Just had a fantastic stay at 23 Love Lane! It is located among backpackers' hostels, lending the area a bit of edginess in the sedating penang heat. The busy-ness of Georgetown was left behind once we walked through the gates. We stayed in the Straits Eclectic room, which was very comfortable and felt very private even though it is located near the main lobby area.
The communal area is well-maintained and it’s very peaceful to just sit and enjoy the day in the beautiful garden. The best part of it is, there is free afternoon tea (local delights!) served around 4pm. We even got to taste the famous teochew cendol without having to queue for it!!! If you love your food, the hotel is also within walking distance of very good wanton noodles (opens from 8pm onwards) at Lebuh Chulia, near Lebuh Carnarvon. Also try the roast chicken rice at Kedai Kopi Thew Chik Café along Lebuh Chulia for lunch. Line Clear Nasi Kandar and claypot Briyani at Kapitan are also a skip away from the hotel.
Service was also amazing as many other reviewers have mentioned. Its service with sincerity, which really set this place apart from other hotels we have stayed at. I must really commend Mr Fauzi and Mr Nelson for making our stay so comfortable. We felt right at home. Staff at the restaurant was also very kind and helpful. We came back to the hotel one night with takeaway food and drinks and they provided us with plates and cutlery. However, there were times when other staff was not quite sure when we asked about prices of taxi rides etc. One minor thing that can be improved is the central controller in our room for the lights/fans. It doesn’t work very well all the time and given the generous size of the room, i had to run around quite abit to off the lights.
We highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again!
