Betel Nut Lodge - Adult Only, Penang
An outstanding choice indeed!
This hotel definitely deserves its "outstanding" guest review rating. The location is very good in the historical old George Town UNESCO area. The owner is friendly and helpful with lots of good suggestions. The rooms are small but comfortable and well appointed.... everything works and super clean! Beds are also comfortable with great quality linens. You can easily walk to anywhere in the historical district from this hotel. I recommend this hotel without reservation.

Best boutique lodge in Penng -Georgetown
Best boutique lodge ever. Owner-host is always available to assist and advise on what to see, experience and where to savour the best food - street food or restaurants. If you visit penang -Georgetown, this is the place to stsy.

Restored heritage stay
Really enjoyed our stay. We were given a welcome plate of local snacks on arrival, and the owners and staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. Our room had a ceiling fan, AC, flatscreen TV and a wet room bathroom. Great location close to shopping malls and a night market/street food vendors. It was nice to be somewhere with more local charm than a hotel chain. Be aware that as it is a restored heritage building, some noise does get through the street-facing windows when the neighbourhood wakes up.

Had a delightful stay at the Betal Nut. However, it wasn't a good as we were expecting after all the glowing reviews. The breakfast was a little small (I made the mistake on the 1st day of just ordering a single piece of toast, as I thought something else hot was coming). We had the front room, which was noisy especially during the day, although we slept fine. We also kept the shutters closed constantly due to the noise, so didn't have any natural light. Plus, it was a bit further from the main streets in the old town than we expected (we took advantage a few times of the free local loop bus, especially as it was air-conditioned, to save our feet).
