Nicely furnished, incorporate in a traditional house. Deluxe room is located on second level, need to climb stairs up to the room. Room is clean and nice, pillow is too soft will sink in the moment head crash on the pillow and dont feel the elevation of pillow.

There is so much great food around the hotel, that in reality, you won't be spending much time in the room anyway. Highly recommend it and I will be back.

Parking”
Athought packing is not friendly in this area, however I found it's not difficult to find parking since public car parking occupancies turn over is quite frequent. We stay for 3 day 2 nights, so far the worst case is park our car 200m far from the hotel. We are driving, famous food places are very close to our hotel(driving distance 2km-4km). The room we stay was clean and we have nothing to complaint about it.

Small boutique hotel”
It's a lovely small hotel. Booked myself a deluxe room. The hotel provide a room with facing front road. The room is clean with basic necessity. I love that they provide water in a glass bottle rather than normal plastic bottle. Furthermore the 3in1 coffee is not the typical nescafe brand. Something different. A bit hard to find parking place though. Little bit on the low side... the check in and check out process kind of slow. I'm not sure what paperwork the need to fill in. Other than that.. no issue. Will definitely booked again.

Charming hotel”
We enjoyed our stay here after a disaster booking at another hotel. Please do NOT go to Heritage 1926. IStay turned out really nice. They have beautiful artwork and is right next to a great Italian restaurant where we ate several times. The room is a little small, but it is clean and nicely decorated. You will feel quite comfortable. For the price, it is good value. (Don't book room 101 -- the tiles were not properly done). We stayed at the ones near the windows.

Okay”
The room is not sound proof at all. You can hear guests from the next room chit chatting and snoring. That is the biggest downside. And since the flooring is of wood, it also makes a creaking sound when you step on certain spots. Parking is really hard to get. If you came back at night, you need to park quite far away from the hotel. But the interior design and the staff is nice.

Pleasant Stay”
The hotel was clean, newly renovated, nearby lots of hawker foods stalls with lots of char koay teow. You will need to take a grab to get to the heritage sites, they will cost you about 10 - 15 rm per trip. Cute Italian restaurant at the property and the lobby area is pretty picturesque.

For those on a Budget with Low expectations”
What I enjoyed: My girl friend and I stayed at the ground floor occupying a queen size bed. The room has a high ceiling with a small window for some natural light right at the top. The location is pretty quiet at night. There is a hawker Centre next to it. However during our visit it coincides with the Dragon King festival so it wasn’t operating full fledge. It’s very convenient to Grab. From Rangoon Rd to Weld Quay is RM7. You could take a 30mins walk too You can get filtered water from the pantry. What I dislike:. The pillows. Couldn’t sleep well on those, it will be great if they have two types of pillows. One firmer (memory foam/latex) size and one fluffy (cotton/down). The liquid soap in the bathroom. Would be better if it’s just a universal soap smell like the hand soap.

Great Hotel!”
This was my second stay and istay hotel did not disappoint. Rooms are quite small but spotlessly clean with super comfortable bed and quality linens. Nice cold air conditioning and piping hot shower. Location is a little outside of the "historical" section of Georgetown but right across the street from a hawker food court and multitude of restaurants. I will definitely stay here again. Highly Recommended!

Pleasant Stay”
Hotel name is not found on Grab, call to the hotel for assistance before calling a Grab at airport. The room has limited space but can still fit in max. 2 person with a 65L backpack & a medium luggage. The staff are friendly and helpful. Got free laundry but depends on how many days you stayed, can check with the reception for more info. Lot of food stalls in front of the hotel and within walking distance. Walking distance to Sunway Hotel area with more food stalls. Easy access to Grab from the hotel. Tasty food at the hotel restaurant named as Viva la Pasta.

There is no parking allocated for the hotel guess. It’s very difficult to find parking around the hotel as there’s a food court opposite it which opens until late night. If you simply park around, you might get a summon the next morning. Other than parkings problem, overall is fine. It’s very easy to look for food around it. You’ll receive a welcome drink on arrival. Breakfast is good.
