---"the local Chinese say the richmen who lived on Muntri Street kept their mistresses here,hence,the name Sai Cheng Hang or Love Lane"
That's the story behind Love Lane (Lorong Cinta) where our choice of accommodation in Penang is located ---OLD PENANG GUESTHOUSE.
The place was suggested to us by Doc Gelo http://docgelo.com/ (I am really lucky to have somebody in Penang who can give reliable advice.I felt more secure and confident).The place is in the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE Core Zone so many major tourist spots are within walking distance.
The moment he handed me our room key and towels,he gave me a map of Georgetown and began telling me areas of interest.I was very delighted because it really was a big help for somebody like us who were set to stay for less than 24hours.Yes,less than 24 hours!So you can imagine how simple tips could save a lot of time.
Wifi is free although I noticed that the signal was weak.I didn't mind really coz I availed of Globe's $10 per day unli-surf roaming promo via its local partner Maxis.A little frustrating for my wife though who is a Faceookook addict coz could hardly upload her pictures or update her status.If you can some important sites to check,there are two computers at the lobby that you can use.
