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.

Value and service & location make it my choice!
Heritage 1026 was recommended to me by a young local - he was "spot-on". A great value in a great location (quiet & comfortable with everything U need nearby and none of the tourist craziness). I will stay here again!

Good Location with the price tag.
- Located at main road (infront). - Decent Hotel. - Nice swimming pool. - Breakfast - not really impressive but it is OK with no problem with food. - Foods (eatery) - the hotel is located in between Gurney Drive & Padang Kota.
