We started off with 1 private room but by the end of Dec 2014, we would have 3 additional private rooms for our guests to choose from. These rooms will be listed individually from 2015 onwards. For now, please enquire for more information. Cheers.
If staying in a late Straits eclectic house in Penang is what you seek then Pedal Inn is where you want to be. As a budget inn, we're located in the heart of Georgetown City ( a Unesco World Heritage Site) easily accessible by all forms of transportation including the public bus services operated by Rapid Penang which has its city terminal at nearby Komtar, a mere 15 minutes walk away.
Converted from a pre-WW2 shophouse, we offer dormitory accommodations as well as a private room. This listing is for a private room on double occupancy. Conceptualized with the cyclist in mind, not only do we provide ample space for your bicycle should you decide to come in one but we encourage the D-I-Y spirit in our guests to perform some basic maintenance on their bicycles.
Nevertheless, we welcome just about anyone, cyclists and non cyclists alike. Make new friends here when you sit back and relax with a cappuccino in our airy guests areas, trading your travel stories with fellow room mates, be it on cycling, backpacking or bike-packing or perhaps some recent personal experience in Penang that you're dying to get it off your chest.
Our inn features an in-house cafe offering hot n cold beverages, snacks and medium light meals made from homemade ingredients should you prefer to dine in. 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 5-10 minute walk from our inn.
Back to our inn, complimentary WiFi, hot and cold showers, air conditioning in our rooms are some of our other offerings. Our rates are quite reasonable starting at only RM48 a bed/night as we don't believe in burning a big hole in your wallet just to have a great holiday in Penang.
So come pedal in to Pedal Inn. See you real soon!
We'd like to highlight that our sleeping areas are strictly a bare foot zone. We'd appreciate all our guests observing good personal hygiene for the comfort and benefit of all in house guests.
We absolutely loved our stay at Pedal Inn and Steven was a very warm and helpful host! He helped us with directions, gave us tips on what to do around Penang and made us feel so at home! :) We were vegetarians and Steven even helped us find good places to eat. I would recommend all my friends visiting Penang to stay at Pedal Inn.
The place was a 5 min walk to the heritage zone which made it really convenient to explore the neighbourhood. The room and bathroom were also really neat and clean - making our stay there really comfortable and enjoyable.
Thank you so much for having us, Steven!
This is the second time I stayed with Steven and it was so lovely to be back. The room is big with a really comfy bed and everything in the whole house is spotless. Steven is simply the best host and I would not look to stay anywhere else in Penang. Thank you Steven, see you next time.
From the moment i arrived, it felt like reconnecting with an old friend . Steven is a gracious host. In addition to a smooth checkin, i was briefed on the neighbourhood and given all the local tips. Communication was instant and crystal clear. The guesthouse is immaculately clean, brand spanking new and tasefully decorated. Aircon works super, floors are wooden and ceilings high. Best guesthouse in town - two thumbs up!
Chan was very generous in opening his home to his guests, inviting them to go eat Dim Sum with him for breakfast and sharing his knowledge of local food, culture, and attractions. The Room is clean and well lit, with air conditioning (Penang can get very humid for a Californian). The premises have water supplies as well as a kitchenette I have not seen. My only negative was that I had not expected to bring my own towel, which may have been common practice. Chan is willing to rent these out for a price at which I found it more appropriate to buy my own towel from the local department store.
Great location and excellent local knowledge. We will be back and would definitely recommend staying at the Pedal Inn!
The place is located in a very cute street close to the bus terminal. You can find good food just around the corner and the place is very clean and nicely decorated. Our room was small but also clean with AC. No wardrobe and reading light but we could borrow one from the host. Chan Hoe knows a lot about Georgetown and was always willing to share his inside knowledge with us.

We set up Pedal Inn, a cyclists' inn to welcome touring cyclists, cycling enthusiasts and not forgetting the average traveler from the world over to our beautiful island state of Penang which is a melting pot of many different cultures. We're blessed with so many interesting historical sights in the city and where food is concerned, you would be spoilt for choice. Come and discover Penang on foot, on bicycles or even hop on the public buses. Spend your holidays here as part of our local community. Many came as guests but left as friends.
