I stayed in 1926 Heritage Hotel from the 9th of July - 12th of July along with a party of 5.
The rooms were excellent - clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable, making for very good sleep in between our pig-outs in Penang.
The hotel breakfast was simple but very delicious. I would suggest that you wake up at 7 and head to the cafe for breakfast, which is when the food is still piping hot and extremely fresh. If hotel breakfasts are not your thing, the hotel is incredibly conveniently located to the best food stalls in Penang. Literally flanked by famous eateries, there is no need to travel far for good food. We spent most of the 4 days we were there just attempting to try all the food that was within the vicinity.
The hotel is also conveniently located a stone's throw away from the heritage part of Penang, which saved us a great deal on transport costs, given that we walked most of our trip. Transport was also not an issue, when needed. The hotel has a transport booth, where there are service agents who can get you cheap transport in minutes.
My overall experience at the hotel was an excellent one and I would recommend anyone going to Penang to stay at the hotel. 3 thumbs up! - SK Chan
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 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.
1926古迹酒店始建于1926年，原为英国殖民政府官员和地方政府高级官员及其家属的住宅区。经过翻修，曾经的住宅区如今已经改造成了古迹酒店，建筑本身还是保留了许多英殖民地时期的建筑元素以及风格。酒店坐落于车水路(Jalan Burma) 的中心地带，毗邻移民厅路(Jalan Imigresen)。酒店靠近乔治市(Georgetown) 的购物中心、文化遗迹和金融区，离槟城国际机场(Penang International Airport) 也只有30分钟车程。
1926 Heritage Hotel’s central location makes exploring Penang and moving around a lot easier. The Hotel is strategically located on the main bus route from Komtar to Batu Feringghi while many eateries are within walking distance, some operating 24 hours. The famous Him Heang Biscuit Shop for instance, is just opposite the Hotel.
