Hotel description

Today, it has been refurbished into a Heritage Hotel with most of its Anglo-Malay architectural essence still intact. The 1926 Heritage Hotel occupies 24 beautifully restored link houses along Jalan Imigresen in the heart of Jalan Burma. Georgetown’s shopping centers, heritage enclave, and financial districts are nearby, and the Penang International Airport is a mere 25-minute drive. The 1926 Heritage Hotel creates an atmosphere of nostalgia – a unique blend of Malay, Indian, and English architectural influences typical of the colonial era. Here, you will enjoy spacious rooms, long corridors, balmy balconies, and an elegant swimming pool with a spacious landscape in which to escape from the bustle of the world around you. Rooms are pleasantly decorated and furnished, and suites come with private balconies. The hotel has 96 tastefully and stylishly designed, affordable suites and guestrooms with the elegance of yesteryears.

Strategically located in heart of town

Good location in the heart of town. Rooms were a bit old but comfortable enough. Checking in and out were quick enough.
The hotel was suitable for a quick family bonding trip to enjoy the famous street foods in Penang. Located near the usual eating places. The rooms were old but comfortable and large enough to easily add in an extra bed. Staff were very efficient. Checking in and out were a breeze. Worth another visit.
