This is a good budget hotel. It has everything a budget traveler could need (clean rooms, internet/wifi, a good location, helpful staff, etc). However, this is not a luxury hotel. For people that are looking for something luxurious in Penang, this is not it. Given its location (a 5 minute walk from the heart of the city) and that Georgetown,...

We booked this a few hours before we arrived via Agoda and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself reminds me of the film The Shining, old building, high ceilings and a radio button next to the bed but it also comes with a bath (which was clean) and free wifi in your room and breakfast. We stayed in a twin...

Really good value! We stayed 2 nights and were impressed with the spacious and clean rooms with ensuite bathrooms. The breakfasts were included each morning. Aircon worked well. The staff were helpful and gave us directions to places such as Penang Hill and the Butterfly farm. Drinking water was available in the lobby and we were able to put our...

While the furnishings are old the rooms are large and clean. I was happy to have this room in this location for the price. The staff were really responsive when my aircon didn't work and immediately found me another room. They had a great helpful attitude. The hotel 1.5 blocks from Jalan Penang so all the buzz of that street...

This hotel is cheap, but it shows. The rooms look like they're from the 1960's Soviet Union and the cleanliness isn't the best. The toilet in our room didn't flush. For this there was a bucket in the bathroom from which you could pour water in the toilet sink for it to flush a little better. The breakfast wasn't much...

Would only go back to Penang for the staff efficiency & guidance for our budget holiday stay, made our stay memorable, made us feel welcome with the small budget spent. Will return just for the experience of staff friendliness...

I found Mingood hotel very conveniently located and gave me value for money. I stayed in the family room which was pretty spacious. The breakfast was basic but sufficient for us. We found the hotel staff to be very pleasant and helpful. There are plenty of shopping areas and food joints near to the hotel. I would suggest this hotel...

With the low price and the not always positive reviews in mind, we got to this hotel with low expectations : probably not too good. The opposite was true. Granted, the facilities are basic, but functioning and sufficient. The location is not right in the middle of the UNESCO Heritage site, but not too far away. Staff was mostly truly...

Spent 5 nights at Mingood last week. I just cant believe the previous 2 reviews being so negative. Our room was clean, spacious, no bed bugs and had a little balcony with a nice view over the old town and the hills. Ok, its nothing fancy, but it costs 80RM per night!!!! Really what more can you expect for this...

Choosing this hotel has got to be the biggest mistake in my life......nothing more than a cheap motel! I can get better hotels along Chulia Street. Service was horrible, room was filthy and rundown. Location was not impressive..........Never again I will step into this place. Give it a miss if you are happen to be in Penang.!
