Bad-Do not stay in room 714 as bathtub is clogged up even when hotel technician already serviced it. Water is brownish in colour so its best prepared to bring your own mineral water if you need to boil coffee. Room keys need to be return to front desk when going out which can be troublesome. Keycards for certain rooms are... More

I don't understand how this hotel featured in a Top 10 list of hotels in Malacca. When I checked into my room, the room was unmade. Had to switch to another room. First impression? The corridor leading to my room was littered with dirty laundry sheets. My room was ok, for the money I paid. But I've been in better... More

The last time we were here, it was under the Best Western chain, but now it seems it is under a new management. We booked through an online agent where we managed to get quite a good deal, plus seeing that the time we booked almost all the hotels around town were fully booked. Noticed the new name (minus Best... More

Stayed here couple of times and the location is ideal as it's within a km from all eateries and just next to Melaka River. Friendly staff and definitely value for money. Go for the higher floor to enjoy the view.

I stayed at this room whereby the aircon needed to wait for like 10 minutes to operate and also it makes lots of noise when it operates , moreover... More

Pros: Good, strong, fast wifi signal. Friendly staffs. Cons: 1. The rooms- We we're given room 711 (deluxe room) at superior rate bcos of some misunderstanding during check-in. Were so unhappy - aircond problem, cracked toilet tank cover, moldy glass bathtub divider, water heater not functioning, tv channel is under maintenance. Asked for a room change. Thanks to Mr. Aminuddin... More

I spent my vacation time with my best friends in Melaca for 3 days. We took Wana Hotel because its located beside Melaca river as the main subject of our vacation, and the other thing is we can just take a walk to some destination. To summerize it all..Wana Hotel is the best because its strategic location. The hotel's facilities... More
