We booked the family suite and had the downstairs room. We've had a very positive experience staying here for 2 nights. The front desk receptionist was very helpful. We appreciated the complimentary bottled water. The room was very well air-conditioned and the bathroom comes with adequate hot water shower. Though the entire bathroom gets wet each time we have a... More

My wife and I were very happy to have gone here. The amenities are low - no pool or other things like that. But it is very comfortable. The one downside is that we had to share bathrooms and showers, but it's really not that big of a deal. ...except for one night when half of China was there. They... More

The first stay on the 28th March I was allocated a room next to the entrance near to the car park. My only concern : my curtain if... More

The Chulia Heritage Hotel is an excellent choice on the Chulia street backpacker circuit, in many ways a boutique hotel but offering backpacker hotel prices. It's long driveway, elegant decor cream-and-gold colour scheme, professional management and immaculately clean status, perfectly functioning and tastefully appointed facilities provide incredible value and comfort in a central location in George Town. The budget rooms... More

This hotel completely met our expectations, it is right in the middle of Georgetown, it has character and strategic location not too far from Komtar, to go around town. Actually there are bus stops nearby also, but we prefer to walk to Komtar and get the buses from there. Friendly and helpful staff, we received a nice spacious room on... More

8th March We booked Standard Queen with en-suite bathroom but upon arrival (5pm), we were told that due to a fire that happened the day before, the room is no longer available. Why wasn't we informed in advance? We were given two choices, stay in their Basic Queen with common bathroom or move to another nearby hotel. Tired & hungry,... More

The hotel is basically in the middle of town. It is walking distance to the famous Nasi Kandar line clear and other eateries. The room is very clean with comfy beds. The receptionist are super friendly and I had indeed a pleasant stay. The room was affordable and the ambiance was great. Wold definitely come back. :)

First of all, compliments to the photographer! He really did a good job, too good almost. We booked the hotel because of the nice images and the overall good reviews. Well, it is a budget hotel. Maybe our expectations where to high. The room they wanted to give us first, smelled terribly of mold and we asked to have another... More

The hotel is very beautiful and is located right in the middle of Chinatown, it is very quiet though and you get a good night sleep. The room was sparkling clean and very large, we have two big beds. The rooms with ensuite bathrooms have small bathrooms with a shower in the middle, so when you shower you splash everything... More
