Cheap Chinese hotel
511 Lebuh Chulia, Georgetown T: (04) 261 0810
As far as the Chinese-style hotels in Penang go, this one is good value, clean and spacious.
We were shown a ground floor room out behind the kitchen area that was spacious with a real mattress (even if it was a bit too big for the bed frame) ceiling fan and air-con plus bathroom. For the money, this is excellent value when compared to the private room offerings at the various hostels across Georgetown. Out front is a typical Chinese restaurant that does straight up fare including Western food like pizza and pasta. If you're baulking at the price of a private hostel room, look here before you put your money down. Staff are friendly, if somewhat TV engrossed.
