Chulia Heritage Hotel
Ranked #35 of 85 Hotels in George Town
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Stayed there for 3 nights and overall quite impressed with this place. Car parks aren't usually occupied as most occupants are overseas travelers. Facade was white and impressive. Its not your usual hotel. Its like a mansion with lots of room with heritage ambiance (high ceiling and structures).

The bedroom was white setting but more importantly, very neat and comfy. Toilet is a small but again very neat and not a problem. (Note: shower will get most of the area wet :)).

Location was superb. Lots of places to walk to and eateries. Near the famous Chendol store and Komtar area. All walking distance.

Staff is quite helpful. Happy to help out when asked.

They provided free wifi services which was a bonus.

Room Tip: Hint: As this is like a mansion , try to get a room with attached bathroom and away from the lobby...

Some very good things:
- Clean rooms
- Very clean sheets and towels
- Smiling staff and friendly welcome
- We were able to borrow a (tiny) umbrella when it rained

A few things I enjoyed less:
- Shared bathrooms were not very clean; drains didn't all clear quickly; sinks were gross
- Saw people washing their clothes in the shared sink, that shouldn't be allowed
- Old floors = noisy
- Doors slam which is also noisy
- Mattress wasn't great - my husband was sore all day
- I'm not a fan of the "no-shoes" policy in a hotel, but that's just me!

All in all, I think it's a good option for the price range and in light of some of the other places on this street.

My wife and I recently stumbled across this hotel looking for something a little better than most of the dives we came across in Georgetown. It was a breath of fresh air after seeing some of the other places in the area. For starters it was clean, which can't be said for many of the other hostels and guesthouses. It was also set back off the road which made it a lot quieter. They have options for most budget ranges; everything from shared bathrooms to private rooms to fit entire families. They had satellite tv with my English channel options and nice hot water bathrooms. My only complaint is that it was a little pricey for SE Asia, but that seems to be the norm in Georgetown. We couldn't find a private bathroom room for less than 75RM anywhere in town. If you are willing to spend a little more, this is definitely a great place to check out.

A great Hotel in the centre of things yet set back off the main street, which makes it nice and quiet. Spotless clean with lovely friendly staff. My only comment was the walls between each room were not finished off properly and had gaps at the windows, So you could hear people in the next room. Im sure at this stage it should have been rectified. Well worth visit.

A lovely cahracter hotel bang in the centre of things on Lebuh Chulia but set back off the main street so nice and quiet. All-white decor, largish rooms with good basic facilities- excellent value for money.
