Red Inn Heritage
Ranked #85 of 172 George Town B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 April 2016

after 3 times in Penang\Georgetown, I still can't figure out how people like this city. Apart from this, I had a 2 nights stay at Red Inn heritage, the first night in a double bedroom with private toilet. the hotel is ok, nothing more. The room is average, not very clean and old, but towels are clean and the aircon runs fine. The second day I booked a single room and I asked if it was ok to stay in that one, I understand the price was higher, but I asked to have the same room without sheets and towels change, since there was no check in. Nevermind, I had a no as answer. I had given a single bed room with a huge window on the corridor, lights and noise all night and Toilet shared. For the price I paid I cannot complaint, but I honestly believe there's better hotels at the same price.

This such good value that you just can't be too fussy. You have to find it as it is and not complain about this and that, the family do their very best to keep it clean and running well. The WiFi is good everywhere and you can take your time over breakfast, three types of fruit on offer! Love Lane is a great location, especially for Little India and you're missing great Indian vegetarian food like me.

Room Tip: The downstairs rooms have windows and are more airy. I'm not a lover of A/C, give me a fan and a...

This guesthouse is really well located on Love Lane close to everything. The staff is really nice and helpful. I was in a 3 bed dorm and the beds are really confortable with enough space for privacy and they each have their private light and power socket. The only downside is that it can be noisy if you have a room at the front since there's a bar next door. Other than that, really nice place to stay at. I love Georgetown and went back a second time and stayed at this hotel again. The wifi doesn't work super well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the front

We stayed for 3 nights in the central hostel. In staying in a hostel instead of a hotel we were expecting a bit more atmosphere in the common area but there was absolutely nothing going on here social wise so if you are a solo traveller hoping to meet people go elsewhere. Saying that even though there was nothing going on the place was always very noisy while we were trying to sleep with people stomping on the roof above or walking up and down the hallway at night.
On our first night there was a fuse blown at 1am and all the aircon went out but thankfully they were able to get someone to come fix it by 2am...
Rooms were pretty clean and beds comfortable. We stayed in the private double with an attached shower but shared toilet. There was also no external window in our room but light from an internal window into courtyard/walkway.
