Colonial Charm on a Budget
This gorgeous building offers the opportunity to enjoy colonial period charm in one of the most budget-friendly lodgings in George Town. We loved the black and white photographs, the timber floorboards, the high ceilings and the whitewashed facade. But best of all is the glorious sun room with the waters of the strait visible through the windows. On the down side, it would take at least fifteen to twenty minutes to walk to the core of the Old Town. But there are plenty of charming buildings along the way. On the plus side, this is one of few options where you can get your own bathroom for less than RM 70.

A Quaint Hotel That Is Budget Friendly
The hotel exudes an old world charm that is truly appealing and serene. Staffs are friendly and ready to help. Room comes with simple breakfast of bread and butter (jam) with 3 in 1 coffee / tea. The restaurant adjoining the hotel serves awesome food and prices are reasonable too. One can take a stroll along the beach and you get to see different light at different times of the day. Swimming is not advisable. Room is spacious and comes with 2 double beds. Bathroom is basic : has water heater and towels provided with 2 small bars of soap. Despite the noise generated by 3 naughty kids, there were no complaints on them. Will be staying in this hotel again on my next trip to Penang.

“Budget Heritage hotel in a quiet location”
Budget hotel for Backpackers and Bachelors... The hotel is located off Gurney Drive road by the sea and can be difficult to find. Spacious room with old furniture and basic facilities which give homely feel like back in 60/70's. The building itself has its own story to tell and i love the huge living room and the old bungalow itself.

Simple and authentic hotel
The hotel is located off Gurney Drive road by the sea and can be difficult to find. Spacious room with old furniture and basic facilities which give homely feel like back in 60/70's. The building itself has its own story to tell and i love the huge living room and the old bungalow itself. However, the management should consider to change the old and worn blanket for better comfort and impression to the hotel guests. It is suitable for those who look for basic and quiet place to stay downtown. Good to stroll along the beach in the evening and see some fisherman in action and enjoy the sunset at the nearby restaurant. However, you will need car/transport to move around if you decided to stay there. Parking can be a problem in the evening while the popular seafood restaurant is open.

Heritage hotel in a quiet location
Location hard to find. We drive around this area for few times before we managed to locate it. It's a one-way street, so if miss the turning, have to make a big turn, traffic can be heavy during peak hours. Hotel is old. Lots of mosquitoes at night. Room and bathroom got ants. Bed not comfy although room size is spacious. No tv inside room and wifi signal is weak. Very old furnitures. There's a seafood restaurant in front of hotel that operates in evening until late night.
