1926 Heritage Hotel, Burmah Road, Penang

Start here
1926 Heritage Hotel (GPS: 5.423904, 100.320775) is a hotel occupying 24 double-storey terrace houses along Burmah Road and continuing on to Jalan Imigresen. The houses were originally government quarters for civil servants of the Immigration Department. It was redeveloped by the Penang Development Corporation in 1999, refurbishing the row of government quarters that were built in 1926. The buildings were designed in the Anglo-Malay architectural style, with elements of the Arts & Crafts style. Today it is a hotel offering budget accommodation.

The 1926 Heritage Hotel occupies government residential properties that were constructed at a time when George Town was expanding outward. It was during this period that this stretch of Burmah Road saw urban development, as it transformed from the countryside to the city. Within the vicinity, the clubhouse of the Chinese Recreation Club was completed in 1931, while across the road, Burmah Road Gospel Hall was completed in 1938.

Guest Rooms at 1926 Heritage Hotel

1926 Heritage Hotel offers budget accommodation in George Town. Having experienced a stay here, I can say that the rooms are clean and cosy, but furnishing is aged while amenities are limited. Every room has flat screen television, but it offers no satellite channels. Toiletries are limited to soap, bodywash dispenser, shower cap and bathtowels (no handtowels, no shampoo, conditioner and body lotion). Having said that, the room rates at this hotel makes it a very attractive basic accommodation in George Town.

Experiencing 1926 Heritage Hotel

My wife and I enjoyed a review stay at 1926 Heritage Hotel on 10-12 August, 2018. We had a lovely time there. The hotel offered us the Heritage King Room. It is cosy and clean, though a little aged. We had a nice time meeting up with Mr JP Wong, the Managing Director of the hotel, who took us on a hotel inspection tour and also treated us to a sumptuous lunch at Hainanese Delights Restaurant, which serves authentic Hainanese cuisine (which I will describe on a separate page).

Although I had a comfortable stay at this hotel, I have to honestly say that I had to readjust my expectation, having been so used to staying at 4 and 5-star establishments. I can see that this hotel caters for travellers who no-frills accommodation, who believe in not having to pay for the unnecessary. Judging by the number of guests during our stay, I suppose it manages to cater well to its target market.
