We stayed in the shop house bungalow with our three children and we all loved it. The intimacy of the small garden was a perfect place to relax with afternoon tea, (my son asked "can we just live here?"). The attention to detail in the restoration, including period furniture, works of art with modern flair reflecting the local scene, was... More

We booked 2 rooms in the Straits building. The rooms were large, beautifully appointed, and comfortable. The staff was warm, welcoming and helpful. The artwork throughout the facility was reflective of the focus on art throughout George Town. We enjoyed tea time every day and the included breakfast was very good. The location of the hotel was right on the... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Part of our group was in a small independent house in a quiet street, very nicely decorated and well equiped (extra: with a jacuzzi that could have been a bit warmer....). We were in a bedroom in the main building, high ceiling, huge bathroom, simple but nice decoration. No view and a... More

This the 3rd stay in 23 lovelane. It's become our home in Penang. Clean, excellent service and convenient. We stay in the indian shophouse everytime. It's perfect for families. The bathrooms are spacious and they provide high quality toiletries like Korres. Tea as well as breakfast is included. Their welcoming ginger drink is very refreshing too. It's very hard to... More

I've just got home from a wonderful two night stay at the property. There were two of us (my friend and I) so we decided to have one room each to ourselves. Booking process was swift and the owner's representative (sister) was helpful to refer us to the front office manager. I was assigned the grand bedroom in the Anglo... More

In 1981, I moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and stayed for two months at the Majestic Hotel, which is located across the street from the old railway station and next to the National Mosque. The hotel was built during the British colonial period with high ceilings and an abundance of ceiling fans. It looked like the type of hotel that... More

Stayed for two nights in eclectic room 4 upstairs. Thkis room is really peaceful and quiet. Huge bed and pillows were comfortable with turn down service at night. Candles were lit in the room and an aromatherapy burner, probably for the mozies, but made the room feel cosy and welcoming after a day checking out George Town. Bathroom was really... More

I was there recently for a one night trip for the DC Justice League Run 2015 and it was a great stay. The friendly and helpful staff helped coordinate my airport transfers with ease and the tea time session provided had a nice, welcoming touch to it- delicious cucur!

We stayed at 23 Love Lane Hotels in Penang some time in June 2015 and it was nothing but blissful. The room that we got was the Anglo Indian Garden and it was perfect for us. Do give their website a look over and you know what I mean. The hotel is very central and perfect getting around George Town.... More

We are still here and all I can say about this place is that everything was perfect. The position is top, well located and surrounded by street art. We had an unexpected upgrade to a huge apartment you can loose yourself in. Breakfast is super good, not a big continental buffet, but a homemade delicious choice of salty and sweet... More
