The location is perfect and the staff are really nice and helpful. We stayed as part of a group tour and Hong ping was definitely the worst hotel on our itinerary by far. The room that I was put in initially stank horribly of cigarettes. I don’t usually cause a fuss as I have worked in resorts and still work in hospitality, but I honestly couldn’t stand it. I asked if I could change rooms. The second room I was placed in was still in the same corridor but so different. No stink, a modern tv (which didn’t seem to work) and a much cleaner bathroom. If you’re not happy with your room just ask - you might be in the gross one I was put in. The wifi in our corridor didn’t work. I heard that it works in other parts of the hotel. The tiny elevator is kind of creepy and very claustrophobic. The mosque will wake you up at five am and then at six am but I actually thought it was quite beautiful and interesting. The worst part though was getting an upset stomach from the bottled water. I know it was from that because the food is been eating was of high quality. I didn’t realise the bottles weren’t sealed which is sort of my own fault. However, I wasted half a day and a bunch of medication because of it and I think that’s incredibly unfair and poor practice on the hotels behalf. Don’t let people smoke in your hotel in future and please provide proper bottled water. It would be much more moral and right to have no bottled water than this questionable stuff.

5 mins drive to Chew Jetty and Komtar. Evening food stalls downstairs. Walking distance to pubs, bicycle rental and convenient store. The location is very good and reasonable price. Strongly recommend to backpackers / budgeted trip travellers. Note: please bring your own hair dryer and water bottles. There is a water station at lobby which you can refill your water bottle. Car park provided.

Contrary to the previous review, we found our room and bathroom (No. 314) to be super clean with comfortable bed/pillow. Location is superb and the staff is helpful and friendly. There is a new city tax which made the cost of our room $23, an excellent value. Only thing missing was a fridge. Would definitely stay again. Our room had a good view, including the small mosque and we were not bothered by the calls to prayer. WiFi is a bit spotty.

Well the only good thing is the location. Its not far to walk to some really great places. The bed was uncomfortable. Pillows hard. Next to a mosque and you get woken up at 6. Bathroom was dirty and the free water in the room comes in an unsealed bottle so I didn't drink it as I had no idea if they were just filling it with tap water. Wifi is non existent.
