      Highly recommended! ”

      I loved this place so much so that I kept extending my stay as I really didn't want to leave! Everything about Heritage Sixteen was amazing, the staff were so lovely and welcoming and really made an effort! The location is fantastic, close to all the shops, markets and bus stops. My room was lovely and the bathrooms were very well kept, breakfast was included and that was always nice with a good selection! Definitely staying here again when I re-visit Penang!

      Helpful and Gracious Staff, Very CLean and Ample Breakfast

      We had not planned to stay more then a 2 nights here but found ourselves miscalculating the visa process so we were stuck in Penang for 6 days. Actually, being stuck became a pleasure. The hotel is located right in the heart of Geaorgetown and it is easy to access the rest of the island from here by bus. The staff had answers for everything and made it extremely easy to book onward travel and entertainment and they had some great restaurant suggestions. The hotel was very clean and offered housekeeping services everyday. I am accustomed to breakfast being offered as a tea and some white toast but instead they had a buffet offering Asian and Western foods with tea and coffee and it was fantastic to have this included as well as a great way to start our day before we headed off on an adventure. Also, We found the family rooms spacious and very comfortable. We are a backpacking family and so have a budget to keep to for our longterm travel. We found this hotel definitely worth the money and really enjoyed our stay in Penang as there was plenty for a family to do!

      Awesome place for Kids too! ”

      We loved our stay at the Heritage 16! It was an excellent location, and the front staff (Alex and Jelly) were amazing at answering all our questions. They also loved playing with our daughter (1 year old) throughout the day. There is a plethora of living/common spaces to hang out in, which is great! There is also a ton of toys, and books, that adults and kids alike can play with. The only downside to this hotel is the NOISE! It was loud all. the. time. not always due to other residents, but it was right next to a club (pumping music until 2am every friday/saturday night, and 12midnight on sunday nights). The windows, just consider them as open windows, even with AC. (The AC works, and is cold!) ALso, free tea/coffee and biscuits all day! We met some great friends, and had some awesome food while staying here! I would recommend to anyone! (maybe bring a sound machine, which we travel with)

      My experience in Heritage 16”

      The stayover is located about 10 minutes away by walk to jetty (where the bus and ferries parked). Receptionist. Named Jelly, very helpful. Stayover. Receptionist is only open until 11pm. Check in open at 2 but we manage to get our room at 12. Big dining area downstairs. Water and biscuits is free all day. They also provide free tea and coffee. All rooms located upstairs. The stairs quite steep and high. Chill out area downstairs and upstairs. They provide lot of games/puzzle to play. Mini library. Computers with accessible Internet. Room. The room that we were staying was 11. Our room located just beside the bathroom. Single bed below and queen bed upstairs. Multi option of light which is accessible in both ways. I would say the room is very clean and cozy. Working AC, very cold. Quite spacy for 3 of us. Toiletries. Shared bathroom and toilet. During our stay, the toilet didnt have toilet paper but they provide liquid shower in bathroom, toilet and sink area. Functioning water heater. Clean. Extra. So, something came up and we need to leave early. There's no available receptionist as it was 3 in the morning. We just leave the room key and notes at the reception desk to inform about our leaving. Then, they (Jelly) contacted me and transfered me my deposit back. Yayy 😁🙌🏻
