Penang, Malaysia

The buildings within the walls of 23LoveLane Hotel were constructed at different times beginning from the 1800s, representing five different architectural periods.

The 10 room hotel is situated in the heart of George Town and was originally a private residence owned by a European and later by a local family. Along the way, it became the Oasis Hotel, until it was bought by the present owner in 2007. A renowned conservationist joined the team of architects and consultants and lovingly brought the buildings back to life in a three year project. 23LoveLane Hotel opened for business in December 2011.

We have since added Muntri Suites, a 3 room pre-war shop house a few minutes’ walk from the main building, and another stand alone heritage unit named Stewart Suite just around the corner. To serve our guests better, we opened SteakFrites@23 Restaurant adjacent to the hotel.
