Just here for a couple of nights but this hotel has everything you need, it’s clean, modern and in the perfect location! Friendly staff and added extras like free wine & ice cream, what’s not to like! Would definitely stay here again :-)

The hotel is located in old town with a close proximity from most city attractions. The hotel staff are excellent specially the man incharged of the rooftop bar. We stayed in a superior king room which was generously big, cozy, and comfortable. The rooftop bar has an amazing view of the city and its surroundings. It is a nice place to chill after a long day of walking. Overall the hotel is really good. My only recommendation would be that they should put a little more attention to the cleaning of the rooftop hottub, its not bad but it could be improved.

Great reception team.

Perfect location.

Not glamorous.

Currently some renovations to the rooftop.

Solid breakfast.

Glass of wine each night.

You can do much worse than Chulia at this price point. I recommend it.

Source: stayed 2 nights at Southern Boutique (about 3 mins walk away) and paid the same price. New wife agreed - much better stay. Love the new wife.

My wife and I were in Penang for a few days for a "makan" (eating) trip and stayed at Chulia Mansion which is housed in a 5-storey building.

The rooms at Chulia Mansion are simply furnished but are clean and fairly well maintained. What surprised us was the free breakfast which comes with the room. There is a good spread, including an egg station. The Chef made it a point to be at the restaurant to observe and receive customer feedback on the 2 mornings when we were there. Service staff members at the hotel are polite and helpful. Response to our request regarding the safe-deposit box in our room was attended to promptly.

Wifi connection can be slow at night when everyone is online. Would be good if wifi signal strength can be improved.

The hotel is conveniently located if you wish to explore George Town. Armenian Street, which is located within the core zone of the George Town Unesco World Heritage site and many of the popular eateries and street food hawkers around Campbell Street, Kimberly Street, Carnarvon Street, Chulia Street and Penang Road are all within walking distance.

Basic room which is clean and comfy. BUT it would be nice if they can provide room slippers, laundry bag and tissue (they only have toilet rolls). Air freshener within the hotel can be quite over-powering.
