How negotiable is rent? (Penang)

Hi - we've just arrived in Penang for a Protected content stay and have started looking at apartments, primarily in Gurney and finding prices steeper than expected!. When researching online before coming was advised to negotiate hard - that one should expect to be able to get a Protected content % of the upfront asking price but I wondered if that advice is out of date, or just plain wrong?

Would help to get my expectations in line.
