We loved every moment we stayed here. The environment is delightful, the staff welcoming, the rooms delightful. You feel you are a guest in someone's home where each element has been chosen with care but stool it's home not a sterile art gallery. Afternoon tea was fab and breakfast terrific. Smashing! I'll be back!

I do not submit reviews like this lightly and am doing so because I sent an email outlining my concerns to 23 Love Lane and management did not even have the courtesy to respond. My husband and I booked two nights in the Straits Eclectic room. Upon arrival we were shown to the Garden Room without any explanation as to... More

Room...We stayed here as it was advertised as peaceful; however, on the first night we could not get to sleep as there was extremely loud building work taking place just outside the hotel. When I...

As captioned, our previously paid and booked duplex Indian Shophouse with private sitting rooms and outdoor verandah sitting bench area facing the gorgeous courtyard garden was suddenly changed to 2 rooms (with no sitting area) next to the commonly accessible library. The manager explained it was because of the construction to be conducted from 11pm to 8am so the noise... More

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
