George Town Street View: 23 Love Lane

A renovated and refurbished pre-war heritage mansion located in Love Lane that had been converted to a cosy little boutique hotel, which is also popular with tourists these days. The mansion itself is apparently unique for its 5 architectural periods, that are reflected by the Anglo Indian Bungalow, Indian Chinese Terrace, Straits Eclectic Building, 1920’s Jack Roof Annex Block and the Indian Shophouses.

The hotel’s website can be located here: www.23lovelane.com.

There are several stories about how Love Lane got its name. The more common one was in the old days, wealthy Chinese businessmen who lived at the nearby Muntri Street had apparently kept their mistresses at the townhouses along Love Lane.

Now, the street is usually popular with tourists from various parts of the world due to many budget (and boutique) hotels and pubs nearby.
