We opted for Club Room after reading elaborate details on the hotel website about the rooms and 'Club Floor'. For check-in we were directed to 21st floor for priority check-in (we thought our room will also be in the same floor). After check-in, we were directed to our room which was on 12th floor. This process was unnecessary and little... More

Also a shopping mall across the street. the rooms are perfect and currently being upgraded. but..........all rooms are facing the front of the hotel which is one of the most busy traffic hubs in the city. traffic and noise continue until very late in the...

Everything was well and good from the time we came till the time we left. The door guy was so helpful that he even parked my car for me (at no valet charge). They then quickly unloaded our luggage and we proceeded to the 21st floor (Equator Club) for check in. There were welcome drinks. The staff were friendly and... More

Location: It is situated right in city center of Malacca. Room & amenities: I booked their premier room which is pretty spacious. It is around 33 sqm. The room interior is pretty ok. It has a working desk area and I like the part where it has an extension which seems to function like a bay window day bed! The... More

We were 3 couples staying at the Hotel. We had booked through Groupon beacuse we thought we were getting a good deal but after the weekend levies, we found that it ended up being rather expensive. (Almost S$160 per room per night). We had the premier rooms which were very nice. The rooms were large in size with a lovely... More

We are staying at 17th Floor Premium Room. Fast check-in. Surprisely the room is spacious and clean. As per all other reviews, this hotel is located in a central/city area of the history town. Not far from Jonker Street either. However the only disappointed part would be the toilet. Seem that the recent renovation did not cover the toilets which... More

We stayed here for a long weekend earlier this year. It was a comfortable short stay overall. As many have pointed the location of the hotel is quite good as you are just across the road to shopping malls and a short walk from Jonker Street. Hotel also has a large parking space. The room we were initially given next... More

The hotel has maintains a good balance by providing modern amenities while enabling guests a taste of the Straits Chinese Heritage. It's excellent location means most of the places of interest are within walking distance. This way we don't have to feel guilty if we indulge in the local cuisine. We can always feel comforted knowing we can burn off... More
