1926 Heritage Hotel, Penang, Malaysia
1926 - Old heritage style hotel, worth a stay
The hotel is a little run down and I was in a room which hasn't been renovated. It had a terrible musty smell which did diminish over my one week stay. Bathroom very old and I have nothing good to say about the bathroom except that the water was hot. A/C was broken and fixed within an hour. I had a room with a small terrace which was nice The pool is lovely and I used it each day. The hotel's in a great area, easy to get a bus to Gurney Drive, shopping and the beaches; almost next door to fabulous hawker area and many good restaurants. Its a fair walk into town but it can be done - and you can get a bus back easily (101). I didn't eat at the restaurant or cafe. Staff I met were pleasant and helpful. Would I stay again? Yes, if the price is right and I needed a pool!.

Very Good8.0
Comfortable older style hotel
Comfortable hotel with a great pool. Very popular with families & groups, so if you want quiet, this is not for you as children & families use the corridors to run & shout at all times of the night & day & the area around the pool can be noisy with groups using it as a meeting place to chat (including very late at night).The rooms are not soundproof. One night there was someone very heavy footed in the room upstairs & their movements across the floor were audible. Close to good hawker food markets & a 15 min walk from Pulau Tikus for excellent food stalls. A regular bus service 101 to the city stops nearby.

Kinda disappointed
we stay for 1 night, since our flight was early in the morning, we arrived at the hotel around 11am. kept the baggage, then out for lunch. back again at 2pm (as their check in is 2pm), still have to wait until 3pm because they're still cleaning the room. Thanks to Mr. Harul who made us possible to enter our room more quicker than the receptionist crew who just make one call to check the room and then did nothing else. there were no towels in our room, we asked for it, they said they're running out of towel due to laundry problem and gave us swimming towel after our second call. the wifi is bad in our room, you need to go to the lobby is you want good wifi connection.

Old hotel with character, but needs improvement
Old hotel with much needed refurbishment. Poor Wifi I couldn't get service in my room and I often could only get service in the breakfast. Breakfast can be improved: more choice or at least fresh fruit. The room was adequate, but comfortable. The best feature was the pool especially after a long hot day. The area is quite far from the main sights, but it's within walking range (20-25 mins). You get what you paid for and I was happy with the pool as I could have paid less for a better room, but there would have been no pool.
