I booked through Agoda, a standard double room with ensuite. The hotel is easy to find, well maintained, clean & the rooms to a good standard, although they are small & sterile, everything is white, a little colour would be great. Good for a couple of days after that I would need somewhere with more space to feel comfortable, even... More

Stayed one night in Family Deluxe Room with my parents. No outside view, we can only see the other rooms' windows and doors, sigh. The room rate was RM290 with no breakfast. Quite expensive. The room is next to the reception, can hear people talking, walking, etc. No bellboy, another sigh! No cafe. I was 'advised' by the Chinese receptionist... More

Located off Lebuh Chulia, short walk to the food stalls at Lebuh Chulia, Lebuh Kimberly and Jalan Penang. Quite far from Armenian St and Clan Jetties. Parking Available. Helpful Staff, clean room and comfy pillows. Generally OK. Upstairs rooms do not have a toilet even basin in the room. We don't mind shared bathroom but that was INCONVENIENT WITHOUT A... More

Chulia Heritage is located perfectly, surrounded by many cafes, restaurants and pubs down the street. It is also within walking distance to Carnarvon Street & Love Lane. The service there was great! We were upgraded from a Standard Double to a Deluxe Double Room FOC! :) They also provide very convenient parking. The hotel looks grand and welcoming; however, the... More

Receptionist was not friendly or helpful. Family room was better than expected, towels personally a little bit drab. Sheets felt cheap. Interior deco was simple and pleasing and the location and parking availability is up be commended. Beware some of the rooms do not have a toilet hence a communal shower. The room we stayed in was directly outside the... More

We booked Chulia Heritage Hotel again during the Chinese New Year period from February 17th to 22nd. I made a boo boo and booked a day short. Since they were out of standard rooms, I booked another extra night with their Deluxe Room. Upon checking in, the reception told us that they are upgrading us for all 5 nights to... More

Even though it is just like a normal place to stay, I just love the staff there. The place is clean. Free usage of bicycle, toiletries provided and security guard on duty 24 hours. Would definitely come back again.

Convenience location near to shopping,pubs and local food street is within walking distance. Simple and nice setting value for money A good change to experience a stay in a heritage building with a minimal rate.

I had high hopes for the Chulia Heritage Hotel but apart from the impressive facade which has obviously been renovated well it was a real let down. Rooms are quite cramped and simple to say the least. When I stayed there was still renovations going on so there were limitations on the rooms available. Staff were underwhelming against similar level... More
