Would have been a top hotel back in the 70s. While it is a bit run down, it still offers good value for money when compared to other hotels in its price range. Top location in Penang Road. It has a fridge which is not common in this price range hotel, and a bath tub with shower. Bottom line -...

I think it was Conrad Hilton who said that the three most important things about a hotel is "location, location, location". Well, Towné House Hotel has it. Situated on Jalan Penang, it is easy to walk to all kinds of world heritage sites (well done Penang!) and get a feel of history. The street art and wrought iron sculptures, are...

So, my regular hotel (next door) was fully booked for the weekends. So I dropped by townhouse hotel and found plenty of rooms available and a price cheaper than Grand inn (next door). I decided to look at the various options and then pick me a twin bed. No doubt the place is really really old. Right from the carpets...

This place was horrible to stay in. Decor hadn't been updated for at least 25 years and our room was infested by cockroaches. Much better to go to the hotel next door for about the same price but much cleaner.

Its such a great location. Right next to Cititel hotel on main Penang Street. Hotel is big with a lift and has big rooms. With 1 night rent within the budgetary limits of 70-90 MYR for double bed, this place has so much potential to become a hit with tourists looking for budget stays. But to my amazement, it seems...

Its location is very good as it is quite near to shopping areas and for people who came to see Penang, it is very convenient as there are many tour companies around the area. There are also so many eateries around the area catering to all sorts of taste.e I would classify this as a budget hotel so travellers looking...

The location couldn't be better, in the middle of Penang center , near Cititel Hotel as reference point. We had a huge room with excellent aircondition. The hotel had better times, its a bit run down (rooms carpet, bathroom, furniture leave negative impressions), needs some service for upgrading. Cleanliness at the limit. First impression when we entered the room was...

Great budget base in Georgetown. Budget hotel so don't expect much but clean. Situated in Jelan Penang about a km from Komtar towards the sea. On bus route and within walking distance of a variety of local and Western eating places and not far from Chinatown area. RIght next to Cititel Penang hotel.

Near a catholic church. Opposite is a budget Indian food, open restaurant (open until late). about a 18 -20 minute walk from Komtar centre shops,...
