“Budget hotel like luxury hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

New Hope is like a new hotel. My family recently visited Penang on a holiday and we stayed in New Hope Inn. We stayed in the VIP Suite, and we had a very pleasant stay in the hotel.

The hotel located in Penang town and Batu Feringghi. Convenient parking spaces, near the beach and staff hotels are friendly and polite.The room is comfortable and very clean. We will definitely stay in the hotel again next time when we make another trip to Penang.

I found this hotel to be nearby town and somehow on a good budget. I prefer a more home-stay place, cosy and rather not opt for the higher expensive hotel (i dun need an indoor swimming pool or free breakfast - i somehow never manage to wake up for it).

I was first greeted by the counter staff immediately (I got serve the moment I walk in), since they don't have to check-in 20-30 people which is common in larger hotels. Of course, I was a bit skeptical at first, given the low price I pay but upon entering the room I know I was right this time. I'm pleasantly surprised with the clean room, basic necessity is provided (water dispenser, hair dryer, soap + towel) and even free wi-fi !! And plus, remember to drop your documents and even your room key at the counter before you leave and the staff will take care for you. This are the small little things that I could really appreciate.

Food wise, well it's Penang. There's quite a number of stalls nearby offering chicken rice, porridge and char kuay teow. If you a morning person, there's a market within 5 mins walking. Or if you a beach person, it's just 5 mins behind the hotel too.

Overall,I pay for what's really necessary, a good place to sleep and on a tight budget. And it's a pleasant experience.

My friend and I recently visited in Penang on a holiday and we stayed in New Hope Inn for 3 nights. We stayed in the Superior Queen room, and we had a very pleasant stay in the hotel. The staffs are friendly and courteous.

For such an affordable price, New Hope Inn offers us a comfortable stay, with a queen size bed in a spacious air-conditioned room, an attached bathroom with water heating, and all the basic necessities (complementary toiletries, coffee, and daily room cleaning service) provided. The free wifi was a major plus point, allowing us to surf the web anytime from the comfort of our room.

The hotel is very conveniently located, with plenty of local penang food and convenience shops within walking distance. It is also a short bus/taxi ride to most of penang’s major attractions, such as the beach, Gurney Drive, and the night market. I would definitely recommend this place for all travelers in Penang.

I was traveling to Penang last week, found this hotel at Tanjung Bungah. It's a beautiful and yellow building with a good parking lot. I stayed and traveled in Penang at this hotel for 3 days 2 nights for a business trip.  It's a Bungalow style Budget Hotel but they provide excellent customer service. Staff are friendly and polite. Most of the basic facilities you can find from this lovely hotel and the room is comfortable with the nice branded Bed. 
The Hotel is located at a nice place, very convenient for me to work and for leisure. I can take direct bus to Batu Ferringgi Beach around 10 to 15 minutes only. Near by that is an interestingToy Museum. Going to Gurney Drive and Georgetown is so easy and not too far away too... Opposite the Hotel that is a nice seafood restaurant, and you can find the bank pand 24 hours opened Mini Mart and other many shops around.  
I will be back for next travel to Penang soon and I will recommend this budget hotel to my relative and friends. Save for more on accommodation and spend more for Penang delicious foods and entertainment. Be a smart tourist. Cheers~
