The 'heritage' part of the name of the hotel is a misnomer as there is nothing heritage about this hotel apart from being in the designated heritage zone...the inside of the hotel and the rooms are modern. The hotel is located centrally which is a plus. However the room that I was in had a dampness to it and you... More

We stayed in this hotel in Dec 2013, just before Christmas. I like the white and gold colour scheme in this hotel as it exudes grandeur. Though the access to the hotel is via a narrow driveway which makes this little gem less noticeable along Chulia Street, for us, this gives the hotel extra privacy and the set-back gives rise...

This hotel was the letdown of my trip around Malaysia. To their credit the staff was very friendly and was accommodating as far as what they had to work with. The first issue was looking for a plug adapter. I had a typical American style 3-prong laptop and the man at the front desk sifted through many he had behind... More

This hotel is the best choice if you wish to explore Georgetown heritage sites. Also a few walk away to the left for hawker food stalls in the evening and the famous Nasi Kandar is only a few block away. We booked one Standard Double Room for two nights. Our room has attached bathroom in it. Both of the room... More

Hotel has a nice clean look to it, at first glance looks like a more upmarket place, everything painted white etc. But it is let down by a few things that could easily be improved. We booked a double room but were given a free upgrade to a triple room, nice to have the extra space tho the additional bed... More

Due to our late check-in, we were given a smaller room rather the one we've booked online.however, after speaking to the staff, she was kind enough to inform us that our original room had been given away due to late check-in and informed us that we can get an upgrade the next day after the guests had checked out. we...

We had a 3D2N stay in this hotel and it was an unpleasant stay here. Our room number is 120 (attached bathroom) which is located at the ground floor and beside our room is a public washroom.

The lonely planet describes the rooms as clinical virginal white that lack character. I disagree. The place was fantastic, in the center but just behind the main road, so not much noise. It was safe and secure with staff present 24hrs. The rooms where very white with art to break the monotony. That is what made the room have character.... More
