I really liked the style of Cintra. An old house with interior gardens and open areas. Very beautiful house. Rooms are ok and breakfast was good enough. The location is good. Very close to the old city and to the shopping area as well.

Must say I was a bit disappointed with our stay here. The rooms look so different from the pictures. The rooms are very dark, bed was hard, no fridge and the air-con needs to be re-gased as it isn't cold. For some reason, we could hear into the next room - we could hear them showering as if they were... More

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of May. Loved every minute. Friendly staff, comfortable, cool colonial rooms, great breakfast. Cintra Street is a fantastic location in China Town just of the 'Backpacker' area of Chulia Road so a 5 minute walk from great cafes, street-hawkers and shops and a 10 minute walk from the sea. A beautiful heritage... More

When you first see Cintra Heritage House it reminds you of the pre-war houses.....And it is but converted and refurbished cleverly into a Hotel. The staff Imran and his team are a very helpful group of people that made our trip even more pleasant. I was there with my 3 kids and their 2 friends (total of 5 children). We... More

We ended up here on a busy holiday weekend because our first choice, the Chulia Mansion was all booked up. It's not somewhere that I would normally consider, but for the price (we paid RM150) it was actually not bad. We were allocated a front room with a window over looking the street on the ground floor. The room was... More

Do not stay here. On a short trip to George Town whilst on a visa run from my home in Bali I used this hotel as my base. On first arriving having been promised a window room there was no window, only out onto the stairs. The stairs however are the only good thing about this place and that is... More

We stayed in a family room (1 superior bed + 1 twin bed) which happened to be located facing the street. On weekends (Friday and Saturday), the noise from traffic kept us awake the entire night! Somehow for such a quiet street during the day, the traffic was non stop throughout the night. The room was slightly dingy as well... More

I stayed at Cintra for 2 nights over a long weekend as a solo traveller. Room was basic but comfortable, large comfortable bed, kettle & tea/coffee making facilities - no fridge. I didn't experience any noise problems other then the mosque prayer calls. Definately recommend, good location and great for the price.

Such a charming place nestled on a quiet street. Went into photo and Instagram frenzy with this place! Single room had a large bed, very comfortable. Love the black and white checkered tiles of the bathroom! Breakfast was simple but lots of good food around to supplement. Price affordable and of good value.

I got to know this hotel when I booked my flight from Air Asia Go (airfare + hotel). It's one of the cheapest that time. The hotel is at Geogetown itself. Walking distance to most heritage sites. As the websites tells you, it's all basic accommodation. It's a bed and ala carte breakfast. The hotel is bordering between a home... More
