Red Inn Court
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"Location, price and charm make this place highly recommendable in our opinion. we'd stay there again no worries. We stayed at red court inn several times and stayed in dorms, twin room and king room. All of the rooms were well presented in charming old penang style. the bunk rooms are solid and very comfortable. actually all the beds were lovely. all rooms have aircon too - very important! the bathrooms are all shared but it feels fine - they are clean and the showers are good. The wifi is reasonable and there is a comfortable common area on the ground floor to lounge in and watch a movie or have a can of expensive beer (beer in malyasia=very expensive). there is also a computer there for guests to use. the free breakfast is very basic just a few bananas a bit of watermelon and white bread to toast and eat with jam. But don't let it worry you - go across the road to the vegetarian place and get an excellent cheap breakfast there. Red cout inn does have some pretty steep stairs though so if you have knee problems or any other reason to avoid stairs then please be warned!"

Sim Citystay
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"This is the same review i gave to trip advisor, they deserve amazing review because this hotel and the staffs are just amazingly wonderful. I'm a 21 year old girl came here with my boyfriend and 3 other friends. Went here with 4 of my friends. The cheap price come with nice bedroom. Suitable for those who dont have to transport but want to travel far around penang. Walking distance to the jetty terminal, you don't need any transport once near to the jetty. The jetty is the main bus terminal to go everywhere in Penang friendliest staffs ever. The genuine smile and everything, and very helpful. They even provide a room to keep your bag after your checkout time. As the hotel is only 5 minutes walking distance to jetty, we went everywhere starting from taking the bus from jetty. Penang public transport is reliable. And if you want to go back to the hotel, any bus can do because every bus seems to stop at the jetty as the final. The view is to die for. I will definitely come here again. "

The Frame Guesthouse

"It was out first time in Penang, Malaysia and we saw a lot of people recommending this place and so we booked our stay. The location was just perfect, it’s near most of the restaurants and food options. The staff were very nice to us especially in helping us navigating Georgetown. It’s also near the party place so we really had fun!"

Cocoa Mews Cafe & Home
Georgetown,Penang - View on map
"We booked 5 nights at Cocoa Mews and it is totally worth our time there. Howie - the guesthouse owner and Azhar - the receptionist are super friendly and helpful. They can show you everything not just in George Town but the whole Penang island. They also want to feed their guests with many kinds of local snacks and they have a list with full of top delicious and cheap food here. The guesthouse is quite old because it is hard to do any renovation in the heritage street but it still good with cool ACs. The shared bathrooms are very clean with hot water. You don't need to have any idea of which places should you go, just ask the receptionists and they will give you the best schedule for your trip/food trip. Surely will stay if I will be in Penang again."
