“Small but very clean and friendly owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2011

Stayed here for one night upon our arrival from Kuala Lumpur. We didn't arrive until 11:30pm as our train from KL was 3 hours delayed. Upon arrival the owner greeted us. He was very friendly. Showed us to our room which was up a couple of flights of stairs. The room was very clean and tidy. We had a family room which consisted of a queen bed and two singles. The room was small however was perfect for $25AUD, there was a tv and a small bathroom which was neat. Would stay here again if we were on a low budget as the room was lovely. I've stayed in worse for a higher price. The owner was great. Hotel is down a little back street with a couple of pubs and a 24 hour food place just up the road.

Clean but not really spacious room with good A/C. Excellent wifi coverage.

Staff was helpful and kind to us from beginning to end, making our stay here a pleasant experience.

For Penang this place seemed to be good value. The location is not perfect as there is a bit of walking distance to everything.

Tiny room, only a bed in there. No wardrobes, drawers etc. Sink is within the main bedroom area with toilet/shower in the corner of the room. We stayed there 4 nights and our towels, sheets etc were no changed at all during our stay, nor was the room cleaned. This hotel is a good price, however we stayed in the AB Motel in Langkawi for the same price and it was in a different league. Location was good and central. There is a karaoke bar below however this did not really disturb us particularly.

We spent only RM160 for 2rooms and 1night here, worth and valued! The staff had a good arrangement for us though she couldn't provide the rooms that as we had booked online. There is a restaurant beside the inn but unfortunately it was closed on the day we arrived. However, there are some stalls around there. We could easily find a place to have our breakfast. The rooms are small but that is not a problem to us as we just want a place to rest and sleep. Plain water refill is provided. Parking area is ok, you can park your car beside the road.

I wanted budget in Georgetown which was busy this weekend being a public holiday, I found Cozy on Trip Advisor iPad app. the taxi took a while to find the hotel and my booking couldn't be found, the attitude to my lost booking was indifferent at best.
In time the booking was sorted and I was shown a room at the rear of the 1st floor. As I had only paid about $24 I didn't expect much but the room was all of the 3C's, Cool, Comfortable and Clean. the location isn't great and is hard to walk to from town but still handy if you can find a taxi to locate it, in 3days 3 taxis couldn't find it!
Overall it was value for money, so won't complain.

Room Tip: take a marked map with you to show the taxi driver

We stayed for three nights in a double room and found it to be good value. The room was small and somewhat bare, but it had everything we needed. It was clean, and the bathroom worked well. The location was a bit out of the centre, but this did not detract. This actually meant that it was fairly quiet. The hotel did have hourly rates, but we did not see or hear anything untoward. Overall, a good choice for the city.

Was looking at the budget end of the scale for two nights in Penang...found this hotel by accident while looking for other accimodation from "TRIPADVISOR"...
80RM per night....rooms were small but clean, air-con and hot water.
Staff were polite. Walking distance to all food and to busses at Komtar....

I'm an Australian living in Thailand, for Asia it's not at the low budget end, but for westerners, I've stayed in hostels in Australia that cost more than this and had to share with 6 people....
Would recommend this place and will stay again.
