75 Travellers' Lodge
Lonely Planet review
In a great location away from the hullabaloo of Lebuh Chulia, but still in the heart of Chinatown, the 75 doesn't have much character but is an OK place to crash. Rooms are the standard backpacker box, but are among some of the few budget ones in town that have windows. Mr Low is a friendly and helpful owner and it's easy to be social over a beer or coffee on the balcony. It was spic and span when we passed but we've received the odd grumble about the cleanliness of this place.
Our independent authors have visited 75 Travellers' Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Georgetown.
