    Our secret honeymoon getaway”

    It's hard not to come to Georgetown and scurry around to all the tourist spots or make a beeline for all the exquisite food the city has to offer. Being regular visitors to Georgetown, we had our favourite haunts in mind for our stay. However upon checking in to 23 Lovelane, we had to scuttle our plans because we were taken in by the beauty and exotic charm of 23 Lovelane. As funny as it may sound, we had our most unforgettable time in Georgetown, by just spending most of our time nestled in the hotel and going nowhere. Such was the appeal of the establishment. We occupied the Anglo Indian suite, a spacious room facing the front of the house overlooking the main courtyard and gateway, for 2 nights. We love our room and felt like it was our own. The bed is set right in the middle of room, as Agnes Keith would put it, like an island. On each side of the room, wooden louvre windows open up to the view of the courtyard and garden paths at the sides of the house. Housekeeping was exceptional and tended to our room in the morning and evening before sunset. The Hotel is situated at the end of a busy tourist streets in the city but all the hustle and bustle of the street evaporates once you step into the courtyard through the ornate gateway. The courtyard and garden are lush, tranquil and well maintained. The establishment itself boast several large living spaces with beautiful furniture and fixtures and a mini bar tucked in at the side of the reception area. The ornaments and art have also been picked with care to reflect the different colour pallets of each living area. There is also a large living room on the upper floor leading to our suite for the enjoyment of hotel guests. There are only about 7 rooms in the Hotel and ample living areas so there was plenty of space to relax and stretch our legs without feeling like we were living in a crowded establishment. Our room came with breakfast and tea. Portion is very generous.The kitchen and dining area is situated nex

    Comfortable and Enjoyable”

    Space, Attentive Staff and Proximity to Local Attractions and F&Bs

    We had a total of 5 adults, 3 children and 1 infant, and wanted a hotel with huge rooms/space so that our young children can play together while the adults can bond over titbits and beer. The Muntri Suite fits our bill. When we reached the Muntri Suite, a pre-war shophouse, 3 mins away from main building, the nostalgic settings of the suite, blew us away! At ground level, there was 2 huge sets of sofas, 2 square outdoor alfresco area, within indoors, a huge kitchette stocked with utensils. Complimentary mineral water and coke were replenished daily. There were 3 bedrooms at level 2, each has a designated bathroom. The rooms located at extreme left and right end of the shophouse were separated by another living room. One minus point was that our kids were quite badly bitten by the mozzies although electrical insect repellents were made available at every rooms. The hotel staff were very service oriented and went all out to ensure we were well taken care of. Housekeeping team deserves special mentions too. When we returned from our sightseeing, rooms are nicely made, and the bathroom's aroma candles and aroma burner were already burning, giving the bathroom a nice smell and warm tiles to step on. There were even goodnight tags placed nicely on our beds! Daily breakfast and tea breaks are superb too! It was not buffet-style breakfast, but the staff were so nice to allow us multiple orders even thou they had mentioned that its supposed to be one serving per guest. Love Lane is pretty much a centralised area within Georgetown. Many areas are within walking distance e.g Red Garden (alfresco hawker centre), Purrfect Café (Cat café, Camera Museum all just 5 mins away. The Clan Jetties, 3D Interactive Museum, 1st Avenue, Chinatown and Little India were just about 20mins walk. Overall, we definitely enjoyed ourselves and our experience at 23 Lovelane Penang.

    A Classic Beauty”

    Location, Breakfast, Ammenities

    23 Lovelane Penang Hotel is most conveniently situated in heart of Penang Island. It is right next to Chulia Street where a good number of hawkers appear during the evening to sell their exceptionally good local delights. Another 5 minute walk from there will land you at Penang Road - an area that is also bustling with the night life. Besides the excellent location, this hotel's interior is a real unique beauty. One can really enjoy the experience of living in an atmosphere of a historical era of Penang. The highlight of breakfast served was this hotel's very own unique toast bread (recommend to eat it with a sweet-like paste called Kaya), and Nasi Lemak. The hotel's staffs are also very friendly and quick to respond. Bathroom is very spacious and beautifully done up. Plus, you won't find many hotels that offer Crabtree & Evelyn bathroom amenities. Well, this is one of them !

    this place is fantastic! the staff is extremely friendly and the breakfast is great! everyone who works there just wants you to be happy and it really reflects in all guests staying there. if i had to say one negative thing about this place it would be the internet. the internet was bad in our room and it was tough to call my family using skype. but to be honest, i loved penang so much i was happy the internet didn't work so we could spend more time outside. regarding the location, we took a scooter and drove all over penang and i was sooo happy we stayed in 23 lovelane. it's in the best location with the best people and food around. highly recommend! before we left i heard that lovelane can be dodgy because it's the backpacking area, but 23 lovelane does such a good job of making you feel safe it was great and all these new young stores are opening up around it. we also stayed in the room closest to the street and it didn't feel loud at all. great place. a must if you're visiting penang.

One of the hotel staff "UNCLE KI" had given us tremendous assistance during our stay at the hotel. His service along with other staff is beyond a 5-star rated hotel. It has been a week since I left the hotel and I have been thinking about her all the time :) Thanks 23 Lovelane for giving us such a memorable experience. We wish to come back soon.

    the hotel itself is a heritage of penang.it used to be a beautiful house a chinese family. now it still gives you the warm sense of a family. when i checked out the next day to the ferry, i left my jacket in the wardrobe of the room. but what made me unbeliveable was the jacket flew back to my side. i turned around my head, seeing fauze, the waiter of the hotel,standing behind me in the waiting hall of the ferry, with sweat all on his head. i can't express my movement and deeply impressed by the warmth of penang and the lovely hotel, 23 lovelane penang hotel. next time, if i have a chance to visit penang again, i'd like to live in the hotel again. p.s. give my best wishes to fauze.

    Three of my girlfriends and I departed from KL to Penang for a night stay at this hotel. When we arrived we were welcomed by friendly staff who helped with our check in. While we were waiting for the check in we were giving a welcome drink which I'm not sure what is made from but it sure was delicious and we were asked to help ourselves to the afternoon tea that they provide for guest daily.Upon checking in we were very impressed with the room. As city girls we were so used to staying in high rise hotels and staying in this shophouse converted hotel was indeed a very nice change. The room was very well renovated and the upkeep was excellence and they even provide Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries.It was a great experience at 23 Lovelane and would definitely recommend to everyone who might be visiting Penang.

The hotel is a lovely heritage building very nicely furnished and the room is spacious, with all the amenities you would expect. The included breakfast is abundant and includes both local and international dishes; the hotel is centrally located in one of the most popular areas of Georgetown, yet it feels quiet and private. I would definitely recommend this place for a couple looking for a romantic and luxurious getaway in Penang.

    we stayed for only one night with toddler and elderly, and i am so pleased that we have chosen 23lovelane. it was not a super peak time in penang, but a few hotels including lovelane were fully booked and penang was crowded. but we had lots of space and peaceful time in lovelane. the restaurant was not ready, so we had a simple breakfast prepared in the courtyard. but we are looking forward to our next stay. the hotel does not have private parking, but there are parking space along the roads and lanes, and parking is free on sunday. if lovelane can look into this matter for local travellers, it would be a plus.

    Well worth the trip to 23 Lovelane Hotel! The hotel is situated within reach of the old part of Georgetown. Rooms and common areas are nicely decorated contributing to the hotel charm. Our room was closest to the street and in the morning you could hear the noise from the street. It is not a busy street, but not the most quiet place in the morning.
