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

this hotel situates itself in a good location in the heart of Georgetown, that is near to many famous food streets and hawkers that open till late night. the heritage house is beautiful and gives a very warm and humbly feeling to room stayers. decorated with many plants and a few caged birds, the heritage house presents itself rich in...

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The location is good. Plenty of hawker stalls and coffeeshops nearby. Breakfast is provided by hotel and the Nasi Lemak is excellent. All the staffs are polite and helpful. The standard single room is simply furnished with a single bed, chair and a small cupboard. The room is not well insulated from noise... More

I recently stayed here for five nights and I had to say it has been a great experience. Room was spacious and clean, with A/C and a comfortable bed (as well as two types of pillow to choose from!). The heritage house is located on an inner street on Chulia Street, with lots of bars, cafes and food vendors around... More

This heritage hotel was really a find...charming decor, a triple with plenty of room, and a fabulous location just off of Chulia street with all the wonderful street food vendors. The small bar/breakfast room is lovely as is the interior courtyard. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is the noise if you have a room on... More

Very nice herritage hotel with al lot of character, located in the centre of Georgetown. We stayed 2 nights in a room at the back of the hotel which is very quiet, except in the early mornings when prayers from a nearby mosque served as our wake-up call (but I guess you'll face this issue in other hotels as well)....

We stayed here for two nights and I really felt sorry that I had to leave to our next destination. The cintra heritage house is a charming bed and breakfast in a more quiet side street of Chulia street (a very busy street in the center of Georgetown). The rooms are beautifully furnished and painted and have cute wooden window... More
