The receptionists are very rude. When we reached there, 3 of them were sitting down and minding their own bussinesses, did not bother to greet us and all had their moody face on, especially the ones named Kulan and Ifa. We even asked to check in and had to wait for someone else to come. We decided to pay using... More

I never stay this hotel. But I will need to give a big big compliment to the staff over this hotel, especially Ms. Kulam. I was booking this hotel on behalf of my friend. Her parents and friends were about visiting Melaka for 4 nights. They are O.K.U (deaf-mute) group of people. Ms. Kulam took a good care of them... More

The hotel is perfectly situated in Melaka with only 10 minutes walk down the river to get to Chinatown or Jonker walk in Melaka. The price is very low, so they delivered exactly what was expected however the aircon in the room was very noisy and not very efficient. And I had no warm water when i was taking a... More

When we arrived we were checked-in to our room in less than 10 minutes. Room was okay. Bed sheets were dirty. Breakfast was good; their fruits were nice but if you're not fond of Malaysian cuisine then you can suffice on omelette and bread w/ jam, butter. Staff was helpful. Location was good.

Hotel is right in the middle of the town. The room was large and good with basic facilities, good breakfast and friendly staff. I got the room facing the Melaka River and viewed at the famous Melaka River Cruise boat passing by. Good for budget traveler and probably the best option to stay in its category. I hope the satellite... More

First, the check in was smooth, then were... More

the rates were 99 MYR without breakfast and tht was a good deal as this is definately more tha 3* and nearly a 4* property...not far from the city centre, it is worth staying...and it is right on the banks of the river so good option to stroll around..would recommend this place fr budget travellers

I would actually rate this hotel between Poor and Average. This is a hotel without additional facilities - no swimming pool, no gym. There are plenty of meeting rooms on the 2nd floor, a coffee house/restaurant and a karaoke place on the Ground floor. Generally the hotel is kept quite clean. Some signs of refurbishment, but poorly done renovation -... More
