Good Hope Inn is one better priced budget hotel situated in the heart of the best town in Penang. Where you might want to ask me, Pulau Tikus near gurney Drive of course. I cannot recommend a better priced inn or hotel other than this quiet homely two storey Inn, really.
Sandwiched between two great giant hotels like Gurney and Evergreen Laurel, the Inn faces Kelawei Road that leads you to the main Pulau Tikus town and market place.
Well surprisingly, besides the working class executives, Malaysian businessman on business trips to Penang like to stay here. I heard from Sharon the Manager that cyclist too did not mind the price.
For travelers on a budget, The Inn provides deals much better then those travel inns or lodges in Chulia Street. This is far more private and secure place to stay near Gurney Drive.
Good Hope is great for customer wanting a clean place to sleep. For breakfast, the local dishes is real cheap. But my choice for eating won't be in the Inn, go and savor food in Jalan Burmah.
Practically everything you want to buy, you have it all nearby. This is a stone throw away from two beautiful Buddhist Temples. Walk to your left, Star buck is just round the corner.
And if you love walking around for food, there is an abundance here. Satisfy your gastronomical stomach with local food like Thai, Nyonya, Hawker, Street food, Malay, Mamak and Indian restaurant or hawker stalls.
Food as cheap as RM2.00 to cuisine or ala carte at an affordable price. Cut across Jones or Egdecumbe road to Jalan Burmah, this is where your fun starts. The morning market is a good find for your breakfast. In the evening, street hawker parked their carts and prepares food where you can watched them cooking away.
Especially popiah, lok lok or sup kambing is a local delight. Or the famous Gurney Hawker Centre at the end of Kelawei road is a must.
Going to famous Tanjung Bungah or Batu Ferringhi from Good Hope Inn, is just a bus ride away. From Jalan Burmah for approximately 20 minutes is all it takes to ride to the end of Teluk Bahang. You will find many attractions around Penang is within your convenience.
The bus pass through Jalan Burmah, a road running parallel to Jalan Kelawai. Refer the map below for traveling in Penang.
There are basically four types of room rates Good Hope Inn offers.
- A Standard Room with a Single bed
- A Superior Room with a Queen size Bed
- A Superior Room with Twin Bedded
- A VIP Suite with two double beds
There is another hotel called New Hope Inn which I like much better. It is located in Tanjung Bungah and very easy spotted as it is on the main road going to Batu Ferringhi.
