We stayed at this Charming Heritage Residence (they don’t call it a hotel in their website) when we went to Georgetown last June 3-4,2011. The Straits Collection is at the Center of Georgetown. Very near the Goddess of Mercy Temple.
The Manager in Charge Karen, is very friendly. We were offered drinks when we arrived. And even if it was before check in time we were allowed to enter our Residence.
The Residence we got is a CHARMING 2 Bedroom Apartment. It is housed in a Restored Shophouse. The Interiors of the Apartment is very reminiscent of Houses in the Philippines in the olden days. The Bathroom is HUGE. Open air as only slatted wood covers the upper portion of the Bathroom. The Main bedroom had a Large TV, DVD, Mini Ref, Utensils, Coffee/Tea Pot. While the smaller bed just had a Single bed. Both rooms are air-conditioned. Everything was charming about the place. I really loved it.
Though their price maybe a bit on the high end, it was worth it. Their location is just perfect, right smack in the center of Georgetown. The Price of the Residence does not include Breakfast but there are so many Food Places near and priced are very affordable.
