Very busy and Noisy - more like an Inn for staff housing than guests. Rooms have Thin walls so you can hear people talking and walking outside or in the next room as if they’re inside your room with the creaky floors. Also no windows - feels so confined. The tap water tastes bad and sometimes turns yellowish brown. You... More

Once i arrived in Red Inn Heritage, i was immediately given a room towards the back of the guesthouse. The hall way is extremely long, a rare shophouses found in Southeast Asia. Bathrooms and toilets were clean. There are complementary tea and coffee. Given the price, i have nothing to complain about. Overall, it is good and acceptable.

A bit disappointed I have to admit . On Agoda site and I am talking about the Red Inn Heritage 15 as there are 2 others in that Love lane, it says, free wifi and city view. But no, wifi is inexistent and there is barely a window and certainly no view at all. Otherwise location is good.

Clean and basic, walkable distance to historic sites and eateries. Toilets and shower rooms are outside so could be cold if you shower at night. Breakfast is very basic as well. I was staying in the aircon room and the aircon worked well.

Good budget place for sleeping. Recommend the airco dorms for few Myr more and you'll sleep perfect. The location is good and you can refill your water. The manager is a bit of a weird guy. I had no troubles but some of my room mates did. He could be a vit rude when you ask him something but then... More

First of all please note that there are two Red Inn's on Love Lane; the one I am reviewing is at the end of Love Lane but the second (which seems to get worse reviews) is situated in the middle closer to the other guesthouses. We arrived in Georgetown without a booking and were lucky enough to get a double... More

We stayed at the Red Heritage Inn for one night as a layover hotel. We stayed in a private double room with air condition and shared bathroom for 55 Rp per night. The room and bathrooms were standard and clean - no problem with sharing. The room price includes breakfast but it is not big, just toast with butter and... More

The first two nights at this place were fine, however on the third day I noticed little lines of raised bumps which were red and terribly itchy. Googled the symptoms and it appeared that they might be bed bug bites. An inspection of the sheets revealed lots of little black spots which are apparently also consistent with an infestation.

We arrived late in Georgetown and needed a place to stay for one night until we could find a longer term place to stay. Red Inn Heritage had a room available on the first floor towards the back. The shared bathrooms behind it were dirty and disgusting. Water didn't drain properly. For hours we lay awake at night hearing the... More
