Very conveniently located and within walking distance to most attractions including the famous Jonker Street. The hotel staffs, from doorman to housekeeping and front office are very efficient, polite and always having the willingness to help. Rooms are very clean and amenities provided are everything you need to have for a comfortable stay. I gave a 4 Star review because... More

This hotel is located very close to Malacca's finest attraction so you can just walk from your hotel to reach these places. But what impresses me the most is the hotel staff. They're very friendly, I've got a very warm reception right from outside the entrance until after we reach to the car after checking out.

The Sterling is not in the remotest sense, a boutique hotel. Maintenance in the rooms appears no existent with leaking plumbing, a non functioning and yellowing "spa bath" that has not even had remnants of plastic covering removed from when it was installed years ago. There are zero amenities with no bar (and no drinks in the mini bar), no... More

This hotel has everything that you would like to have in a hotel of this standard. Hospitable and helpful staff. Very clean and huge rooms with all amenities. Location is very good and you just walk into restaurants and centre of the city. Nice smell everywhere including corridors. Please keep an arrow indicating direction of Mecca for your Muslim guests.... More

Stayed at room 115 (Leyton) with 1 double bed for 2 nights in the first week of August 2015. Had a good sleep as it was quiet, away from heavy traffic and clean. Room security was ok as well, you need to swipe your hotel card at the elevator to go to any of the rooms. The hotel looks new... More

Located in a quiet street full of shophouses where most seem never to open. 10-15 mins walk to jonker street. Personally don't like the location as I find it quite a walk from jonker street, road back to hotel at night is quite deserted. Hotel looks grand from the outside, room is spacious, and all basic necessities were provided. Shower... More

Hotel looks great from the outside - an old colonial building. Impressive large foyer with helpful staff. Very large bedrooms. Modern facilities, TV, Sofa, large comfortable bed. Bathroom has a jacuzzi which just means I have to climb into it to take a shower....but the walls are tired, just paint which wrinkles by the door, no pictures and a large... More

Melaka - a great destination for all to visit. Heritage sights and sound, with the buzzing city lifestyle. The Sterling Boutique hotel, located stone throw away from the Heritage town, buzzing good food areas and the night market. If you are driving up, you can avoid getting stuck in the heavy traffic situation by entering from the opposite side of... More

Hotel in little India district but literally 5 minutes walk to the center of old Melaka and all the attractions and museums including of course the not to be missed night market on Jonker Street at weekends. Hotel has Colonial feel but is actually a 3 year old hotel built in the colonial style. Room fine with good bathroom with... More
