What differentiates The Sterling Boutique Hotel from other hotels in the Melaka area is perhaps the Jacuzzi in the room, which persuaded me to pay slightly more for the Riley room during the Hari Raya holiday weekend. On my first night, I realized that the water pressure for the Jacuzzi tub was so low that it is easier to take... More

I visited this hotel with my family and was very happy that I chose this as there were others that offered similar rates. The Sterling is very nice to look at and proved to be a very nice stay, we liked the colonial style of the building and the staff were very nice. The greeting at the entrance when we... More

We stayed in the Riley room. Very spacious! Huge bed, a small "walk in wardrobe", a sofa and the toilet had a big jacuzzi! We used this every day. It did take a while to fill up due to it's size but not much of a problem. Decor is a relaxing dark brown theme. Breakfast is served buffet style on... More

The hotel has a colonial elegance to it, and a touch of French styling. We stayed in the Leyton room and it wasn't large, but certainly enough for my husband and I. It's luxury at an extremely reasonable price, and wonderfully located. Strolling distance to the central square in town, the river and Jonker Walk - but tucked far enough... More

The facade gives a strong colonial feel, but it is like the master has moved away long long ago. Rooms are very small and toilet clamped and dirty. For the price paid: over priced. But location wise is superb as its within walking distance to Jonker street.

First time at this hotel and will surely come back again. As the room was not ready when we arrived about noon, we were offered an upgrade to the Riley room which has a jacuzzi so we need not wait ! Great service. Cliss and Asri were great.

Perfect. Excellent customer service, staff quick to assist, very proactive, went the extra mile e.g. Providing us some glasses of water while waiting to catch our coach. Breakfast waiter excellent also, ensured our needs were met and demonstrated good interpersonal skills. 5 star really. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

The Sterling was in an excellent location. Though not as near as Casa Del Rio to Jonker Street, it was within walking distance, and getting there was pretty easy. We understand that it is a relatively new hotel, but there's an old world charm about the place. Staff were friendly and helpful, and rooms were comfortable. We stayed in the... More

As I had requested for early check in, the room was ready as promised. The guy explained everything in detailed and the staff was quick on their feet to come and help us... More

Very happy with our stay. First time staying in this hotel, only minus point is the lack of amenities. But the good service and friendly staff made up for it. Rooms were clean, bed very comfortable , clean toilet, fantastic shower! It's not a very big hotel so the buffet breakfast variety was not a lot but it's enough for... More
