Sit­u­ated in the heart of his­toric Ge­orge Town, Pe­nang, 23LOVE­LANE HO­TEL is an oasis amidst the hus­tle and bus­tle of this UNESCO World Her­itage city. A blend of vin­tage and mod­ern, this 150-year-old build­ing was lov­ingly re­stored within strict UNESCO guide­lines yet stylishly equipped with all the con­ve­niences of a mod­ern ho­tel. The ho­tel was for­merly a pri­vate res­i­dence and is the only stand-alone build­ing on this row of shop­houses. Gated, se­cured, with its own land­scaped gar­dens, and fea­tur­ing the only co­conut tree in the city, 23LOVE­LANE HO­TEL stands out amongst the crowds.

The main build­ing con­sists of 10 suites while an­other 4 suites are sit­u­ated in pre-war shop­houses within walk­ing dis­tance. The in­te­rior con­cept was clev­erly tai­lored to fea­ture clas­sic fur­ni­ture and pe­riod an­tiques whilst jux­ta­pos­ing it with con­tem­po­rary art­work, sourced mainly from South East Asia and the sur­round­ing re­gion. Provoca­tive, ex­otic sculp­tures and crafts dot the ho­tel, much to the delight of art afi­ciona­dos.

Good news for the book­worms, there is a li­brary on the first floor which stocks all gen­res of books and board games. Hang out, re­lax, read, play games or browse the in­ter­net, treat the li­brary as your own man/woman cave. WiFi is avail­able through­out the build­ing.

When hunger strikes, head to SteakFrites@23. The ad­ja­cent restau­rant serves the finest steak in town with its own spe­cial mag­i­cal sauce, and is avail­able to the pub­lic nightly on week­days and also for lunch on week­ends. This charm­ing restau­rant with a long bar is the breakfast place for our in-house guests.

Hav­ing won nu­mer­ous awards in its five-year his­tory, 23LOVE­LANE HO­TEL con­tin­u­ously strives to raise our stan­dards, im­prove qual­ity of our ser­vices and en­sure guests have a com­fort­able and re­lax­ing stay.
