Beware.... They have room without window..stain on bedsheet.. stain on carpet.. no bath mat given... Air cond control no functioning... If I m in melaka again, this is the hotel to be avoided.. I can hear the voice from the other room. The seminar room is weirdly organized..

The stay was great... however we were disappointed with the service especially at the front desk. As a guest, we felt like as if we are not welcome to the hotel. The deluxe room is big & with awesome view. We were surprised that they have musical fountain at night just outside the hotel.

Room is large and spacious. With free and fast wifi. Has comfortable bed and pillows. However, all the furnishings are in need of refurbishing. Carpet is old, with various stains everywhere. TV is an old CRT TV. Didn't use it tho, so not sure bout the channels and all. Had a mini fridge that wasn't plugged in. No safety deposit... More

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.
