          No frills, yet spacious and comfortable boutique hotel”

          This is one of the few old mansions converted to boutique hotel along the Chulia/Muntri/Love Lane area. Unlike others who offer very few rooms, this hotel boast of 44 rooms which allow it to lower the price per room. As it is set inside the main street, it is quiet and yet very accessible. I opted for the one with attached bathroom and it is spacious.

          Reasonable price and pleasant stay”

          Worth the price as I got a very good deal via Agoda.com I only paid RM220 for Two night deluxe room. Location is good as it’s situated at Chulia Street. Staffs are friendly. Overall is clean and comfortable. They provide bicycle for hotel guests which I made use of it to go around Georgetown. It’s a bit old but still useable at least. I would suggest the hotel to fix them and maintain it for the safety and pleasant ride. Another thing I would like the hotel to improve is the low water pressure at the hotel. Also the air conditioner, I think they need major service or change it if necessary.

          This was my second at this hotel. My friend and myself was satisfied with this stay and worth the money. Although I must say that they need to upgrade the air-con at all the rooms. The air-con was not cold at all then they change us to another room. I was totally was Okay with the share bathroom although I wished the bathroom could be abit bigger. The location of the so strategic where it's near to bus stop, hawker street so there's no need to worry to look for food. I'm happy

          The location is strategic with many eateries surrounding the hotel. There is also ample of parking space for those who are driving. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only downside is the armchair in our room was not that clean because it had stains on it. Nevertheless, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a budget stay in Penang.

          We had great stay at Chulia Heritage but will be really great if there are some environmental friendly setting in the hotel for example, a water dispenser so that we don't need to use so many single use plastic bottle, a recycling bin that allow us to recycle paper, plastic and etc. Other than this we enjoyed our stay very much

          Best for experiencing nightlife of Georgetown old city. Perfect location with spacious parking area. The building itself is an old mansion but renovated decently. and the best part is the clean bathroom. My suggestion probably fall to the staffs which is not really kind and helpful.

          I love its location close to almost every corner of Georgetown in my list. And I am super proud to show its front and compounds for IG pictures. Price is average, especially for two of us on weekends getaway. I kinda think the room is pretty small. But it has basic furniture including cupboard for shirts and that’s kinda make it understandable. Even the toilet is a bit small. You could wet your towel just by showered normally. My biggest turned off would be its cleanliness especially we could see a few dirty spots on blanket and bed sheet. Overall, it is kinda a good choice. For its price; yet in great location and good front for picture.

          The price was too cheap to be true and guess what? There’s no end suite toilet and the furnishing were spartan. Just think of it like a hostel with your own room. The sheets are old and worn and almost grey from use. If you want a cheap place to crash I suppose there are cheaper. But if you need your own privacy and toilet then this is Not the hotel. Even the rooms with en-suite toilets are quite sad. Bottom line. I’m not coming back here again.

          Location - Great. Surrounding had a lot of things to see, eat. Cleanliness - good. Towel were thick, & didn't have bad smell Facilities - there is a ironing board, hairdryer, cups, hot water dispenser. There is no mirror in rooms, single plugpoint in the room, no mineral bottles. Shared toilet - simple. Clean. But there is a huge opening (ventilation) located at the centre. It made me super insecure as it can't be covered. If someone from outside has intention to spy, they could if I'm showering. Made me super cautious and showering was a rush affair. Creaking floors and bed. The places is old in design. They refurbished it. But the floor has creaking sound. Made me uneasy. They also hang pictures of how the place was before refinishing. It was really creepy looking at the picture. Reminded me of a haunted mansion or prison. Staff - front desk was helpful enough. The housekeeping staff smiled, but I did not liked that he sat at the corridor when waiting / idle. It felt my privacy invaded when I had to use the shared bathroom.

          This hotel is a refurbished heritage hotel. So interior was so nice and comfortable. The room and reception area was huge. It's a good place to stay. Besides, it's near to Love Lane. So if you want some night life in Penang, I would recommend this hotel as you don't need to worry about transport back to hotel after you drink at Love Lane.
