“Cute and Comfortable Place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

It's a beautiful place to stay for a limited budget. Nice and cosy and very very clean. Though its self-service, but in case if you have any difficulty, the staff is really really helpful. Small rooms but good enough for a couple. Structurally also looks very nice. Only disappointment is that parking is limited and on first come first serve basis.

Room Tip: Book through online mode as it is cheaper than booking at the counter.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very friendly and helpful staff. Spacious room, central location. Good value/price ratio.
Things that need more attention, cleanliness. Its not bad, but its not fantastic either. Stains on duvet cover, floor felt dusty, bathroom (this was my main gripe) was not cleaned during daily housekeeping (dirty tiles) and there was a constant smell emanating from the water outlet in the shower. I believe it would have been attended to had I brought it up with the staff, but we were too busy exploring the sights. However, these are matters that should have been attended to without being prompted.

Nevertheless, I would come back here again.

Room Tip: higher floors are quiet

The location of Armenian Heritage Hotel is perfect: You avoid those noisy streets where many budget-options for backpackers are, but you are still in walking distance to whatever you want to explore. Rooms are clean, AC works fine but the only con is that WIFI does not. We had to go outside your room or to the lobby. Breakfast wasn't included in our room rate, but there are plenty of (cheap) options just around the corner (we tried the coffeehouse next to Heritage once, but we weren't really convinced). You probably won't get a better sleep at this rate at another place in Georgetown.

I didnt stay at this hotel but I went into the reception counter to asked for directions for the street paintings. It was on the 1st day of Hari Raya-around lunch time.My family had been walking around without much success at finding those street paintings The guy manning the counter was very courteous and nice and after listening , he took out a street map with details of where the street paintings was located. Most wont have bothered, but he showed me where we are and where those paintings were located. The next trip to Penang, I will definately consider this hotel to stay in. Thanks a lot as it has saved me a lot of time and energy.

For the quality, comfort and location of this hotel...I am making Armenian Street Heritage the no.1 choice when I next visit Penang! The hotel seems new, with tap-in card sensors for the room doors and the best thing we realized was that if the room door was not properly closed, the locking system starts beeping as a form of alarm. How cool is that?!

Location: it is walking distance to Kimberley Lane (night food market) and Pin Hooi coffeeshop (breakfast)...both have yummy food and one would really be spoilt for choice. Two shopping malls are also less than 10mins walk away (1st Avenue Mall and Prangin Mall). One can also walk (about 15mins) to the bus station nearby for buses to visit other areas/attractions in Penang island.

Staff were also helpful and responded quickly to our needs/enquiries. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who intend to stay in Georgetown!

We've requested for an early check-in (it was not peak period) but we were told that we could only check in at 2pm even though we arrived at 11am and we noted that the check-out is at 11am. The hotel is very basic with no fridge and no complimentary tea/coffee provided in the room. The bath and floor towels had 'Tune Hotels' tags on them. Our family room had a pillar between the two beds and it obstructed our views from certain angles when we watched TV from the beds. Poor service and the receptionist pointed us to the wrong place for the interactive museum. It's definitely not worth the USD 142 we have paid for the 2 nights stay and the only plus is its location as it's within walking distance to most of the street paintings.

Dear Guest,

We apologize for not meeting the desired service standards you expect from us.

Please note that our check out time is at 11 am sharp and housekeeping activities for check out rooms will start shortly thereafter. If you wish to check in earlier, you will have to purchase the early check in add on online at the time you made your bookings.

We try to accommodate needs of our guests in the best possible way we can. However, it also equally important that the housekeeping activities are carried out effectively and priority is given to guests with pre-purchased early check in option.

We take note of your requests for complimentary coffee and tea making facilities, and about the poor service rendered by the front desk staff as well as the Tune Hotel Logo on our towels and bath mats. I have shared your feedback with the parties concern for them to consider and improve the necessary.

And about the pillars in your room, for the best solution, please speak to our front desk to perhaps relocate you to a different room.

Thank you for highlighting these to us and we hope to restore your experience the next time you visit us.

See you.

Regards,
Sharon De Silva -Customer Care Manager
