The two-storey building faces Love Lane to the west. Surrounded by a compound, the structure is believed to have been erected after 1877, according to studies done on a survey map of that period. 23 Love Lane is entered through a Chinese gate that is believed to have been built before 1891, as it appears on the Kelly's Survey map of 1891-96.

In 2007, 23 Love Lane was purchased by its present owner who also bought four Straits Eclectic shophouses facing Stewart Lane. At that time, the property was in a state of disrepair. The buildings underwent restoration from 2009 until 2011, and opened as a boutique hotel establishment at the end of 2011.
