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.

Family Heritage trip
Hotel is clean, room spacious. However it is noisy as room and ceiling of ground floor rooms are not sound proof. Easy check in and out, provide packing space if you are travelling by car. there is pool where the children and family can enjoy a deep in hot whether. Small pantry and fridge for you to store food during the stay. Close by hotel does have local food restaurant and convenience stores. Overall we enjoy the stay dispute the noise.

Good place for a budget hotel
Pros: Its a heritage place and they have tried to maintain to retain the old world charm. The room was small. But for a solo traveller it was enough. Their front desk staff were very helpful especially Ms.Indra. Cons: Wifi was very poor and getting disconnected very often.
