“Great low budget place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2006

I stayed at the Love Lane Inn during August, 2005. I had lengthly chats with Jimmy, whom was a very nice guy. Amy was also great to talk with, both had many stories to talk about.

The price was great value, I got a double room for RM 22 which is a real bargain. Late check in wasn't a problem, so I could wander the streets and bars at night as I wished.

The rooms were spacious and quiet, with locks on the doors. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a well priced budget accommodation that is near to the main food and shopping areas in George Town. Love Lane Inn also offered bus tickets all around Msia and Thailand, as well as tours around the island.

The only problems I observed were a few picky, grumpy travellers which unsettled me a bit - but I guess you just have to learn to live with those kind of people because they are there anywhere you go in budget accommodations.

Overall, an excellent experience! I will be coming back to see Jim in March, 2007!

  • Liked — The spacious rooms with lockable doors.
  • Disliked — The showers
  • Tips/Secrets — Talk to the staff about the various rooms and pricing, some of the better rooms cost just a few RM more than the cheapest rooms.

Love Lane Inn is in a great Location in Georgetown where you are near both Chinatown and Little India. Trips to Penang Hill and places such as the snake farm are easy and enjoyable. However, although Love Lane Inn itself had a friendly atmosphere and many travellers to mix with, we encountered a few technical hitches. The main one was that bed bugs were a major problem. There were a number of people who, after having slept i the beds came out with terrible bed bugs all over their body, which were incredibly itchy. A couple of people have had to go to the doctors to get medication to sort the bites out. After this problem we found one member of staff quite rude and extremely unhelpful. After saying thankyou to her on the day we left she said "No thankyou to you. I don't like you." Simply beacuse we had not bought bus tickets from her. So, in conclusion although the saty was fairly enjoyable, there were definite problems and I would not go there again or recommend going there to anyone else Im afraid.
