I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. It is lovely historic building which has been tastefully restored by YTL. But: • The hotel is a long walk from the centre of things – the walk is a good 20 minutes along the river boardwalk into town and some of the boardwalk does not feel safe when you walk along...

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Colonial style hotel with extremely comfortable rooms. Felt like we had gone back in time but with all modern amenities. Easy access to river and shops etc. Did not get time to use the pool but it looked very inviting. We will return!

Vastly overpriced with few amenities. Very little public space, tiny pool in a tiny space. The hotel is noisy with poor soundproofing so you hear everything from around you, the wi-fi is dismal and disconnects all the time, there is no room service and the dining room only does about 12 dishes and when we ordered one night they didn't...

Took a quick trip from Raffles Singapore to the Majestic in Malacca - wood, fine linens and an historical feel which was common for both properties. All class and close to the canal where so much happens. Beautiful bathtub in the bathroom and very nice amenities.

Lovely hotel. Historical Colonial. Very nice rooms. Unusual layout. Big open room. If you need a lot of "bathroom privacy" this may be a problem. Great view. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good breakfast.

Very nice and classy hotel. Room is first class and the breakfast is outstanding. Staff very friendly but only speaking very little English. However I wondered why the front desk told us that booking.com charged my credit card for my 4 night stay in advance which is very unusual. Now we know why. The pool is so dirty it looks... More

What you see, is what you get. The Majestic Malacca exceeded all our expectations. Facilities and services were second to none. All the staff were pleasant and always greeted us with a smile. The SPA village got 2 thumbs up from my Mrs, and it takes a lot to impress her. The Majestic will definitely be our only choice of... More

The Majestic Malacca is a very attractive old Colonial-style building, unfortunately dwarfed by surrounding structures. When we were there in early January 2016, construction was going on along the road approaching the hotel, with hoardings making pedestrian access difficult. The hotel faces the river, which should make the views nice, but sadly the local authority has seen fit to build... More

Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted with very warm, helpful staff. The rooms were extremely well presented. The bed was fantastic- like sleeping in a cloud! The location of the hotel was great, within walking distance to all the points of interest. The staff really couldn't do enough for you. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and would definitely... More

Has been a while since my last review, anyways. Had cravings for a good Curry Laksa and needed a break from Kuala Lumpur, so we decided to stay a night in Melaka and checked out Majestic Hotel. When we arrived, we were greeted by a lovely host and ushered us to an old wooden sofa and served us a cold... More
