                  good location, convenience to all the place

                  No fridge in the standard deluxe room

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  Chulia hotel is located in a good spot, set back from the main road which keeps the noise from traffic and other locations down. It is within walking distance to little india and lots of restaurants and bars, and lots of buses.The rooms were clean and the airconditioning was very good. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

                  The rooms (especially the bathroom) are pretty small. It is quite a noisy hotel and you can hear people in reception and the people upstairs running, and making noise easily. Our room also had a over door window which had no curtains so it was quite light in the room all night.

                • Family with children
                  7.4

                  Clean, bright & spacious. Free parking. Surrounded by many good local food like Penang laksa, cendol, char kway teow, porridge, bak chang, desserts. Shops for souvenirs, night markets & safe for families traveling with children. Recommend for traffic mirror to be installed at the entrance of the driveway as it is a blind spot to turn out to main road.

                  Peak period surcharge. No flexibility to add an additional bed even though there's space in the room.

                • Couple
                  5.0

                  -Centrally located

                  -room was musty/moldy strong smell -no shelves in bathroom to put items on or in shower. -in bathroom after shower the whole room is one big wet mess -hard bed/hard pillows -this is a backpackers place but with higher prices, this should be listed as a hostel not a hotel

                • Single
                  7.8

                  Clean, comfortable and free wireless internet. Good location they state at Chulia street near the food, the staff at the front desk were very friendly care of single girl. The Room design was white colour so very romantic

                  No phone & some ants in desk

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  very very nice staff and helpful the price is worth to stay. even the share bathroom but is very clean. suitable for friend trip. location is also good.u can walk around Gorge town city.

                • Couple
                  8.8

                  The location was excellent and it was cosy and comfortable

                  Only thing I'd suggest is a mini bar in the rooms.

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  Clean, nice design aesthetic in lobby and rooms. Comfortable beds.

                  Hotel is fine but the neighbourhood is a bit dodgy - located on a street with the bus stop, most stores cater to lower-income citizens. Late evenings, the streets are deserted so I'd recommend using the metro or taxi direct to the entrance.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  Chulia is very well maintained and is very picturesque. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It's location is right in the heart of Georgetown and is very good value for money.

                  The only thing that we didn't like was the design of the bathroom. The shower was right in the middle of the bathroom so that when it is used it gets everything else there wet, including the toilet, and anything on or near the basin or hanging on the towel racks. Any that you don't want to get wet needs to be removed from the bathroom. However, having said that, I suspect that if that was fixed up, they could easily charged a lot more for the rooms. The nearby hotel was significantly more expensive.

                  Very good price for the hotel. Simple but very nice. Old colonial building direct in the centre of old Georg Town.

                  7.4

                  Clean, friendly staff, great location and was as it said it was!

                  Rooms were very small, no breakfast facilities.

                  Location and friendly and helpful staff

                  The rooms were damp and the hot water did not work

                • Single
                  7.8

                  In city area. Working distance to eateries. Simple and clean.

                  I had the first room downstairs next to reception/lobby. Not a good place to have a room because of the "noisy" activities at the lobby and reception. It was noisy even at midnight!

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Hotel was very cheerfully decorated and clean. Our room had a massive kingsize bed. The location was good, at the heart of the Chulia Street action. Bus services nearby on Chulia Street, including the free shuttle bus. We wanted to extend our one night stay but were told the hotel was fully booked. This was good for us as we then found a better hotel with a pool and balcony. Check out the 1926 Heritage Hotel. We liked it better. That said this was very nice and we would stay there again as a second choice.

                  We had a ground floor room which suffered from a lot of noise from the room above, even though those who had rooms above had to remove their shoes before going upstairs. Everyone left their shoes on the staircase which created a trip hazard.

                • Single
                  10.0

                  I love the bed too much!!!!!! Which with wide plasma even though not really spacious but it is so worth it. The environment made myself relax and I'm not hesitate to be their regular guest definitely. The location is in the heart of Penang Island and that's makes me easier to go anywhere from here

                  The room is limited!!!!!!! :(
