This hotel is good: near the city, clean, pretty friendly staff, comfortable beds, newly renovated Give it a try and i think it's definitely worth the price. The nightly bazaar at Lorong Baru just a five minute walk away.

The location is in downtown very close to comtar building and time square building. No breakfast included. Single room is worth the price with aircon and share bathroom. The floor cover with carpet in old style. Free wifi in room. Free water dispenser in the kitchen. 1.5km away from lovelane (backpacker area). A very thin towel and blankets. Helpful staff...

Location is excellent, just opposite the central bus station and Komtar. Price is fantastic for the convenience. Great place for budget travellers. Walkable distance to famous eateries. Public bus from airport stops at Komtar, which makes the Trang Hotel a very convenient place to stay.

First of all, the Exterior is really cool, typically old street feel. Second, Room and toilet is clean, consider "B+" with the price. The noise bothering us, is the cleaner footsteps which back and forth which wake up each morning. Overall is a nice stay.

Good location for seeing Georgetown. Room was small, slightly grubby, had lots of ants and was only half decorated. Wouldn't have taken much to make it much nicer. Hoyle and our room faced onto road and was next to a temple, which were loud - usually I sleep through any road/general noise. Also very odd noise came from the bathroom...
