Pros Had a nice and comfortable stay in this hotel, surprisingly had a really big room with low price. Very friendly customer service, their free WiFi is super fast. Location nearby the waterfront which has McD, Starbucks and etc, a little bit far from the beach, takes around 15 min drive. Cons Bad sound proof, small bathroom.

We stayed in PD for one night, the Merlin Hotel were very good. We had no problems. A good sized, clean room with great shower and everything you would expect from a well run hotel. We left our luggage with them for 3 hours with no problems. A good example of how budget to mid range hotels can be a... More

It was Labour Day holiday and all other hotels were fully booked. We didn't need a hotel by the beach and we were only staying one night. The only room left was a family room that sleeps 4. There were only two of us but we took it anyway. Although hotel is relatively new, there are signs of wear and... More

We went here only to get a nights sleep enroute to Melaka. The booking was a bot strange, just a phone call and a whatsapp message. The staff was good and caring. The room very basic, but for the price, it was accepteable A bit too noisy in the rooms

The hotel is fairly new so cleaniness is ok. Room size is big but furniture is too bare. Beside the beds, only a desk, a chair, bedside table n tv. It is a big walkway from the door towards the bed, i dun understand why can't the hotel put another table or cabinet there as we dun have sufficient place... More

In my earlier review, I complained about noise. In my second stay I found less noise and I also noticed staffs were more friendly and responsive. I liked their courteous approach. Check in check out was fast. like before, I directly contact with the management for booking instead of using booking sites. I got discount and special attention as repeat... More

My stay at the Merlin was trouble free the staff were friendly the hotel was clean and the beds comfortable. It was situated within a short walk of a 7/11 however if you have no transport it was not that close to the town and other attractions. Taxis will take you at 15 Rm to most places nearby. The room...

Quite a strategic location. Easily access to those who drove with cars to the PD Waterfront (for foods), and towards Pantai Bagan Pinang/Pantai Teluk Kemang. Friendly and helpful staff. The tables they sort outside the entrance is quite a good spot for smokers to relax.

Booked for a night's stay with wife and kid. Took the better room with a twin queen size bed for better comfort. Cost me RM190 for the night. When arrived, it wasn't too hard of a place to find. The outlook was pretty neat and the entrance comfortably designed to our eyes. Reception was pretty helpful and efficient to get... More
