We were given a complimentary room upgrade after our room's air conditioning were not cooling enough. Room were outstanding with king size bed. Location is a direct walk in from the famous and busy Chulia street where you can find lots and lots of amazing local food. For a budget hotel price, this might be one of the best if... More

We stayed at Chulia Heritage Hotel for 3 nights and had a very comfortable stay. The location is within the UNESCO heritage old town and within a stones throw from some lovely bars and restaurants. The hotel rooms are small and don't have the same glamour as the impressive reception area but were very functional. Our bed was very comfortable... More

The price is cheap, the hotel is located nearby to a lot of attractions. Friendly staffs as well. Shared bathroom is not bad, only the aircond inside my room will drop water when switch on, need to wait after a 10mins just stop dropping.

Chulia Heritage Hotel was within walking distance of many fine restaurants and shops. We had to take a taxi to the fort and other tourist locations, but the drive was not bad. Positive points: *Former mansion is clean and airy. It has a small Buddhist shrine behind the front desk. *Staff was very friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff did... More

We stayed at the Chulia Heritage Hotel for 4 nights and had a great stay. The hotel and lobby immediately swept us off our feet. The rooms were cozy and absolutely spotless. The location is perfect if you are looking to explore Georgetown and just steps away from the most delicious Indian food and dim sum. Wifi was actually pretty... More

This place has no facilities be it a pool or garden, might as well call this a B&B. We reach just before check in time and waited at the lobby which has no fan nor a table. Seriously? A hotel? It's worst than hostel. Might as well call this a motel. We were told by Natasha to pay a small... More

Chulia heritage is just a clean bed to sleep during sightvisiting. Be careful!!! The upstair rooms share the toilets. Only some rooms have their own toilets. Location was perfect. Walking distance everywhere. No breakfast. They didn"t even give a second key for the room...bad service... Continuous renovation. Sanding, painting, etc. The room had a continuous smell. We left the next... More

Quiet and clean and a very short walk to great food. The only drawback was no real area for sitting around during the frequent rains we encountered. The rooms are a decent size and spotless. Chulia mansion across the road has a great roof terrace for evening drinks
