I stayed here from 3rd-7th Nov 2014. I booked the Windsor room as I was travelling with my family of four including my 8mths old baby. I had a nice surprise when I entered the room because they had beautifully decorated it for my birthday and there is also a nice slice of cake for me and my family. There... More

Welcoming staff were friendly and polite. Thumbs up for the front desk for this. Has its own private parking. The room was average and showed signs of deterioration in some part of the wall paper and no robes were present in the room. No swimming pool available and this limits family activities at the hotel. The Loft Cafe had only... More

The good stuff: Great location, not far from jonker street, modern concept which was maintained well, ample parking, great service - brisk, attentive, warm. So if your criteria are these, then by all means book this place. Now to the bad part: for the price however, you would expect facilities - still no gym, restaurant only operate breakfast nowadays, no... More

Had not been to Malacca in like 8 years. Its well worth the visit. Whoever is running the council is doing a very good job, the area around the river has been gentrified nicely. All the hotels were busy and we picked The Sterling as it looked a tad colonial ( sure that was the point ) where as Holiday... More

We had chosen The Sterling based on our friends' recommendations. We booked a Riley for two nights' stay, but the room was not available due to a slip-up. Nonetheless, the staff were really helpful and within a day, they got back with an alternative arrangement for a Leyton on the first night and a Riley on the second night. Kudos... More

The Sterling is very nice, within easy reach of all Malacca's attractions. The rooms were clean and quiet. With both of us being quite tall - the other half 6ft, the beds were on the short side. The concierge was extremely helpful with information on sights, restaurants and offering up all information needed for our stay. The only downside I... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Sterling Hotel. It has probably been the last available room in town that day because of a Malaysian holiday but all the more we were happy that we found this gorgeous Boutique hotel. The service was brilliant and so welcoming. The room we got was huge and nicely designed. The interior was in... More

We booked one room last minute. And the hotel staff are very nice and helpful. We stayed in the room with jacuzzi, and the room is very spacious, and because all room not facing the street the room is very quite. We had a very sound sleep after the full day tour. Definitely will stay in this hotel again when... More
