Very nice and near to town center.
The hotel is clean and cheap.
Clean and comfy. Parking place is limited.
Hotel is nice, the staff are friendly. Just that the hotel is located on a street with busy traffic. Also we are given a room which have a door connecting to the other room. We are shocked when the people from the other room tried to open the door at the middle of the night and when they accidentally hit the door. The soundproof of the room is not good where we can hear the sound of people of the next door folding plastic bag clearly as if they are doing this at our room. This is due to the connecting door I guess. Lastly, the shower is broken. Water run all way round until the electric heater become wet and this may be dangerous to user. Overall the room is clean, the facilities are satisfying. There is a water dispenser at the corridor and the hotel is providing hair dryer, kettle and etc which are quite convenient.
Okay. first thought like it was a good budget hotel.
Receptionist is really good and friendly.
It is great, cheaper and comfortable,
the room is nice, the price is reasonable.
Parking is limited. Near Penang Times Square. All is in walking distance. I just walk and take a grab car to Penang Hill. The bed sheet got yellow dots. All is okay for the price.
Girl receptionist not friendly. But for guy receptionist at night so friendly. Room not like expectation.

Could be better
As far as hotels go Ink hotel was perfectly adequate. The rooms and bathroom were clean. The shower in our bathroom was broken and didn't stay on the wall when in use. It was also a bit of a battle to get hot water. But what let this hotel down was the front of house staff. The day time lady was very pleasant and helpful but the night time receptionist was so unhelpful and was rarely found at the front desk, she was usually outside on her phone. It took me 10 minutes to get her attention as I saw my laundry left on the side of reception and I wanted to take it. She finally came in, but continued her telephone conversation and didn't acknowledge me except to point to the bill attached to the laundry bag. I found this very unprofessional. The wifi also didn't work very well, when we asked the same night time receptionist if there was an issue she replied it's working. We told her it wasn't and she said she would check and come to our room to confirm. She never came and he internet never resumed working. Like I say his hotel was perfectly adequate for the price, but if the staff we're a little friendly it would go from adequate to a lovely little place. Staff need more customer service training

There are definitely better options
Not located near the historic centre and nothing very much around, poor wifi, quite run down (shower bracket hanging off wall), weirdly no dressing table mirror or phone in room and absolutely appalling staff. The lady working the late shift on reception should frankly not be working in a service industry because she really could not give a f....

A Nice Stay for Our Post Raya Trip
We booked a deluxe double room for two nights in this hotel and the next two nights in a more expensive hotel for our Post Raya trip in Penang. However, I think my stay in this simple hotel is better than the more expensive hotel that we booked. The room is spacious although the bathroom itself is not very big. I like the comfortable pillow. I even checked the brand so I can buy the same pillow but I can not see any brand tag attached to it 😊. The room is clean and airy as it has a big window for the exchange of fresh air. The bed is comfortable. The towels they gave us are clean but not very soft due to the overused. There is not rack to put our toiletries in the bathroom. We can not hang our shower head as the hanger is almost broken , so we just put it on the sink. The room will be better if they provide a small refrigerator. The parking place is limited but we always have a place to park although we go in and out the premise very often. Sometimes the staff guides us to park in the neighbouring place and to my surprise, their neighbour is kind and let us park in his place. The location is quite strategic. We can easily call a Uber when we want to find food and it will come to the hotel in a few minutes. The staffs in this hotel are friendly and helpful. If I have a chance to visit Penang again, I will book this hotel again.

Bad sound insulation!
Stayed there for two nights. Overall was fine. I think they didn't change their bedsheets as I can still see some smudges on it. Limited parking space. The sound insulation was extremely bad. As I stayed at Level 1, I can heard vehicles passed by especially motorcycles. In the room, I can clearly heard what people talking next door and when people walking on the corridors. It was quite a bad experienced as I can't stand with the noise. If you can't sleep with noise, it is better to have another choices.

Decent budget rooms
The room served our basic needs, clean toilet and bed. Upon arrival, our soap dispenser was out of shower foam. The tea/coffee machine in my room was strange and complicated, a regular electric kettle would suffice really. At least, we could walk out to a water dispenser for hot/cold water. Would have appreciated a bath mat just outside the toilet.
