    Property overview

    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.

    Convenient location”

    Conveniently located on the Rapid bus route to Batu Ferringhi and Weld Quay and just a 5 MYR Grab ride from the action of downtown George Town. There is a large supermarket within walking distance and a good food court close by. The hotel is old and quaint but a bit tired. The pool is nice and refreshing after a hot day

    TV local channels signal is bad & unable to watch. Wifi switch off not on the last day. Staff should switch off the wifi for guest when the guest check out. We have to call the reception to switch on again the wifi for us so that we can call a taxi. Please take note. As for breakfast is simple & nice, the menu changed everyday. Location is near to town area. This hotel is suitable to those who is driving because free car park is available. This is the 3 thumbs up for car park.

    Check in issue”

    The staff is really slow at attending customer during check in time. Rooms is not prepared on time, need to wait sometime before getting in to the room. There is no use to request for early check in if you check in on time but still need to wait for the room. No towel provided until night time with excuse that is is still at laundry. Staff call to confirm what room that we request but still ended up different room. Not sure how long the wifi and tv connection is on problem, but guessing on people review and the notice in the hotel, i think its been quite few months and they still didnt fix it at all.

    Dated charming family hotel (1926 old barracks) with a nice outdoor pool. Breakfast very limited with really terrible tea or coffee. Starbucks is about 6 blocks, by glenneagle. Hotel is right next door to food stall row and several really good restaurants on the side streets and next door. Very convenient Hotel. Free Cat 7 shuttle will get you home from george town tourist area. We usually just took a grab down to tourist area, as Burma street is one way and you have to walk a ways to get the bus going into tourist area because of the one way streets. We like this place.

    We are staying at this hotel not for the first time! The hotel is old, but the rooms are large, very conveniently located, not far from the Thai Embassy! 7 minutes by car and 20 minutes on foot! There is a nice big pool, we always take rooms with access to the pool! Normal breakfast! Nothing special, Toasts, Asian rice porridge, eggs and omelet, coffee, tea! Near there is 7-11, some good cafes with a place for food (Indian and vegetarian), a small market and food court! To the shopping center 10 minutes on foot, to the Tower Komtar 20 minutes on foot! Thank you, come back again!

    Two of the three employees were less then helpful on a number of simple questions. The WIFI was poor quality and intermittent as was the TV. They would not change towels daily so if using pool and shower your towel was always wet. Location is difficult to get to sites with public transportation so need to use Grab or walk or taxi. Staff not prepared to assist in locating local grab number.
