Hotel rooms were not spacious enough for a family room, toilet was not proper no air freshner, had some supernatural feel during the night, no chillers n refreshments for the price to pay. Room rate was towards the expensive site for a weekday. Swimming pool closes at 7pm which is very tight to spend time there. Room lights can add...

Superb location if you're looking convenience. I find the hotel pretty old. The window panels in the room seem like its gonna rip off. despite that, it does the job in creating the heritage experienced. Love the facade of this building. Nice illustration on the wall. Great building structure.

For the price the place is not too bad. It has a pool that looks fine, although I didn't go in. I can't decide if I loved the location or hated it! On the one hand it is just a little bit too far out of the centre of Geaorge Town but on the other hand it is about halfway...

1926 Hotel located 2KM apart from the heart of Georgetown Penang. The famous eatery stall was about walking distance (Penang Hokkien/prawn Noodle & Bak Kut Tea). About 4KM from the Gurney drive. A great vantage feeling hotel you can enjoy here.
