An utterly charming hotel, beautifully and lovingly decorated with a very calming and tranquil atmosphere. The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming. There were lovely communal areas including a stunning central courtyard. We stayed in the 'Indian shop house' which was delightful! It also had its own private patio - perfect for relaxing! We would not hesitate to return!

We visited Penang and booked a stay at 23 Love Lane. The hotel itself is beautiful and decorated with period pieces. Breakfast is included and is served from 7-10 am next door and consists of local and western fare. Tea time is everyday at 4:00 pm, where local snacks and tea are available in the garden. The hotel itself is... More

Tea time is top notch served within the private garden with local snacks and premium tea. Breakfast is equivalent wonderfully served... More

Really liked the place I stayed . I usually prefer beach side stay. But penang being a historical city I thought I can stay inside the city. And choose 23 love lane. My room was neat and clean . Quite and peaceful. We had a big hall as well. I would say love lane has used the place very well.... More

A group of friends stayed for one night and loved the atmosphere and restored grandeur of this lovely old building. We were made very welcome, though the check in procedure was rather long and tedious! Afternoon tea with teas, coffee and pretty local cakes and a breakfast of anything from the extensive cafe breakfast menu added value to the experience.... More

We are normally budget hotel stayers but decided to splash out on some luxury with our stay. We stayed in the Jack Roof Anex suite and loved the deco. The room was turned up every night and we bedding was good - infact the pillows in particular we loved! Mid afternoon they have afternoon tea served and we really enjoyed... More

The hotel itself is really adorable, located on a less crowded side of Love Lane which is quiet and tranquil. But it still just a few steps to the bustle and hustle so you don't feel isolated. I love the courtyard and everything here, very nice design - pleasing to my eyes. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I... More

A lovely name which suits this gorgeous hotel. The rooms are enormous, beautifully agenced and decorated with sumptious bathrooms. Everything one could want for a comfortable and delightful stay. Our two rooms gave on to a semi-private sitting area destined for guests of the two rooms we occupied. The hotel has been lovingly restructured to make it open-plan and airy... More
