What a disappointment! Tiny rooms, no comforts what so ever. The photos are a total lie. For this price I would have expected a lot more or at least a comfortable stay. I don't understand how this hotel got such positive reviews. Don't stay here.

This Hotel was a great find. Its located a bit off the Chulia street, so therefore no noise from the street. Value for money is good I would say. What really, I mean REALLY was annoying was the fact that the room is not dark at night. Reason for this were the windows over the door pointing directly to the... More

I stayed in boutique hotels everytime I visit Penang. This time I though I tried Chulia Heritage because of its name. Upon entrance, it was not my expectation as the hotel is a simple modern hotel instead of heritage design. The heritage flavour stops at the location. Having said that, the room is clean and minimal with a bathroom fit... More

I booked this hotel as it was one of the cheaper options for a private room in Georgetown. It's in a great location near Little India and the UNESCO heritage area and the hotel itself is very nice. If you're looking for a good budget hotel option this is a great choice as it was clean, comfortable and the service... More

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.
