We decided to give it a try due to the hotels location and booked ourselves in for 5 nights. The hallways looked unpleasantly old and was stained by mold from water leaks. The room was surprisingly new, spacious and clean. Despite the fact our room window latch was broken it was quite comfortable. There were two pillows in the bed...

Hotel Malaysia has come very far in terms of comfort and service. Their newly refurbished rooms are very nice. We stayed at room 709 and it was very comfortable. Their location is also very good and just a walking distance to most of the watering holes and famous Nasi Kandar joints. As you step out of the hotel, you may...

Well, if you're looking to drink all night long and get back to bed safely, then this is the best place to be. Just a stone's throw away from Olive Bar, Beach Bar, SS and many more cool places, you don't have to worry about drinking and driving. Nevertheless, its rooms are quite cosy.

The hotel has been recently renovated and still parts of the hotel are in renovation. The hotel has high price but I think it was not worth the stay. The hotel still keeps its ancient system intact (soap dispensers in bathroom) The hotel states it has free wifi but that is non existent. You don't get signal in your room...

For a budget hotel, Hotel Malaysia does pretty well. Located in Georgetown, it is close to the Blue Mansion and The Red Garden, a popular eatery among locals. My only disappointment however was with the breakfast, very basic and given the state of the breakfast area, it definitely needs a revamp. The chairs and tables were torn and dirty and...

Booked a deluxe family room. The room and toilet is clean with great view of the sea. Celebrated new year in the room with view of fireworks. It's 15mins walk from Armenian street and on the way, you will pass the upside down museum which is worth to visit for a 15mins of fun photo taking session. There is lots...
