There are many guest houses and hotels in Chulia Street (Lebuh Chulia) area of Georgetown Penang.
Many of them are rather run down and old and targeted at the budget backpackers, clustered around the area close to Love Lane and Muntri Street.
For these budget hotels and hostels you can usually just turn up and wander round until you find a place that meets your needs and budget, but it is advisable to pre-book a day or two during high season and public holidays.
I have listed some of the best budget hotels around Chulia Street at the bottom of this page.
In the last few years a few of the old buildings along Lebuh Chulia have been fully renovated and turned into some really nice boutique style Heritage hotels.
For these hotels you really need to make a reservation in advance, because firstly, they are quite small and only offer a few rooms and secondly, if you just turn up and they do have a room available you will pay the rack rate, which is much more expensive than if you book ahead.
