Not bad. A good place to stay with family. very strategic place near all attraction places
Everything is good about this hotel.
Meet my expectation for the price I paid.
+ Good location. Just 5 min walk to Penang road. + Friendly staff and services - Room smell and the room environment too old school. - No bidet in the toilet - Only have bread for the breakfast - Limited car park.
The reception staff is helpful and friendly...give us purposeful idea at new place
every stuff very old, very classic with rusty and stained. Everything in bathroom is "old and broken" especially the door lock. Is totally different from the picture as we viewed. Only the bed is clean but with sew blanket
We booked the family suite (4 single beds) for a very good price. We stayed for a night. The hotel was old school...it reminds you of the nostalgic moments as you walked to the rooms. The room is spacious and clean, but should at least do some painting on certain parts of the ceiling and walls. The staff were friendly. Food was a standard breakfast style. All in all, we were very satisfied with the stay.
Reservation lady was very friendly. room was super large for twin bed. I even got the room with balcony even simple breakfast was included. recommended for family that search comfortable room at reasonable price
An excellent stay for family. friendly staffs.
Clean room close the komta mall everything nice.

Good location with a spacious room
I stayed in this hotel for a night. The room is big and the floor is carpeted. I was greeted by very congenial and helpful staff. The bed was quite comfortable. The TV was quite small with a limited number of channels in English. There was a safe but there were burn marks on the carpet and it had no dryer. The free toiletries were soap and shampoo in sachets. There was no bidet and the tub was old so bathing was not even an option. The other room amenities were dated. I did not have any good view from my window. I just saw another building being constructed and workers were ready to wave when I opened my curtain. You can really tell that the hotel has gone through a lot in the past years. Breakfast served was limited to bread, jam, peanut butter, butter, coffee and sliced fruit. If you want to have eggs then it will cost you 5RM.

Convenient location in Penang
This place has seen better days but has still got a lot going for it. Large rooms with desk, sitting area, and fridge with bathroom having shower over the bath, We had a corner balcony room at the front and it had good light and cross ventilation when the balcony door was open. The best thing going for the place is the extremely friendly staff who make the place a lot brighter due to the happy,friendly greeting you get. Rooftop breakfast area with free simple breakfast including real coffee, fruit juice and cereals and toast with spreads. Good value if you are not to fussy about the surroundings. We stayed 3 weeks and enjoyed Penang for the very friendly locals and the fantastic food.

Better than expected
I have read many reviews on it which wasn't very encouraging. However I decided to try since it offers carpark. However it appears better than expected. Not as old as reviewed, perhaps some changes been done. Receptionist were OK. The morning breakfast was simple as expected. Couldn't ask for more with this budget price in squeezy Georgetown.

home feel, clean, spacious, old building hotel with friendly staff
I stayed a night in Aug, Hotel Mingood is basic but better than some new budget hotels from the point of cleanses, specious with balcony, TV, Wardrobe, fridge, safe box & good scent at lobby & room (cos one night I stayed at Tune hotel Penang, level7 room given us whole floor & room were smelly, they changed another room then it was ok). Best thing is very nice friendly staffs make simple breakfast yummy at rooftop, helpful & friendly house keeping & reception staffs, free flow of drinking water at lobby. if Hotel Mingood do renovation, room price will increase as well as it will increase it's value as excellent hotel in George Town. I recommend highly that Hotel Mingood is the best value you will get in Penang town.

Very Nice Hotel for price and location in center of George Town, Penang
WE stayed in this hotel 3 times since 2013 and everytime is good . The location is very convenient as you can walk to the market , shop and local eateries in 3 minutes , its safe and offer many bus routes near by , so you actually dont have to use taxi to go anywhere . The price is cheap compare to other hotels yet the rooms are big and the breakfast is generous . There is a roof garden to enjoy also . The staffers are very helpful and personal like home folks . THere are a few very inexpensive and good Malay and Indian , Chinese restaurants nearby plus the market is only 5 minutes away . WE love this place and we will continue to stay here in the future . The only drawback is it does not have a pool , but even so its price and offer is a rare bargain in town.
