Stayed for 3 night in family room with shared toilet on level 2. Was pleasant with the clean room and shared toilet was also in well condition. All the guests were very considerate :). The only issue only arise at night and early morning. The next door was a family of 5 with 2 kids and u can hear them... More

You are not allowed to wear your shoes on the second level. The shower is next to the toilet so the bathroom turns into a wet mess. The staff is so-so. Some very nice, some with attitude. They washed the main lobby floor leaving it wet, came too close to landing on my back! Rooms are loud/thin walls. You can... More

Spent two nights here last November. The location is perfect if you want everything in Georgetown walking distance, and the place is clean and the room we stayed in was comfortable. I hear the no slippers policy bothers some for the upstairs rooms, but we never got to take a peek. hahaha Bathrooms were pretty nice, and the room size... More

We've stayed for 2 nights at Chulia Heritage. We booked in advance as we were traveling with our baby so the hotel organized a crib for the baby. The rooms are quite basic, but clean and well-kept. we stayed at the ground floor, not close to the entrance, so it wasn't noisy at all. The hotel is well-located, walking distance... More

This was what we were looking for to break our roadtrip from Thailand back to KL. For RM130 plus a free upgrade to the Deluxe room, we got a spacious clean room to rest for the night, plus free parking in the heart of Georgetown. Walking distance to all the Nasi Kandar & roti canai favourites. Very accessible from mainland...best... More

Chulia Heritage Hotel excels in where it matters – perfect location, fabulous and friendly service, great ambience, spotlessly clean rooms and toilets, and all that at a very reasonable price. There is no breakfast offered, but you only need to walk out to the street and there is plenty of choice. Shared bathrooms (for rooms on the 2nd floor) are... More

Its strategic location with car park facilities is a big plus point for staying here. I stayed in a two-queen-bed room on upper floor (common shared bathrooms & toilets) with my two young boys (2yo & 4yo.) We were quite happy with our brief stay (1 night) here in overall. Due to its hidden location from the busy main road... More

Set back away from the road, is this colonial like, very white hotel. Ours was a family room (white) which was very comfortable and very clean. The small ensuite took a bit of getting used to. It’s called a ‘wet bathroom’. The shower is situated above the basin and just everything got wet. You would be best advised not to... More

Spent 3 nights at Chulia Heritage Hotel. The hotel is located in a small lane from the main street of Chulia Lebuh, but it's still accessible. The hotel staff are ever friendly and they do their utmost to help us with directions. It's located in the middle of most of the attractions like Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and the others.... More

Beautiful exteriors, amazing location, cute, little but comfy rooms, they have it all, but the bathroom is so small that the shower is directly above the WC! Not sure if all rooms are like that, if yes, that's one thing that they have to rectify. A restaurant would be a plus. Not too many options in the vicinity for vegetarians.... More
