George Town, West Coast, Malaysia

At a Glance

  • Get lost in the enigmatic winding streets of George Town, a World Heritage Site; temples leap from hidden corners, street food hawkers waft their tantalising wares and the vibrant colours dazzle from all angles.

  • Recline in the dappled shade and tranquil refuge of 23LoveLane’s lush courtyard garden as butterflies flutter through the leaves and the hustle of the outside world fades away.

  • Feast on mouth-watering aged steaks, the best in town, in colourful eclectic antique style at SteakFrites@23 which used to be a shop before World War 2.

  • The buzz of George Town drifts on the tropical breeze while you sip on ice cold cocktails on the welcoming Chinese Indian Terrace, a delightful refuge before venturing into George Town to sample the local cuisine.

Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Malaysia’s west coast boasts a warm tropical climate, with high temperatures and humidity throughout the year. The driest months are from December to March, particularly good times to enjoy the islands of Penang, Langkawi or Pangkor when the sun is shining and there is only occasionally rainfall. The rains arrive in April and last until October, with thunderstorms typically occurring in the afternoon. However, these are usually brief and can offer a welcome relief from the humidity during the hotter months.

23LoveLane is a boutique heritage hotel in the heart of George Town. Comprised of just ten rooms decorated in a combination of Malay, Indian and Chinese styles, it provides a cosy and charming base for exploring the cosmopolitan city of George Town.

With parts of the property constructed as early as the 1800s, 23LoveLane seamlessly blends five different architectural styles to create a property brimming with character in the heart of Penang’s capital. Each of 23LoveLane’s ten rooms are individually designed, combining antique and modern retro styles. All feature comfortable furnishings and modern necessities in neutral tones interspersed with splashes of colour.

23LoveLane has a couple of options when it comes to dining, with a Lobby Bar and Library Lounge perfect for enjoying some light snacks and a drink, whilst the SteakFrites@23 restaurant serves fantastic steak within a pre-war shop house just next to the main building.

A small hotel with limited facilities, 23LoveLane is particularly suited for those who plan to spend the days exploring the cultural and historic delights of George Town, with the core of the George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site just a stone’s throw away.
