What makes Penang one of the popular destinations in Southeast Asia is the winning combination of history, culture and culinary choices. Visitors have a varied selection of accommodation choices but for a truly memorable holiday, staying within the UNESCO heritage zones is a must.
23Lovelane is ideally located in the centre of George Town within the heritage zone and has been gracefully restored with the expertise of a renowned conservationist. Attention to detail and respect for the building’s past and nuances were at the forefront during the restoration. The result is a fascinating amalgamation of architectural periods from Straits Eclectic to the 1920s and PRE-WWII.
Rooms are decorated according to unique themes with beautiful antiques and furnishings. If you’re travelling as a group, the charming Muntri Suites is a three-bedroom pre-war shophouse with a kitchen and living room. Dine at the hotel’s restaurant, Steakfrites@23, which offers the best medium rare steak in town with fries – just like how the French do it. 23 Love Lane, George Town, Penang Tel: 04-262 1323
