“Excellent stay at 1926 Heritage Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

I stayed in 1926 Heritage Hotel from the 9th of July - 12th of July along with a party of 5.

The rooms were excellent - clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable, making for very good sleep in between our pig-outs in Penang.

The hotel breakfast was simple but very delicious. I would suggest that you wake up at 7 and head to the cafe for breakfast, which is when the food is still piping hot and extremely fresh. If hotel breakfasts are not your thing, the hotel is incredibly conveniently located to the best food stalls in Penang. Literally flanked by famous eateries, there is no need to travel far for good food. We spent most of the 4 days we were there just attempting to try all the food that was within the vicinity.

The hotel is also conveniently located a stone's throw away from the heritage part of Penang, which saved us a great deal on transport costs, given that we walked most of our trip. Transport was also not an issue, when needed. The hotel has a transport booth, where there are service agents who can get you cheap transport in minutes.

My overall experience at the hotel was an excellent one and I would recommend anyone going to Penang to stay at the hotel. 3 thumbs up!

This is a great place to stay in Penang. The staff are friendly and the location is perfect if you have a scooter. The security guards will make sure the scooter is safe during the night, 24 hour security guard. Close to a lot of great places to eat. About a 10 mn walk to Ocean. 7-11 close by too. Rooms are nice and comfortable, and AC keeps you cool. It is a bit far to walk to the UNESCO area but you can walk there in about 15 minutes. I will stay here again when I come to Penang.

Room Tip: All rooms are OK.

I was expecting more from this hotel because it was recommended by a friend and their website looked promising but unfortunately it was rather average. I didn't like the fact that the rooms weren't locked when we checked-in and that there isn't enough lighting in the room and hallways. The room is very basic and unfortunately for me, I didn't manage to sleep well for the two nights I was there. Its location, however, is good as it is near to eateries and you can get to Penang's attractions easily.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 4 nights for a visa trip. The first person we met was one of the owners, Daniel, who very kindly offered us complimentary breakfast. Check in was smooth and we were shown to our room, a quad on the upper floor on the opposing side to the pool. The room was clean, the beds very comfortable and the bathroom functional. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We only tried the breakfast once - was ok but we are not really buffet fans. If you turn right out of the hotel and walk down to the pedestrian crossing there is a nasi kandar restaurant - roti chanai and teh tarik - yum. There is also a 7/11 there. All in all a great time was had by all - the pool is a lifesaver. My only gripe is not enough hanging space, 4 people with a bath towel and a pool towel each and nowhere to hang them to dry. A towel rack would have been good.
