About this property


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.

Good stay
Staff were quick to respond whenever we needed help. Room was quite clean, but toilet smelled strongly of clorox. Decor of hotel could use some sprucing up, but that's just a minor issue. Overall we had a great time. Would stay again.

We have been staying in this hotel few times. This is the 3rd time we cant have good rest. Especially living downstairs with people walking upstairs sound moving around. Then next early morning again @ 6.30am? previously was the cleaner cleaning at our corridor which we are taking rest. Toilet is so small like 1st world. For a family of 3 which we paid! Credit to the receptionist & old lady who serve at the coffee hse.

heritage building, nice location near to Gurney and Georgetown city
Long corridor of heritage building, silence, and feel comfortable to stay. If you stay 1st floor, you need to walk on staircase, and the luggage trolley is to park at ground floor, then handcarry. Breakfast is so-so, and suggest to have some cakes and selection of tea/chocolate drink
