My stay at this Homstay was pleasant. It is true that I had a room with air conditioning, if I had chosen a fan, I would have died of heat because the temperature in Penang so 24 hours. The building needs improvements but to be a homestay is good and consistent with their rates. I paid MYR 45 per night...

I was browsing through TripAdvisor, looking for a place near the beach with a reasonable price, and this seems to fit the description. However, it is not exactly next to the beach, as one had to walk quite a distance through some other buildings in order to reach the beach. The advantage of this place is that it is situated...

About the room, nothing to complain about: air cond and/or fan, a big wardrobe, and a comfortable bed, in fact everything you could need. Wi-Fi working fine aswell. Just...

My husband and I planned to stay at Baan Talay for 30 days, but ended up living here for SIX MONTHS! For long-term travelers like us, this was the perfect homely, budget accommodation: two shared kitchens, garden, spacious living room and free, fast Wi-Fi (both in and out of our room). Continental breakfast w/fruit is also included, along with tea/coffee...

The staff were very accommodating and super friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious but a little humid but with the fan on and windows open it's quite comfortable. Bathroom and shower were shared and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

“Floor-rooms have thin walls which, for short-stayers, may not be an issue. But if you're staying longer than a week, try asking for higher-floor rooms (nicer, less noise, more spacious).”
