The 1926 Hotel Penang has been made from 24 restored link houses that were originally built in 1926.
The property can be found along (Jalan) Burma Road which is a short bus ride from the centre of Georgetown or about 10 - 15 minutes walk to the popular upmarket area of Gurney Drive.
Here you can enjoy all the many varied restaurants and famous Hawker Food Centre or go shopping in the Gurney Plaza Mall or Gurney Paragon Mall.
This 3 star heritage hotel offers a total of 96 affordable guest rooms, from standard rooms to VIP.
Rooms start with the reasonably priced Standard room and go up to large family rooms with three queen sized beds.
Some of the more exclusive rooms also have their own private balconies.
The hotel has an outdoors swimming pool and gardens, meeting and conference rooms, free guests car parking as well as 24 hour reception, a tour desk and car rental.
Dining at the Hotel :
Cafe 1926 - serving local and western cuisine.
You will also find plenty of places to eat in the surrounding area - like most places in Penang. it is hard to walk far without seeing a food outlet!
The property is located directly on Burma Road, with a car park just in front of the hotel so that the guest rooms are not so close to the sometimes heavy traffic along this road.
To get into town if you do not have your own transport, you can use the RapidPenang Bus Services that run up and down this road every few minutes during the day and evening.
