1926 Heritage Hotel, Penang
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!

Acceptable Hotel
Well this really is a hotel that is right smack in the middle of all the things you look for in a hotel. Doesn't suck and not great either be it location, condition, comfort, cleanliness, service and price.

Good Location with the price tag.
- Located at main road (infront). - Decent Hotel. - Nice swimming pool. - Breakfast - not really impressive but it is OK with no problem with food. - Foods (eatery) - the hotel is located in between Gurney Drive & Padang Kota.
