I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend who wanted something basic, clean and charming without the luxury of high priced hotels. I would also definitely return and stay again. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay that's still comfortable and clean - THIS IS IT!
Even it is not a five star hotel yet i been treated like a real five star guest. The warmth and kindness that they have showed to me is really worth it to be here and i will be back again once i came back to Penang for a holiday.

This heritage hotel is handy to George town and the beaches. We appreciated the friendly helpful staff who were very willing to help out with suggestions and advice for getting around.

I stayed there for 3D2N. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room quite big and clean and surrounding was clean and quiet. The room has aircond, tv, hot shower and jug kettle. Located in middle of the town, nearby to Komtar, Gurney Drive, Padang Kota (Esplanade), etc.
I love the scenery of the hotel's heritage building which suited the hotel's name. Seeing is believing. Definitely, I will stay in this hotel in my next visit to Penang.
Built in 1926, it 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. 1926 Heritage Hotel Penang occupies 24 beautifully restored link houses along Jalan Imigresen in the heart of Jalan Burma. Georgetown’s heritage enclave, shopping and financial districts are nearby – and the Penang International Airport is a mere 25-minute drive away.
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 bustles of the world around you.
Rooms are pleasantly decorated and furnished, and some rooms come with private balconies. The hotel has 96 tastefully designed and affordable suites and guestrooms with the elegance of yesteryears.
