own bathroom the rest have to shared. I booked for 2 rooms : 1 with bathroom and another 1 not. The hotel environment is clean but if you are planning to stay here. Please to be remind that you are been surrounding by bar and pub. So don expect to get a very peaceful night.

Clean rooms and nice bed, decent breakfast and old rustic charm, nice eateries around
It was a relaxing stay, room was decent for the price. Staff was very friendly and attentive. There is coffee and tea 24/7 and lots of areas to relax and lounge. The best thing we liked was for a backpackers it was very spacious, lots of showers and bathrooms which were always clean. All in all a decent stay and great value for money. Couples can get different size of rooms with a queen bed and it is very very comfortable :)

Amazing, relax and romantic stay”
The hotel is very clean and warm with comfortable floor board, nice design and very centrally located with those famous mural paintings.
Very clean and nice interior, clean and tidy bathroom although it's shared bathroom but still very clean. The air conditioner is very cold. Very nice location, very short distance to local famous heritage cafe, mural painting and Chew jetty. Had a nice sunset watching at chew jetty. But one thing worse, when there's someone pass by the room, footstep sound is quite loud. But overall it's great especially with the price.

Location
Hotel is very well located near the food&pub. Bus stop is within 10min walk. Use googlemap to plan my itinery (incl. the busstop) or ask the friendly staff for assistance and direction. There is a very noisy hawker center next door which play music until lat nite. I book a private room with attached bathroom but only realise that it doesnot come with TV afer checkin. Breakfast is simple serve from 8am-10am but you can still enjoy free coffee in the living room the whole day. The free wifi is only accessible downstairs @ the cafee. There is alot of mosquitoes in the hotel maybe becoz it was raining recently.

Located in the heart of town
Red Inn Cabana is not well known for taxi drivers, but easy to find by using google earth. The location is not far from Komta Bldg. (5 mins. walk). The hotel is renovated from an old house divided into small rooms with a/c, but w/o bathroom. The bathrooms and toilets are outside the room. The staff (Filipina and Indonesian) is lovely and helpful.
