For the cyclist, we have ample space for your bicycle should you decide to pedal in. We also encourage the D-I-Y spirit in our guests in performing some basic maintenance on their own bicycles.

Alternatively, hawker food is readily available as there are many hawker centers and coffee shops or locally known as "kopitiam" dotting our city roads with some offering authentic Hainan fare. A couple of these street side dining are only a mere 5-10 minutes walk away.
Our rates are quite reasonable starting off at only RM 118 a night as we don't believe in burning a big hole in your wallet just to have a great holiday in Penang. Complimentary WiFi, hot and cold showers, air conditioning and fans in our rooms are some of our other offerings.

Steve ist ein sehr netter Typ und hat uns viele Infos und Tipps gegeben, wie man sich das von einem Gastgeber wuenscht. Alles ist sehr gepflegt und sauber und nett hergerichtet. Leider gibt es kein Waschbecken bzw. Duschen im Zimmer. Wir wuerden es aber auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen!
We had an excellent four night stay at the Pedal Inn. Great location - short walk from all the main tourist areas and there is an excellent night market with food stalls at the end of the street. Super clean room, great a/c, and a perfect simple breakfast each morning. Steven was an outstanding host and had wonderful suggestions for us as well as maps. Excellent place and value - highly recommend booking here you will have a great stay.
Stephen was a wonderful host while we were in Penang. He gave us some great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. The pedal inn is a lovely spot on a quiet street within walking distance of Campbell st. Stephen is one of the most pleasant and accommodating host I have met through air bnb. Would highly recommend.
I missed out on a golden opportunity to record my appreciation on this wonderful couple and so I wouldn't want to miss out on this one. Great conversations are inevitable when the company's great. It has been a real pleasure hosting you guys so don't be a stranger now ya. God bless!
We were blown away by how nice our stay was at the Pedal Inn! Steven was very personable and helpful. He was constantly helping us go where we needed to go or give us fun tips on how to get the most out of our time in Penang. Even when I came down with a cold he went out of his way to give me lemon and Vitamin C tablets to get better. The room and house was great! VERY clean, comfortable setting. The downstairs cafe and sitting area is lovely. A heritage home turned modern, it was perfect. The location is great for local food and a short walk into the heart of Georgetown. It is also close the bus station to get anywhere in the city. In our opinion, the perfect place!
It's was a lovely time for me and my brother to stay in Pedal Inn. Steven is such a great host. For the 1st time we met, he waited 4 hours for us, because we were late. And he even tried to call our cellphone to make sure we can go there. His house is fantastic, very close to main street, and it's even more beautiful than what I've saw on the internet. Steven have so much tree pots, coffee tables and many other lovely things. Hope to see you again soon, Steven!
It's really my pleasure to have you and Nghia stay over. You have shared a lot about your beautiful country with me too and for that I'm very grateful. Maybe someday I shall be able to come visit you Ya. Meanwhile I'm so glad you had a great holiday here. Do come again Ya.....cho đến khi chúng ta gặp lại
I had a lovely stay at Pedal Inn. The room was exactly as described and the house was very atmospheric and interesting to stay in. Great location, only a short walk away from the main areas of interest in Georgetown and close to some great places to eat. Steven was a very friendly and helpful host and I would definitely recommend this place,
Our trip in Penang was very nice.
We check-in late due to plane arrival and Steven was here waiting for us.
The house is really comfortable a just renovated. It's a old typical shophouse in the Chinese tradition, with the host personal touch so really what we wanted.
Location is also very good, in Georgetown and very near to the free shuttle bus stop so no need long walk.
Host is also very friendly. If you need some advice about what to see in penang, where to go and most of all, what to eat, he is the person to ask advice.
We recommend this place and will come back during our next trip to penang
