Nice heritage property with character in a fantastic location. Room was basic, but cosy. Shared bathrooms unfortunately attracted mosquitos.

Muntri Street!
Didn't expect a shared bathroom, but it was a memorable experience. Comfortable rooms and lovely cultural setting. The kid at the desk was a great help. Didn't get his name, but he spends his free time studying. Very attentive. Good short walk to other areas near by. Use a GPS map and you'll be set. If you're expecting a nice room to stay in with airconditioning, this is it. The room lacks a sufficient table, however, it's cosy enough. Getting in and out at night may be a little tricky due to the door. But nothing unrealistic.

Cheap and cheerful
Overall it was a great stay here. We stayed for four nights after initially booking three, really easy to add another night and the owner let us stay in the same room which was really helpful. The room was small but clean. Shared bathrooms are fine, could do with a thorough clean but I imagine it’s hard in a place like this. Ac and a fan in the room, so good that it actually felt cold at night. Great location in terms of walking distance to places. Owner was really friendly and helpful: there was heavy rainfall and he was stood at the door making sure people were safe walking past in the floods. Also, he helped us book our boat tickets to Langkawi and got them to us saving us a trip to the ferry port. I would stay here again in Georgetown.

Good but not excellent
I stayed in a mixed room with 4 bunk beds. The room is clean and have a/c , provided with clothes hanger and a small locker. But the toilet is too far and smelly, not really that well maintained toilet. I hope they will fix this issue and make it more comfortable. Specially the bath/shower/toilet area.
