Pleasant and clean hotel”
When we initially arrived at the 'Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse' we were advised that we were not at the right place (there are two with the same name). We were directed to the correct guesthouse, which was on the same road....they are not very far apart. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who provided us with the wifi password, explained what time breakfast was, showed us where the toilets and showers were and took us too our room. Our room (a double with a shared bathroom) was very clean and a fair size. The shared facilities appeared very clean. During our stay we asked the reception staff various questions about how to get to places etc and they were very helpful. The guesthouse is within walking distance to teh sites in Georgetown. The reliable (and cheap) bus service can be used to access places that are further out. A very pleasant stay.
I've stayed in 3 types of Rooms at the Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse (this is the one at 15 Love Lane). My wife stayed in a king bed ensuite room. It was very comfy, with a sofa and desk as well as a big bed. I've stayed in both a standard single a/c room and a standard queen a/c; both of these had a shared bath. The king bed room, booked on Agoda cost $25/night. The a/c single was excellent value at 40 RM; the queen a/c cost a slightly less good value 60 RM. Breakfast is included. Breakfast generally had some kind of noodle dish, toast with margerine and marmalade, sometimes roti canai with curry, always some fruit, sometimes chicken and potato curry. It varied from acceptable to excellent. Coffe and tea afre freely available 24 hours a day. Staff were uniformly pleasant and generally very efficient. All in all, this is about the best deal I've found in Georgetown.
Great Stay at Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse”
As a traveller, you will never go wrong when staying in a hostel or guesthouse because you won't feel being alone in your travel. Such is our experience at Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse. I would like to commend all the guesthouse staff for being accommodating and very nice to all the guests. Although our room did not have a tv inside, the big flat screen tv at the living room gave us the chance to talk to other guests of the hostel and interact closely with the hotel staff especially when we need to inquire about Penang. The living room is always tidy. The usual breakfast is filling enough. The location is also good. Quite far from the resto bars at Love Lane, therefore there is no problem when trying to sleep early at night.
Second time staying here and very satisfied ”
It was the second time we stayed in Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse and we liked it even more. Perfect location on the Love Lane, nice atmosphere of old colonial Georgetown, clean rooms with wooden floors and air-con, clean bathrooms. Very friendly staff. Tea, coffee any time for free. Family room (where we stayed this time) - is very spacious and great and has windows. "minus" many of the rooms don't have windows. Will definitely stay here again if come back to Penang.
Lovely hotel, good atmosphere and comfy beds”
This is a lovely hostel, however be warned there is another Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse on Love Lane which is nestled in between Old Penang Guesthouse and the Reggae Bar, this is not the right hostel. The real one is further down the road and MUCH nicer!! The beds are super comfy and the hostel was great with a brilliant TV/Film selection. The breakfast was a bit strange but nice enough and the showers/toilets were great with plenty to go around. The floors are very loud as they are the originally wooden floorboards so you do shake a bit if someone is heavy footed but it adds to the charm. I would definitely recommend this hostel.
Value for money place!”
Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse is located in beautiful Georgetown. We found it pretty easy to walk to nearby historical places and to find good restaurants and hawker food stalls. The receptionist and other staff are very helpful. The rooms and toilets are also very clean. Red Inn will remain the first choice for us when visiting Penang.
value for money. red inn court doesn't change breakfast, but heritage change breakfast contents. but foods are similar and both nice. heritage is also bigger than court, it should have more rooms. the bed in single room is nearly queensize, big enough, with window and aircon. high and comfortable bed. the mixed dormitories in both heritage and court are also similar. on the last day of my stay in heritage. there was no water in bathrooms. but it is still the best guesthouse overall. met many nice friends in both hotels. great memory
Best guest house in Jorge Town”
i've been in jorge town twice and i never comeback to the same hotel before because of that is not good enough but this time i known every time when i plan to go there i will choose red inn heritage guest house for sure. all staff are really nice, room is great.location is so good you can take a bus very easily and not far from this guest house. also any kind of good local food it have a lot near here. it's over than the money that i paid. i told my friend before we go there that "from my experience ..don't expect too much".but after we go there we agree to said "red inn .. it's great."
Nice and Convenient Place to Stay”
Staffs are friendly,strategic location,snack and street foods can be found at Lebuh Chulia that's very near with the guesthouse,street arts are everywhere,there's always transportation such as busses and taxi roaming around in that area,local trishaw and also bicycle for rent are available too,I'd stayed for 6 days and 5 nights and find no problem at all, and this is my second time staying here. bout the wifi,connection were great too. There's also computer at the guesthouse where you can use for free. Location wise it is a safe place to stay. Keep up the good job Red Inn!
Clean and comfortable”
The Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse (RHG) is a really nice place to stay. We had our own room, which was clean and comfortable. Our room came with air-con. We had to share a bathroom, which were I little too far away for our liking. The toilets do not seem to be checked very often as on two occasions we had to ask for loo paper. Included in the price is breakfast. There is a small buffet selection. Breakfast was actually really tasty. The staff are pleasant and quite friendly. I have stayed in better places, but I have stayed in much,much worse.
Excellent staff & location”
We stayed in a superior bed ensuite. The bathroom was a tiny bit too small, but it had an excellent shower - one of the rain shower heads. Whenever there were a lot of people taking showers, the water dried up, but this was a small issue for us. There were so many positives about staying here: reasonable cost, really nice common areas, very clean, comfortable bed and pillows, decent breakfast, coffee, tea & water whenever you want it, really good location on Love Lane,pretty quiet over all (not to be confused with Red Inn next to the Reggae Bar) and the other travelers staying there were fun to talk with. Last, but not least, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I consider it my new place to stay in Penang.
Not bad guesthouse. ”
All the people around are friendly and helpful. This was our first trip to Penang. We ware using a paper map to walk around Georgetown by asking people around about the location. Will visit this guesthouse again if i get to Penang. Price are reasonable and breakfast are included. Highly recommend!!
Good location and resonably priced”
My stay was pleasant. The staff at the reception are friendly and helpfull at all times. The common bath rooms are also well lighted and clean. The common areas are also been mobbed and cleaned everyday. The rooms are simple and I would recommend you to book a room with air-condition as the weather can be very hot and humid especially im the day and mosquitoes at night. A recommendation to the Hotel owner - it would be great if Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse upgrade & install all their rooms with air-conditioning.
Great guesthouse and value for money!”
This was my third time in Georgetown, but my first time at the Red Inn Heritage. Out of the 3 places I have stayed, I would rate this the best because of it's location. Great central location but quiet enough so you can get some sleep at night. The facilities were great here. Free breakfast, hot drinks and water available throughout the day. Toilet and shower areas were clean and showers were hot. Nice area to chill out in and watch TVor go on your ipod etc. My room was small but had a window and air con and perfectly fine for me as well as clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Georgetown and would return.
It's valued for money”
Red Inn Heritage is very valued for money. I booked 4-bed room type for staying there. Though the room was a bit narrow, it was very clean and comfortable. Staffs there were very nice and helpful. For Thais, if you lucky like me you will meet Thai staff who can guide you in Thai how to travel by public bus. However, all staffs can speak English clearly. What I don't like in this hostel was only the internet connection. I could not access to the internet in my room. So, I had to sit at the lobby for using it. Apart of Internet, everything was great and really truly valued for your money.
Comfy, convenient ”
Friendly, helpful staff, and central location. Surprisingly, being just a stones throw from the busy Love ln/Chulia st hub, Red Inn is quiet and relaxed. Perfect for access/proximity to the major Georgetown highlights, and downtime when you need it. I've stayed on two occasions, both in my own room with queen/king bed. Good value for money. Will be staying here again.
A real find = I'll be back”
This isn't the first time my companion and I have stayed at Red Inn, and if I return to Penang and their rates stay as reasonable, it won't be the last. Our bed and pillows were very satifactory, a real find in itself since many places have beds that feel like table tops. The staff are uniformly nice. Breakfast is okay, but honestly, there's lots of nice cafes to have breakfast (The Western and Oriental over a block or so on Muntri). We only booked for three nights and then had to top up on our stay. By that time, everything was booked at Red Inn except for a Queen AC room with shared bath. I'm not so keen on shared baths, but theirs are really good, clean, nice showers, and enough of them to go around. Red Inn also has a really nice common area to hang out in.
Unique Style of Hotel with modified heritage hotel”
Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse is a very unique kind of hotel which suitable for backpackers and budget trip. It is near to town where a lot of nice and famous food are reachable within walking distance. Since Penang is promoting about heritage campaign, a lot of drawings on the heritage wall which are meaningful and unique are located within 15 to 20 minutes of walking distance. The inn also serves breakfast which is included in the hotel rental. But you might want to wake up earlier which the food is limited and will finish up if you were too late. Disadvantages of the Superior Family rooms are located at the second floor of the inn where there is no attached bathroom. One of the room that we stayed in was very hot due to the bright sunlight shinning on the windows of the room where the air conditioning unit is too small to maintain the cold temperature. Another disadvantages is the room is not sound isolated. Sound from the corridor can be heard due to the material of the building which is plaster and wood. Overall, the service of the hotel was good and friendly. If you are interested to experience something which is different from ordinary hotel, Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse can be one of the consideration
Clean rooms, great location”
this was our second time staying at the red inn heritage guesthouse. we were very satisfied the first time at the hotel, so we decided to return. breakfast is pretty standard, although some days they would put a little more out which was always a nice surprise. would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to penang. really worth the money if you want a/c and a comfy bed to sleep in (both of which become almost mandatory in the humid heat of penang).
Central location and clean rooms”
our stay at red heritage inn was very pleasant. the front of desk staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. the room was quite large and very clean on arrival. the rooms were, however, not serviced throughout our stay. the shared bathrooms, sometimes, did not seem to be very clean. the breakfast was good; it was buffet style and the options were mixed up day by day. the location was very convenient; it seemed to be a good starting point to get to most attractions in the city.
