Cintra Heritage House

An affordable heritage hotel

What we say: 4 stars

Opened in July 2012, and formed out of four linked shophouses that date back to the late 19th century, Cintra Heritage House offers a heritage-style lodging at a more affordable price than many others in the city. We're not sure the shiny stickers on the floor to warn guests about changes in floor height are heritage listed, but we liked this place. Rooms are well sized and come in standard, superior and family-sized flavours, all with private (and very clean) bathroom, firm beds and good bedding. We preferred the furnishing in the twin room rather than a double, so perhaps grab that and ask them to push the beds together. Rooms are well sized and distributed across both floors of the property (no shoes upstairs). The streetside rooms do catch some traffic noise, but they're light and very airy, while the rear rooms are darker and while safer from the traffic cop more sound from the nearby mosque. There's a small dowstairs cafe and all rooms include free WiFi and breakfast. Staff are very obliging and eager for custom -- we recommend you help them out.
