My friends and I stayed here for a night. Since we were on a budget trip we decided that it was best to take the room with shared bathroom. Overall, it is a pleasant place to stay. Just that the signage to the hotel isnt very clear so we missed a few times, had to drive around again and search carefully because the hotel entrance is situated in between shops. I hope the management team would do something about the signage of the hotel because we had trouble looking for it as it was our first time there in Georgetown. Other than that, the staffs are friendly & helpful. Thanks to the cleaner for making sure the shared bathroom is clean.

Used this place only as a place to shower and recuperate considering there was much to explore in Penang. Its located along the street where it comes to life at night between food and parties. It has ample private parking and you can definitely take advantage of leaving the car there considering how hectic traffic flow around the surrounding area can be. The place is a straightforward hotel and to me, it hits all the checklist for what I look for in an area like Chulia.

The good things is nice Receptionist and cleaner ( I forgot my glasses), quiet place, free bicycles from 7:00 AM-7:00PM ( but almost them are flat-tyre, some broken parts you should check carefully before taking go around), some parking lots for those who driving. You should read and double check things you want for your room before booking. My room is 215, totally different with what it is on booking.com: the wrap is not clean, not bottle water, no coffee, no light on table, double room but there’s one pair of slipper, shared bath room. And, you will be charged 1 night for cancellation after canceling day. the price is quite higher for what they are. Hope Chulia Heritage would be better in coming time! Kate

This hotel situated strategically middle of Georgetown. Access to a lot places of interest within walking distance. The room we booked was relatively small however upon request from the front desk, we go an upgrade to a bigger room. The advantage is our room was located in the ground floor. Front desk was friendly and pleasant and the ambiance of the hotel was well lit and quiet at night. Room for improvement, I would to suggest to them to upgrade to furniture in the room as it looked very used up. May be due to high occupancy. Overall we was satisfied with the stay.

The hotel location is walking distance to the love lane, street art penang, chew jetty and street night hawker. The room was not that small but the bedsheets seems not washed properly. Dont stay on ground floor as it can be very noisy esp on weekends
