About 1926 Heritage Hotel


Built in 1926, this property once served as a home to the British colonial officers and local administrators. 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.

Could improve
nice hotel itself but the rooms are realy overaged. Basic maintenance needed. Many electrical outlets had issues. Water outlets not running. Water kettle placed where is no plug ( need to put on the floor) Dusty- yes, has cleaning something to do with the choise of 3 or 4 * ? Anyway, the Lady on reception was always friendly and helpful. She did a great job to fix some issues!Best Regards to here. Breakfast- not worth the name by the way!

Toilet leaked out of floor!
Toilet was old, after flushing everything leaked out of the floor. Staff was not very friendly and helpful, after checking out they didn't even ask us if everything was fine, didn't even say goodbye. Pool is right next to a big parking lot. Beautiful... Breakfast was disappointing. The kitchen staff could not explain to me what I can find on the buffet. If you have any allergies (or prefer vegetarian food), you will have to eat plain white rice. Would have been nice if they would exchange the big pot of egg, the bis pot of butter, the dried fish, or the oily chili pot with some healthy delicious and fresh food, like fruit; oats, muesli etc. Checked out after two nights to find a better place, cannot recommend it at all.
