Basic guesthouse with friendly staff, in a good location. You're about a 10 minute walk from everywhere in the city you'd want to see. Free wifi in rooms was appreciated. We looked at a few rooms before we chose our room for the night. One of them was facing a very busy road and would have been difficult to sleep... More

The location near the UNESCO world heritage zone and abutting Chinatown is a mixed blessing. The good points: step outside and you have some amazing street food within a 2 minute walk. I enjoyed eating at the hawker stands and having a beer at one of the many cafes. The bad: noise, noise, noise. Beyond the fact that Penang is... More

Worst place in Penang! We had called and booked a room with king size bed and had indicated the check in time. But by the time we checked in, our room had been given to another guest who complained about their room being very noisy. Therefore we had no choice but to take the only other available room. This is... More

I recently stayed here for four nights. When we arrived the lady at reception did not great us and there was a feeling as though we were annoying her when we had only asked to check in. We returned to reception to ask if their was anywhere she would recommend for us to eat and she pointed in every direction... More

Cintra Heritage House was just perfect for us - straight out the door into the streets of Georgetown, with all of the UNESCO World Heritage zone being within easy walking distance. This is a beautiful old building and if you are in Georgetown because of its world heritage ranking then this is one way to experience the history. We stayed... More

Beautifully restored place at a very good location. The building is beautiful and very welcoming. The rooms are nice, really quiet, no traffic sounds, but very dark (no daylight). The staff is friendly and service is okay, but it would not hurt if they would smile once in a while. We really missed a little place to sit outside (smokers... More

I stayed 4 nights to explore Georgetown. Location : Couldn't be more perfect in my opinion at the corner of lebuh Cintra and lebuh Chulia, go left 50yard on Chulia there a bus stop which can take you visiting most places on the island outside of Georgetown such as monkey beach at the national park, or take you to Komtar...

Stayed one night, was intending to stay for 2. Although not pricey, the service and quality is not hotel standard. Would rather spend 100 ringgit less and stay in a hostel, which is what I did the second night. The room was small with no window. Bed was hard. Breakfast was average and like what I got at the hostel,... More

Cintra is a relatively-recently renovated heritage building that has retained its personality. It's a not an expensive hotel (but does have private bathrooms and nice comfortable rooms) so don't expect 5*. There was a light breakfast included, the bed was really comfortable and the bathroom good (it's a 'wet' bathroom, but well-designed so the shower didn't spray away from the... More
