Probably one of the best Hotel althought it's not new but the view on the top floor is beautiful. The swimming pool is suitable for family too. The location is so accessible to all attractions and restaurants. Should stay for at least two nights if you are passing by Malacca.

Been to this hotel more than 5 times and each time, never a let down. The staffs are friendly and fast, breakfast was great and the room was clean with comfy big bed. The best part of this hotel is the location. It is smack in the middle of the town with just walking distance to historical places and shoping... More

I stayed at level 9 for 2 nights. The room is spacious and nice though need minor refurbishment. The staffs were excellent, they just dont stop smiling. They even opened and hold the lift for you. Breakfast was good, and the staff were really helpful. Overall, I love my stay in this hotel.

Nice Hotel. Room is spacious thou view was not so. After staying a few days staying in the hotel, refurbishment requirement may be noticed here n there, but minor and trivial. Overall, the stay was fantastic. Lovely pool 😬. I cannot stress enough on how wonderful the location of the hotel is. Thumbs up 👍

I read the previous reviews and was wary to go, but when I got there, there was nothing to worry about! This 5 star property is undergoing a refurbishment, so while there were a few bump marks on the furniture and the carpet probably has seen better years, the room is still squeaky clean and fresh smelling. I was informed... More

We had pre booked this hotel situated in the heart of town. A wonderful 5 star experience. The foyer coffee shop and cakes were out of this world. We dined at the 'Nyonya' restaurant in the hotel enjoying local food specific to this region of Malaysia. The room was spacious and comfortable, the staff were excellent and welcoming. We were...

Being simple is the key for me, just the basic amenities will do to ensure I have a good sleep and a nice bath. Like the place being that is located near to those tourist attractions without have to walk a great length.
