Located near all the good hawker food, this place is value for money. We got a free upgrade to the triple shared room (yay!). Roomwise, it's basic - would be good if they can have more space to hang your towels/clothes. Some hooks will be great. Shared toilets were clean but toilet papers were not replenished quickly enough.

Chulia Heritage hotel provided us with a very well located base to explore the island of Penang. For the money we paid the hotel felt extremely good value, with basic, clean, bright rooms and numerous, spotless communal bathrooms. The entrance to the hotel felt very grand and the staff were extremely welcoming. Chulia street is a great place to be... More

I came to Chulia for a short stay and experienced a nice suprise of being upgraded to a deluxe room which was a beautiful stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful to me during my stay, esp Wong the front desk lady. I will definitely be back and staying at the deluxe king size room. Even the shared area... More

Perfectly located comfortable hotel. Within 10-15 minutes walk you can find Kota Cornwallis fort, famous Blue Mansion and - last but not least - the Red Garden, the best place to dine on the island (voted one of 10 best places of Asian food by CNN). Rooms with a freezer, a flat-screen TV and air-condition. Very clean, efficient and helpful... More

Was on a 2 days 1 night Trip to Penang with my friends and choosen this hotel because of the reviews. The hotel is surprisingly somewhere in the middle of the town and it has its own parking and security guard. The hotel service is good, we checked in, and the room is very clean. The floor would make some... More

We stayed at the ground floor. The room is spacious, nice and clean. But for light sleep person like me, it's quite difficult to sleep well. The upper floor are built on hollow layers of planks so when people passing by in rush then you will wake up easily. Perfect location. It's only walking distance to some attractions and famous...

A bit difficult to find out there was actually a hotel located behind the road street. Car park available and room cleanliness was poor. Rooms has bad smell when your 1st enter to the room. Overall the room size was big. Anyway, it take times to just check in 1 guest and lobby no air cond.

I stayed here for couple days, the room itself is not so bad, except it smells chemical once you enter the room, kinda toxic. So we had to open the door and window to get out from that smell. Air conditioner placement is not right as because the AC shoot straight to our face when lay on bed. Shower is... More
