good, no-frills hotel
Overall, a decent, no-frills hotel. I think they could be a much better value if they set up wifi, make their breakfast a bit fancier, and provide shower temperature adjustment. LOCATION: The hotel is a bit far from Georgetown (~25min walk), but there are some good hawker food locations very close. ROOM: It's an old, functional, but clean and tidy building. There was a bit of mold growing in the grout in the bathroom, but I noticed this in all 3 Penang hotels I stayed in. This one had less than average. The toilet has a bidet. The hot water requires turning on a switch outside the bathroom, waiting for the in-room boiler to heat up then using it. As there is no control on the heat, you have to time when you use it so it's not too cold or scalding hot--this is very bad plumbing retrofit on the part of the hotel. AMENITIES: The pool in the back is very nice. An shared ironing board in the hallway looks like it hadn't seen much use. Breakfast was included which were noodles one day, congee, an egg-frying station, and toast machine. It's good enough, though I'd recommend skipping the free breakfast to go out to get a better flavorful breakfast since you're staying in Penang. WIFI: The wifi apparently hadn't been working for a long time such that they had notices about it. I looked around and actually didn't see any wifi routers visible in the room or the hallway near my room so I think they just don't have wifi in the rooms.

Value and service & location make it my choice!
Heritage 1026 was recommended to me by a young local - he was "spot-on". A great value in a great location (quiet & comfortable with everything U need nearby and none of the tourist craziness). I will stay here again!

I had booked this hotel, due to location near Gleneagles, and price... and I must say, you get what you pay for, a little more and you get so much more in Georgetown. This hotel have seen better days, I took like forever to check in.. even only me in to check in. The room was ground floor, old style, but okay and clean. The TV signal was not working, also many issues with the Wifi, and when ask in the front desk, no answer or solution when it will be fixed. Next time in Penang, I will find other hotel for my stay.

Apparently the room allocated to me was vacant for few days. The housekeeping did not check whether the condition of the bedsheets. I checked in and found lizards faeces on it. Called housekeeping and was changed after waiting for more than 15 mind. The locality of the hotel is great and easily accessible to food.
