I stayed one night in this hotel to break a driving trip in Peninsular Malaysia. Perhaps it was because it was the eve of Hari Raya (which celebrates the end of the Ramadan fasting month of the Muslim calendar) but the hotel seemed desperately short of staff. We found that the rooms were not ready even after we were issued... More

Located right in front of Melaka River, this hotel offers parking at its location. You'll need to pay RM50 deposit for check-in, either by card or cash. The room was generally in a good condition. Jonker Street is walking distance, along the Melaka River. Breakfast was not good, better have it someplace else. In general, would recommend to stay at... More

Check in was totally disorganised, after eventually being attended to we were asked to pay a RM50 deposit, even though I paid on credit card. Room was very tired and generally lacking any maintenance,... More

Need to walk 20-30 minutes from attractions, otherwise need to take taxi which is not advisable in Melaka because of swindler drivers. No nearby groceries and restaurants. Aircon not so cold and wifi is slow in the room. TV show only local channels which I don't understand.Good breakfast selection though. Good enough for overnight stay. Anything longer, look for other... More
