It's so comfy and peaceful from the moment we get into the gate.The rooms were spacious, the bathroom was large and clean. The staffs are all so friendly. Really enjoyed our stay here even just one night. Will come back for sure.

We loved our weekend stay at 23 Lovelane. The service was flawless and friendly. The rooms were quite large and the courtyard and attention to detail was just lovely. Nice bathroom and toiletries... only complain are the mosquitos, as it is rather humid and leafy, I got bitten on day one, but learned my lesson quickly and bought some mosquito... More

The customer service at 23 Love Lane was quite simply exceptional! From the moment we arrived we were greeted with genuine smiles and assistance from all the staff on the front door/front desk who really set the standard of customer service very high. This level of service was maintained throughout our three night stay and combined with the charming colonial... More

There is nothing I can fault about this beautiful hotel in my favourite city in Asia! It is set a bit further back from the street, so nice and quiet in an old colonial building. The rooms were immaculate and the design and artwork of the whole hotel was incredible. Breakfast was an absolute feast, there is so much on... More

Absolutely lovely hotel. The staff are just so friendly and accommodating. There were 5 of us and we stayed at the Indian Shoplot. It was clean and comfortable. Really nice art and deco and so spacious. Complimentary tea and breakfast was good too. The atmosphere and surroundings just takes you back to the colonial days. Good for hanging out with... More

we stayed in the stewart suite, and loved everything about it. The suite is actually a restored 2 storey shophouse just around the corner from the main hotel, and it was fantastic for our family of 5 adults and 1 child - it came with 2 king beds and an opium bed, a jacuzzi, a large hall, 2 TVs and...

What keeps me excited about Georgetown, the UNESCO world heritage site on Penang Island, is its old-world charm combined with a flurry of new tourist ventures, while still being a very real little town where people eat, pray and sleep. The location of this charming little boutique hotel let's travellers easily access the narrow streets of Georgetown. At the same... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here over Valentine's Day weekend and the hotel really impressed us with the aesthetic attention to detail. The courtyard and common areas are gorgeous, as is the library on the first floor and the location is perfect, right in the heart of old town. They also had complimentary afternoon tea which is a fantastic break... More

Our pleasant stay in 2013 brought my family and I back to 23 Love Lane recently. Again, we chose the Indian Shophouse as the size and configuration (it is a duplex) is a perfect match to our family (2 little kids, 2 adult kids) with ample space for everyone. The little kids enjoyed the beautifully landscaped garden. We were really... More
